been watching the "Blog-Vids" from Peter Jackson's production of "The Hobbit."
Did not know the movie is going to be 3-D, until this last Sunday. It looks like they are pouring as much effort into this film, as the did into LOTR...

Yes padowan, according what I did red it was made a second time from the begining in order to use the latest 3D technology.
can't wait either
and@Ela, I enjoyed very much Vicky Christina Barcelona.
There's some joyful biterness in it, and I tend to think that Vicky and Christina could be seen as two facets of a single personnality : the rational one, who try to fit social admited and awaiten behaviours, and a more intuitive, spontaneous ones.
great acting. a Good Woody Allen.

Sorry, mind on over drive again babble switch on spelling check off....
padowan thanks I'll check that out as well. I'd love to see how they do smaug.
Hope he keeps the light parts in as well. loved the balance of the fellowship but thought the last two dwelt too long in the dark. And took too many freedoms with such a well known story. (of course still got it as soon as it came out one by one. then got the limited edition set)
Nowhere Boy(untold story of John Lennon)staring Aaron Johnson, Anne-Marie Duff and Kristin Scott Thomas- good movie-it's about the life of john as a kid.It was well done. Sweet. Although a big fan I actually never thought about John's childhood. My reference for him has always been beatles or post beatles. I'd watch this again.
Please Give- staring Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet ,Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall
This is the worst movie I have ever seen!!! people do things in the movie for no reason what so ever. It's about people who sell antiques. They sucker people who's family members have just died into selling all their stuff for cheap then resell it as pricey antiques.
The poignant scene sounds kind of like this
"I found the jeans I like but it's $235"
" Do you like it"
then we'll get it" roll credits and the movie ends!
like for real!!! someone got a budget for that movie!!!
My worst movie marker was Married to Malcom(at least we laughed though this one) "Please Give" beats that by miles! Don't waste your time.
shouldn't complain really got both from the libary for free but it's the waste of time that gets me.

Super 8 - kind of like Stand By Me meets E.T.

Padowan, looking forward to The Hobbit too. They thought about cheapening up on this one, then thought better of it. I think they figured out it's hard to pull the wool over Tolkien fans eyes. Like the actor they picked for Bilbo, but hope I don't have trouble seeing him as Arthur Dent. And no I'm not talking about my goldfish.
Want to see Super 8, but missed it in the theaters, so will have to wait until on one of the cable stations I get.
Going to try to see War Horse this weekend, it's going to be at the little old theater in town.

Ides of March, not so surprising, but with open end (think so).
Sherlock Holmes II , same as the first, that's a pity.
Jonas, german film about an adult man, who has to make his Mittlere Reife at a real Gesamtschule. Very funny and rather authentic, a bit like Feuerzangenbowle.

you're welcomed Zen.
Listening to this masterclass made me feel like going to watch the film, will have to wait one more month for it in France.

ok, went with a friend to see The Iron Lady, it was the biggest dissapointment of the year so far. There was no storyline to the film, no real insight into who the real Margaret Thatcher was, it was just a maby this is what she might be like.. it didant focus on her when she was in government, it was all about heresay of how she met her husband and what she did with her life and how maby she got to the stage in life that she is in now. what gets me is how shit like this can be considered for an award. The acting was mediocer, the storyline was dongg, it was a waste of an evening. The director was playing it safe by not giving a bad picture of the woman, though at sometimes she deserved to be viewed in a bad light. it is fiction and hearsay more than an actual film on Margaret Thatcher, if you like boring, dull, uninteresting, fictional, crappy movies, then this is the one for you.

apparently this opinion was shared by most of my friend having seen it.
J Edgar Hoover - Clint Eastwood

Want to see the Hoover film. Is the message frightening or the film more bad? Mosttime I like deCaprio, when he plays biographies, he's like a camaeleon then, in a good way.

Not a movie I've seen lately, but looking forward to seeing Mirror Mirror - surprised to learn that Phil Collins daughter Lily is playing Snow White, very pretty girl, must take after her mom

Saw "The Descendants"with George Clooney as jealous husband and father in despair. Kind ofNew Realism . One sign: The film ends with father and daughters watching Life of Penguins on tv, eating ice-cream and showing normal family life.
Also a satirical film about egoism while a family member dies.
IMO it's right, that it is nominated for the Oscar.

Loved that film when I saw it years ago. one of the best M Rourke leading role.
The descendants with "Georges" not enthusiastic, good, no more.
