Skyline

I have tickets to watch a pre screening of it. I had wanted to see it since the first preview but every time another preview comes out it gets worse and worse. I never get tired of alien type movies but the acting looks horrid. Unlike District 9 where they used unknown actors that were actually good, Skyline uses unknowns but they aren't good actors.

Eh it's free and I'll report back on Nov. 11th.

Ok I see there's no interest in this movie, good. I just saw it and it's epicly bad. Really bad. The whole theater laughing at parts it's not supposed to bad.

Now the special effects are obviously good, and the film score is great. Everything else is bad. How did this even pass editing and get approval, I have no clue. It was bad enough I saw it free, I couldn't imagine paying to see that. Even the lady overseeing the whole theater and event was apologizing.

The begining plot was actually good, the middle and ending plot were not. The movie plays out in the exact opposite of the decisions that would of been made in real life if something like this were to occur. Nothing is even remotely close to reality in the things they use. B2 bombers flying like F-16's and soldiers standing and shoulder firing Barret 50 cal's were just a few.

I'am curious to see how bad the ratings will be on rotten tomatos lol.

The movie says nothing about sending signals out, infact the movie tells you nothing of how or why they are there. That signal shit was on some obscure trailer for some reason.

The plot in the begining I thought was decent was the idea of them sending these balls of light down so everyone goes outside and checks them out... then you get sucked up.

You're kidding me? Looked like a mishmash of Independence Day and District 9 -- one being a decent movie, the other being garbage.

The teaser trailer looked good, but every second of footage in the subsequent trailers has looked worse and worse. Thanks for confirming my suspicions - I'll be skipping this one...

That's exactly how I felt watching each trailer.
