Think it's come time that if your gonna have 3D then make it in 3D not retro fit it afterwards as it has very, very seldomly worked out.  More

L: jonson L: Spaldron Mark Kermode just destroyed this film on 5live, it was epic. ote] I just posted that in the review thread. It was awesome. considering he was trying his damned hardest to be polite interviewing an irittable Andrew Stanton last week ote] Andrew Stanton was defensive,but I wouldnt say he was irritable. There was abit of sense in what Andrew Stanton was saying last week but it just got lost due to his wording and slightly bigoted attitude. Its  More

Being a ] fan of sci-fi, i'm really looking forward to this film! However, seeing the Disney logo attached to the name was not a good sign IMO. Just hope the film lives up to expectations!  More

L: impqueen I’m a big fan of the source and have been keeping a quiet (desperate) eye on this film since it was announced and I really hope it is as mental, fun and entertaining as the little bits of blurbs I’ve seen. MPIRE's own Kim Newman saying he was won over by the film's heart is a good sign in my book.  More

I don’t think it’ll do very well though and that is crushingly disappointing, obviously when I go and see it and it is utter bollocks fair enough.
