The Natural is hands down one of my favorite baseball movies. Sorry if this was posted before, but it is that I'm really excited about this release.

Identity - SonyStyle.com

Has anyone seen Identity? Any good?
Thanks.

I saw Identity when it was first released. Don't remember much about it. IMO opinion it wasn't anything special...i think the ending was a bit messed up...but can't remember.

Identity was a great movie, went in with a low expectation but ended up being very good.

I have Identity on DVD and it's a good movie. But not good enough to rebuy ever again.

The ending really sucked, and damn near ruined what had been a pretty good flick up to that point.

Identity is a remake of 10 Little Indians by Agatha Christie, but with a twist. It was O.K.

Play nice. It's just an online forum :)

Identity was a good murder/thriller.

It was 90 minutes though (possibly less). Wonder what Sony's excuse is going to be for not fitting all the extras on there this time.

I have played Identity (SD DVD) over a dozen times for friends coming over for movie nights at my house and every one of them has loved the movie.
A great great movie (in my opinion).

Im supprised at the lukewarm remarks about this movie that have been posted so far.

And not to be forgot, Amanda Peet is in this movie and she is eye candy deluxe !!!

I'll absolutely pick up Identity, I loved the movie, and loved the ending. The movie had me guessing the whole time, and then it's like, BAM! YOU'RE WRONG!

I can't wait to see and hear it in HD.

Except, why did it have to be the freakin' kid? That was one of those "extra" twists tossed in there, just to make it seem more surprising, and that's where my problem with the ending lies. They could just have easily chosen someone else.

I loved Identity, if not only for a scene involving a baseball bat. Anyway, John Cusack, can do almost no wrong. I did not recognize Rebecca DeMornay at all.

For those interested in Identity, it looks like the overseas version will come with the writer commentary that was only available in other regions (never R1).
