If you have read the books, don't watch this movie. If you've watched
the movie, try your best to forget that you did, and go read the books
The novel is a wonderful work of art. That this film totally demolishes. There are actually 4 books, I'm working on reading the last book now. This movie, to put it blunt, Christopher Paolini needs to get some agents like Lucas Arts has, to keep people from bashing his story.
That is sound advice people.
On the upside, the movie does reveal enough about the story to motivate you to read the books. The only real horrible part of the movie I guess is John Malkovich. Having his image stuck in you mind while trying to read the novels is hideous.

I'll maintain a benefit of the doubt view here. Because someone might
actually like, what I would say is a "B,C, or possibly even a Z Rated"
The first thing I sort of did not like, was how fast the readable frames were flashing, you could not read them.
I only gave it a look because I sort of like Kevin Sorbo as an actor. Which he does not even, appear in the film until about 34 minutes into it.
I did manage to see a couple of interesting special effects. And the story line was alright, but there was a lot of frame splicing, and screen switching, it almost sort of makes you feel dizzy.
I personally could not get into it. But someone else might enjoy it. I'd recommend googling "B, C, Z rated" films if you don't already know what this means. To get an idea if this is something you might be interested in.
The last thing, I guess I could through in, is that it is a Vampire Based story line. So, if you like Vampire story's you might like it. But, It did appear to me to be very low budget. So, keep that in mind.
It seems that a lot of people love to either write negative reviews, or
read them one? They must be in high demand or something? My opinion is,
if you see a negative review about this movie...just ignore it.
It is VERY RARE that you get any type of viable/watchable Sci-Fi in any form these days. Most Sci-Fi is very cheaply made, with poorly written story lines, and second rate actors cast in them. And, little to no descent looking effects.
Real Steel: Is not a "Cheap" made movie. The actors cast in the movie are "GOOD", and the story line is very family oriented. It can appeal to both a younger, and older crowd.
The CGI effects are good, I like the close up views on the Robots.
I would recommend that if you like Sci-Fi, you should give this a view. If you remotely enjoyed any of the vast "Marvel" movies that have been spewing out of Hollywood as of late? I don't see any reason why you would not like this movie.
This movie is just as good as any Super Hero movie that has came out...With a sort of "Rocky" touch to it.
And, you can let your kids watch it. Which is the least you can say for a lot of movies coming out these days.
First off it is safe to say the show is obviously about the theory of
Ancient Aliens...Hence the name.
Having said that, as with any theory one is challenged with making up their own mind when it comes to the belief or non-belief in said theory.
The show presents a lot of topics to research, and give some thought too.
I personally enjoyed the show, because it is hard for me to accept the fact that we think we know everything there is to know about our existence. Which, we have, throughout our own history dis-proved our own beliefs countless times, although very reluctantly in most cases.
Example: We once thought the Earth was the center of the universe and that everything revolved around us. (we thought we were the "Pinnacle" of creation) Then it was discovered that the sun don't orbit us, we in fact orbit it. Then we discovered that we are not even in the center of our galaxy. We are in fact out on almost the outer reaches of one of its arms.
We still have people that think we are the "Pinnacle" of creation. Which is their right to believe as such I suppose.
However, within our brief existence it would be very naive at best to say that we have all the answers, and that we are all-knowing.
Clearly we are not.
The two most prominent religions in the world are Christianity & Muslim/Islam.
Each of these would most likely be inclined to not give faith or belief to such speculations, ideas, or topics. Which I guess is rightfully so. However, the Vatican now has an observatory.
And, even in the show it is stated that one's belief in other life in the universe does not negate one's belief in God.
Nonetheless, I find it very hard to believe we are the only intelligent life in the universe. Therefore, I enjoyed this show a great deal.
Fact is...no one can say for sure there were Ancient Aliens here on Earth at one time, or that they were not. There really is not enough evidence to prove or disprove the subject matter.
In the end, it gives some things to be considered and pondered. Which is the whole point of the show in the first place.
Be careful about "Debunking" something, or you might wind up looking as silly as the person did that thought the sun orbited us.
Be careful about jumping on the band wagon of some theory that can't be proved, or you might wind up looking as silly as the person that thought the world was flat.
Just keep an open mind. Who says you have to Confirm or Deny everything? Where is that law written? Can't people be allowed to watch the show, and form their own opinions? Why all the finger pointing? You know when you point your finger at someone you got three pointing back at yourself right?
