Star Trek ID was also bad. You all went to see that mess. This movie has been making bank overseas. I am so glad the majority of those movie goer's do not speak English. If they did, you stupid Americans would talk them out of seeing this movie.
Jun 17 - 11:31 AM
Go See this movie. I know you all think that if you don't, Will Smith will suddenly go broke, but you are wrong. This movie was as bad as TED and Ted was give reviews, Sop If you went to see TEDF. you owe yourself another punishment by checking this movie out. I did n't love it, but I walked out on TED.

his son is the worst actor i've ever seen,dads not far behind 'd' rating
Jun 13 - 11:56 PM
His Son! His Son...His son is mega rich. Get over it.

Question for the ages: After Earth or Last Airbender? Which causes you the most physical and mental pain to see? I guess, with Airbender we can have the Rifftrax commentary over it...that's something.
Jun 10 - 06:17 PM
this movie was lame it had terrible acting. A dumb plot and was Will Smiths vanity project to promote his son well sorry he won't be a star if he plays as badly as this
Jun 9 - 12:16 PM
I don't know why people are interested in this movie, and by the way i was laughing when i saw the trailer they don't mention M. Night name at all lolol

When the trailer for this flick is as BAD as it is and the audience gives it a rating above 50..........you know the audience is lacking oxygen. Surprisingly, the critics came close to being correct
Jun 6 - 01:03 PM
I don't believe the reviews on this film. the critics knew that this film was set to be one of summers blockbusters and they didn't want to see that happen so they deliberately gave it bad reviews as to make sure the audience wouldn't want to or would not go to see it. Do to not wanting to waste money on a stinker. I saw the trailer and it looked amazing. I want to see it and i'm not gonna let any jealous critic or prudish critic stop me
Jun 6 - 10:30 AM
You saw the trailer and thought it pretty good, huh?
You are a complete idiot.
Jun 6 - 01:05 PM
There's no conspiracy, critics and audiences think the movie sucks because it probably does. Get over it.
Jun 7 - 11:08 PM
They gave it bad reviews because they didn't want people seeing it. True. Because it probably sucks. You think if the critics actually enjoyed it that they would still tell audiences not to see it? No. You don't know how this works. You're allowed to like it by the way. No one is trying to stop you.

Jun 7 - 02:08 AM
If they were Jews then yes.
Jun 13 - 03:31 PM
There is two things wrong with what you said. 1) If someone wants to make a movie about slavery then they NEED black actors. 2) Why should American critics not give good reviews to samurai movies? Should Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon be panned because it's not American culture?
Jun 9 - 06:46 AM
I saw the movie yesterday and I liked it and the audience clapped at the end. Saw Fast and Furious last week, no one clapped at the end, but it was a good movie. Star Trek Into Darkness was applauded. I spend almost every weekend at the movies and After Earth was pretty good compared to some movies money is wasted on such as Hangover III. The movie was reintroducing Jaden Smith to the world since he has not been seen since Karate Kid. He has grown up quite a bit. The movie was about a young boy becoming a man. Will Smith was exploring his relationship with his son and how a father is suppose to be there, maybe this will inspire some fathers. Will Smith wrote a very good story. As much time as I spend at the movies, I know a crappy movie when I see one and After Earth is not one.
Jun 2 - 09:40 AM
They weren't clapping because they were happy it was over?
Jun 2 - 02:07 PM
No. They clapped at my showing too because they liked it. I bet you didn't even see it.
Jun 2 - 11:18 PM
No I haven't seen it. With that rating why would I waste my money?
Jun 3 - 03:49 AM
Jun 6 - 10:34 AM
you got that right
I think blacks are taking critical rejection of this flick as "racist". Blacks are not happy that this movie is being slammed...
Jun 3 - 06:36 AM
Jun 9 - 04:19 PM
Before this movie came out, I saw people slamming it. They hadn't seen it, and they were panning it. Not because it was a bad movie (they hadn't seen it!) but because they were angry that Will Smith created a movie that has his son in it.
There are people who are upset at the idea that Jaden Smith and/or Willow Smith are being raised in the "family business." Then again, there are people who think the Smith kids are spoiled and ill-mannered, which is amazing, because there isn't a single video clip or industry rumor that even suggests that these kids are anything other than polite, funny, and smart (both of them able to speak other languages).
So yes. There's something suspicious when you see a well-balanced, polite, funny, NICE - G E N U I N E L Y nice Hollywood family get constantly slammed. I can't help but think that if they were blonde-haired and blue-eyed, with the same qualities of being nice, charming, polite, etcetera, that more people would be praising them as the model of a how a Hollywood family should be.
Jun 10 - 09:14 AM
No matter how much Mommy & Daddy try, or how they use their connections, those two barely talented kids should be considering going to school to learn how to save the money they'll inherit 'cause they ain't gonna be making any of their own. Disgusting nepotism

Ayesha stop posting that stupid comment all over this thread.
Jun 10 - 04:31 AM
Is Leonard Maltin's review really "rotten"?
The representative excerpt/blurb commends Jaden's acting and makes a reference to the filming of "lush" locations.
I skimmed the full review, and Maltin ends with: "As a juvenile adventure yarn, After Earth is adequate but hardly inspired. It may satisfy undemanding moviegoers but it won?t add luster to anyone?s career."
It doesn't really read like a rotten review to me. I don't really care about the movie or the review, but I DO care about whether reviews like this are counted as "rotten" with respect to reviews of other films; it would totally change the perception, significance, and integrity of fresh/rotten scores, in my opinion.
Jun 1 - 01:36 AM
All of SHAMalan's movies suck, INCLUDING Sixth Sense and Signs; when will people learn? The ONLY movie he's made that I thought was alright was Unbreakable, and it has been a cliffdive from there. I have a boycott against this horrid director, and I wish everyone else did too, as he is taking perfectly good ideas such as this movie, and turning them into crap.
May 31 - 05:06 PM
Mike Randall, you crawl under a rock and do whatever it is you do with yourself. The only reason you didn't like 6th was because it was over your head.
Jun 1 - 10:33 AM
The sixth sense and signs were pretty good.
Well, I said it would be a big hit or a flop. Now it seems that it is both. Who would have guessed? It is a flop with the critics and a hit with moviegoers. I don?t believe I have seen such a gulf between the moviegoers and the critics since ?Star Wars.? So why did the Critics hammer it so hard? Well, they were expecting Shyamalan to bring his particular brand of direction to the movie and therefore pick it apart based on his brand of movie making and discovered that Shyamalan was nowhere to be seen. What we are seeing is an acquiescent Shyamalan who has lost his focus as a director. Part of that problem is that Shyamalan has always done his best when he is in sharp focus and doing more with the bare minimum. When given too much he falls apart and becomes disjointed and out of focus. In this movie M Night Shyamalan was not to be seen. What I find interesting is critics will all focus on one particular aspect of the movie, or find a particular fault as to why the movie doesn?t work. However, in this case their opinions seem to be wide and differing. More to the point there is very little in the way of critical evaluation. Reading the critics reviews you almost get the impression that they had all watch a different movie or simply didn?t care to go see it. Is it a great movie? No, not really. Is it a flop? No it isn?t a bad movie, it manages to keep its legs under it and carry it you through to the end, but it isn?t an over the top, in your face, all out edge of your seat experience.
May 31 - 04:32 PM
Lol. Yes um movie goers consider it a suck fest as well. It's going down faster than your mom
Jun 1 - 01:34 PM
Jun 2 - 11:19 PM
The audience rating is clearly not accurate. If you flip through all of the reviews from the beginning, nearly all are "not interested" or one or two stars. What gives? is it fixed?
May 31 - 11:55 AM
Tim, I think I got to go with the critics on this one. The 'audience' here is pretty immature and would go see a movie even with a ZERO rating. Not too much going on upstairs, I'm afraid..............
Jun 1 - 10:36 AM
Yeah, sure, if the audience doesn't agree with you then they must be stupid.
Jun 2 - 11:20 PM
Hey losers, the audience ratings were high on the opening day, its now 51% only and would even drop more. Shame on you for saying that the fucking critics are more reliable than the audience. The problem is with RT, had the RT staff counted all the audience vote in time, then it would never have been shown that this film had 83% audience rating.
Jun 3 - 10:29 PM
OK Critics are more reliable than users to certain people, like me. Also, it had a high rating because everyone who was anticipating it saw it first and people who didn't see it rated it 5 stars. Then people who didn't care for it as much saw it and it went down.
Jun 9 - 06:50 AM
Tim, My family liked After Earth. Many so called "reviewers" have not even seen the film. We saw a so called reviewer on a huge national publication website and he said he wrote about the movie and he negatively spoke about After Earth. To write or comment negatively about a movie that you did not view entirely and to call yourself a reviewer is, to me, fraud.

Jun 2 - 05:17 PM
An 82% for audience? I'm surprised at that, but the tomatometer grade I expected at least a 30.
May 31 - 10:51 AM
i seriously thought it would be at least 50. Guess off the mark by quite a bit. People have completely turned on him and for good reason
May 31 - 10:49 AM
SHAMalan is the worst director in Hollywood history. All his big movies suck, including Sixth Sense. I give him some kudos for Unbreakable, though.
May 31 - 05:02 PM
People haven't turned on him. His movies are shit, the writing is shit and you thinking this movie should be 50 is hilarious. How is it being married to a sibling?
Jun 1 - 01:36 PM
So, is the 83% audience rating:
A. Scientologists giving it 5 stars regardless of whether they saw it or not.
B. A product of a particularly low-brow, easy-to-entertain overall group of attenders.
C. Genuine critical dissonance that would still exist if you made 1,000 random people watch and rate the movie.
May 31 - 07:01 AM
everthing gets a 80% rating. People just hit the 5 star. they really never saw it and are fucking with the rating system
May 31 - 09:49 AM
It will go down.
May 31 - 10:11 AM
In a billion dollar industry, with complete control over the tomatometer, Rotten Tomatoes, which is owned by Warner Brothers, realizes that it can't fudge the critics responses, but the audience responses can be altered, since they will never meet each other or have a voice in any way accept here in these posts, which half of a half of a percent of people will ever read. It's more important to get the money than be honest. A low audience rating could potentially equal a hundred million dollars or more in losses.
May 31 - 10:30 AM
HAHA! It's at 61%, you fucking conspiracy theorist motherfuckers.
May 31 - 06:35 PM
rubbish 13% rt. bullshit hollywood
May 31 - 06:29 AM
In interviews Will Smith has always come across to me as an insufferable bore who totally believes he is wonderful. Now he has extended that belief to his son and from what I have read of reviews, may have ruined any chance Jaden may have had to be a successful actor.
But the movie will probably rake in millions. There is always an audience for junk.
May 31 - 05:36 AM
it wont make any profit in its theatre run. who is going to pay $12 to see it
May 31 - 06:30 AM
The audience for junk will line up to get in.
May 31 - 06:21 PM
Hit the nail on the head!
Jun 1 - 10:38 AM
I'm convinced Shyamalan has a deal with the mob, I don't know who else would fund his movies.
May 31 - 03:51 AM
haha, *likes your comment*. I hate Shyamalan more than ANY director
May 31 - 05:04 PM
10% and dropping for this shit bomb cash grab paycheck flick for mandingo and mandingo jr.
May 30 - 07:50 PM
I love how conspiracies theories always abound on these message boards when a movie gets bad reviews. No one is "out to get" Shyamalan. His movies over the past decade have been HORRIBLE!
May 30 - 06:41 PM
Ouch! 13%? I didn't think it would be worse than Oblivion.
May 30 - 06:04 PM
It's an M Night Shyamalan movie starring Jaden Smith, and you're surprised it's horrible???
May 30 - 06:26 PM
oblivion is a godsend compared to this shit-fest

You could have said that 10 years ago, yet....
May 30 - 05:18 PM
10 years ago Shyamalan had directed three big-budget films. Here are their combined numbers:
1.3 billion gross.
187 million budget.
76% average RT score.
5 years ago, yep. 10 years ago, he had a very good and well-deserved reputation.
May 31 - 06:46 AM
This really could be it for him if the movie tanks which i suspect it will. He will probably have to go the independent route at this point to try and re-establish himself
May 31 - 10:47 AM
Jun 1 - 01:38 PM
Wow. I'll wait til it comes on regular TV to watch this lol.
May 30 - 02:30 PM

Oh wait, slither might work in this context.
May 31 - 05:29 AM
LMFAO this film is getting crucified. Nepotism + weak CGI + M Night = FAILURE
May 30 - 01:22 PM
Haha, well said. This movie looks painful. M Night is a joke now...literally. If you're in a theater and a preview starts with "from the mind of M Night Shyamalan," people in the audience will literally laugh out loud at the fact he's still making movies...

May 30 - 02:35 PM
May 31 - 06:32 AM
Considering Will Smith's coaching brought this kid to the level of just "cant act", imagine what he was beforehand. Nepotism is defined as "giving favors to relatives regardless of talent or merit". Between this smith kid, ella fanning, ashley simpson and all the other talentless family members being ushered into entertainment stealing jobs from true talent, I wouldn't pay one red cent towards this movie. But maybe theres enough stupid people out there to make this POS a profit.
May 30 - 09:15 AM
thats right. theres lots of people that will fall for the marketing and pay for this POS
May 30 - 03:29 PM
I thought he was all right in Karate Kid.
May 31 - 07:02 AM
I was wrong. Very, very wrong. I can't help but think that the critics have already written this movie off before they even saw it, even if the movie isn't that bad, or maybe the movie simply doesn't work. Either way, my prediction was way off and it looks like Shyamalan delivered yet another dud.
May 30 - 09:12 AM
Ouch, it's at 13%... YEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!
May 30 - 08:37 AM
20% All Critics. "Despite solid acting from father and son Will and Jaden Smith, ''After Earth'' fails to captivate because of generic production and an implausible script.
May 30 - 07:26 AM
lol, Jaden Smith did not offer solid acting
May 30 - 04:28 PM
the sad part is the reviewers clearly have it in for Shyamalan, most agree that it is passable entertainment and that it is not a mess, which means it is probably a lot better than that, this is one I am going to have to see for myself

Dang now it's moved... it's been jumping around a bit, doesn't look like it will get over 20%. Terrible reviews lol but it's Shyamalan so that explains that.
May 30 - 05:42 PM
The reviews are coming in. So far, they are all rotten.
May 29 - 11:41 PM
The reviews so far don't hate it, but don't like it. lol Maybe 40%
May 30 - 12:08 AM
The reviews are coming it. So far, they are all rotten.
May 29 - 11:40 PM
It will be in the 20s if it's lucky. Between M Night and Jaden Smith, people can smell this stinker miles away.
Can't believe Will Smith turned down Django Unchained to try and buy his son a movie career. Talk about a poor investment.
May 29 - 11:34 PM
even if it bounces, its pathetic average score of 3.8, proves it is toxic.
May 30 - 03:30 PM
0-100%....i guarantee it.
May 29 - 11:10 PM
I agree with you. ;)
May 30 - 02:45 AM
somewhere in the 20's
May 29 - 10:41 PM
28%. M. Night still has his morbidly attached followers.
May 29 - 10:39 PM
its gonna get between 50-60%. personally if anything its only gonna be visually good and will and his son are gonna be a good onscreen duo.

I'm betting around 10% having seen a few reviews. " Unlikable characters, thinly script, and mediocre CGI dig the interesting premise into the ground"
May 29 - 10:06 PM
May 29 - 09:55 PM
My guess is 34%. "Will Smith is wasted and his son isn't good enough for the lead, and M. Night sucks as usual"
May 29 - 09:50 PM
The reviews ARE out there
And yep, it sucks
I hope they rip will smith and his son a new Ass$$%$# he deserves it since he turned down DJANGO unchained to star in this crap,i bet only for his son promotion,visuals look like there from early 2007.
May 29 - 09:20 PM
I'm kind of glad things turned out the way they did. I like Jamie Fox. Though, it would have been awesome to have Michael Jai White play Django.

May 29 - 09:53 PM
IGN gave it a 6.7 and they give crap movies even a 6,so this movie should be doomed to high 20s or low 30s
May 29 - 09:18 PM
Not having any early previews does not usually bode well
May 29 - 09:09 PM
I was actually feeling pretty optimistic about this before I read all the comments. I was estimating about a 65-73%.
May 29 - 08:45 PM
May 29 - 07:58 PM
First ever negative score. -27. Comparing it to feces would be a disservice to shit.

This can't be worse than Avatar the last air bender.
May 30 - 12:09 AM
Ha! No way in heaven its worse than that piece of crap! I will never forgive Shamalamadingdong for what he did to my favorite childhood cartoon.... I'm betting 20-30 percent. I don't think it will be the actor's faults, just the director's.
May 30 - 02:49 AM
High 40s: "A strong performance from Will Smith is not enough to elevate After Earth beyond it's weak script and muddled direction from Shyamalan"

3% "Shyamalan has sunk to new lows, even by the standards of his other recent efforts." Was actually sort of hoping for a return to form but the fact that there are no reviews two days from opening does not bode well. I haven't actually seen one of his films since Signs though if The Village was playing on TV I might give it a look. And I did enjoy "Devil" which he wrote but didn't direct so perhaps he's competent as a writer but lost his mojo as a director.
May 29 - 04:52 PM
I think the main criticism the movie will receive will be jaden's acting. His acting looks terrible, they should have gotten someone a little more experienced or someone who doesn't show one expression all the time..
May 29 - 04:47 PM
i dug up two reviews in Tampa -- one gave it a 1.5 out of 4, the other an "average" rating. Gotta say, with it being Wednesday eve and a moratorium nationally on the review.... welllll... that says a lot, especially because the studio would be able to offset Shyamalan's involvement if they had a stack of great reviews in hand...
OMG not even a REVIEW yet?! THIS MUST STINK! Damn! LOL
May 29 - 03:16 PM
agreed, come out friday and no reviews. this will be 28% my guess.
May 29 - 04:12 PM
if that lol
May 29 - 09:47 PM
I predict a 42%
May 29 - 02:59 PM
May 29 - 02:45 PM
No reviews 2 days before the release + M. Night Shymalan = a very bad movie.
May 29 - 02:40 PM
No reviews. Out in a few days. Not a good sign...
May 29 - 02:01 PM
May 29 - 01:44 PM
I will say 60%
May 29 - 01:32 PM
I cant believe that even now there are no reviews for this movie yet, I hope it is because the studio knows that most people have thier minds made up as it is and are not worried about the quality of their product
May 29 - 12:56 PM
The hollywood premiere is probably tonight. So you might see reviews showing up hopefully late night tonight.
May 29 - 01:45 PM
"It's inarguably an improvement over Shyamalan's previous four films, but despite passable performances and tolerable action and effects (and no twist ending, much to our surprise), After Earth is blandly and thinly written, has an uninteresting story, and fails to live up to Will Smith's good films and M. Night's good films."
May 29 - 12:11 PM
Yeah...I doubt it.
May 29 - 04:25 PM
It'll get better reviews than most M. Night movies because of Will Smith's consistently good acting and the combined sexiness of Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo and Isabelle Fuhrman, but it's still an M. Night movie so it will get panned.
May 29 - 11:22 AM
It will be a miracle if the movie breaks the 10% barrier.
May 29 - 11:18 AM
I'm a little surprised that there is not a single review in yet,a nd the movie comes out in two days.
May 29 - 08:36 AM
That´s why this is going to suck very hard
May 29 - 10:08 AM
With The Last Airbender, I can't say I am not shocked. M. Night has taken a major nose dive into Ed Wood territory after Signs.
May 29 - 11:17 AM
I've seen it. Boy, does it stink. There's no twist ending. The effects are generally quite good. That's about it. 30%. Some people like everything.
May 29 - 08:14 AM
22%. The twist is that the film is actually a 23-minute pilot for a new Matthew Perry sitcom.
May 29 - 07:18 AM
25% and below. At its best is 50%
May 29 - 06:38 AM
"Although much better than his previous films, such as The Last Airbender and The Happening, and despite a solid performance by Will Smith, M.

500% because niggers--I MEAN--black people--I MEAN--individuals originating from Africa.
May 29 - 03:14 AM
0%. Just Because is a M Night movie
May 29 - 12:46 AM
Will Smith will probably keep it out of the terrible range so im guessing 50-70. The cgi looks really weak and low budget from what ive seen.
May 28 - 11:58 PM
May 28 - 10:42 PM
Worst case scenario: 25%. Best case scenario 75%. Critics will probably hate some of the writing and direction but praise the acting and the tone of the movie.
May 28 - 08:03 PM
Best prediction so far. I expect Will Smith to fare well but his sn shows no emotion and looks extremely clueless the whole time.
May 29 - 05:31 AM
Worst case scenario: 6% Best case scenario: 45%
Does anybody think that the lack of any reviews so soon before the movie's release is a BAD sign? I mean, don't movie producers usually keep their movies from advance screenings if they think its going to bomb, in order to limit the bad buzz?
May 28 - 06:18 PM
May 28 - 07:31 PM
because of the samalamamaa guy???
May 28 - 07:40 PM
No screenings for reviewers = movie is crap. After Earth is going to suck so hard that Hoover is going to introduce a new Shyamalan vacuum and put Dyson out of business.
May 28 - 10:39 PM
Its generally a sign the studio has little to no faith in the movie. Most movies are received poorly by critics when this tactic is taken
May 28 - 11:53 PM
Inception had a critical embargo on it too, and so is the upcoming Now You See Me.
May 29 - 03:06 AM
Yeah, but Nolan has a solid track record, Shyamalan not so much.
May 29 - 11:59 AM
Thats why i said generally. Its not always the case but most times it is. You can generally tell though based on who is involved on a project.
May 29 - 11:15 PM
I want it to be good, but I think it will be 37%
May 28 - 05:45 PM
May 28 - 07:41 PM
I think this thing can potentially hit 60% fresh, only because action movies are favored by critics on this site, and becsuse the movie has an obligatory father-son message. From what I've seen, though, it deserves 1%

I have the feeling that the kid may have acting talent, but if the movie it's gonna rely just on "him and his father playing the CGI", it may not be a great thing to watch. Yeah, seems to be some drama aside about the relationship father and son, in fact, they are going to play with the possibility of Will dead on Earth to save his son. I think they might find some other people living on earth and there maybe it's something to keep up the plot.
I'm giving 32-40%. Becuase the kid is good, Will too, but the plot isn't. And about the director... I'm not really a fan of his, but I've seen The Village, I've enjoyed it, but with the Happening having a great cast, and Avatar with a great story, he somehow ruined both of them.

I don't think it will be as low as everybody say . Why do you guys want it to get a 0%. You guys love seeing people fail. I think it will get a fresh tomato .m night isn't bad. He started off with three great films then he went down hill but I still think he's a great director and screenwriter. Writing screenplays is hard because we have to re write all the time. Just like novels some novels that S. King came out with wasnt good. I'm guessing it will get a 55-65 %. It's a big year for sc Fi films. Come on why do you guys want this film to get a 0%.
May 27 - 12:00 PM
Why do you insist on barraging the boards with your senseless ramblings?
May 29 - 02:44 PM
Ps. where did you see anyone say they want it to get a zero?
May 27 - 09:38 AM
0% because of all the nigs in it.
May 26 - 09:01 PM
Tommy is just mad because Carlos won't give him any play. Loser.
May 27 - 12:11 PM
I would not exactly call it predicting, more like guessing. I hope it scores well and makes 60-70 mil for the weekend. JM2C.
May 26 - 04:30 PM
60-70% It will be better than Oblivion, but not by much.
May 26 - 01:40 PM
Im going to change and go with 16 to 27%%
May 26 - 11:56 AM
Just seen the interview with Graham Norton and now the interview with Alex Zane. This movie is building momentum now. Wait for the first reviews. I think they will be very, very good. I predict 88% positive and US domestic total of $200m and rest of the world total of $250, making a total of $450m at least.
May 25 - 04:31 PM
I think the world will end if this movie ends up at either 88% or 200 million domestically. It would have to far, far better than any of the tracking numbers are currently showing for that to happen.
That was supposed to be "it would have to do far, far better..."
I really think Will Smith knows a good script when he sees one. 60%.

"After Earth has good visuals, but is bogged down by a drab Will Smith performance and a lack of creative direction. M. Night Shyamalan continues his losing streak."
May 24 - 09:28 PM
15%. If was any good they'd build an ad campaign around the review buzz. This is gonna be another Shyamalan stink bomb.
May 24 - 08:10 PM
12%," Final nail in the coffin"
May 24 - 01:01 PM
"Although it's admittedly better than some of his more recent work, Shyamalan's After Earth is overly repetitive and familiar, and a wooden lead performance from Jaden Smith just makes things worse"
May 24 - 09:49 AM
"Shyamalan has suceeded in making his best movie since Signs: After Earth is thrilling and well-acted, despite being overly repetitive and familiar
May 24 - 09:47 AM
Judging by the previews, I don't think Will's son has inherited any of his dad's acting talent or charisma. Guess we'll see.

I want to like this movie but the trailers look so dumb. 45%
May 22 - 06:45 PM
30%. the guy directed the happening. tells u all u need to know
May 22 - 12:49 PM
Travis--Bruce Willis pulled off "Sixth Sense" Are you saying that Will Smith is not up to the same challenge? M Night has a unusual vision when it comes to movie making, now lets just how versatile Smith really is. One thing for sure, there will be no middle ground "After Earth" will be great or it will tank. There will be no middle ground. It is going to depend on the amount of energy everyone brings to the effort.
May 21 - 07:20 PM
M Night is not your average director so I don?t expect to see the average movie. I expect a difference, which is why I am attracted to M Night. He doesn?t do what is expected and for a number of meat and potatoes moviegoers who expect the script to go their way it isn?t always a good match up. One thing for sure M Night always swings for the fences and he does it with an unusual style. This is either going to be epic or it is going to tank, I doubt there is going to be any room for the middle ground.
May 21 - 07:02 PM
May 24 - 12:31 PM
It's gonna get 40-50%. Just average. It will be like Tron:Legacy. No character development, decent plot, terrible direction, great cinematography.
May 21 - 01:34 PM
I'm saying 68%. Not terrible, but good for MNS
May 21 - 08:20 AM
I'm going to say 60%-70%, but I'm hoping for anything in the 80 percentile. After The Happening and Avatar, M. Night needs it desperately.
May 21 - 06:02 AM
Avatar? That was James Cameron not M. Night and it was a great film
May 21 - 04:31 PM
Avatard was very.... very... bad. It was the most boring cgi movie I ever watched.
May 21 - 06:28 PM
M. Night did "Avatar the last air bender" not a very good movie. However, I was also disappointed in James Cameron's "Avatar" So much potential wasted on a really poor plot.
May 21 - 07:06 PM
Avatar: The Last Airbender, dude.
May 25 - 06:28 PM
both movies sucked. Camereon is overrated as is M.NightShamalamdingdong
May 30 - 07:53 PM
It was awesome in IMAX 3D, but watching it on regular tv it does drag on at parts but I still think it was a great movie overall.
May 21 - 08:23 PM
They are talking about the last airbender, M Night did NOT direct Avatar, he isn't that good of a director
May 23 - 09:06 PM
But Avatar wasn't that good a movie either.
May 28 - 07:54 AM
May 21 - 05:51 AM
May 20 - 11:33 PM
I don't know, this may actually be a good movie. I would say 70s.
May 20 - 07:40 PM
May 20 - 07:00 PM
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say 70-80%. I think this is M.Night's comeback film. He's an intelligent director, he's had big misses but I think he's learned from his mistakes and with Will Smith and his son taking the reigns in this one it's hard for it to be an utter failure. Will Smith usually appears in above average movies. The only thing I'm a little concerned about is the CGI, I hope they polished it up because from the trailer it looked kind of like how I Am Legend's CGI was, which was dissappointing and ironically also starred Will Smith.
May 20 - 06:20 PM
May 20 - 06:12 PM
58%: A step up from M Night Shyamalan's latest films, After Earth is too cliched and too mundane to match its creative visuals.
May 20 - 01:50 PM
I'm thinking within the 55-65% range.
May 20 - 01:47 PM
May 20 - 01:13 PM
May 20 - 12:38 PM
i'm going to go out on a limb and predict 70% Shyamalan is a great director when he wants to be and Will Smith generall delivers a fairly consistent product
May 20 - 11:59 AM
May 20 - 11:16 AM
May 20 - 06:40 AM
This is an odd thread. To guess how everyone is going to think about something no one has seen.
May 20 - 06:17 AM
I'm gonna say 36%.
May 20 - 06:39 AM
But that's the point of predicting, right?
That is the point.
