Saw it December. It was good, but the first half confused me. LOVED the 2nd half though.
Independent reviews since 1999.

Fun to think its the same guy all these years later.

Sure, it paid homage to the past movies, but that really was what made it such a great experience. It's a fun popcorn movie. You can't go wrong with that. Is it Citizen Kane? No, but that's okay. It never professes to be.
