    MI2 was bad, MI3 is lame. Both are boring, but I prefer bad movies to lame movies. This one looks like it was made for TV but at least MI2 looked like it could have been a John Woo movie (wait, it was??). The Cat in the Hat was bad and The Gray Man was lame, and both are 1 star movies, but I actually respect Cat in the Hat more because at least I could easily laugh at it…

    Phenomenal. More of a transcendental experience than a blockbuster movie, akin to 2001 though that may be objectively the better film even if I marginally prefer this. Best score ever, no understatement. I don't know how anyone could come up with such a creative and intelligent sci-fi epic that is actually true to science like this. Blows my mind and makes me cry. I had to go see this on the big screen after only seeing it on dvd two…

    Oh boy, I love pointless, overstylised pessimism! I nearly threw up! Do you ever want to tell a film to shut up sometimes? Cos this was one of them.
    Jared Leto looks like a Pixar animated version of Greg Heffley in this.
