You Must Watch This Movie. Friendo

The Academy Awards came and went. Other than Glen Hansard winning best original song for the movie Once and Diablo Cody winning best original screenplay for Juno, the only other award I cared about was Javier Bardem winning best supporting actor for his role in the movie No Country For Old Men. He was one super badass in that film. Critics hailed him as the most haunting villain since Sir Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs but I actually thought Anton Chigurh was way more creepy than Hannibal Lecter.

No country For Old Men was a fantastic film but I didn't completely understand the ending until smarter folk explained it to me. It really is interesting to see how each character reacts when confronted with pure evil. Keep that in mind if you watch the film. Here is the best scene from the best movie of the year. Who knew a coin toss could be so intense?

you should watch it! the guy ain't gonna hurt you. just make sure not to watch the movie alone. or in the dark. or before you go to bed. and you should totally rock that dudes hairstyle. that'd be sweet.
