It's getting serious reviews, how about 97% on Rottentomatoes 59 critic reviews and serious oscar consideration. Watched the critic on CBS Sunday morning state that 3D version was mind blowing. I think I will see this at the IMAX in 3D. I was skeptical as well but heavy hitting critics are going nuts about this.
I'm waiting for the audience reviews. There are a lot of movies where the critics are all going crazy, but the general audience isn't particularly enthusiastic, and then there are movies with the opposite figures.
That decides whether I'll watch the movie in cinema or at home. Good audience rating --> watch in cinema. Otherwise its a thinking movie, or maybe a serious one, so I'll watch at home.
