I enjoyed this movie very much and I could not stop thinking about it the whole night. I kept thinking about it all day and I think I would like to have some of the money from the sale. I would not be surprised if this is one of the first films ever to do that. It is not my favorite movie, but I will watch it again and again. I would recommend this movie to everyone.

This is a movie that I have been waiting to see for a long time. I loved the movie. I was impressed with the acting of the two leads, and I also liked the way they used the film's time-frame and the specific time-line they chose. They used a lot of the same visual techniques that were used in "The Matrix" to make it more realistic. They also used some of the same music and cinematography, and the movie just seemed to flow really well. I was very impressed by the fact that the movie was made with a budget of less than $50,000. It is a very low budget movie, but it is done very well. I am going to watch it again, and I am going to buy it on DVD when it is released. This movie is definitely worth the money!

Transit is by far the best movie I have seen in 2012. The acting was great, and the plot was amazing. I am a big SciFi/Fantasy fan and I can't get over how awesome this movie was. The movie was great, no slow spots, and the plot was actually amazing. It made me think about what would happen in the future, and it was really interesting. The aliens were very good, they were really unique, and they looked very realistic. The fact that they didn't have guns or other things like that really helped the movie. There are very few movies that I have ever seen that are so good, and I am a huge fan of SciFi/Fantasy. I recommend this movie to everyone who is a fan of SciFi/Fantasy, or just fans of movies. This movie is definitely worth the money. The acting was great, the plot was amazing, and it is by far the best movie of 2012. If you have not seen it, go out and buy it, you won't regret it.

A very good film. A little confusing at the beginning. But it gets better. You will be drawn into the story and will like the characters. I give this film 8 out of 10. You may not be able to understand it but you will love it.

This is a movie which you have to experience and this movie is for those who feel like they are missing something and wonder how they can become a better human being. A must watch movie for the global human community. The idea of the movie is to show how people from all walks of life, races, cultures, religions, cultures, how each of us has a way of dealing with the world around us. That is the very essence of the movie and it is a must watch.

I had no idea what to expect going into this film, but I am so glad I went. It's brilliant, deeply moving, touching, thought provoking and emotional. It was such a pleasure to see an ensemble cast come together and put their all into the movie. The story is rich, emotional and thoroughly fascinating. The acting is fantastic and all the actors give it their all. It is a film that is very accessible, which I was very happy about. I know some people won't understand the strong themes that are presented in the film, but I really think it's something worth talking about. I love it! I absolutely recommend it!

This is a great film. It is a science fiction film and it is a love story. I love this film, it is one of my favorites. The story is great, the acting is great, and the scenery is gorgeous. I love the character actors, the director is a great one. He makes a film that has a great story, great acting, great special effects, and an interesting science fiction story. I give it a 10.

I just watched this film at the Vancouver Film Festival, and I must say I was very impressed. I had seen the trailer for it a few months ago, and I thought it looked interesting. I watched the trailer on a rainy day, and I thought it was a very interesting idea. I liked the concept, the story, the acting, and the acting. The story was very interesting and kept me interested, and the acting was very good. The only thing that I didn't like was that the story could have been better. I think the movie could have been better if it had more of a story. The movie was very interesting, and I recommend it to anyone who is into sci-fi and movie making.

This movie is not like the other ones of this genre. It has a good plot and great acting. It is very intelligent, because it has a good sense of humor, and it makes you think of life in a different way. It is very moving and the characters are very interesting. The idea is great, and it is very interesting. The first part of the movie is very moving, it makes you think about life and what is important. And the second part is also very good, because it shows how the characters were in their world and what they were thinking. It is very good, because it makes you feel that you are in the time period, that you are in the world of the characters. And the characters are so great. They are great actors and they make you feel what they are feeling. And it is also very funny. It is a great movie. It is very good. 10/10

I had the opportunity to see this film at the very last screening of it's last week at the Seattle International Film Festival. I really enjoyed it. I found the story a little bit cliche at times but that is to be expected. I really liked the acting and directing. I really enjoyed the use of the aerial shots of Seattle. I think this film is better than some other films released recently because it is not just one thing but a mixture of different elements. The film is a mixture of science fiction, horror, drama, and fantasy. The movie itself is also very touching and emotional. I think that this is a great film for the whole family to watch because it is a very realistic look at the world we live in and the difficulties that we as humans face.

I have to admit, I have a hard time picking a favorite in this movie. I can't say I really liked it but I have to admit that it was a great movie. It had a few things going for it. The acting was pretty good and the effects were actually pretty good. The story was a bit weird but not that bad. I really enjoyed the whole film. The only thing I really disliked about it was that it wasn't that great. The whole thing was pretty slow and not that great. I think the main reason I liked it was that I really liked the idea of the movie. It had some pretty good ideas and I thought they did a good job of putting it together. The movie was a bit boring and a little slow but I still liked it. I can't really say I liked it all that much but I definitely liked it. I think it was a pretty good movie.

I am amazed that this film has been rated so low. It is a beautifully directed film and I think it deserves its rating. I do not know how it can be rated so low. I think the director did a good job of showing the breakdown of a modern society with the rise of television and the moral and ethical dilemma it causes. I think it is a film which should be seen by every adult.

This is the most well thought out film I have ever seen. It is not just another sci-fi film, this film is so original it makes you think you are watching another movie. The film's production was so impressive I couldn't help but be curious as to how they did it. I would have to say this was one of the most unique films I have ever seen. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is not afraid of a good story. If you are a fan of the film genre, you should watch it. The most special part about this film is the actors. The two actors playing the siblings are one of the best I have ever seen. They are very talented and I don't believe they are making a whole lot of money from this movie. If you want to watch a movie that is very original and well thought out, this is the movie for you.
