Everyone was right, from office co-workers to FB out of town friends to Captain Canada, it was indeed worth experiencing on the big screen. I also, when necessary, will go out of my way for 2-D cause the 3-D is just not that needed for the duration of most films trying to get the extra $3-5 out of you. However, again, this movie makes it work for about 80min of it's 95min run time. I saw it in IMAX 3-D and that's an $18 ticket here.

This is that rare movie that absolutely demands to be seen on the biggest screen you can find, in 3D. This would not be the same movie in 2D, let alone on a TV. It took Alfonso Cuaron years to make this, and it shows; this is virtuoso stuff, merging the absolute best movie-making technology with some wonderfully humanistic storytelling. Sandra Bullock gives the best performance I've ever seen from her.
Well crap. I was going to save this for DVD. So seriously, it's big screen worthy of my theater dollars? I didn't doubt the quality but wasn't sure it screamed "must see big screen". But it is worthy of my $12 then?
If any movie in the last few years demands to be seen on the big screen, it's this one. It's hands down the best 3D I've ever seen.
While I feel Bullock did a solid job in Blind Side, for which she won her Oscar, I can't say she was a hands down best choice that year. Her performance here though validates that Oscar and I'd be surprised if she doesn't get at minimum a nod come February.
Clooney also does a great job with his more limited role but the charisma and charm is still there through that fishbowl helmet.

Having now seen it I wonder what it might've been like with the long attached Rachel Weisz and Robert Downey Jr.
