We went to see The Taking of Pelham 123 the other week, usually the trailers for me are one of the best bits of going to the cinema and that was one of them, I think it looks totally crap, I love all these sort of things usually too but I reckon they've showed you the best bits in the trailer and that you'll be disappointed.

Will still watch it but will wait til Lovefilm have it.

I also think that its gonna be one of those ones where people will see Peter Jacksons name and go OOOOOOO then ya realise that he probably didnt do much and there just using his name to promote it a bit more.

seeing it tonight... i saw the start of 1 trailer, then avoided them. if all the best bits are in there, id rather leave them as a surprise.

cant wait for 2012 / Avatar

the cut out in our cinema was at the top of the escalator.. i started squeeling as soon as i saw waves wiping out a sky scraper...

waves +sky scrapers = you know its going to be good.

check out the teaser trailer on you tube. its not very revealing - but the effects look awesome-o

good call.. and any luck no students either :thumbsup:

I thought it was great, cannot wait for District 10 lol. Although I get the impression it is a bit like marmite. There is a lot of, 'fill in the gaps' moments, which some people seem to get stressed about.

I thought it was excellent...

I enjoyed it that much, I saw it twice!! Great film and could be made into a series or at least a sequel.

so the 39,000 votes on imdb averaging 8.6/10 mean nothing ;-)

So you've seen the trailer and didn't think much of it....

but Roger Ebert and Peter Travers have both seen the film and given it favourable reviews....

hmm:geek:

I believe Ashley. Their reasoning for it being crap seems to be because the trailer is too good.

I would rather watch a good quality version
Plus Odeon has 25% discount vouchers at the moment so it's not so bad

i didnt like it really. The main character was really annoying.
the beginning was too slow. it got better in the second half.. but im not sure id recommend it.

Its an interesting subject though.. what would we do with stranded aliens if they had no superior technology (tripods) to fry us with..
