OK maybe I a bit off base here, but a group of us went to see it in the theater. I was kinda prepared for a bad move, I usually hate prequels, however I did a full 180 about 1/2 way into the movie. I went from thinking it would suck, to it was good, right up to WOW. I honestly think it was one of the best movies yet.
Only movie I saw recently that I was hoping to be great but sucked was the new Fast and the Furious movie. On top of being a little bit Science Junkie, I am a huge car nut. If a movie has fast cars in it, I'll probably go and see it. Just wish they would bring back some of the realism to it.
