I loved it, my wife thought it was just "good."

9/10
Author: Anthony_Boyd from CA, USA
1 October 2005

As a thirty-something father who remembers seeing the original Star Wars with my father back when I was a kid, and as a fan of Farscape and Galactica (but not Trek), my reaction to this movie was beyond positive. The movie is breathtakingly good! And Joss Whedon has some big rocks. He's willing to rip apart his own creation if it'll make a great movie. And I think that is seriously great. I'll see the movie five more times and not be satiated.

My wife's reaction to the movie, as a thirty-something mom who loved Signs and Lord of the Rings, but couldn't care less about sci-fi in general, was something like this: "yeah, it was good. A little too violent. I don't imagine I'd ever see it again, but I'm glad I got to see it once." I suspect her more level reaction is the reaction most non-geeks will have.

So with her rating of 8, and my rating of a perfect 10, we average a 9.
