I watched it. it wasn't that crash hot. not enough happened in it. we need dialogue driven three hour movies from them if they are ever to even scratch the surface. hopefully in another 50 years someone else makes a version, although thats probably not going to happen /:

I hope to get over to see it next week. Sorry to hear it wasn't as good as it could have been. The reviews in the newspapers have been mostly positive.

I saw it last night. There was only one place in it that I thought to glance at my watch to see what time it was. (This is how I judge how interesting a movie was, if it is very interesting I don't get curious about the time, if it is very boring I keep glancing at my watch. )

Visually it was believable. At no time did I think there is a CGI. The acting was the best yet. The casting was done well. It did seem rushed, but then there was a lot to fit in. The ending (I am assuming we don't need to worry about spoiling ?) was handled well enough. I'd read some criticism of an important scene left out, but I felt what was done was adequate and that more was not needed considering the parts already cut out of the story.

I don't feel inclined to pay to see it again in the theater, but I'll buy the DVD.

I loved it! It's always more exciting at the theatre. It has been so interesting to see the actors grow up before our eyes from one film to the next.
