Was I the only one who was disappointed in this movie? I was really dying to see it but I wish I had gone to see The Avengers again. Or just stayed at home.

I was extremely disappointed, because I thought the title was "Promiscuous".

Totally different movie than I thought

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Try channel 590! :lol:

Disappointed, too, but the 3D effects were good, graphics great overall. The story, as such, wasn't much, and it certainly had Ridley Scott writ large all over it, big surprise!
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Yeah the visuals were outstanding. But the characters made stupid decisions and assumptions (Only having a few hand guns and some flame throwers tyo use as weapons. Telling the head of security to leave his gun because they were on a scientific mission and the head of security doing it. The two ding-a-lings who got so nervous they had to go back to the ship and then got lost even though they have GPS and a 3D image of every cave those probes flew into. And then those same two think it's a good idea to try to touch some weird looking alien snake thing....)

Being a H.P. Lovecraft fan I found this movie very enjoyable since its extremely similar to "At the Mountains of Madness" , So much so that Guillermo Del Torro canceled his adaptation of AtMoM due to this movie lol.

Despite the characters making stupid decisions I quite enjoyed the film, it was really interesting to see how the "Black Goo" interacted with different people/creatures depending on the level of exposure to it.
Being an Alien fan (well only a fan of the first 2 films) this was great and answered alot of questions, as a Fan It was really awesome to see a protomorph on screen for the first time.
