First of all, this movie is brilliant, clearly. I've not been this impressed by a sci-fi movie in the theatres since Minority Report.
Really. Because I didn't care for that movie and off the top of my head I'd put Moon
, District 9
and A Scanner Darkly
as three films I'd say are significantly better than it and which I saw in theatres.
Personally, for what it's worth, I'd put Inception
on about the same level as Moon
, and rank it a little above District 9
. I haven't seen A Scanner, Darkly
, though, so I can't comment there.
I think we can all probably agree that it's nice to see a well-made, original
SF film doing well at the box office.
