comes out tonight, in about 15 mins from this point in time
going to see it friday night.
I'm going to try to see that one in theaters, even my best friend wants to see it.
I knew there was a film I had to see this week. The trailers on tv look good. I bet it's highly allegorical (even I worked out what Alien Nation was about ) but I love sci-fi so this is on the list.
It does seem a bit more of a modern Alien Nation, only in Alien Nation they really didn't want to go home.
the first trailers looked stupid to me the newer ones make it look much better
the early ones made it look more like a video game than a movie
and i only see a slight link to Alien Nation
in AN they were happy to be here and were being intergrated into the social networks
it seems like this one we are actually holding them against their will somehow
i'll likely wait for it to come out on DVD, but i will see it
When it comes to parables and metaphors in film I'm hopeless. The theme has to be just about sub-titled for me to get it - that's why I mentioned Alien Nation. Even then it took me about a half hour to pick it up
D9 looks a bit more in your face with it. I like the fantasy tech they have in the previews, that's what caught my attention ... didn't expect much from the first few previews but then I went onto the website and got hooked. This could be the next great fad since ID4.
friend went to the opening, said it was bloody and violent all the way through. will see what peter jackson has pulled out of his hat.
Going in an hour and 15 minutes. I'll put it this way: out of 1,300 votes on IMDb, it has an average rating of 9.1, higher than any other movie right now. We'll see tomorrow what the viewers really think about it when IMDb updates their ratings for the day. I could see this movie opening up in IMDb's Top 10, for sure.
Abso-fucking-lutely 100% amazing. I thought at first the camera was going to make me nauseous a la Cloverfield, but it doesn't. There was just one scene where the documentary crew gets shaken up during some gunfire, but it actually adds to the film. Other than that the camera work is top notch.
The special effects weren't over-the-top, which I liked. There were enough to make the action exciting, but not so much as to make it seem like they were covering up for the story. Which brings me to the last point, the story is fantastic. They introduce the aliens as nothing but dirty, filthy subhumans. By the end of the movie, you will find yourself attached to the ugly creatures.
All in all, the best movie I've seen in a while.
