I thought this movie had potential and got insanely bad really fast.
I just couldn't take it seriously, like how fucking stupid are these characters?
The only good thing about the movie was it had some cool visuals, otherwise it was just time I will never get back.

Danny Boyle has such amazing vision, Alex Garland is such a great writer, Thailand is such a gorgeous backdrop

biggest mistake: casting Leo DiCaprio!

in all the interviews Danny Boyle openly admits that it was between Leo and Ewan McGregor (who was part of the runaway success formula since Shallow Grave!) and had they gone with Ewan they would've taken the film in a darker direction, which would have been much more in line with the book, not to mention the filmmaker's work to date

I don't think Boyle truly mastered genuinely uplifting content until Millions and should not have attempted anything of the sort with the Beach.

On your screen 8-)
This movie takes you on a journey with Leonardo dicaprio looking to find paradise but instead of finding paradise somewhere it hits him that it all starts with finding it in yourself
it then goes through so many thrills and excitements
great soundtrack too~!!!!!! makes me wanna dance in a tropical hulla dress and put on a slick pair of sunglasses
and be around thaliand french people!! smile
'i still believe in paradise, but at least i know its not some place you go, its how you feel for a moment in your life, & if you find that moment..It can last forever'
A must see !!!
