    I really enjoy watching "The Road". However my wife says its the saddest movie ever and she'll never watch it again. So.. I don't get to see it often.

    Totally agree. I don't want to watch a movie without. If I hear a great movie doesn't have a happy ending I'll skip it. I don't care how good it is. Life's too short.
    Seriously. I was really surprised. Major downer movie.
    I read The Road after watch No Country for Old Men. Thought it would fit well with my current infatuation with zombie/EOTW. Saw the movie after reading the book. Your wife is right. The movie was dead on accurate. I don't know why I wanted to watch it in the first place.

    Willy, you appear to be a bundle of contradiction wrapped in an enigma.:p

    Zombies and EOTW doesn't necessarily equal sad. For example I've read a zombie book where they did all the typical zombie stuff and they had a happy ending. I've also read zombie books that have a down right terrible ending. Death and terror isn't sad. I want the good guys to win every time. Don't try to "keep it real". Give me some hugs and smiles at the end!

    I thought it more interesting that you wanted to read The Road after watching NCFOM. I LIKE the gloomy stuff, and that was too much for me. The only McCarthy adaptation I want to watch again is The Sunset Limited w/ Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson. Fantastic movie! You wouldn't like it though, the good guy doesn't win.

    I was so pissed at this movie.
    The trailers for it made it look like a fun comedy about a wild and crazy dog. NAH.
    So sad seeing the marriage problems and then the ending.
    :censored: you trailer makers for tricking me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Read the book never saw the movie.... partially because after reading the book, I felt that the it was poorly cast purely for the sake of "star power." If it was anything like the book, I knew the trailers were totally misleading.

    I just got finished watching The Impossible, really makes you think about family and the fact it was a True Story based on true events with a real family, hits home. Teared up a good 3 times.

    Twas a good movie overall, makes you think.
