One of the best endings I have ever witnessed. And if the ending of a movie is good then the middle or the beginning can't be too bad either. Partly it's the fact that for a good ending one needs a certain amount of suspense to be built and that is something which most producers seem to forget. This is also one of Brad Pitt's best roles but it's sort of average on Morgan Freeman's side - nevertheless that's more than you could ever get from your average Hollywood actor (especially now and even worse: in his mid 20s) I guess most people have seen this already? Right? Much like Fight Club I guess, in terms of popularity that is. The movies are perfectly different in every other aspect. Gwyneth Paltrow is also having an appearance in this movie. She is more or less just the wife who gets slaughtered at the end. This was kind of blunt and also: "SPOILER ALERT". Dante's Divine Comedy reference and the sins are merely giving a background to the story. The sins are important to the plot but not necessarily the reason why I love this movie. The main reason is that it is just really well done. This is what every thriller should strive towards. The shock of the first victims lets you prepare for the latter but the suspense doesn't let you move away from your chair until the very end.
Remember the times? Things were more Wesley Snipes and less Robert Pattinson. Good times. I don't think that there is a cooler movie/franchise about vampires. Even True Blood fades away in comparison. To be honest I do not wish to write about the movie's story. For people who see the awesome poster for the first time I suggest you take some time to watch the movie. And for the rest who are like "Oh, damn I do remember now! Blade was awesome. I'll totally watch it again" I suggest you should totally watch it again. I am being clear I think. But the movies did get worse over time as with most franchises. The IMDb rating for the one from 98' was 7.0 with over 120k ratings and it sank as low as 5.8 for Blade: Trinity. Oh and in Trinity Jessica Biel was totally hot despite the lame costumes. And Ryan Reynolds was ... just... not ... cool.

So if you just watched the trailer then you have already noticed two things.
So how is this spaceship's design not unfortunate? What does that look like to any normal human being who isn't "flashed" by the knock-off story. As I said Tom Cruise is not the problem. In fact given the story, the ship and Morgan Freeman's knock-off Morpheus, Tom Cruise is the only cool thing in the movie. And note that I have never said this about a movie before. This is not even in the same league as Will Smith's upcoming After Earth. Sadly they have put enough money in commercials to prevent it from becoming an actual failure to the general public and when I say general I do mean generic.

Guillermo del Torro strikes again. He's probably the only reason why I am psyched about this and oh the giant awesome robots who will become punching bags for the even MORE awesome and EVEN bigger aliens. The actors are "okay" but the CGI is "more than okay". There is nothing to the story and this portal in the ocean thing is OLD. But somehow I still feel like going the extra mile (to the cinema that is, I am kind of sure it's just a mile away... or maybe two?) Anyway. What was I talking about?
