Thanks. Hopefully you should have a good time as long as you don't go in expecting something as great as District 9. I look forward to your review.

I can't personally but help see this as a miss opportunity to see a Greek epic onscreen. I could imagine the haves being the gods and the have not being humans. With a lone human making a deal with Hades for great power to overthrow Zeus as the king of Gods. Resulting disastrously in a war of Gods for the thrown. Though basic would love to see a film like that. Also, yet to see a blockbuster taking advantage of the rich Greek mythology.

That sounds awesome and should have been the Clash of the Titans remake we never had. Jason and the Argonauts would also be ripe for another telling. Perhaps the Hercules movies may be fun but won't hold my breath.

Surprise Blomkamp chose to stick with his "District 9" with his next film forgetting the witty and well handled commentary. Sadly Blomkamp could end like Richard Kelly. Blomkamp next film is also set in a futuristic slum. He's either afraid to try something wanting to repeat success or wants to make commentary on how awful slum life is. Hopefully he won't suffer the same fate as poor Kelly.

Indeed. You raise some good points. Perhaps growing up in apartheid-era South Africa has left deep scars that he's still working out. BTW where's your review? I would've thought you'd seen this by now being one of your most anticipated films.

Bad timing on both ends. The film came out in a time where I busted my kneecap, had to change banks since my old one was bought resulting in a prolonged process, and complete paper work to begin another semester in college. It didn't help me either at the time I was still working 11 plus hour shifts to my dislike. I'll likely catch it on DVD when it comes out.

Man that sucks. Hopefully things will improve and you can get back to enjoying life and having a bit of fun. All the best.
