and did not love it. It was OK, but for me at least (and I'm in the minority- what is it? $1 billion worldwide yet?), it didn't live up to the hype.
I was not impressed with the first 2/3 of the movie or with the 3D.
I felt scenes in the first half of the movie were CGI or CGI's sake.
I thought the story was campy and really not that interesting or even very original.
Characters were one dimensional and almost cliche- the military guy in particular (although I kinda liked him the best)
I EVEN disliked the fact that he was screwing an alien (come on, tell me you didn't see that coming from the beginning of the movie) and shooting at humans. We're supposed to cheer for that?
And just so you don't think I'm a Cameron/sci-fi/movie hater, I really liked one of his other blockbuster movie, Titanic.
Ridley Scott's Gladiator was a much better movie for so many reasons.

'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
