Quote: Apocalypto gained some passionate champions in the Hollywood community.

Actor Robert Duvall called it "maybe the best movie I've seen in 25 years."

Director Quentin Tarantino said, "I think it's a masterpiece. It was perhaps the best film of that year. I think it was the best artistic film of that year."

Actor Edward James Olmos said, "I was totally caught off guard. It's arguably the best movie I've seen in years. I was blown away."

In 2013, director Spike Lee put the film on his list of all-time essential films.

I don't remember me being that blown away by Apocalypto, but I would like to nominate Raiders of the lost Ark in the adventure category.

Hey like what would this world be like if everyone liked the same thing? pretty friggin boring i would imagine! and i wouldnt expect too many of the female when harry met sally soap opera addicted drama queens to get very inticed by and excited about this intensely violent and amazingly kinetic epic adventure film (*=*)

Quote: "If you're tired of watching the same action movie over and over again and you've never seen "Apocalypto", I heartily recommend that you do. Please keep in mind this is a film that could be described as an "anti-chick-flick", in other words, it may be a bit more appealing for men than for women, (at least based on the reaction of the audience I shared my theatrical viewing with). Also beware if violent scenes make you squeamish (you may want to skip the candy counter this time around). Otherwise you're in for a great cinematic experience" - Roger Ebert

I hope that you weren't thinking that I was implying about you personally in my post above because I wasn't at all I was just thinking and stating that many women probably wont like this movie just like I cant stomach even one minute of any soap opera like yuck! (*=*).

Absolutely loved 'Apocalypto'.

So cool that the characters did not speak Hollywoodish with an accent.

Got at least 4 doobies out of 5 from me.

"Hey like what would this world be like if everyone liked the same thing?"

and

People are different and they have different tastes, with so many great movies it is obvious that everyone has his own favourite that is different from others.

Plus that I think, when you watch a movie, how much you like it depends on your mood, the crave for a movie, even what you've heard about it makes a difference.

Sometimes you watch an overrated movie and be dissappointed,
sometimes you watch an underrated be overwhelmed

But Yes, Apocalypto is in a class of 'favourites'

Some other reasons for this films excellent realism are the facts that it was mostly and expertly filmed within real jungle locations and all of the actors and actresses were not famous and well known faces and voices I mean like thank gawd Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman and Sarah Jessica Parker were not running around this epic adventure film dressed up and trying to act and talk like Mayans (ha haa haaa haaaa haaaaa) because if they were in my opinion this film would not have been as great as it is and would have been virtually almost ruined...

Just curious to ask you what would be some of your 5 doobie movies?!
