New Movie opening tonight - "The Road"
« on: November 25, 2009, 06:18:25 AM »
The movie "the Road" opens tonight..   when I herd this was going to be a movie I was so glad.. it was a book I read a while back.. and after I started my PX research I read it again.. it is about post apocolpytic** earth, where an unexplained event wiped out nearly all of mankind, leaving nothing but bands of roaming people and ash on everything..   thats what caught my attention to read it again.. the author talks about ash being everywhere .. as if a massive super volcano blew and just spewed tons of ash and soot into the atmosphere..   

Personally if you ask me this is a worst case scenario for mankind. Where people are reduced to roaming packs of thieves and without anyone to provide food most have turned to canabalism to survive. I don't know how graphic the movie will be.. the book was quite graphic and even turned my stomach at times.. but I am an avid reader thus I have a very vivid imagination.

here is the IMDB link to the movie

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0898367/

Korath forgive it I wanted to put the movie title The Road on your subject, Topic title...
Too late to see it in theaters but worth it to rent it or it maybe out in PPView ?- Yowbarb

Korath, thanks for posting about "The Road."
This movie came up in the old forum, and it is good to bring the discussion over here.

I just received the DVD Screener for "The Road".  I'll watch it later tonight and if you'd like I'll post on it.  Oh and I'm a Viggo fan!.

Archangel it is close to the book you should like it, they buried the movie it is very hard to find a place in Michigan to watch it, you have to drive for 40 miles to find a theater playing it.

Angle with your back ground I think that you would find real true to life. I saw it last week in Decatur. There were no adds for it, so I had been checking the web. Be sure to put it down as a "must see".

Well folks I got to watch the DVD Screener and like 53gil says and I agree that it is a "must see" movie.  I also appreciated Viggo's character in the movie because when it happens we all will have to have the same mind frame which I think is very overlooked.  Survival has to start in ones mind.  When that happens we will naturally do what else it takes to survive.

well I'm not a huge fan of these "watch a movie on the net" sites.. personally I'ld rather go see it in a theater, however seeing as the powers that be decided to put this movie in like 2 theaters and not let the rest of the US have the chance to pay to see it.. here is a link to it,   there is one section that seems to be missing.. when he finds the lock in the floor.. seems there is a good sized portion of the movie missing.. but it was worth watching anyhow.. at least till then decide to release a DVD
