    Anyone seen this recently? Watched it last night for the first time since seeing in the theater. Holy crap, what an amazing film. See it twice if you have not already.

    I think the part that got me the most was that the time traveler from the future loved listening to advertisements on the radio. So awesome.

    Good movie. Been awhile since I saw it though.

    Willis is the man.

    Sticks in your mind, that movie.

    Also, check out the original short-movie, La Jetée.

    One of my favourites! It's on my short list of movies I watch every year. Also props to Brad Pitt for playing the lunatic; something he has done well in other movies too.

    My favourite classic remains Terminator 2 though. As simple as it may be on the surface, the asmosphere and ideas behind that movie are hard to forget. Just the intro of a burning playground is enough to make me shiver. Not to speak of that nuclear bomb-vision...

    Great movie.

    Bruce Willis is my favorite actor, I really liked Surrogates as well.

    I feel like this movie was ahead of its time. It makes more sense today than it did when it came out. "Wait, they gave you drugs??" lol

    Good movie! Can't go wrong with Willis. Another similar epic movie: "Contagion". Check it out!
