Re: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Speaking of science fiction movies, I just read a review of the fourth "Terminator" movie being released.  I like Christian Bale, but the reviews say the movie's not so great.

I just saw the previews yesterday and I have to admit, it looks like it could be really good! And, yes, Christian Bale is fantastic. But most all trailers look great, right? So I guess we'll just have to wait and see.... It opens this Thursday (5/21/09), right?

   Yes, it does come out this weekend!!! Christian Bale is one of my all time favorite actors, all his movies are fantastic and I just don't think T4 will be any exception to that. It just doesn't seem possible for it to be awful with Bale in it. I'll be supper disappointed if it is, that's for sure.

Yeah I'm having a conflict. T4 or UP. T4 or UP. T4 could be awsome. But it could be as so-so as T3. However UP is in 3D, so....a pixar in 3D.

 

Not to mention I could always go see Star Trek a third time.
