I'm going to spare you what Roger Ebert said about the movie on his television show (mostly since I can't find a transcript of it, hehe). Let's just say that he ripped that film a new one, and his guest reviwer finished off the show by saying, "If you've learned anything from this week's show, remember: Do NOT go see Battlefield: Earth!" I thought Roger Ebert's head was going to explode, that film made him so angry. It was hilarious.
Now, I know a lot of people love to bash Roger Ebert (mostly because so many people are touchy when it comes to their own opinions), but over the last year or so, I've found myself agreeing more and more with his opinions and what he thinks of movies. Some people think that he bashes everything, but if you look carefully, you'll see that he's quite reasonable. Heck, I loved The Matrix, but I do realize that it's a pretty lame backstory (yeah, humans would really block out the sun, alright), mixed with a decent plot, some good ties in to today's society, and awesome effects. I was suprised when Ebert said the same thing about the movie, and gave it a thumb's up for a good effort and some psychology underneath. He said "it's just great to look at." Then, I watched his millennium show, where he listed his favourite movies of all-time. Number one? Pulp Fiction. How can you NOT like the guy a little more after that?
