    Re: all of us will be interested in some aspects

    To me, unless you previously stated whether or not you will all be looking at the same aspects, all mean each one may show an interest in different things.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: all of us will be interested in some aspects

    It depends on the context- if you know the film and the people's tastes, you might be able to predict which aspects they will like, but there's nothing in the words that shows that. In speech, you could stress certain/some to make this clear- you'd be speaking to an audience who already knew what was coming, like an in-joke.
