I saw it last Friday in the 3D format. Absolutely amazing, and beautiful imagery! I, too, have been waiting for a good SciFi/Fantasy movie to come out, and this seems to fit the bill! Unfortunately, the genre seems to be slowly dying out, with less and less movies being made that fit into here. It seems that the only things coming out are so-called comedies that are more stupidity than comedy and blood-and-guts fests that have no other reason for being than to see how many ways they can kill someone and gross you out. This was a refreshing addition to the SciFi/Fantasy genre, even if the critics were not enamored of it. Yes, the story has been told before, but, truthfully, there are very few "new" ideas.
