Mike, you should admire the bravery of a film critic who gives "FvJ" a higher rating than standard establishment fodder, like "American Beauty". Even when I don't agree with Mr. Chaw, I contemplate that his reading on a particular film is most likely more intuitive than my own take. Not that he needs me to defend him, but that's why I never miss his reviews. He's one of the best in the business. ML


I love reading Walter's reviews (especially when they're bad), but for the life of me, I don't get his film taste. Case in point, he gave Freddy vs. Jason a higher rating than American Beauty. Flash forward to the present, and Gravity gets a mild 2 1/2 out of 4. SMH.


money is tight right now so damn this movie for demanding the IMAX 3D experience, a.k.a. 20 bucks. and that's leaving the wife at home.

if i wait to watch this on my 40-inch it probably won't have a tenth the impact, right? again, dammit.


Interesting to read the comparisons to Avatar. The 3D was great, right? That's how I remember it, but in its drop from 'best movie evar' to mostly forgotten, those I've spoken to have also forgotten how awesome that 3D was. It's really too bad that we've been left mostly with mostly-crappy post-3D in its wake. Glad to hear that it can be serviceable put in the right hands.


I don't think the other commenters understand what cynicism is.


really, big time cynic!


Wow. What a cynic you are.
