I was impressed by this movie.
What did you think?

I haven't seen this yet, but I've been kind of interested to see what Peter Jackson would do after LOTR. I was kind of disappointed to see The Hobbit fall through. Maybe this is something to employ the babysitter for the evening and take the missus to see.

Edited to give my head a shake after realizing Peter Jackson wasn't involved directly with the making of this movie. Goes to show how much I pay attention to the movie trailers on TV.
The fact that his name is attached to it in some ways still makes me want to see it.

A very clever movie.
It appropriates a documentary style and you find yourself using a different set of critical faculties than you would if it were a straight out sci-fi story. It's a strange effect that kind of 'disarms' you.

(I loved it)
