    Has anyone else seen it? It is a good movie in my opinion though the story is quite cliche really.

    Discuss.

    It was a good movie.
    It caught my attention,but I think they could have made it a bit more interesting.

    One thing that is very surprising is how it is now the highest grossing movie of all time. It basically destroyed Titanic.

    I havent seen it yet, I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD so I can download it, but if I get some extra time on my hands, I might watch it on the web, but it looks very good.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: It was better this time around than the first time I saw it, when it was called Dances With Wolves (20 years ago).

    Visually, it rocked. The 3D was amazing. But I hope James Cameron can come up with an original idea one of these years.

    Yeah, but it wasn't a goverment military force, it was a contracted defense force, with limited on planet equipment. So basically, it was no different than the wild west when people from the west ran into Indians. Yeah, they had rifles and bullets, but they was still out numbered and also didn't know the land. Good movie, def better than Dances with Wolves... lol

    I liked it too, usually I stay away from 3-D movies because they take every chance they get to make a character pop out from the screen, but this wasn't really 3-D, just a really good hi-definition, it had some 3-D elements to it, mainly because if you took your glasses off, you couldn't see squat. I liked mainly because it surprised me, probably because I've played too much halo, because the humans lost.

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but if you look in the mirror with your 3-D glasses on, and close one eye, the other eye of the glasses is totally blacked out, it's pretty cool actually.

    That's because Dances with wolves didn't have 3D or space marines...

    oh yeah, I see how you're right, excellent historical allusion.
