Has anyone seen the Pirate Bay documentary? I really enjoyed it, I love those guys. The documentary builds well and brings up good discussions. You can download it for free (ofc) on their website.

Night of the Hunter is visually stunning. Here are some of my favorite shots.

I really enjoyed it. The dramatic shift in tone after the children escape by the river makes it even more interesting. The movie becomes very fairytale-like and the imagery becomes more vivid and dreamy where as the first half of the is much darker. The child acting isn't the best but I would say it adds to the tone of it.

Some other shots I love.

finally saw the hobbit and django unchained.

i went into the hobbit with the lowest expectations but the movie is actually ok, its just that half the scenes and so is the 3d most of the time haha.

django was very entertaining, some good zingy dialog (waltz gets all the funniest lines tho) and tons of spaghetti western refs. last act kinda didn't need to be there but i guess its understandable that tarantino would want to let foxx kick some ass on his own after waltz steals the show for most of the movie. also understand how some ppl might take issue w/ the combination of slapstick humor, normal western shooouts and "transgressive" violence. the scene where the slave is torn apart by the dogs was def disturbing and memorable.

I haven't seen The Hobbit and am unsure whether to bother, how does it compare with LotR?

Yeah figured as much. I like the scale in LotR with the epicnesess of the battles and fate of humanity at stake, Hobbit just seems like a few random dudes going on a jolly day out.

They tried to throw that in there too, but it's very obviously just glued on to the actual plot, which has nothing to do with them. For example, while the titular Hobbit and his pals are hanging out Gandalf has a DARK and FORBODING talk with some other people about events which are unrelated to anything happening until the actual Lord of the Rings story comes around. Lazy.

I have the same gripes, the overuse of cgi being the worst. I still recomend it if you are a fan of the Lotr movies.

Well it's still definitely worth watching, the environments are pretty even if CGI.
And I don't think it's a bad thing they include scenes that weren't in the book. I always wondered what was all the fuss with the necromancer about as it was only mentioned (afair) in the Hobbit and I haven't read anything apart from LotR, Hobbit and Silmarilion.
