It wasn't bad, it wasn't very good. If it weren't for the gimmick, no one would give this any attention.

I'm glad it was free.

The gimmick being that it was heavily promoted during Lost and it has Matthew Fox in it? :lol:

I've seen this preview before every movie I've gone to over the last year. There is no way I will see the actual movie now, even if I wanted to before.

I just love the previews. They show and tell absolutely nothing, it's just a series of a couple second shots of shit like:

"Move now!"

"Rewind!"

"Tell the truth!"

"Look out!"

"I saw something!"

"Mr. President!"

Those moments are just too exciting not to show, it's not like they have no faith in their own movie and are ashamed to actually show anything from it.

I was surprised when I looked at my local theater listings and saw that this was only 90 minutes long. Is it a good use of those 90 minutes or is it slight and choppy?

I wanted this movie to be good. Oh well.

Be Kind Rewind is getting underwhelming reviews, too. Looks like Charlie Bartlett is going to win the weekend.

It felt longer than 90 minutes.

It wasn't awful...it just seemed derivative of lots of other things.

Apparently the plot's mishmashy. I expect it to be just like the trailer.
