Who here has seen this movie?

I just got back from the theaters, and got to say WOW! What a great film. You guys have to go see it. If you like Christopher Nolan's other films like "Batman Begins" or "Memento" then you will also love this film. I love when there are new fresh ideas for movies after all the remakes that have been released. This is a film I have to see again.

The acting is fantastic, I love watching David Bowie act. He should do it more often. Imagine David Bowie playing Nicolas Tesla.

I have seen it. There is no WOW from my side, except for couple of scenes. The movie is still a worth watch in theater.

I would give a 7/10 and i do consider this a notch lower than 'Memento' and 'Batman Begins'.

I liked Following, but that's the only Nolan film I've seen. (I have Memento on DVD, but haven't watched it yet.)

Loved it.

I do have one thing that I didn't like, but discussing it will give away the plot. But, excellent entertainment.

I saw The Departed too. Loved that one as well. Also *tried* watching Saw III - but left the theater after 10 minutes. Am a fraidy cat

Borat is on my list now.

It was OK. It stretched the bounds of plausibility slightly less than The Illusionist last month, until the very last scene at least. I thought David Bowie did a good job, and Scarlet of course is always nice to look at. The two magicians were pretty wooden, but I guess they gave the women something nice to look at too!

Well, of course we all remember that one. But he also had "The Man Who Fell To Earth" "After Hours", which he played a great character. And "Absolute Beginners"
