W. T. Fark: [i39.tinypic.com image 550x366]Approves
Secret Agent X23: Good stuff (the review, that is). I only wish Roger Ebert could be around to review this one.
propasaurus: W. T. Fark: [i39.tinypic.com image 550x366]ApprovesThat's fitting, since I've read other reviews of After Earth that say it's thinly veiled Scientology propaganda.
Confabulat: Secret Agent X23: Good stuff (the review, that is). I only wish Roger Ebert could be around to review this one.Me too. There have been a ton of great reviews of this movie though. M. Night movies are like Christmas for those of us who love to read savage reviews.
Hoban Washburne: "Everything on this planet has evolved to kill humans," he warns. Which is a stupid evolutionary strategy, with no humans around.Seriously, this was the point when I first saw the trailer where I went from "maaaaybe this could be cool" to "oh for fark's sake."

Night movies are like Christmas for those of us who love to read savage reviews.Are you saying there's a ton of great positive reviews, or a ton of great negative reviews? I'm assuming negative because it's pullin 12% (which is actually lower than the last fark greenlight about the movie).
Confabulat: Great negative reviews. It's no fun reading a positive review. Not that I've seen much in that way regarding this flick.
Apos: Armond White will deem it Oscar-worthy.
gopher321: That's a shame; I was hoping that if this film did well, M. Night would get the greenlight for Unbreakable 2. Don't see it happening now.
dletter: Interesting, since to me at least, I thought that was clearly his best film.
Confabulat: Apos: Armond White will deem it Oscar-worthy.He's already reviewed it and even HE slags M. Night.Cypher's unreachable paternal tenderness (from "cipher" the hip-hop term for community) may strongly affect moviegoers who welcome paternal scolding but it's by no means sure-fire, especially given M. Night Shyamalan's lethargic, non-visionary direction of Kitai's sub-Apocalyptoobstacle course. Smith fans who are unaware of how adolescent life lessons were taught in rich, earth-bound movies likeSounder, The Yearling, National Velvet, The Human Comedy may yet respond enthusiastically toAfter Earth-less as entertainment than as a matter of need.
Sgt Otter: FTA: Smith senior plays Gen. Cypher Raige, the stoic military leader of an off-planet Earthling colony. I am not making this up, that is seriously his name.That sounds like the villain in a really, really cheesy Shadowrun module.
hubiestubert: Steven Barnes wrote a review this morning, and in the framework of a Young Adult movie, he thought it was fine. Not great, but viewed as YA fiction as opposed to action film, he thought it did OK. For grown people, maybe not so great, and there were moments he groaned a bit, but viewed with his son, it was a good time.
Son of Thunder: Where's Harvey Plinkett when we need him?
Apos: the kind of film that would make Ed Wood excuse himself and skulk to the exit.[www.tshizzle.com image 350x210]/Hilariously brutal review.//Armond White will deem it Oscar-worthy.///Third slashie. Just because.
Torgo_of_Manos: "...for reasons I can't explain because I am not fluent in stupid."I am going to use that phrase as much as possible in the coming weeks.
orclover: So M. Nights a Scientologist now?
