Has been moved I see - no surprise.
Just wasn't realistic to be June when there was no pre-hype.

I thought the book was one of the most overrated books I ever read.
I heard people who loved the book really disliked the movie.
They changed directors for movie #2 I believe because of that.

Meh!! I didn't even know about the book and I was still board by the movie. The preview for it made it look a lot better than it was.

I loved the book. I would have never thought to have wanted to read it, but my wife got it for Christmas and ended up not reading it through. I got curious and read the first chapter and got hooked.

I have been dying to see the movie in theaters, but I may wait until the blu-ray. I have heard nothing but praises for it's acting and presentation. 85% on the tomatometer ain't bad at all.

I've yet to read the book, and the movie looked just okay to me, but the hype and good reviews will lead me to do both at some point.

Its a political movie, people either love it or hate it. It has very deep libertarian teachings in it. Which is why a Libertarian like me loved it.

I didn't get that from the movie at all. Sure, there's a warning against 'big government' if you want, but if anything the books are about a far right-wing regime gone horribly wrong.

Don't know about the books but this movie is the complete opposite. This movie has the government in control of everything which is very far left.
