Wow. What an immersive experience. I watched it in (fake) IMAX 3D and thought it was worth the price. I could only imagine how much cooler it would be in full sized IMAX. The commercials and stuff only show you 1/3 of the full movie. At Comic Con, Director Alfonso Cuarón said the studio added explosive sound effects to the commercials and trailers to try to sell the movie, but the final movie was a whole lot more silent and isolated. Go watch this with as little info as possible. The 3D was worth it because of all the debris flying at you makes you feel like you are actually there. There were also a few scenes from Sandra Bullock's point of view. Cuarón's "single take" camera is as amazing as in Children of Men.
How is a CG camera amazing? You can insert whatever you want in there with no effort.

I saw it in 3D and it was amazing. I can't stress enough how it needs to be seen in 3D or IMAX. It's not that the movie doesn't hold up on its own, but it's so immersive in 3D.

Originally posted by OliverI thought Children of Men was pretty bad, personally.
how dare you! excellent movie. Still waiting to see this movie.
What people think of movies is purely subjective. There's a very long list of movies that I loved that are considered crappy (like the Fantastic Four movies, taht's a running joke here at times, it seems) and vice versa (I thought Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was crap) but meh.
Sigh ... And I'm still trying to figure out why Sarah let John time-travel by himself ... I mean, she no longer trusts Derek and Cameron around her son, but seems perfectly fine with letting him follow a liquid-metal Terminator to lord-knows-when.
