    The Greatest Film of All Time Just Came Out This Year. (And No, It Is NOT Avatar)

    I was just introduced to this film, The Cove, and I need to inform as many people as I can about it. I studied film for two years and this is by far the greatest film ever made. It is an entirely true story. Not a movie based on a true story, this is the story itself. This documentary proves how significant individuals can be if they choose to be activists, in a world of in-activists.

    Its a real life Oceans Eleven story. But way more badass.

    Here is the movies website.

    You will probably cry when you watch this film. If you believe we need to coexist compassionately with the living creatures of the planet, you defiitley will cry. And get angry. But then you will feel empowered and start asking what you can do about the issue. Right now, you need to watch this documentary.

    I had to ask my girlfriend to remember haha.. but I dunno. I really liked 2012 and I'm going to watch Avatar but that's going to be after new years but it still counts. I liked 2012 for it's environment.

    The "greatest film of all time" is supposed to be about dolphin food?

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.


    Edit: Go see the new Woody Allen.

    I know you are passionate about the subject, which is harrowing, but that doen't make it the greatest film ever. Retitle the thread if you want to get concerned people on board.

    I kind of think Avatar was the best film of this year. Avatar was really amazing. World building at its best!

    Weird, the critics tore it apart. I suppose I still should go see it and form my own opinion... and get drunk during the break if necessary.

    I still need to see Avatar, but I have a feeling that Up will end up getting my vote.

    Avatar was pretty to look at. but not that great of a movie.

    District 9 is the best movie of the year. a movie called Moon is close.

    Ahhh, I can't wait for Moon to come out, I still need to see it. District 9 is definitely high up. I just watched it a 2nd time a couple nights ago, still amazing.

    Who cares about movies. Why aren't y'all reading comics? Huh? HUH?

    Erm... District 9 was cool. I didn't see the whole thing, admittedly, but it was still damn cool. I hope the people who made that, like, go places and stuff.

    haha okay well, everyone, I have seen avatar twice. and its awesome. a huge technological showcase of the future of filmmaking. however this movie is really way better... i know it sounds like bs. but its really an example of filmmaking being used as a tool to do more than entertain. i have never seen such a powerful documentary before!

    but yes. avatar is awesome. just not the best, when compared to The Cove. Its so much more than a movie.

    and velderia: comics rule. Y the Last Man is currently my favorite series. check it out if you havent...

    Agreed. Especially since I went to see District 9 not even knowing what my friend had dragged me to watch and thus had no expectations for it whatsoever. As for Avatar, I took my mom to see it today=D. She really liked it. I've seen it twice now.

    I liked The Cove but its not the best movie as far as movies go... Its more informative than anything. Now, Black Dynamite was an awesome movie.
