I hope it has cgi orcs in it.  Wouldn't that be great?

That does look good, but I'm not too thrilled about the addition of "Tauriel." Like UrL said, I don't mind minor changes from the original book, but I don't really see the need to create a whole new character. I'm even less pleased about her being there since she'll apparently be involved in a romance arc that wasn't present in the book. I like love stories sometimes, but I don't want it in The Hobbit.

On the LOTR wiki:

"Peter Jackson has confirmed that she will have no romantic connection to Legolas. However, it is hinted that there will be romance between Tauriel and Kili the dwarf."

Umm... that's not weird at all.  wtf?

I'm not too worried about this new character though. The adaptation of The Fellowship of the Ring introduced "Lurtz", and his inclusion made the death of Boromir much better than how it played out in the book. Things could turn out similar for TDoS.

And speaking of which... (Hobbit spoilers below, for those who haven't read it)

I wouldn't have spoilered it if we were in a book thread. But since this is a film thread, I was being nice.

They really should have done just two movies. First one was too stretched, too long fight scenes. But I'm not sure if it were better with or without additional storylines though.

To me it bothers if a movie does things differently, even though I know it can't be exactly same as in book. Especially in Harry Potter films some aspects bothered me.

I don't mind doing things differently... but cutting up The Hobbit like they've done screams "Hello, we're making money here.... can't let go!" big grin

The Hobbit (1977)

This movie was great.  It's animated and fucking awesome.  For those that don't know:

I didn't think that version was so great. A valiant effort, but not executed well. The animation and voice acting was really awkward, I even thought so when I saw it as a kid.

I saw it with a huge LOTR fan who was so upset that I thought he was going to have a coronary!

In her defence, she was the only funny cast member on Saturday Night Live when she was on.

Not quire sure where to post this.

Save the Cat! -- The 2005 screenwriting book that’s taken over Hollywood—and made every movie feel the same.

"If you’ve gone to the movies recently, you may have felt a strangely familiar feeling: You’ve seen this movie before. Not this exact movie, but some of these exact story beats: the hero dressed down by his mentor in the first 15 minutes (Star Trek Into Darkness, Battleship); the villain who gets caught on purpose (The Dark Knight, The Avengers, Skyfall, Star Trek Into Darkness); the moment of hopelessness and disarray a half-hour before the movie ends (Olympus Has Fallen, Oblivion, 21 Jump Street, Fast & Furious 6)."

Ok this is clearly something you and I need to walk away from because all of what you said is just wrong something I highly disagree with.

More confirmation on the Superman + Batman movie:



^ I haven't watched that yet but I'm really interested as to how a Superman + Batman movie would play out. It's an interesting combination.

Well, I suppose some of the guys can be funny as well.  But most of Saturday Night Live is merely an anti-thesis of what funny is.  In particularly Seth Meyer is incredibly unfunny.

I thought he was funny with Amy Poehler on Weekend Update. But yeah on his own he's not that great and I'm deeply unimpressed with making him the new Late Night host. Like I get it Lorne Michaels, you want to keep everything at NBC within the family. So let's not hire one of your funny women or John Mulaney, let's hire someone who does a weak version of The Daily Show every Saturday night.

So today I saw This is The End (I know this is the upcoming films thread, I'm getting to that!) and the first trailer was for The World's End. It made me so happy, but it also kinda ruined the movie I was actually there to see because I just kept thinking about how I can't wait for The World's End to come out on Thursday.

I saw The World's End last Tuesday, it was great & funny, but it's easily my least favourite of The Blood & Ice Cream Trilogy.

I'm taking one of my nieces to see it.  She loves the Percy Jackson books.  I saw the new Wolverine movie last night and it had a longer preview about Sea of Monsters and looks like they really upped the special effects for this one.

I have read those books, but I haven't seen the first movie and won't watch this one either. One reason is; movies are usually little disappointing after reading the books.

I'm looking forward to Sea of Monsters, too, but a little wary of it since I thought the first movie was a quite disappointment. I know QNF's right and that it's normal for the movie version to seem a bit lackluster when compared to the book, but The Lightning Thief's movie adaption was more of a letdown than usual.

However, I'm going to go in optimistically and with an open-mind since hopefully some of the issues with the first movie were improved upon.  smile

Maybe y'all knew this already, but it was news to me:

James Cameron plans out an 'Avatar' movie quadrilogy

"Avatar 2 is due out in December 2016, with Avatar 3 coming in December 2017 and Avatar 4 tentatively releasing December 2018."

I thought the storyline in Avatar was lame and mind-numbingly predictable, but by far the worst aspect was the stereotyping: it was cringe inducing.  If I had been chained to the sofa watching it, I would have gnawed off my own leg to escape.

But the cinematography was great and the visual impact was terrific.   I might buy it some day, but only if there's a language option for the soundtrack without any dialog.

I for one look forward to the sequels. Incidentally, I kinda knew that was going to happen. Courtesy of IMDB for the rumors. >.>

I pretty much agree with Tachyon regarding Avatar. It looked lovely and the action was cool, but the plot and characters were awful.

As the YouTube channel CinemaSins put it:


"The only way this character could be more cliche is if he wore a t-shirt saying 'I'm this movie's bad guy.'"

Avatar is the most overrated film I have ever seen (to date), nothing special going on it for me.

Also, Avatar and Aliens are the same goddamn movie.
