dry stale not worth wait

Can anyone say Solaris in Italy? I think all the excitement was in the trailer. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a thoughtful movie as much as the next guy, but this movie just seamed so pointless. Clooney is a great actor and if not for his melancholy portrayal of the main character I would have walked out. Instead I stayed to see what was gong to happen. Was he going to get away with the girl, were they going to get him? Alas the end came as suddenly as the beginning... No spoiler here just my recommendation, rent this one..

I've seen many negative and positive reviews. Both are correct for the most part.
This movie is slow and steady, has a predictable, and slightly depressing ending.
While these are all true, and fair, criticisms, they ignore the point of the movie.
Simply put, it's a throwback to old school films(evidenced by the poster design) from a time when filmmakers relied 100% on character development, skillful acting, and cinematic style. It's great change of pace from the slew of horribly acted and poorly written films(such as "Twilight"), and horribly overrated films which completely rely on special effects in place of actual story and character development(such as "AVATAR".
If you want to see a throwback to old school stylistic coolness, this is a movie you should see. If you prefer the more typical films as of the past 40 or so years, I'd suggest staying away, as you'll likely inevitably be disappointed.
Thanks for reading, and happy watching.

The trailers for this film give the illusion that it is an action packed drama. The truth of the matter is the most exciting thing about this movie is the trailer and the fact that after 1hr 45mins you get to leave. One of the worst \ boring movies I have seen in a long time. I kept waiting for this movie to pick up steam, but it never got out of first gear. I WOULD NOT EVEN SUGGEST THIS AS A REDBOX NIGHT.
