GREAT movie. Hilarious and sad, killer dialog, insanely beautiful shots of the West.

I usually like the Coen Brothers and this one was meh for me.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

James Franco’s line, “First time?” was priceless.

The wife and I caught it a month or so ago...enjoyed it immensely. Dark, beautifully filmed.

I as so pissed it was in the trailer. Best line in the movie, Franco was really good.

Definitely not what I expected but enjoyable. Really liked Tom Waits. They could've left off the last segment and I wouldn't have minded. Gonna try to work "pan shot" into daily use.

I loved it, although the bit with Liam Neeson was a bit darker than my usual taste. I sent my son upstairs before that particular scene ended.
