So, does anyone not like this movie? We left about halfway through... it was so tedious to watch. It was really disappointing, because I was really looking forward to it. Oh well, I guess.

I still can't figure out why people want to like movies that make you feel like crap.
I take it you were not a fan of nuBSG, then.

Not all sci-fi has to be one big joke at itself, and be full of campy humor, and cheap muppets... to me, that's cheap and crappy sci-fi. I like something that at least takes itself seriously enough to make ME want to take it seriously... at least enough to fork over $10 bucks to see it, or devote an hour of my time to see it every week. If all you want is bumpy-headed baddies, laser-gun fights, and huge explosions, then stick with the JJ Abrams and Michael Bay crowd... they specialize in the art of mindless entertainment.
