    Is just one of those movies you cannot watch on TV, you should watch it Unedited. That way you get teh full effect of whats really happening with the changing of someone life. For anyone who has not seen the movie, its a Very harsh movie, definently not for the week hearted.

    I agree, excellent movie, brilliant performances.
    See if you can find Romper Stomper at the video store. Makes American History X look like a my little pony convention.

    Ed Norton is buff in that movie. He wasn't the big in Fight Club, but it looks like they were made around the same time. WTF?

    Pretty much anything with Ed Norton is a good film, although Im not as fond of 'Death to Smoochy' as some are.

    I know many people that think that movie is pro-racism.


    Idiots.

    I've yet to watch it. It was on FX last night and I tuned in for awhile and thought "This probably doesn't have the punch of the theater version. I better go rent it instead." Turned it off and read a chapter of my book. I'll try to rent it this weekend.

    No matter how many time I've seen that movie, I still cringe during that scene

    awesome movie. we watched some segments of that movie in one of the gang schools i was in because it portrayed the mentality of extremists and how hard it is for them to understand reason and order.
    between this movie and fight club...Ed Norton = awesome! :thumb:

    Defenetly a good choice, While I was suprized how much was left in on Fx last night, which would be why I made the post. There is just too much cut out of it, defently go rent it.

    Exactly, while there may be alot of racism in the movie, thats not what its about, and not what it is trying to promote. It is in fact promoting the exact opposite.
