Fast Food Nation

We watched Fast Food Nation tonight. What a disappointment.

Linklater had a real opportunity there to make a fantastic movie and instead he shit the bed.

Have you seen it? What did you think of it?

    Oh no! What a disappointment. I’m sorry to hear that it sucked. I don’t think i’ll spend the $ to support it…

    hi sarah,
    i so agree with you. i think it was a terrible movie. he should have made a good documentary, instead he made a silly melodramatic love story which doesn’t bring the point across at all.

    I loved the book but when I heard that they were making it into a movie rather than a true documentary I was disappointed. Doubt that I’ll be seeing this one.

    When I found out the book was being made into a movie, I just couldn’t see how they were going to pull it off without making it a documentary. Well, they didn’t pull it off very well, did they? However, I do have to say that the final scene with Sylvia working at the slaughter house has really stuck in my mind.

    Haven’t seen the movie.

    But that second paragraph has to be the most perfect and concise movie review I have ever seen. Just beautiful.

    I enjoyed the book and the flick as well. I was expecting a documentary style but was surprised by the quirky yet dark aspects of the storyline.

    I have to say it left a strong impression in my mind and a lot to think about. Next on my list to read: Diet For A New America.

    It was the worst movie ever.
    I had such high expectations.
    What a waste.

    i saw it, and i also had really high expectations. the part with avril lavigne really pissed me off. i don’t know if i was annoyed with the movie or who that group of college kids was portraying though. I feel like if you are even vaguely familiar with cows, they are generally scared of people and don’t move fast.

    the only part i liked was about the immigrants. i felt that was more true to the book. and what really happens.
