Just got done seeing Interstellar. I didn't like it. At all. There are some parts with some pretty cool, original special effects and the performances are all pretty good. That said, it was way too long, the science was ridiculous (bordering on comically nonsensical), and it was just plain boring a lot of the time. I'm sure some people will love it and think that it's really deep, but, to me, it was largely nonsense wrapped in several layers of pretension. It was wholly original though.
Did you like The Prestige?
Jackson and del Toro you magnificent bastards! I can't wait to see these.
Once that comes out on BluRay, I'm sitting down and marathoning all the Extended Editions of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies. That'll take at least an extended weekend, I'd imagine.
Yeesh. I did that with just the LOTR extended editions a few years back. I was pretty fried by the middle of Return of the King.
Keep in mind I'm an experienced marathoner of media for the various timelines I do. I spend a good 3 days a week after work watching (usually 3-5 hours at a time) or reading media related to the various timelines I do. Occasionally I might even spend a lazy Sunday afternoon doing so if the weather is lousy and me and the gf don't have plans.
I can marathon with the best of them, lol. But even I would need to stretch it out across 3 days, a couple per day (even that would be a good 6-7 hours). Yeesh.
Someone told me that JK Rowling said this would be five films long?
Just got back from seeing "Hacksaw Ridge." This was an amazing movie. Say what you may about Mel Gibson. But the man known how to make movies. This is exactly the kind of movie we need making it's rounds in this day and age. If you're not a fan of gory war flicks. You might want to pass on this. They don't hold back. But, it is a truly inspirational movie. So you might want to give it a thought before you decide.
Yeah, I'm interested in seeing it, but I've heard it's more gory than any war film ever made. I'm not sure I can handle that.
