    is there any hint of scientology in this, i got the feeling that the story was a bit similar to the whole Hubbard nonsense

    Not as good as I expected and drags a bit in the middle. There are an awful lot of cliches too

    meh its a tom cruise film, they are usually crap, interview with a vampire was good, minority report was ok but mostly hes dreadful

    another naff actor whos status gets good films made and then ruins them by conforming to hollywood cliches is- will smith, he and his son have a similar scifi effort on the way

    meh, going to see it this afternoon with a couple of patients… to be honest the more painfully cliche and predictable a film is the better for them as anything more complicated than a disney film leaves them confused and frustrated

    The Guardian review is enough to put me off. That and the trailers I have seen.

    Only recently, Tom Cruise looked as if he was attempting to grow twelve inches to play tall tough guy Jack Reacher; now his role-model appears to be Wall-E, the diminutive cartoon automaton left behind on a wrecked planet Earth to clean up. Sadly there’s none of Wall-E’s spark in this bafflingly solemn, lugubrious and fantastically derivative sci-fi which serves up great big undigested lumps of Total Recall, AI, Planet of the Apes – with little snippets of Top Gun.

    That makes it sound quite good to me!

    Well the cinema trailer I saw last time I was at Cineworld looked bad enough so I was doubtful about seeing it, this thread has firmed up that thinking.

    The new World War Z trailer is way better than the first one.

    I liked the bit with Patrick Stewart. “Hi, I’m an expensive voice actor so I’ll be dead soon, then you can break out of the prison”

    Strange description of a film ?

    I quite liked it. I knew it wasn’t going to be mentally challenging or change my world.

    It was just a film, and it did what it was supposed to do, it entertained me for the couple of hours I was watching it.

    stuff the film THIS is the oblivion you want 😀 infinitely better than anything with tom “thumb” cruise in it 😉

    I heard the review by Empire magazine on 6Music this morning, and they were ok with it. I’d rather take the opinion of a media-specific magazine than some random bods on teh interwebz. 😉

    Why is it so bloody difficult to make a decent sci-fi film? Moon was the last one I thought was any good.

    We were talking in the office t’other day and came up with a plan that they should ban the use of SFX for 5 years so they all start to think about how to make a good film again.

    perhaps they should also ban remakes
