Has anybody seen this movie? A couple of weeks ago I was looking through Red Box and saw it. I know it didn't get very good reviews but it looked like a fun watch while drinking home brews so I dropped a buck and a half and brought it home.
I was very surprised. I thought it was actually very well done. Superb special effects, good story, great action. And even featured a bunch of WWII Navy Vets.
I liked it because the Aliens weren't insurmountable foes. Their weapons weren't that far advanced over ours.
So I went to our local Family Video tonight to see if they had any used copies. They wanted $12.95 for used blu rays. I did some quick shopping on my phone and discovered Best Buy has brand new ones for $19.99. For $7 more I went that route.
I figure going to the theater I would drop $12 on admission, then if I wanted any snacks they would really gouge me. At home I can drink beer while watching, pause the movie if I have to go to the bathroom, I don't have annoying people around me, and I don't have to worry about getting bed bugs from the theater seat
And I get to watch the movie as many times as I want.
Gotta love my big screen tv and surround sound system.
