    Theatre went nuts went this played. I personally can't wait to see it!
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    I was fine with the trailer, until the poop incident! Other than that, yeah I will admit that the movie looks interesting.

    Looks good, I don't know why people are beefing about it. It kinda brought back a little bit of nostalgia from our childhood. I also like that live action Garfield with Bill Murray doing the voice too. I'm just a sucka for old stuff.

    I bid to differ.

    To my understanding the Garfield movies (and, based on the teaser, Alvin and the Chipmunks) are more family and kids oriented rather than a faithful adaptation of the comic strip/TV series. True to the eyes of internet fanboys the movies may not look impressive, or that certain parts of the movie, if not the entire movies, are silly - the supposely poop joke in the Chipmunks teaser, Garfield and Odie dancing together in Garfield 1 etc. One may dislike a movie because one happens to be not the targeted audience or the movie doesn't meet one's expectation, or because some scenes give one goosebumps. Saying the movie is stupid or f....ed up because of that, though, is like judging a book by the cover, completely disregarding any merits the movie has, IMO.

    By that rationale someone can say Transformers is f....ed up because Megatrons doesn't transform into a pistol or the main human characters aren't oilrag workers named Spike and Sparkplug, or all the Harry Potter films are f....ed up as well cos lots of subplots in the books were cut out because of time. Does that automatically make the films totally unworthy of viewing?

    Most of everything from the 80's are just dump stupid fun. It's what made it cool to watch no matter how it was presented. Of course nothing matches up to the original source.

    Hmm nicely said editman.That's what I thought as well. Garfield and the upcoming Alvin do indeed look kinda corny and crappy but they are still fun movies for the family. Entertaining enough for a single watch I feel. They ain't the best but ain't sucky as well. Personally, I'll be watching Alvin for the sake of nostalgia...
