Just watched After Earth. Eh......it was ok. Not as bad as what rotten tomatoes or other reviews made it out to be IMO but also not a great movie. Seen it now and probably won't see it again. I really think it suffered cause the boy just is not as good an actor as he and his family think he is. Storyline is an interesting one and I think it could have been a much better movie for sure but in the end it was just ok.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Went to see Gravity in IMAX 3D last night. Saw the trailer a few weeks ago and it looked dreadful (whoever made that trailer needs shooting). Given that Rotten tomatoes reviews were 97/90%, and comments I heard from others that had seen it, I thought I'd give it a shot.

Was great. One of the few movies it's actually worth going to the movie theater for. (I hardly ever go, as my home theater is generally a much better experience (and way cheaper, and much better cocktail selection)

Thanks for posting this Mark - I was thinking it might not be worth seeing in the theater as well...

I think the IMAX experience really adds something, as it's mostly "shot" in space (which I think is relatively large). The 3D was pretty good too. (generally not a fan)

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I also saw Gravity last night and I agree with Mark that it's worth seeing in the theaters on the largest screen available.

The movie is absolutely stunning and with a running time of 90 minutes I never felt that it was dragging. In fact I would go so far as to say this is the closest to cinematic perfection I have seen in a very long time.

On the audio side (I saw it in Atmos) the surrounds were utilized almost constantly but I don't think this will be an LFE monster when released on BR.

Wow - 90 minutes? Normally, I only see that length with animated movies and comedies.

You guys are making it hard not to head to the theater. We've been eyeing Gravity for awhile. I personally thought the trailer did it's job because after seeing the trailer most people around me were saying "I want to see that!" I'm sure it's beautiful on the IMAX screen.
