Well saw the movie, thought it to be a decent movie, but was not too thrilled by all the hype. Figured I give an quick honest review of this “so-called” blockbuster.
ET On Weird Crack (Repurposed):
Well, if you ever saw E.T. who was made by the same director, you would notice the story was really similar. Bunch of young kids, have a rough family life… and then something weird happens in their town.
Literally it’s the same story as E.T.
I won’t put any spoilers in here, but it is a bit gruesome and has some cool parts. But I believe the director is setting the bait on your curiosity of what the hell is the monster.
I am not the only one who gave this movie a so-so review. Check out AskMen.com Review below:
Unfortunately, Abrams’ attempt at classic Spielbergian fun is a bit wanting. It’s not that the man can’t build suspense and awe. The train-wreck sequence is eye-opening, and we’re frequently on edge when something is rumbling in the bushes. But all the hush — the obstructed glimpses, the unanswered questions — around the creature in the dark is a set-up for disappointment, especially at a time when we’ve seen all this before. It’s like slowly tearing away at a neatly wrapped gift just to find out you already have what’s inside. And if you gave that gift a little shake, you would have already known that. It’s not like audiences didn’t know that the predator in Jaws was a shark, but that shark still managed to surprise you. This CGI-monstrosity on the other hand leaves you indifferent. Still, these are small setbacks for a movie that looks back at the classics and moves way ahead of most summer fare.
In my honest opinion, a good rental flick. I have no problem sitting in the theater chowing down pop corn and twizzlers. But this was not that fulfilling.
Hopefully… Green Lantern This Friday will be banging and better.
