    i really liked it. I really identified with Clem in her speech about being 'fucked up' because I can see myself doing what she did - throwing away love because... well, just because. It scared me, because I'm engaged and theres no way I'd want to throw my love for Tim away.
    Also I like it at the end when they said they'd meet on the beech - it showed that true love can work through anything.

    I'm starting to think that I need to watch it. Maybe it was the fact that I saw a pirated version of it, that I never got the full effect....(Don't blame me! It never came to HK if I remember right...only way to watch it haha)

    Wicker Park was alright too...though I think the original french movie "L'Apartment" that it's based on had the atmosphere more tense and mystifying...though that was more confusing :S

    You're welcome :) Honestly, I think you'll enjoy it more if you like to think about what's happening especially. Wicker park wasn't as confusing as L'Apartment lol :p

    I love Eternal Sunshine... my boyfriend called the ending by the beginning of the movie though. Oh well. He also thinks I'm a lot like Clementine... i don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing though.
     
  15. Awesome movie. I saw it as soon as it came out in theaters, and then twice more once the dvd was out.

    It seems like such a creative Idea for a movie, Like mindblowing creative. I saw kirsten dunst on a talk show before it premied and she was saying how all of the "special" effects were just neat camera work. Like when jim carrey is walking around inside his head and you can't see the people's faces in the back ground... That's just a semi transparent white sheet being held right behind him.

    I noticed a lot of stop action sort of work too... with like the book shelves dissapearing as jim was trying to save clementine from being erased.

    So everyone go rent this movie, if not buy it.
     
  16. Ahhh! Well, despite the fact it makes me cry everytime i watch it, it is completely "awwww"ing, i wish every day could be passed like there time lieing on the ice or playing with pillows, but i guess eventually it can be acheived eh! Anyways grand and powerful movie, didnt just go over the same ol' jazz like everything else, plus Alexander Pope is an awsome poet!

    My ex-boyfriend saw it while we were dating and hounded on me to see it for that entire 5 months. I finally watched it when it came out on DVD after he had left for college and I understood why he was so obsessed with it. I was amazed. I've never really been a big fan of Jim Carrey's serious roles, but he was...amazing. And it brought about such a great message. So many people take their memories for granted. I know it certainly made me look upon the heartache of the happy memories in a totally new light. I'd much rather be in pain for awhile over great memories that will end up causing me to smile later in life than to lose those memories forever.

    The soundtrack is also amazing. "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO has become my all-time favorite song. I loved Eternal Sunshine so much I bought the movie. That says a lot, because I usually can't stand to watch a movie more than once. I've seen it 4 times since October.
