But the movie is really great! For sure it gets into my list of 50 best movies of the decade.
In visual effects, it is something unbelievable!
I dislike science fiction so I don't know why I should pay money to see this. I will wait until it is on tv. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to reading Bilbo's review. He will probably write that he has just seen the best movie in history.

if you think so you first have to find out which is my favourite movie or better say which i think is the best.

however, i feel that your assumption about my review might be wrong. i can assure you that it won't be the best movie in history. all i said was it might be the best movie of the decade. but there's still lord of the rings which already is one of the best movies of all-time.

Not true, overrated. 12 Oscars way too much.

Like Slumdog Millionare, no way that movie was 8 Oscars worth.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

My son saw this last night and said it was the best movie he ever saw. Trust me that says a lot

Some people are saying it is akin to seeing Star Wars for the first time in 1977.

I saw this movie yesterday. The visuals are stunning and it's an entertaining movie but nothing spectacular. Also it is too long and I got bored the last one hr of the movie. Still a lot of amazing work into creating the visuals and worth a watch for that.

The movie is simply the GOAT of visual side. But it is not just a popcorn movie, like 2012, Transformers or Spider-Man.
I put it into my list of top 20 best movies of the decade.

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

That really doesn't sound like a good story

Going to see it tomorrow, we'll see how I like it then.

That's what I thought: hyped to hell because of its visual but lacking in the story-telling aspect. I'll gladly skip

So far it's been mostly geeky boys (the "Lara Croft was my first crush" types) creaming themselves over this movie. I'll wait to see what the word-of-mouth is from the women before I see it.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
