It has been a long time since I've seen this film, and I forgot alot about it honestly. I saw it drunk in the frat house a few years back, and don't think I appreciated it fully. Looking forward to Gravity, I decided to watch it again.
Just got finished, and I was blown away by it again. That long take where he's navigating the battle with the army vs the refugees was simply incredible and I can only imagine how big of a pain in the arse that scene was to film, not to mention the car sequence. No one can make you feel like you're in a scene like Cuaron can. He's simply incredible at it, and made me look forward to the supposed 17 minute non-stop take in Gravity. The scene towards the end almost brings you to tears, and definitely one of my favorite emotional scenes.
Just a really great film that I mostly sadly forgot about, and highly recommend it.
And to ILoveMoney who suggested "I Am Legend" is on debatably equal footing:
4 out of 4 stars
