Good day,

 

Regarding the "The Hobbit" by Peter Jackson, I saw trailer for the upcoming last one, and it seem Gandalf died in that part.

 

He can't die, the Hobbit is set before the LOTR :P

lol .. Dave :)

 

I really like the 2 movies of the "The Hobbit" and I really see Peter Jackson doing great job as he did with LOTR.

 

Seems my youngest son like adv. titles as I do, hoping to more coming from these type.

 

/me back to fighting with freebsd and I wish I kick Luke for sending me back to dark lord .. oops, dark world :)

I fall asleep far too often during a film... Mainly because I find it difficult to get to sleep without some kind of noise in the background. So 99% of the time I put a movie on to watch, often I get no more than a 20-30 mins in before I doze off... Once the movie ends, the screensaver kicks in after a minute, and the TV will shut down shortly afterwards. So there's nothing to keep me awake and I don't have the sound up loud, often just the subtitles (if I've got them).

 

Sometimes It will take me several days to watch a film because I keep getting partway through before I fall asleep... I have dozens and dozens of movies that I've seen the first half 20 times, and the end of it... perhaps twice.   :)

 

This is why my traktv history is littered with crappy films at odd times of the night, I only put on films that I've seen before if I know I've going to try and sleep.

Watched "Blue Ruin" Today.... Well acted, great script and good use of suspense in this Thriller.  Quite a deep movie but a nice pace.

 

found it a thoroughly good watch.

Red alert! "Into the storm" is really terrible.

The only character development in the whole film Happens for no reason, and there is no reason behind why tornados are destroying everything in thief path... Which is the plot of the entire movie.

OMG, Now that I think about it, there is no reason the events happening in the movie even have purpose.

On a side note, the movie "Harry Brown" is an absolutely fantastic film.

I still need to watch it, looks like the CGI is the story line.

 

and yes Harry Brown is Ace.... A pensioner sorts out his neighbourhood ;)

The CGI is quite spectacular, it puts Twister to shame, but Twister has better acting . Haha...

Loved the film Harry Brown. It has been one of the few films over the last 5-6 years that lived up to or surpassed my expectations on essentially every level.

Harry Brown is utterly brutal and relentless.  It is a great film but I do find its totally unforgiving representation of urabn youth slightly disturbing.  Thats why I will see you your Harry Brown and raise youa na Attack the Block.  While it has equally scummy inner city kids they are at least goven the chance at character growth and redemption.  I even like the lofi aliens.

Yeah Hercules was pretty terrible, I mean I watched it and was moderately entertained, but it wasn't good :P

 

Going to watch Automata later today which looks like a ripoff of I, Robot, but still looks decent, anyone seen that yet?
