I am a false prophet and god is a superstition! -There Will be Blood

SPOILER WARNING!!!! For there will be blood!!  

 

This movie is awesome! It builds up a christian character and makes you hate him the whole movie, only for him to be bludgeoned to death by a bowling pin in the end!! Before he is bludgeoned the main character makes the preacher character say "I am a false prophet and god is a superstition!" That was awesome I gave a standing ovation in the movie theatre! Anyone else see it I thought it was great, also has a soundtrack by Johny Greenwood from radiohead!!!

Yeah this movie was amazing.  I don't think it would have been half as good though without that soundtrack.

Daniel Day Lewis puts on an excellent performance. The psychological battles between Ely and Daniel are phenomenol.

One goddamn hell of a show,

One goddamn hell of a show, no doubt about it.  Anybody else get the Kubricks watching the opening scenes?  Bunch of unspeaking primates in the desert while odd wailing voices bounce around atonally in the background?

 Definitely Kubrickian in

 Definitely Kubrickian in more ways than one.  PT Anderson was obviously heavily influenced by the great director.  A lot of the camera moves and tone are very reminiscent of Kubrick.  There Will Be Blood is one helluva movie though.
