The Road

Went to see "The Road" last night at the Sunshine Cinema on Houston;

It was amazingly shot with great cinematography, you didn't feel that there was any post processing in the visuals to make the scenes so grey (but there had to have been). Some of the canabilism scenes were a little gruesome and it was really interesting hearing people talking about the differences in the book.

I'm not sure everyone will like it, but if you are a fan of movies with long 60 second pans and closeup window to the soul of the actors kind of moviews you'll love it. Currently has an 8.1 on IMDB.

P.S. my experience was slightly ruined by the woman who sat next to me, obviously bored with the movie but her date was enjoying it so she proceeded to eat an entire supersized bag of popcorn (crunch crunch crunch, rustle rustle) lol including tipping the bag up over her head to sweep out the last crumbs from the bottom - then sat there for 5 minutes fidgeting before getting up to go and buy another supersize bag of popcorn again lifting the bag for the last vestiges of cancer causing butter flavor enhancement. She was this super skinny waif chick and it would have been funny if it wasn't such a serious movie.

I gave her date the look of death as we were leaving and the response from his eyes was "yeh i know"
