So this new Lotr's is already coming out 8D !

Im not sure if there any good movies left help!


Actually I disagree. I don't think all books are better than all movies. If you mean that movies based on novels often seem to lack something, you may have a point, but I think there are a lot of advantages when working with film to create certain things. E.g you can take things beyond the average reader's imagination as well as show them how *you* want it to look like, and not how they want to imagine it. Also of course there are a lot of techniques that are extremely tedious to do via writing as opposed to film.
If writing was always better than film, no one would bother turning their scripts into movies, right? wink

Im happy to say that i saw Return of the King. It was great! I wont create any spoilers, but im gonna tell you my opinion. So consider that your warning smile

I had some trouble seeing this movie, i went to one theater at midnight showing, they said the film was broken (i knew they were lying, i dont think they had staff that wanted to wait until 3a.m.) So we were screwed that night, so we went the next night. This time we went early, around 8p.m., we couldnt find 1 parking spot, it was like parking in a theme park. It ended up being sold out for the whole night, so we went back to the broken theater, and surprisingly it was working wink This was the 9p.m. show of course; well that was the end of that.

I had the chance to see the new Spiderman 2 previews, it looked very cool, and very promising. I know there's not alot of fans of spidey, although i love everything from marvel siiw .

Now Lord of the Rings, this final chapter explained pretty much everything. Under my vision, i saw no flaws, no mistakes, nothing wrong with this movie. I loved how it started, but i wasnt to pleased with the ending, it was rather long, and i just wanted to end at that point. Everything between was great! It pretty much picked up where part2 The Two Towers ended and the rest has to be a surprise (remember, no spoiler). If you would of asked me if this was a good movie to see and if it was a waste of money. I would say no, its not a waste, and your missing out if you dont see it, so GO! smile


Other then that, im out of movies sadblauw cry sadblauw , looks like i need to catch up on my dvd collection. wink BTW, i just bought Pink Floyd, live in Pompeii, Italy. Good Stuff!

Alright!!!
I just saw 2 movies last night: Peter Pan and lord of the rings 3. They Were GReat! Heres what i thought of them:

Peter Pan
It was SooOo cute lol. I went w/ these little pl(babysitting) and they expected adventure and that but they got some lovey dovey scenes ^_^ ...soooo cute. That kid was so cute(ppan)lol and the girl wendy pretty. I liked the part where she said she would give him a ThimBle and gave him a kiss and then he got back his confidence awww. Lol it was cute how they missunderstood the diff. between a Kiss and a thumble Lol. Over all it was a nice story 4 ALl ages nad cute 2 lol ^_~

LOTR3
Ok this was a movie that i had been waiting 4 a year. I saw both 1 and 2 and now 3, couldnt get on w/ my life without seeing how it aLl ended. Here r some of my opinions on the movie(goes in chronological order..i hope lol)
- The beginning of the movie did not blend in w/ the 2nd part
-the whole part o fthe movie in which they had the battles and frodo had to go destroy the ring was WAYYY too long! maybe thats y the movie was 3 and 1/2 hrs long!! lol
-I dont get y that frodo did not trust sam enough to believe that beasil or whatever that monsters name was he was evil lol and not to be trusted. cant believe he told him to go home confused
-i HATTEDDDDD taht spider part!!!!!!!!!!! EwwwwwwwwwwwwWWWW!!! And what did taht little bottle do anywho? why was he holding up it its face? dont think it worked
-the part where that guy looked like he died in battle and his father thought he was dead 4 sure but he really wasnt and that little hobbit said he wasnt but the father still thought that he was ...was dumb lol The father was going to burn his son alive confused lol
- i felt so sorry 4 those big elephants!! sadblauw Even tho they were stepping on the good guys, it was so sad when they fell down and died sadblauw

more on this later..promise lol wink5

LOTR3 ROCKS! It was unbelievable amazing! The character developments, the plot, and especially with climax that leaves you sitting on the edge of your chair! In the threate we all clapped after that elf did his part on the elephant! That was so genius and cool! I loved that! In my opinion... it's the best movie ever! It's so real, the characters, etc. It's long, but I really enjoyed every part of it. I also watched Gollum carefully for any animating flaws (my habit) and I couldn't find any. I gotta say that it's the best overall in animation, special effects, lightings, emotions, plots,... you get my idea. It's amazing! You HAVE to go and watch it! It's the best of 2 in my opinion and the best movie of all.

I kinda hated that part when they were in that mountain... argh. It had me screaming inside. The best climax ever captured. Yup. colgate I also liked the very ending... they well deserved that reward! colgate

And, only people who watched that movie will know what I am talking about. wink5 No spoilers sorry! reallybiggrin

Well, a little of spoiler ahead so I can explain to Kat about why that bottle is useful...

*WARNING*** A SEMI SPOILER! *****

... =========

Kat: That bottle of light made that spider retreat a bit because it didn't like light. That bottle kept it from getting any closer (barely). Have you noticed that if light wasn't there, then that spider started attacking you with its poisious tail? lachgroen That's basically why. It's sorta like a semi-protection for both of the hobbits. colgate

========

END OF SPOILER wink5

DUH!! lachtraan

LOFT3 continued....
-There was this big evil guy thaty was on 1 of those big flyong monster things and had a big mask on and we were not able to see his face. He looked so fearsome and scary and unbeatable and a WOmAn slases him in his face in a couple of seconds and he dies!! that was so weak!! I woul d of expected him to die after the hardest fiht of teh century or something but .....No!!! A sword in the face was enough O_O lol confused
- When frodos finger got bitten of by that thingy, it was kool because his finger was a bleadding and that which was very kool. But it was so very obvious that he was folding it LoL. The end o fthe movie was a bit fatter than usual, suggesting taht he was indeed beding it.
-When the 'King' finished his battle w/ th ehelp of the ghosts and then he regrouped to leave agian, y didnt taht woman that killed that super evil guy come? Where was she? shouldnt she have been applauded 4 her bravery or something.
-when frodo and sam we right there at the mountain frodo expecially was dead tired. Then came the monster thingy, he died and all of a sudden u see frodo Up and running like a little gazell! O_O Ok there confused
- I think that the movie should have ended when frodo and sam here rescued by those big birds..everything after that went SOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow
*not in order
- somewhere in the movie we saw taht the father or arwen said to the 'king' that she was dying..........how come she wasnt dying at the end of teh movie? she didnt get that pretty necklack back, then y di dit look like she was going to live?
- If taht wizzard is so powerful..then y didnt he defeat the ugly monster evil ppl with his stck?
- at the end of the movie all the goo dppl taht remained gather at the top of the mountain to celebrate...whatever lol. That girl with long blong hair taht went to fight didnt seem tOO uncomfortable when she saw the 'King'...the one who she told she loved but was unfortunate enough to be rejected sadblauw She was smiling and all when he walked by. Irl that woul not happen...she girl woul dhave raging fire and hatred in her eyes if she saw the guy they told taht they loved...wouldnt u think so?

When there was taht big reunion thing on that castle, every1 was wearing such preety clothes! Especially the fairies and that! It was nbeautiful. I like the head band of Orlando bloom(so cuuuute Lol), it was very cute and looked real. Arwens crown thingy was preety as well.

Arwen should have said at least something when she saw the king again dont u think? and that girl taht married sam...not a Word from her either! confused lol

I didnt get y frodo left??! and where di dhe go?
The movie WAS great tho wink5 All 3 parts were great. thi spart was worth waiting 4.

I want starwars 3 to come out

Whoa Kat, what good eyes you have!

Ok let's see...
There was this big evil guy thaty was on 1 of those big flyong monster things and had a big mask on and we were not able to see his face. He looked so fearsome and scary and unbeatable and a WOmAn slases him in his face in a couple of seconds and he dies!! that was so weak!! I woul d of expected him to die after the hardest fiht of teh century or something but .....No!!! A sword in the face was enough O_O lol confused
I know exactly what you mean! I was actually disappointed that it was THAT easy. overspannen But at least that girl did something. reallybiggrin I was going for her because she has been rejected many times since she is a woman and I am woman too. I had to support her. I was like, "Go girl! Go girl!"

When frodos finger got bitten of by that thingy, it was kool because his finger was a bleadding and that which was very kool. But it was so very obvious that he was folding it LoL. The end o fthe movie was a bit fatter than usual, suggesting taht he was indeed beding it.
Yeah, I have to agree with you... but I guess it could be assumed as a swelled finger. A nasty swelled finger. Well you know what I mean. colgate Perhaps they thought of that and thought that it'd be a cheap way to hide his real un-bit finger. geenidee

If taht wizzard is so powerful..then y didnt he defeat the ugly monster evil ppl with his stck?
Good question... I wondered about that too especially that he "evolved." When that ugly monster birds came to the white tower (castle... or whatever you call it).. I wondered why Gandelf didn't use his staff to light up so they would be blinded by it and fly away... it worked with them earlier in the movie so why not? Was there a certain limit in his power that he couldn't do it? Well, why not at least light his staff up so that monster birds would be blinded by it? And also why didn't trees come after they won that battle at the middle-age tower? At least they could come and support the dark-age war. They would be definitely handy for elepants and the giants. You know what I'm saying?

Ok, that's all I have to say... unless I haven't thought of something yet. wink5

Ju-on and Azumi, two very good japanese movies. The first one is a horror movie, and the other is a samurai/assassin type movie. Great action. smile I'm also looking forward to the upcoming Alien vs. Predator movie.

That seems cool, i like those stories. I have both Predators wink , i need to get Alien, but who would win? In Predator 2 they had Alien skulls in the ship, people said this idea has been illustrated for a long time. Seems good smile

Lately its been very slow when it comes to movies, for Dvd's all i bought was Howard Stern's Private Parts, its a great movie, i like it grin


Lets see i saw previews to HellBoy and Kill Bill Volume .2 , HellyBoy looked weird, i didnt know what to think after i saw the previews to that movie. I guess its just another generic movie filled with suprises. Now, Kill Bill Volume .2, the movie should be great. But the previews, were kinda of dumb, check it out you can see how dumb it really is wink http://comingsoon.net/movies/k/killbill2.php

I guess when movies start to roll around, i'll be back kiekeboe

Yep. It’s called “The My-Powers-Don’t-Work-Until-The-Very-Last-Second Rule”, which states that Gandalf is only useful when all else fails, and can’t be used until at least 300 men have been lost in battle. Then you can play the Gandalf card and watch as he effortlessly disposes of the evil and restores peace to the area with a mere flick of his magic staff. This rule compliments the “Good vs Evil Exponential Power Boost Rule”, which states that any ‘good’ character will always possess the necessary strength to just barely complete the task at hand, regardless of newly presented challenges. Case in point: “Frodo and Sam eventually making it to the top of the volcano seemingly using every last bit of energy, only to be blessed with additional power when it becomes necessary to fight off Smeagal a further time.

(Just a note, Ath, Sam and Frod were more hopped up on andrenaline at that point, or so I would guess. I mean if you almost died a bjillion times for this ring and then this little f**khead comes and takes it, you'd be pretty mad too..)
But, yeah, I get the whole thingy there.
LORT seemed a little too chique(sp). Some common things like how none of the main characters ever just die in the middle of the war "But they're super good!" You say? What bout them elephants, kinda hard to dodge them with the exception of elfy boy. The part that totally ruined it for me was "I am no man! *Kill!*" That was just too action moviey, spoiled the whole thing neutral

Your right neo that was kinda weak. HURRAY FOR WOMEN KIND!!!! No *** that. LOTR was okay. its cool seeing the fantisy stuff come to life. You wanna check out a cool movie though that in no way relates to LOTR. It has a silly title but it is the funniest movie i have ever seen. 'Cannibal the musical'. amazing. oh and best action movie of all times. 'Boondock saints' oh and 'big lebowski'. 'dead alive' I'm ganna stop cause if i don't i'll go on for ever.

Its almost like Professional Wrestling(fake wrestling) grin , good vs. Bad and someone at the end always has the upper hand wink Sorry for the weird analogy, but to answer the first question that DM7 asked, that's what happens in the story. They just re-create it in the movie, so what can you do?O-well Anyone heard of good movies lately?
