    I've sorta stayed away from this one because I'm not too good with graphic violence, but I think I'm going to give it another watching.

    Daniel Day-Lewis' performance is ridiculously good. He deserved an Oscar.

    I saw it the first weekend it came out. I had high hopes and came away monumentally disappointed in it. Day-Lewis was brilliant and should have won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. Other than that, meh. Diaz was passable. Leo was dreadful.

    Holy shit. I figured I was the only one in the country who was watching this.

    I had no clue John C. Reilly was in this.

    John C. Reilly is in every movie.

    I liked this movie better ... when it was called The Warriors.

    Nothing like a vaguely Joe Thiesmann-like psychopath defiantly clicking bottles before getting getting his from the Riffs, who would totally kick Public Enemy's S1W's asses.

    Meanwhile, the survivor spirit of The Warriors, and that of urban gangs everywhere, is perfectly embodied by that noted anthem of street toughs -- Joe Walsh's In The City.

    Now THAT'S some Gangs Of New York. As for the real thing? DDL rocked, the rest was mostly pretentious nonsense.

    I thought Leo was excellent in this. Of course, nobody compared to DDL, who stole the friggin' show (like everyone says he does in "There Will Be Blood" this year.)

    Diaz wasn't much, but I liked her character. She didn't ruin it for me, that's for sure. Love this movie.

    I still say Road To Perdition was the best movie that year.
