Still one of the greatest IMAX movies and space documentaries, 29 December 2005

I saw this when I was a kid when it was still a fairly new IMAX movie at the IMAX theater at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. It's the best IMAX movie I've ever seen and I've been to a lot. I can still remember the first time I saw it, the scene where they use the emergency baskets made me and everyone else in the theater nearly jump out of our seats. It makes a great experience and a lot of the scenes gave me tingles (like the shuttle takeoff). I bought the DVD for my mom who is a science teacher. The DVD is a bit different experience probably because I'm no longer a kid and it's not in an IMAX theater. Despite this and the fact that it is a little dated now (but the ideas are not), it still makes for a great documentary.

Give it a chance, 8 November 2005

Wow, I finally saw it after hearing it tanked at the box office. I really liked it actually. They got a raw deal, and I think the 5/10 rating here is too low. It's only about 1hr 30min but it uses those very well. Sometimes it's good to watch a movie without all the tragedy mixed with the good, all the gray area like most movies today. There were great actions scenes, fight scenes, great special effects, some mysterious flashbacks, all woven to an intriguing story. I don't know anything of the comic book series so I can't comment on that except that expectations could have been higher for some people due to that. My expectations were quite low just from the little I'd heard of how it did with viewers. Chances are that if you haven't seen it yet then yours are low as well, you might find you like it. Give it a chance. It's an enjoyable movie, you should rent it.
