    Exactly, and the Morwen having a genuine reason to be pissed off and killing people was also another something different than the usual mindless monstor.

    I take it you ended up enjoying it then Figs?

    I loved it.

    I got my roommates to watch it and at first they thought it was going to suck because it is a bit low budget but they ended up thinking it was badass too.

    Yeah, the Morwen having a good reason was definitely another positive. Although I'm a sucker for monsters and monster type films, so even if it was just another monster killing just to kill I still would have liked the movie.

    Try this one:

    Yeah, I still would have loved it, but it was nice twist that the monstor had a genuine reason to be pissed, but it was still an awesome monstor anyway, and Kainan's story was a damn good one. That was another thing I liked, it wasnt action scene after action scene, we were able to see the characters progress and grow.

    I have been recommending it to everyone, my brother watched it and loved it.

    The awesome thing is, even though it flew under most people's radars, a few nights ago I put in my votes for the Spike TV awards and it is one of the nominees for best sci-fi.

    I think it was the Spike awards. Whichever one is airing in October.

    It was in the spike awards, I saw it earlier, I believe it was one the nominees for best sci-fi movie, which was surprising considering the amount of Sci-fi movies we got this year. I can this becoming a cult movie over the next few years definately.

    You should give it a chance, it's pretty good.

    ^I would recommend it to anyone who likes Sci-fi and Vikings, its like a perfect merging of the two. It helps that the creature is great, as is Kainan's story, and Sophie Myles is so shagable its unbelievable!

    Add to that John Hurt and Ron Perlman and you have a winner!

    Great movie. I'm picky about what I buy on blu-ray. But this one is one I plan to buy. I thought it was really well done.

    Ha ha, she is a cutie isnt she, love her smile and shes actually a good actress as well. I also thought the score was really well done.

    The only problem with the Blu-ray is the low budget sometimes shows, but other than that, it mostly looked great, especially the scenery and the majority of the effects.

    The only thing I didnt like about the movie (apart from no naked Sophia)
    was that the Morwen wasnt really finished off in a definitive way, I could easily see it surviving that fall.

    When i asked my local rental store about Outlander they said that it'll (finally) be available on October 20th. There's still no word yet on when it will go on sale so for now i'll have to make do with this.

    Release dates of movies on dvd don't always match up. I'm just glad it's finally (nearly) here.:o

    ^I really had no expectations when I watched it but I really enjoyed it, it is flawed of course but its definately worth a watch or two.
