    Saw it with a room full of critics and one -- who you'd know -- stood up at the end and said, "Play it again!"

    Huge hit to come.

    Definitely looking forward to it. An interesting piece in the NYT today about how Robert Ludlum, much like Tupac, is a prolific artist even in death (although all three Bourne books-movies were written long ago): http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/30/business/media/30ludlum.html?8dpc

    I have free access to the private screening on Wednesday this week at the box office. I have been waiting for this movie to come out. This has been my "must see" movie of the year so I can't wait to go and see it. Thanks Tiger for the review.

    Previews do look good. Looking forward to it.

    I am so excited to hear this. I have been looking forward to this movie all year. It's going to be tough for it to be better than "Once" or "Hot Fuzz."

    This is the one I've been waiting for... Roeper and some other guy gave it two huge thumbs up last night...

    I've been colossally disappointed by this Summer's movie crop this summer with the notable exceptions being "Knocked Up" and "Hot Fuzz" which actually came out in April...

    Cool. You know, reading the books... I've come to the opinion that the movies are actually superior to the books. Can't say that about many flicks (actually, I can't think of any).

    Basing this on the early buzz for the third installment, the Bourne movies seem to be an rarity these days, a series that doesn't decline in quality as it progresses. It's really impressive. Maybe it's just too early in the day, but I can't think of any recent series that can claim that. Looking forward to Ultimatum.

    However, it seems like the reviews on this one don't seem to advance it much past the plot in No. 2. Not that I'm complaining.

    Jason Bourne = Over-rated! Clap, clap, clap clap clap!

    I'm in the extreme minority that read the books, loved the books, and have yet to see the movies. I think I'll have to go back and re-read Ultimatum and then go see the movie to see how it compares.
