I'm going to a preview of this on Tuesday. My pal works for these film companies. He tells me the trailer is entirely misleading. But won't say why.

Excited to see it.

See my spoiler for the original story on the first page. Would love to know how closely it adheres.

Why would I do that?? I like going into a film knowing absolutely nothing about it. Theorising and speculating is for morons!!

I meant after you watch the movie, dime. I am extremely curious to see how far from the original concept the movie strays.

Is there a book or original source material? Definitely will read your post once I've seen it.

Yea, and sorry, my summary is on page 2 of this thread. It's one of very favorite sci-fi stories of all time, and the movie looks to be taking it in a different direction. Watch the movie, would love to read your spoiler-free review, and then have a look at my story summary -- would like to hear your thoughts as it relates to my spoiler post.

All he would say was that it was deep, moving and contemplative.

Hope that rhymes with the original story. But I will read the original story afterwards.

Did you see this? Thoughts on the film on its own merits? Thoughts on the film considering my spoiler of the short story?

Ok.

Just out of this. Couldn't even process immediately after. So walked home.

Caveat. Can't talk about any story element of the film at all without spoiling it all entirely.
Cast are all brilliant except for the green arrow or whoever he is mutant guy that stars in avengers? He was annoying and was meant to be but he didn't gel for me with a cast that were totally in tune apart from him.

Overall? I was so totally excited for the release of force awakens? I felt that level of excitement for this film, after having seen it
I've never seen anything done quite like this, but so well and in such a original final way.



After that i can't say anything else about it without ruining it. Other than I need to see it another 4/5 times to really absorb and figure out...everything.



It's so good. Make sure you see it in cinema. Makes all the difference For this one
So great :)

This is a brilliant film. I haven't read the story it's based on, but if it really is better than the film, then holy shit.

A couple of reviews I just read after watching the movie made a big deal of the political point of the movie, which is absolutely there, but is far from the only point it makes. Really hope the film's awesomeness doesn't go overlooked because of that.
