Orphan movie

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Anyone else see this movie opening night? I though it was a fantastic movie it's better than what I thought it would be and is my fav movie of the Summer so far! I wont spoil it for you, but if you dont like scenes where things pop out or lots of blood you wont like this movie. Also it has adult content so not good for kids to see i'm warning you ahead of time I would NOT take your kids to see it with you.

I was in the theater till 12:30 AM seeing it and enjoyed every minute. Not one nightmare or anything.

I can’t wait to see this one! Plus every time a new horror flick comes out it means I get a fancy dinner date night! LOL.

My boyfriend and I love horror movies, I’m so glad you liked it. I was disappointed this morning when I heard our radio announcer say this movie sucked pretty bad. I loved “The Omen” we actually named our Rottweiler after the kid… is it anything like that movie?

I’m excited someone likes it! Its not everyday a new horror movie comes out so I am always excited when a good one is in theaters.

Lol I like the previews but if Esther is a ghost (or the ghost takes her shape) or connected to Satan in some way I will be sooo disappointed!! There are too many movies with a similar plot out there that it's getting old for me. Lol they need to come up with something new that's scary...

I think this is the type of movie found running late at night on cable in 4years or so. I kind of can't afford theaters these days. Glad your money was well-spent

I love scary movies, but my boyfriend doesn't... In fact, he pretty much refuses to watch them with me because he get's so scared.

So ever since I moved to Washington almost 2 years ago, I haven't been to the theatre to see any horror flicks, and I depend on a movie website to watch all my movies when he's not home.

I am so stoked that we're moving back to Michigan. My aunt Amy was my horror movie (and all around) buddy and I just can't wait to be able to go see all the new movies that are comming out in the near future!

That reminds me of being a young kid in Brooklyn and watching "The Shining" with my 3 cousins (we were all around the same age range) .. We knew all the lines by hart. "Heeeere's Johnny!" was our favorite because we knew exactly when Jack Nicholson was gonna say it so we'd all say it together and belly laugh alot. I can live without horror movies otherwise, but with friends to help you through 'em, they're alright I guess

OMG what a great movie! This had to have been one of the better movies i have seen in awhile... and what a twist!!! trust me, if you think you know whats going on...you don't!

I would totally recommend this movie to anyone who likes these sort of things. I wasn't bored for a second, nothing dragged, the acting was great, the script was great and the story was very different!

Just to add that the little daughter was soooooooo cute! I think she half made the movie with her messy hair and sucky face LOL. I think she was the cutest kid i have seen on screen in awhile.

This is nothing compared to Borat, this is full frontal, for many seconds, flopping around on the screen XD Many people left the theaters at that point.

IMO rotten tomatoes is wrong Bruno looks bad I wont even waste my money there's too many crude humor movies already it's getting old!

I don’t like Rotten Tomatoes. I think almost all the reviewers have different taste then me because I usually enjoy the movies they hated. I also find they are very retentive. They analyze everything. If 20min of an amazing movie has a bad script, but the rest of the script Is great, I find they give it a bad rating along with really putting the movie down. They are too picky, no movie, especially horror movies are perfect.

I usually look at IMDB for my reviews, they are usually right on for my tastes.

I probably wont see Bruno… for one, my dog will now forever be compared to him and made fun of LOL. Two, I hated Borat. I hated that he went to a third world country and totally humiliated and degrading extremely poor people. I totally enjoy stupid, gross, obnoxious humor. But not if I bullies defenseless people.

Orphan was awesome IMO. In reading reviews from other sites people are claiming it to be not the best movie or the year, but one of the best movies. If you like horror movies I would recommend this one!

Lol I am from a country from which they borrowed most of the music in Borat. 3 or 4 of the songs are Bulgarian folklore songs. Most of the things he does are made up. There is no way in hell someone from that country comes to the US will act anywhere near him haha. The point is not about trying to portray this country's culture in a demeaning way- he's trying to make it seem like the people he talks to are experiencing culture shock, which everyone has been taught to respect other cultures, so they try to take him seriously while he's really just an idiot and does stupid things that are impossible to be cultural. Anyone who doesn't understand that there is no country on the planet where it is culturally acceptable to do any of those things Borat does is just ignorant of the whole idea of the show so they think it's about making the country look bad..it can't possibly because it's a joke. He just picked the most unknown country he can think of so that he can be sure people don't know about it and it will be easier for them to take him seriously and make it more funny..The movie was a little too much because I don't think he genuinely went up to random people, I think they knew he was a joke from the start while in the show you can see the confusion in their eyes.

Hes a jerk. I read the people from the small town he made fun of sued him. The one girl didn't know he was saying she was his sister and the biggest prostitute in all of the country. She was crying in the picture i saw.

He told these poor people they were going to be filmed as a documentary to show how much they live in extreme poverty. They all thought they were going to show the world how much they suffer. Instead, he mocked them and shamed them. Not cool IMO.

He had a few other lawsuits i don't care about, like the frat boys and stuff... they were just being stupid. But picking on poverty stricken people... so not cool at all.

Orphan was so good I just saw it a 2nd time at the movies! I went with a friend and he was scared asking me when the scary parts were coming up he jumped many times and spilt his popcorn all over.

When I first saw the trailer for Orphan, I was expecting good things. But after seeing it, I'm extremely disappointed. Isabelle Fuhrman (who played Esther) did a great job with her role, but I thought Vera Farmiga (Kate) was horrible. Furthermore, I wouldn't classify this as a horror or even a thriller. I think mystery suits it better. I thought it was a bad movie with an interesting twist at the end.

As far as Bruno goes, I liked it. Most people think that Borat and Bruno are just comedies but what they are really doing is exposing some of the cultural stereotypes in the world today.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It looks much too scary for me. I like movies like Hostel that aren't really scary. I can handle the gore, but not the things jumping out.

I finally got to watch Orphan last night. A good copy finally came out on a reliable streaming site.

All I have to say is it wasn't really that scary... Or gory really. The only part that had me turn my head was the part with the vice.

Other than that, I thought it was an exellent movie, though it should have been categorized as a thriller/mystery/suspense instead of horror.

The only part that bummed me out was that I totally guessed the end before it happened. I suppose maybe I just know a bit too much for my own good?
