    Should I be embarrassed in saying that I've never heard of it?

    It's a good one. Good cinematography. I just do not feel like discussing it for the millionth time.

    Johnny plays a great role in the movie. So does Benicio. I actually watched that movie last night. i got stoned for the first time in a few months last night. Had fun watching it. "San Fransisco in the middle 60s was a very special time and place to be a part of."

    I like Hunter S. Thompson. I think he's a really cool, intelligent guy. But I found Fear and Loathing to be like watching a bunch of drunk people while sober. The movie started to annoy me after about 30 minutes. I liked the cinematography a lot, but the movie lacked substance. It got old fast. Seeing people take drugs doesn't necessarily amuse me.

    I like the parts of the movie that I have seen so far. Every time I try to watch it I am on something, so I never make it all the way through.

    This is a great movie, but you can't watch it while sober IMO. The best time to watch it is while tripping because everything makes sense. I watched it while sober and I had a hard time paying attention. But then I watched it while on mushrooms, and I couldn't stop laughing the whole time. Watching it high or drunk is good too, but the ideal is to be tripping.

    the book is great but depp and benicio did so well in the movie that it sort slightly kicks it in another direction

    Jennifer, have you seen "Where the Buffalo Roam"? That movie is a lot like Fear and Loathing, or on the idea at least. It is hilarious and the music is awesome.

    I have seen both movies 1/2 a dozen times. I will probably watch them a few more times. They are CLASSICS!!!!!
