Wow, I'm surprised by the reviews for this.

I was worried that had negative reviews when you said that.  I was pretty sure this was going to be a good film.  Brick was great.

Bruce Willis seems to sleepwalk through most of his roles these days and I thought (and still think) JGL's makeup looks kinda bad. I wasn't too hopeful but now I'll probably give it a chance.

I just found out that it's rated R, so it probably will be worthwhile after all.

I thought it looked awesome back when I saw the trailer months ago, but I am surprised it has a flawless record on RT thus far...

OK, I just watched this movie (it's already out here in Oz).  Even though the time travel logic doesn't actually work, it was still quite fun.  But it didn't really live up to the high expectations I got from seeing those reviews.  I kept expecting there to be some mind-bending twist in the third act, but it never came.  So my advice is to not let the reviews get your expectations too high before going in.

My magnum opus is now complete.  Read the complete "The Adventures of Hobo Orgy Guy & Blondie" (now in paperback).

I saw it tonight. (Fun fact: Joseph Gordon Levitt stars in each of the last four movies I've seen in theaters.) More or less agree with Morden's review - enjoyable, although the third act left me wanting something more. One reviewer called it "the best science fiction movie since Moon" - hard to think of a reason to disagree.
