nah na nah nah


here is one from a regular fan

culled from imdb

Quote:
Simply put; this movie is Awesome!! I saw it recently here in Germany and I'm not allowed to write about it but who cares. I have nothing bad to say about it anyway and I won't spoil anything! But I'll tell you about my feelings of this movie. This movie pulls you through your entire range of emotions in a short span of time, and you'll feel drained when you exit the theater after seeing it.

This is a special movie. Normally when you have multimillion effects shot in a movie the director does everything to make sure the audience see these effects from the best possible angle so that no money on effects are wasted.

In this movie it's a whole other deal. Spielberg shows his genius with this movie by letting the action and effects shots be a natural part of the movie and it makes it much, much better and much more harrowing to watch. Sometimes it feels like watching the footage from some poor embedded journalist in a conflict somewhere. You see people running and in the background you see glimpses of extraordinary and terrifying things happening. Sometimes you see full shots of attacking aliens but it's very "random" and it's never predictable as to what comes next. I LOVE THE ACTION IN THIS MOVIE. Just wait, it's hard to explain.

This is also a horror movie, and think back of the little boy in the kitchen in "Close encounters". This is a classic scene that demonstrates how effective Spielberg can build tension especially using light. Now multiply this scene by 5 and you'll have an idea of some of the scenes in this movie.

This movie is also shocking. You have scenes of people being thrown in huge cages where they crush each other to death and characters that you would never think will get hurt, well they... Well, wait and see. You'll be shocked.

This movie is as far from ID4 as possible so people expecting ti see ID4ever will be disappointed. This is smart sci-fi, effective horror, touching drama and crazy action all blended seamlessly together by Steven Spielberg. This is THE movie of the year!!!!

I'm sure visually it will be amazing. I'm disappointed though that the original subtext meaning of the story (about the decline of the British Empire - or about power in general) will/has been replaced by another simplistic Tom Cruise Saves The World story. But I will definitely see it, see how that works out.

Drudge Report has some review tidbits and an entire review from Variety

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER: ALIENS IMPRESS, BUT LACKS HUMAN IDENTITY...

SACRAMENTO BEE: DOESN'T SET ITSELF APART...

LA DAILY NEWS: THRILLING, BUT REMAKE EVENTUALLY RUNS OUT OF AMMO...

NEW YORK TIMES: 'REASONABLY ENTERTAINING RENDERING'...

SAN JOSE MERC: 'A PICTURE WITHOUT A THOUGHT IN ITS PRETTY HEAD; NOT END OF WORLD, JUST WISH IS WERE BY END OF MOVIE'...

AP: DISJOINTED AND EPISODIC, ALIENS LOOK 'BEGGED, BORROWED AND STOLEN FROM EVERY RECENT MOVIE'...

ORLANDO SENTINEL: 'GRIM, HEAVY AND PONDEROUS'...

I like Spielberg, TomKat is a charismatic actor, and the movie has scary aliens... mark me down as going to see the flick. The preview was great too.

I lied. My local theatre wasn't showing it at midnight.

But tomorrow the brand new theatre opens up in my modest town (the closest one before was in Arlington) and I'll go see it there.

We finally got a movie theatre! Just got a Taco Bueno a few months ago too . All that's left is a Best Buy, and that'll be here in the fall. Too bad I'll be at university three hours away then.

I wanna stay here now.

My wife definitely won't - no Tom Cruise for her.
