It looks freaky as heck. But given how horror remakes turn out, I have pretty low expectations.

It looks very promising and has an intriguing premise, But I can see it coming off as a slight disappointment. However, I think it will do better than Tomorrowland.

My guess is:

That's hilarious. But let's be honest. Did it really have a chance?

Christopher HollandFrom the trailer, it looks slightly different from the book but still looks like it'll be good. Plus, Ernest Cline (author of the book) took part in writing the screenplay. However, given that the book was "Rated R" material, I'm a little worried that they may tone it down to a PG-13 rating for the sake of having an audience. But who knows? It may still turn out good.

I have no guesses for the Tomatometer, but what in the book was Rated R material? I just re-read it last month and nothing is sticking out to me.

Well, if I remember correctly, the book had a significant number of F-bombs.

I mean I figured it would flop and wasn't planning to see it theaters, but dang. But let's be honest. Did this movie really have a chance at being a hit?

While it doesn't look much like a "Jumanji" movie, it looks like a pretty fun flick with an intriguing premise. The trailer gave me a bit of a "Breakfast Club meets Tropic Thunder with a dash of Ready Player One" kind of vibe. What did everyone else think?

I think it looks like a good feel good drama with a supernatural twist and features an intriguing premise. However, given how critics are with these type of films, they'll probably be sour toward it. Also, it features Josh Gad and Britt Robertson in major roles, and neither of them have great tracking records. It might still be a hit with audiences though.

Babel (2006)-4/10

A very sappy/manipulative/pretentious film. It has artistic value, but I watched it last night and I barely remember a thing about it. I expected more from the guy who directed The Revenant and the excellent Birdman.
Mar 7, 2016 11:03 AM
I thought it was awesome, and a very nice return to what made the original trilogy great. I definitely look forward to watching it again,

The review is from Josh Cabrita of "The Youg Folks", and it's actually quite positive. Josh states in his review that "In his recent travesties, After Earth, The Last Airbender, and The Happening, we laughed at Shyamalan, but in The Visit we laugh with him." and says that he'll "accept Shyamalan's apology" and gives it a 6.5/10.

I'm not saying that I have any hope for the film (for all we know, it could still turn out awful), but this could be a sign of a decent film.

I will not be seeing this in theaters, but if it turns out decent, then I'll be happy to give it a watch when it's on Demand.

What does everyone else think?
