Everyone I know talks about how great this movie is and I love sci-Fi, but I have tried to watch this like 5 different times and I fucking hate it. I can never get past the first 30 minutes before I have to turn it off.
What am I missing here?
Sounds like you're missing the last hour and a half.
Maybe put the Newcastles down and just try to stick it out. Well, on second thought, maybe grab a 12 pack of Newcastles and plow your way through!
