Saw I Am Legend earlier today

Very good movie. I thought the camera work was great, and Will Smith puts together an excellent acting performance. The special effects are great as well; looking at Manhattan as completely deserted is pretty cool.

A note to those looking for a scary movie: this is more of a thriller movie, not horror. Their are a lot of zombies suddenly attacking, but the zombies themselves aren't scary-looking, just really loud.

The only things I didn't like were the generic parts of the plot, which I won't mention because most people probably haven't seen the film. Still, this is definitely a great theater experience for the special effects.

8/10

Yup I Am Legend was rad! I liked the story and thought Will Smith did a very good job. I would have liked to have seen more of how the virus happened but still it was awesome. Yeah tough to talk about without spoiling it. I will say it's not your typical zombie film. ;-D

I give it a 8.5



Oh and the preview for the new Batman looked awesome!!! 8-o

It should be. The Dark Knight and Ironman are two comic book movies I'm really looking forward to next year. ;-D ;-D

I completely agree; I can't wait for that to come out now. 8-o ;-D

edit: here's the IMDB page: http://imdb.com/title/tt0468569/

It looks like they have an excellent cast in line. ;-D

Yes and Heath Ledger is the Joker and from the previews it looks like he does a really good job. ;-D

I looked up the movie from the link above, aside from recasting Katie Holmes (which is fine with me), the great names are there. Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman. When I saw those names listed for the first movie I knew it had to be great. I was so-so with Christian Bale before the first movie but after BB he's A-OK.

Somehow I've managed to be watching a Beautiful Mind this afternoon. I'd swore it off as a chick flick, but I gotta say this is pretty good.

I saw "Awake" on Tuesday or Wednesday it was okay. The acting was meh meh, but I liked the story and they showed some of the surgery! It was crazy! :-P

I'd give it a 6 or 7/10.

I really wanna see I am Legend! And Heath Ledger looks crazy as Joker! I think that movie is going to be sweet!! ;-D
Keep it lit.

I saw it yesterday, awesome movie. When Sam (the dog) goes into the dark building by that hive, Will Smith did an absolutely awesome job of acting totally freaked, and it was totally totally freaky right there. The part where he's singing to Sam was awfully emotional, if I'da been a woman, I'd probably have cried. :-b

Pretty much what I would have said. I really don't know why they had to make the "zombies" in CGI. It would have been much scarier if they were real people, I think. Will Smith did an awesome job!

I also give it an 8.5.
