Redboxed this today! Thank gawd I'd stayed away from the trailer and any discussions of it or the movie. It was... awesome. Nice to see Amy and the other Whedonites in there. icon_cool

Finally got a chance to watch this on Netflix.  Absolutely loved most of it, but felt that the ending was a bit anticlimactic.  But overall it was a hell of a fun ride.  It's just too bad that the final destination left a little to be desired.  Fortunately it didn't ruin the film for me, as the rest of it was an absolute blast.  I'm just glad I managed to avoid any and all spoilers.  I sat with both a grin and a look of complete bewilderment all the way through to the end. 

It's a rare thing to see something so unique anymore.  Sure, it played with material that has been done 1000 times before, but somehow did so in a completely unique and refreshing manner.   thumbsup

I'm glad you liked it, Pete.  It truly is a thing to experience something like that cold.  The ending is a bit odd, but I have yet to hear anyone come up with something that's still in that vein that wouldn't have seemed like a cop-out.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I think the biggest "fuck you" moment from the filmmakers (in an amusing way of course), or at least it felt as such, was when "the fool" commented that it would have been cool to see the gods.  I think in his words it went something along the lines of "now that would have been a fun weekend."  When the film ended and you don't get to see them, that left me thinking son of a bitch.  I would have liked to see them too.   icon_lol

I know some folks hate the ending, but I actually thought it was perfect.  Rarely do you see a film follow through on even a 10th of what the penalty was for failure when it's that magnitude.  The cheap way they concluded I chalk up to budgetary constraints.  It's a pretty small film, I believe.

And I'll say it again:  Bradley Whitford stole that film.
