Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
« on: May 16, 2008, 07:58:36 pm »
It has to be one of my most favorite movies. Second on my list, next to Forest Gump. I mean, wow, I've seen nothing like it, yet. I know it's been out for a while, but I just watched it this year. One if Depp's finest performance.

I've heard mixed reviews about it. Is it anything like Requiem for a Dream or Trainspotting?

It's a just as great book! But seriously...Forest Gump??? That wouldn't even make my top 100...>_<

It's like Requiem For a Dream & Trainspotting only in that drugs are taken in all of them. I don't think there's anything that you can successfully compare Fear & Loathing to...

R.I.P. Hunter S. Thompson!!

I love Fear & Loathing so much, I've watched it three times this month. One of my favorite scene is the bathroom scene.
