No really, sleep tight. Rented it On Demand, fell asleep. Tried to watch it next morning, added a few more hours of sleep. Needless to say, I'm well rested to watch an actual good movie.

I can't possibly imagine seeing this movie again. I'll give the movie some credit in that it gave me a few good scares and unless they are planning on making a sequel, the ending really disappointed me. If you are into aliens and the great beyond kind of stuff, then I suggest going to see this flick but if not, don't waste your time.

I hate the way aliens look so I had to get someone to watch this movie before I did to let me know whether you see their faces or not. HAHA
Dark Skies was pretty awesome! The story was written well and the cast was good. I liked the fact that I didn't get bored with the movie because there was a lot of suspense going on as you waited to see what was going to happen next.
I actually enjoyed an alien movie and didn't have to see an alien face, thank goodness. Check it out!!

This is one of those movies that once you watch it, you realize that it easily could have been a 4 hour movie... there were some inconsistency issues, but not enough to take away from the action... it is a "things jump out from nowhere" type scare without the loud sound effect that usually accompanies the scare attempt... and it works really well because the visually scary parts are perfect! I loved the directors ability to always have you suspenseful and on the edge of your seat thinking to yourself "OMG what's about to happen is going to be horrifying, but I can't even fathom what it will be!" Although I don't think that they get you as emotionally involved in the characters as they needed to, they still connected you with them on a human level, which was plenty to keep you involved.... but the overall feel of the movie was that of "if this stuff is true, we really have no control over what they can and cannot do....completely helpless"...
2 thumbs moderately up from me...

I enjoyed the movie, excellent effects - definately spooky. The ending confused me though - the ending was too abrupt and I heard other people in the audience go, huh?
Other than that - good movie.
