A movie that gets murdered by people for reasons i can’t figure out, 2010s Robin Hood by Ridley Scott starring Crowe and Blanchett

Mathew Styles says:

thanks for ruining the end of Gone baby Gone……. EDIT: for fuck sakes this dudes just spoiling movies left and right, don’t take this asshole to a party

*sarcasm – for the idiots who can’t tell

Mathew Styles says:

Do you guys not know that the original ending got cut, where the aliens threaten to destroy the world with giant tsunami’s because of what humans have been doing to the world. it makes why the aliens are in the movie make alot more sense

Nathaniel Strangman says:

Im still waiting for the bluray Cameron said was coming

Markus Ahlström says:

I love The Abyss, it was one of my favorite movies growing up. There was something magical about the combination of scifi and thrilling action combined with awesome acting and the claustrophobic setting deep in the ocean. Still holds up, another Cameron masterpiece in my opinion.

Nathaniel Strangman says:

I wonder if theyve seen the Special Edition which is like 30 minutes longer and is really different apparently

Digitala Världen says:

The movie is his masterpiece, but it’s a bit hard to take two little men in suits seriously…

Gilberto Yañez says:

Ghai butchering my last name. My life is complete.

Nathaniel Strangman says:

The source of what i watched this movie was from Cinemax i think

Neil Hutchinson says:

This is easily one of Cameron’s best films, although I will admit the ending when the alien ship emerges from the sea does suffer from poor looking special effects.
The biggest benefit from this film has to be the morphing fx that went on to be used in Terminator 2.
