    Which Movie Doesn't Suck?

    Django Unchained
    Jack Reacher
    Zero Dark Thirty

    I have to go to one this weekend and these are my only options. I have negatives on all of them so if the consensus is they all suck, can I get an opinion on which one sucks less? Many thanks.

    I saw Zero Dark Thirty last night. I thought it was great. It's 2 1/2 hours, but it doesn't feel that way at all. Just really tense the whole way through. The beginning is tough as it starts with some pretty rough audio and some detailed torture scenes. But I disagree with anyone who didn't like it.

    Instead of seeing something that sucks the least, see This is 40. F@#&ing hilarious. A bit long at just over 2 hours but well worth it

    I saw that too. I just thought it was uncomfortable and only occasionally funny.

    I'm going to see Django Unchained tonight. I like the cast and story line.

    With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

    It was rated 8.8/10 .

    Well, I have only seen one but can definitely recommend Zero Dark Thirty - espc if you've got an adult crowd.

    The first half of Django Unchained is the best Tarantino movie ever.

    But the second half is so brutally bad that you wind up hating the whole thing.

    Not on your list is the movie you should see: Silver Linings Playbook.

    I'm interested in seeing that too. Bradley Cooper having a serious side to him is hard for me to envision considering he was the main doofus in charge in the Hangover movies, but I've only heard good things about it.

    This is a slam dunk, heard it's awesome.

    Tarantino movies are a must see for me. Just like I see all of Daniel Day Lewis movies and Clint Eastwood.

    The movies are generally high quality and interesting.

    Movies are like coaches you have to eat the chicken and throw away the bone.

    Cooper is quietly turning into a very fine actor.

    Silver Linings Playbook sucks.

    Do not waste your money.

    They all kinda suck. I'd rather sit threw Red Dawn. Flight is worth a watch.

    Jack Reacher sucked, mostly because of Tom Cruise.

    Love the books, huge fan, and was so bummed when the midget got the part. Who better to play a 6'5" 250 lb killing machine?

    Exactly, the role just didn't suit him and the movie suffers because of it.
