5. Yes, yes, and yes!
I thought it was a brilliant movie. Very light on the dialogue, which is something I really like when the movie is this good.

If I could, I would give it FIVE stars.

My rating: FIVE stars

6. Why are they depriving male senior citizens of country music?
Doesn't sound like much of a plot. ;)

12. Boy, that's a tough call...
I think it might be. A couple of the people we went with last night thought it was boring. I was almost on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. It wasn't big on dialogue - it was sort of a thinking movie. Just brilliant.

15. I think so too. It's going to be right up there at the very top at the end of the year.
It was just a brilliant piece of film making.

13. I'm saving this as a Thanksgiving treat
we're going to go as a family after our feast. We're all Coen Bros. freaks. And I like Cormac McCarthy.

16. I've seen previews for it.
It looked like a must see.

No questions. I'll go see it sometime soon.
