With all the positive reviews, I just might have to see this one.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Three hours is long... but LotR movies were close to three hours and they were great.
First of all, and this is for you acs, if there's only one movie you see in the theaters all year, this should probably be it. I'm thinking that the scope of this movie will be lost at home. Personally, I never, ever go to see comedies in the movie theater. i don't think seeing comedies in a theater adds anything to them and that I have the same amount of enjoyment of them at home. Same with most dramas.
But films like this, just like the LOTR series, just HAVE to be seen on the big screen with the surround sound and the popcorn... I'm going to see it this afternoon and I've planned accordingly. I think 3 hours is long for any more, and I usually crap out after 2 on most, but that's typically because they're crappy.
This movie though is getting phenomenal reviews... this isn't just another Independence Day or, God forbid, Godzilla... do you know what the tomatometer gave it? A 92%. Wow!
Also, the 1976 version was complete and total garbage compared to the 1933 version which was practically made as an advertisement for the empire state building. This version is an homage to the original masterpiece and completely reject that 70's garbage version. That's why there's dinosuars in this one.
Anyway, I'm going this afternoon. I'm going to sneak in a lot of candy and wear comfortable pants, because I ain't got nothing else to do. So, I will return with my review this evening.

Same here and ditto. It wasn't as good as Batman Begins - a movie I felt just had more quality to it - but it was a great action flick. Once the movie gets going on the island, it's like a roller coaster that just gets faster and faster.
Am I the only one who thinks Naomi Watts is gorgeous? I mean, yeah, Jessica Alba and Jessica Simpson are hot and all, but Naomi Watts is just distractingly gorgeous... is it just me? I love her... and her boobies, after I saw them in Mulholland Dr.
