Very cool movie!

I've watched this movie about 3 or 4 times and each time I like it more. The special effects are pretty decent and it has a very interesting storyline. There is just enough logic in the plot that allowed me to let go and enjoy a wild and awesome ride!
A fun movie!!

Awful- I lost brain cells

I am shocked that Mr.Kingsley did this awful B movie. The writers slaughtered the original story by Bradbury, and perverted it into a laughable, ridiculous and galactically stupid story- I think I actually lost brain cells watching it. The original story by Bradbury was smart, original, thought provoking, and awesome. Dont waste money on this will lose some brain cells too.

Pretty good! "Lost Braincells" guy is a moron!

It was a pretty good movie. I enjoyed the effects and storyline. The "lost braincells" guy is just upset. If they had stuck to the original story, the movie would have only been as long as a segment from "The Twilight Zone". That's not very long. They added more stuff to give you a longer movie with more story.
