Haven't seen it, or know anyone who has seen it. Chances are, it's not a serious contender, unlike a certain movie by Michael Bay.

Yes, Dances with Wolves both made (and broke) Kevin Costner's career. Sure, he won Oscars for it, but then he followed it up with crap like "Water World" and "The Postman."

I recently saw Dances with Wolves for the first time. I wasn't looking forward to it because of the 3 hour running time but I really liked it. It was fantastic! And it's like a sweeping epic! 9.5/10

I fell asleep about an hour and a half into this one. If my Netflix sleeve is
correct, I missed 12 minutes of this lame, derivative, and tiresome alleged
"thriller". The attempts to "scare" the audience could be seen from a mile
away.

Virginia Madsen is ok in her role here(you can also tell she's been smoking
like a chimney off camera), but the guy who plays her husband is miscast, as
I laughed when he was having his "meltdown". I would recommend him for
Worst Supporting Actor, but chances are he won't be remembered by the
year's end. I do however see this under a Worst Excuse For a Thriller/Horror,
if we use the category.

I hear Rush puts grounded up Oxycontin on his ice cream instead of sprinkles.

Oh.... so he's not fat, he just has alien ghosts living inside him... I understand. It all makes sense now! ...Do the Alien Ghosts crave Oxycontin?

Rush has a lot of alien ghosts attached to his body. Especially around his stomach.

President Rush.... Quite possibly the scariest thing I have heard in a long time...

 

Except maybe for those damned Beatnik alien ghosts...

I think it depends on state, actually... it is a percentage based thing... Someone ask Al Franken for the answer... He'll know.

I imagine the other reason that the movie failed was that once again, Kevin Costner set himself as the one with all the power. His vote was going to be able to change the course of history for good or ill.

Besides, if an election were ever that close, they would have the election tied up in legal red tape as the opponents sue and countersue for recounts for months and months...

Come to think of it, a race that close would seem to be against our entire electoral college system... since the folk in the electoral college have the power to make the votes, regardless of what the public wants...

...thinking about that movie makes my brain hurt...
