    The Watch

    Was anyone else excited about seeing this movie until they figured out it was about an alien invasion? The previews on TV have done a great job of hiding the fact its a sci-fi, and I didn't realize it until seeing a preview in the theater.

    You didn't notice the alien stuff? You must not have been paying attention.

    I guess I am in the opposite boat, I wasn't excited about this movie until I just learned from you that its sci-fi, now I want to know more.

    So Im not the only one who had no idea. I guess Im not a sci-fi fan at all, with Ghostbusters being the only exception.

    Re: The Watch

    I'm with you Chuckd, although I knew it was a sci-fi right away based on the previews. The previews started and I thought "this looks great" and than they went with the alien route and I'm guessing ruined it.

    A movie simply about those 4 guys being the neighborhood watch would have been great.

    I had no clue it was anything alien related.

    I don't remember anything alien related, but I barely remember the commercials.

    Every single commercial I have seen has shown something that implies aliens. The theatrical trailer just expands on it.
    Aside from that I can't classify anything starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill as sci fi.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
