I've been looking forward to this movie since I first saw the trailer months ago. It's the first movie in a long time that I saw opening night. It was actually a 10pm showing on Thursday. (How do they get away with that? I get midnight showings, but 10pm? Breakin' dem rulez, Cinemark.) I bought my $17.50 IMAX 3D ticket (because I don't need to eat this week or anything) and some junior mints and waited for my friend to come pick me up.
I haven't felt so drained from a movie, maybe ever. This movie is lightyears beyond fantasy space movies. (See what I did there?) It was so stressful and realistic in that you really feel like this is something that could actually happen. It's terrifying in a very unique, humbling way, and all the while you're looking at these beautiful images of the Earth from space. It's overwhelming. It's an experience, not just a movie.
I want to see it again.
