    Looks like that critic enjoyed it more than I did. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry to hear that. The previews were terrific. Yeah, I know, what else is new?

    Hardly surprising. If the trailer is any indication, this movie is C-R-A-P.

    Im confused how anyone could look forward to this movie, it looked HORRIFIC - from the horribly ugly wendy to the troll looking Peter Pan. To me this isnt a story that needs to be continuously remade [​IMG]

    I was turned off of this movie as soon as I saw that the indians had been completely omitted from the trailer.

    I can't stand *sanitized* movies.

    To be honest, I haven't had a chance to see the trailer, or anything from the actual film other than a few stills. I just liked the idea of a new Peter Pan, live action.

    I was decidedly underwhelmed by the first trailer I saw. I have moved this from my theatrical viewing list to my rental list.

    Interesting how that happens after they release a trailer. If I never saw a trailer, I'd probably have put down my money at the theater.

    The teaser trailer made this movie look like a different take on PETER PAN. I saw the theatrical trailer in front of THE LAST SAMURAI (along with a about a million others but that's another story) and it did not seem nearly as impressive as in the teaser. The movie looks like a live action remake of Disney's animated version but with none of the charm.

    Hollywood lost its ability to do "charm" some time ago. It all feels like a bad commercial for children's toys or something. Did the director get tied to a chair and force fed Spielberg's dreadful "Hook" for days? That's what seems to have happened with the look and casting of the film.

    The crocodile CGI looks baaaaaaad.

    And this is only the second time J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan has been filmed.

    Todd McCarthy seems to be somewhat optimistic:
