Critic Review - Washington Post

Gets off to such an incoherent start that it takes almost the entire, interminable two-hour-plus running time to catch up.

Sooo, what you're saying is you didn't understand the story till it was fully told??? Unforgivable.

Ann, yes this movie will not be pleasing to those of us who are on the verge of Alzheimer. Better go get yourself checked.

I and my family found it to be hugely entertaining.

Do critics like any movies that regular people like?

Why do you even have a job?

ON the Washington Post site, all the readers reviews gave it 4 out or 5 stars! Mmm...

Besides, Ann Hornaday is just jealous because she looks like a freakin' alien anyway and didn't get a role in the movie.

Seriously, it's a good, entertaining movie.

It's also interesting to know a little history about the story before you go to see it.

You will realize then that this story is the probably the one that influence some of greatest science fiction and fantasy stories of our time.

Go do a search on the history of the story, then go see it in theaters (in 3D if you can).

You won't regret it...and stop relying on these critic reviews.

Be your own judge. Peace out!

"..incoherent start that it takes almost the entire, interminable two-hour-plus running time to catch up." Really? Really? This is based on dime-store fiction and yet you cannot keep up? Children, nearly a hundred years ago could "catch up". Maybe you should drink some warm milk and take a nap, the nurse will come change your daiper when it is time.

Two hours to catch up; now that is funny!

Probably got stuck in line at the concession stand and missed the start of the movie, huh??
I understood the movie perfectly fine... FROM START TO FINISH!!
Get your head of your husband/boyfriend's lap when you watch a movie, cause you suck big time!!
