There's at least one other person here who's is pumped for The Hobbit...me! I'm eager also to hear the music, as I loved much of the music in Lord of the Rings.

its funny. i was never...still am not... a sci-fi geek. having said that...i was a monster LOTR freak. i knew all about all of the side stories, villains, minute little details that any star wars dork would have been proud of. now, i remember this hobbit cartoon when i was a kid that my dad used to like (he was/is a big sci-fi geek. it was because of him i ended up reading the LOTR series). i hated that hobbit cartoon. it was just so cheesily drawn...

but you get a guy like peter jackson to direct...and i am in. can't wait. may even take my kids to see it at the theater

It looks like a good time, Chris. One thing, though- what we're talking about here is fantasy, which is quite a bit different from sci-fi (technically, Star Wars would be considered fantasy as it's got a lot of fantastical elements such as the force). I'm just picking nits, though. :wink:

You know ef, you're right. And I should know better..I have buddy of mine who IS a sci-fi guy and he never hesitates to correct me when I wrongly label LOTR as sci-fi. (not to split hairs here chris but that's more of a fantasy picture)

And it does look like a good one, doesn't it?

so...i watched 'the dark kight rises' on christmas day (blu ray) ....

...quit frankly, i thought it was way overlong and more than a bit boring...overwritten, but under-thought-out...i didn't find the villain slightly interesting, wasn't surprised by and could've cared less about the 'surprise twist' about the villain...and i could've really cared less about any of the new characters...

...and the ending ?? ...i guess it is a set-up for the next movie ????

nah !! can't say i'm slightly intrigued...i think, after that, i might just rather have a root canal...

if i were to try and think of one word to describe the whole thing...it would be pretentious...the whole thing never grabbed my attention...and i did not feel that way about either of the other two nolan-directed batman films...but this one ???

completely blown opportunity...glad i didn't spend any $$ on it...

Just saw "Jack Reacher" and yes I liked it. Nothing artsy about it but it kept my interest. Took my son. "it's gonna be a great day", and it was.
