    Who else thinks this movie looks terrible? I think a lot of people will go see it just because Peter Jackson worked on the screenplay.

    It's hard for any movie to be good where the primary focus seems to be on the FX.

    People will say "but duh, sci-fi something something" but the best sci-fi still revolves around character and plot. Also a lot of recent movies could benefit from slowing down and not being so fuckin hyper-kinetic.

    The phrase is stop and smell the roses, not run screaming past the roses while being chased by a pack of giant cg robots.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    The entire premise seems lame. In any post-apocalyptic world, resources are going to be scarce because...well... Apocalypse. Nothing says efficiency like driving a fucking city megapolis around like a tank. Also... were geographical features destroyed during this cataclysm, or is London driving around mountains, oceans, etc.?

    People want instant gratification all the time. If a movie has a slower pace and makes you think, people will get bored. Probably the reason why Michael Bay movies are liked these days. I prefer movies without FX.
