I just saw it for the first time, like ten years late apparently. It was on cable TV so I'm assuming it was somewhat watered down, but I was not overly impressed considering what I've heard people say about it before. The ending was pretty predictable, I thought the last two kills were going to be Brad Pitt's wife and her unborn fetus (and I really thought it was going to be the fetus when the box arrived). But then once all that shit went down I really thought a better ending would have been for Brad Pitt to cap himself instead of or in addition to Kevin Spacey.
Anyway there was this thing on the Weather Channel earlier about people who live in these Antarctic bases at the South Pole year-round. That was way more interesting than Se7en. They live in this big dome that basically has a small town inside of it, complete with a library and a bar and everything. Since they're so far south, they literally have no sun from March to September, so they're pretty much trapped in there. I think it'd be pretty cool to do that for a year.
So yeah talk about whatever you want I guess, I just wanted to share my channel surfing results of this idle Wednesday night.

I have no idea. It's been in the making for like 3 years now. I just hope it doesn't suck.
Converting the graphic novel to a screen play seems like it'd be really difficult, the way it was set up with constant jumping back and forth between different places and times. Plus the whole "graphic novel within a graphic novel" subplot would be nearly impossible to integrate into a film version and have it make sense to the casual viewer.

Funny you should say that. That WAS going to be the ending but it was someone decided it was a bit much (I'd say that line was crossed with the Spiked dildo XO ) also Morgen Freeman was going to shoot Kevin Spacey (and say some kickass lines while doing so) but Pitt insisted that he was going to be the one to do it.
