No, but when you only have so few posts and then start spouting off crap it makes that person look like a troll.

You can't compare 'Groundhog Day' and 'Lost in Translation' because they're different genres. Doesn't matter if they have the same actor in them. You'd never compare 'Braveheart' with 'What Women Want' just because they both have Mel Gibson in them.

Great movie. Try watching it again in ten years if you hated it. Funny how movies grow on you as you get older and realize where they were coming from.

I agree. Lost in Translation really captures the disorientation and loneliness of international business travel, something few films try to explore (Up in the Air did a brilliant job of this for domestic business travel.) People who has travelled to Japan and felt "lost in translation" will immediately connect with the film.

One of my favorite films. Maybe the fact that I wasn't all about the explosions and nakedness, like other 16 year-olds, helped my enjoyment of the film.

They're in the deleted scenes of course.

I LOVE this movie.

Yeah, it isn't some action showpiece but it is intelligent and moves along well enough. Having been to Japan and seeing that so much of what was shot is actaully real, including the crazy TV host, only adds to the movie for me.

I have the HD DVD, but this is a first day purchase for me. My favourite film ever and I fully agree with the score. Those saying it's boring must have attention deficit disorder. Do you only like Michael Bay films?

No, the reason is that it was improvisation by Bill Murray not meant to be heard by anyone but him and Scarlett Johansson.

As for Lost In Translation itself, it is one of my favourite films of all time. I saw it before my first trip to Japan (which will always be special to me for the reasons we went and the experiences we had) and the film really brings back some very pleasant memories, so I always watch it if I need a pick-me-up. I love the Charlotte and Bob characters and find their respective existential crises to be fascinating.
