    And 79 percent liked it on Rotten Tomatoes, so obviously there are a lot of people who enjoyed it.

    I really like Rango. Suprising how many small children were in the theatre though. I guess since it is a cartoon that parents thought it would be for them but it was really more adult with cussing a lot of violence and some sexual undertones. I personally laughed my arse off.

    My husband and I were very disappointed in this cartoon. It is for adults to see and not children. I am so grateful I did not take any children to see this movie. Most of the script lines were in poor taste and pretty scary characters for small children to see. There was alcohol, smoking and cussing and some other adult talk about body parts that children do not need to hear about.I rate this movie a F for failure to make it kid friendly.

      Every review was warning parents that Rango was not a kid friendly film. Even the rottentomato.com summary for the film stated that! I’m surprised that people were not aware of that.

        They’ve been running promos on Nick like crazy. Not everyone reads reviews and the promos that were on Nick made it seem very kid friendly

      It was not for children under 9. Its great to have an anime catering to someone other than toddlers. I give you an F for sensitivity.

    My 11 year old son and I both enjoyed it. As with any creative endeavour, it’s completely subjective. Many will like this film, many will find it stupid. Don’t trust anybody’s opinion. Go see a film for yourself.

    Can anybody tell me if The Adjustment Bureau was any good? I would really like to see it, as well as Battle: Los Angeles. Sucker Punch also looks really good, seeing as it’s from Zach Snyder. The only thing that’s deterring me from Red Riding Hood is that it’s from the director of Twilight. If it gets good reviews, I might consider seeing it.

      You have good taste. I can honestly say I would be seeing Red Riding hood were it not for the director. Even from the commercials, you can tell it’s gonna be bubblegum direction.

      I was told that The Adjustment Bureau was good, but it fails to answer all the questions the movie asks about free will and stuff. And it looks like an Inception style film but its more of a romance movie than a science fiction film. Personally I don’t see anything wrong with that and plan on catching it next weekend, along with Rango, Battle LA, Sucker Punch, Paul, and if it makes it to my town, Jane Eyre.

      I saw it this Sunday morning. It was better than Rango. Although that doesn’t take much to do that. It had it’s moments, touching sentiments, etc…but something was missing to make it a certified ‘good’ movie like Inception. The genius was absent and it did not inspire me to go make movies…unlike Inception or Shutter Island.

      • dominic

        Thanks for the info, you guys! Maybe I’ll catch The Adjustment Bureau next weekend.

      It’s a very silly movie that is incredibly misrepresented by its marketing.

    I’m just relieved to not see Justin Bieber’s “Director’s Cut” in the top 5. What a ripoff of young fans to add 40 more minutes footage and expect the parents to cough money for another 3-D ticket price.

  • Amy

    I didn’t read any reviews because I usually don’t agree with them, so I had no idea what to expect, except for the trailers. I was excited to see it with my 21yo and her roommate. We found it boring, few good lines/dialogue and are glad we didn’t go with little children because the language was not appropriate for a movie geared toward children. I think it should have had a PG13 rating. I wish I could get those hours and dollars back.

  • matt

    I saw it. It was boring. I am a Depp fan and also a 3D Animation fan…but the story was so boring I could hardly keep from walking out to see Adjustment Bureau.

  • Zach

    I saw it yesterday and it was nice not as good but I had a laugh or two and Johnny Deep is one of my favorite actors

  • Justin

    Saw the Adjustment Bureau and loved it. Very good film, not quite as good as Inception(plus don’t compare it to Inception either, because they are very different movies), but it was well-directed and entertaining. Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, and Anthony Mackie gave great performances.

  • Brandon

    I didn’t like Rango that much. My daughter fell asleep in it. Critics have been a horrible job lately judging movies.

  • Jody

    I saw Rango and really liked it. I guess I can see that the story arc seemed a little all over the place, but I found lots of humor and entertainment in the movie. I haven’t seen all those spaghetti westerns though I did see Chinatown, but nevertheless all the movie references didn’t bother me. I found it funny. Oh well, to each their own, but I’m surprised my opinion of the movie differed from so many people.

  • lizzie

    Well the movie I love most of all is Homeless to Harvard.

  • Critic2be

    The movie was absolutely horrible!!! Don’t waste your money! No plot, horrible script and unappealing characters. The only positive was the effects…(yawn).

  • Mike

    Maybe the marketing was off but it is not a kid’s (13 & under) animated film–THANK GOD! Finally, something serious and clever for adults. It opens with a study on Aristotle’s Poetics and moves self-consciously through the Campbellian Hero’s Jorney accompanied by a Greek chorus of Mariachi owls. It’s full of literary & film references from Don Quixote to Chinatown, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Urinetown and all those wonderful spaghetti western archetypes like Jack Palance & Clint Eastwood. Yes, you have to have actually contemplated your own existence outside of your bubble to laugh at your blind, silly, oh so human self-importance. This film left me excited and thoughtful & is def Oscar worthy! See it. See it. See it!!

      I liked it too.
