I'd totally watch a Dark Skies movie, if it were only this Dark Skies:

The twist in Dark Skies is that the big scaries aren't actually Alien Ghosts, they're Nanite Vampires.

Even bloody disgusting said Dark Skies sucked and they usually over-inflate the hell out of horror movie scores.

A Good Day to Die at the Box Office.

That's a damn shame. I found Dark Skies to be an engrossing, well-acted thriller with an admittedly weak ending.

wasn't there a TV show just last year called Dark Skies?  Maybe I'll call my next movie "Star Wars,' idiots.

I went to my local horror movie festival and caught some fantastic foreign shorts and "John Dies at the End". It was a good weekend of horror movies for me. Damn shame about the wide release movies that taint the horror genre like this.

Snitch was decent, but turned a little ridiculous at the end. Also, The Rock was about the worst casting choice they could have made. He's fine in action and comedy roles, but he was laughably bad in this dramatic role.

John Dies at the End is one of the most farked up movies I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of messed-up stuff.

There wasn't a single millisecond of the previews for Identity thief that even looked remotely funny. I suppose the film could be better than the trailers, but I'm guessing this is the Paul Blart crowd proving once again that they'll pay for derp and like it.

But then again, everything else this weekend looked like ass, too.

This.  Ending was absurd and unsatisfying, but the rest was pretty taut.

It was okay.  The JK Simmons scene blew everything else away.  Hell of a little performance he gave there.

Dark Skies should of had a different name and held the alien cards closer to their chest. People want ghosts, not creepy ET's.

Review after review that I read said he's the only thing worth seeing in the movie. Meh, YMMV
