Just got done seeing this one with the wife (one of the perks of doing security at the ol' movie theater is free tickets that we hardly ever use because of Bob Jr.) in 3D. Totally mindblowing from a visual standpoint. The story was good, but this one's all about the effects. See it, in 3D if that's available in your area.

I'm hoping to catch it in IMAX sometime over the next week. It's pretty long, isn't it? Did you find yourself looking at your watch at all during the movie?

Yeah, it one of those movies that could never be fully appreciated without seeing it in 3d. Unlike most 3d films, there are not many scenes that were set up to just have things fly in your face. In stead, they filmed a beautiful movie that happened to really shine with 3d technology...without the cheesy scenes of crap flying in your face.
I thought the story was pretty good. Essentially, it is Dances with Wolves with some phenomenal graphics and breathtaking scenery. I really liked the film. It had enough action and visual appeal that my 8 & 11 year old boys liked it and it had enough story that my wife seemed to really enjoy it, too.

Dances With Wolves is a pretty good comparison, from a storyline perspective. There is no comparison with regards to the visual effects, though. IMAX would be seriously bad ass.

We plan on seeing it, but I am thinking we going to see some Sherlock Holmes this weekend..........Swamp Mafia

Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

Been holding off on a blu-ray player, but this one might make me take the plunge when it comes on out on DVD.The truth is you're the weak, and I am the tyranny of evil men.

I'm tryin'...real hard...to be the shepherd.

From a technical standpoint the movie was completely amazing. It's the beginning of a new generation of special effects that are mind boggling.
That said, the politics just sucked. Why do these hollywood idiots insist on offending half their audience? I'll never watch this movie again, and I won't buy it on disc.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I finally saw this, and in IMAX. I thought it was great fiction and the effects were spectacular. It is really long, I wasn't sure it would keep me engaged but it did.

I know! I thought the same thing!"If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
