watched the film last night until 2 AM, and thought it was pretty crap, but satrical at the same time which saved some face. Is the book any better?
Only because it was on a national TV channel here in the UK last night and bobbo happened to mention it.
(More people will have seen the film than read the book and so it's a public service to mention that the two are unlikely to resemble each other.)
The book was a quick read[....]
I enjoyed the movie apart from the info dump sections,like a recruiting tape thing,didn't get that. But the scene where they fight the aliens was superbly nasty,and thats where film as a media has its strength. Am looking forward to reading the book tho and forgetting the film is related to it.
You spend time ruminating what he says and depending on who you are, you either agree with him on an issue or you see flaws in his thinking.
