^Haven't seen it BBH. I usually go see movies in wintertime, because in spring/summer we go camping.
I try to avoid reviews before seeing a movie. If I like it I like it, and if I don't I don't.
Haven't read the book, but loved the original movie with Robert Redford
I've seen the trailer for the new one and it looks visually stunning. You should go see it anyway and let us know what you think, because I know this is your time-period genre.
