Has anyone seen it? Thoughts?
I saw it last weekend. I don't want to post spoilers, but I'm not even sure what would be considered a spoiler. So don't read on if you can't wait to see it and know nothing about it.
I kept hearing how great this movie was, it had a mid-90's on the tomato meter, I heard references to Hitchcock and some of the classic ghost story kind of things.
I had no idea it would be...well, what it was. If I had known that it was such a deconstruction of the genre, a satire, I probably would have loved it. But I went in expecting it to be like I felt after The Blair Witch Project or The Others or Alien or 28 Days Later. This wasn't that at all...
I know the movie was made years ago, but I also think the timing REALLY sucked as it has some serious similarities to the Hunger Games (the giant dome, controlled elsewhere).
Besides, I kept waiting for Bradley Whitford to say he was going to find President Bartlett.
I've only seen the trailers, so I was having some flashbacks to 'Lost' for a bit. It still looks interesting, and Joss Whedon comes up with some interesting story lines.
Also, that Hemsworth guy is in it, and he is man-pretty.
I love Hulu, if only for the amount of movie trailers you can watch!
