Fifty days until Catching Fire! The first movie was....pretty good, but nowhere near as good as the book. Catching Fire is my favorite book in the series, so I'm really hoping they serve it justice.

Not sure what to think about a second Hobbit movie. It looks good, but looks can be deceiving, so I'm hoping it's good, but I don't want to get too excited.

People are really saying that "I, Frankenstein" looks shitty, I've not seen the trailer yet, but the name sounds pretty off.  Any Frankenstein movie that makes me think of "I, Robot" is doing something wrong.  What do you guys think?

I saw the trailer for it today and I think that it could be good but I don't know.  The actual pot wasn't established but to me it looked like a heaven against hell type of movie.  I saw a lot of characters switching from what looked like Angels and Demons into humans.

Really? I thought it did. Not earth-shattering or anything, and rather unnecessary, but not a bad piece of diversion. Visually, it looked impressive enough, was what I meant.

The internet has bred a whole generation of hyper-critical cynics for whom nothing is good enough and wonder no longer exists. Opening the floodgates for the instant airing of nit-picks and lofty analyses by people who have never made a film, written a story, or done anything even remotely creative of their own has served to destroy what was once such an innocent and delightful diversion.

Yes it was Unreal.  I posted a link for the trailer about 11 days ago.  The post is just above your post of the Lego movie trailer.

Exactly in what ways has it served to destroy it, beyond annoying you slightly? tongue

You know what was really responsible for the massive increase in cynical criticism of media? The creation of a middle class.

Well my annoyance ruins everything for everybody, doesn't it? If I'm annoyed, then everybody else must be as well. How can every person on Earth not experience the same emotions as myself at the same time as I am?

But also, movie-going is no longer a magical experience. There's no wonderment of expectation any more. Hell, films are being torn to shreds before they've even been released. We hate them before we've seen them. And there are no longer classic cultural helicons like the original Star Wars or Casablanca or The Wizard of Oz - anything with the potential to be a lasting hallmark is compacted in the meta-mincer of the net, reduced to memes and parodies and ridicule so quickly as to drain all ethos, pathos and joy from the thing itself. Eaten up and purged through over-exposure.

middle class.

I don't even really know what that is. The rich are so rich that the differences between everybody else are so negligible as to be irrelevant. I mean, some people are actually able to buy and own entire houses. It's almost impossible to conceive of it, actually owning a building in the way that normal people own an item of clothing. There's upper-class, and then there's everybody else.

Owning anything is a ridiculously silly and abstract thought.

I'd actually agree with coldangel here.  It may not all be the internet's fault, but the internet certainly has a role to play in it.  There are so many people now, so many things being produced at the same time, so many choices out there that the individuals being inundated with information have to be skeptical and discerning about what kinds of media they're consuming because they can't conceivably consume it all.  That's why critics are a real job, and it's why memes and random jokes make sense.

The problem I would say isn't the internet though.  The problem, as I see it, is the mass induction of information whole sale (whether the information is valuable or not) being force fed through tubes to the masses.  There's almost no room for peace or rationality on the scale that we're talking about.  It's no wonder that 200 years ago, people living where my country now stands fought with their lives over a small percent tax increase on paper goods, and today nobody can grab pitchforks and attack governing bodies who sanction taxes much higher on food... and don't get started on taxes on income... or the fact that we have police bodies going into people's houses, shooting their dogs, and arresting them without reasonable suspicion... or that the government finds it reasonable to regulate what goes in or out of my body. roll eyes

Basically I think society's fucked. smile

I just force myself to believe that society is perfectly fine, and that there's nothing wrong with it or America's government at all.
Of course, in reality, I think that we're living in one of the most distopian eras ever,as shown by how obviously our 'Controlled by the People'  Government rules over us, how many poisons said government allows us to consume, how many obviously one-sided controversies and laws there are, how many potentially dangerous medications and shots they force upon infants, and how many Policemen can get away with whatever the hell they want.

Anyway, that's just my thought on that. Sorry for going off-topic.

I thought I'd seen this posted on Peel already, but I can't locate it. So...

Lucasfilm announced Thursday that the next Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode VII, will open in theaters Dec. 18, 2015

Yeah, I think they're explaining how Saruman becomes corrupted into Count Dooku.

That'd make a neat crossover, actually.

So... does that mean that Tim Burton is going to direct the next Star Wars film?

It'll be Batman and Robin all over again.
