Had to comment: I've watched it maybe a dozen times over the years. I'll never forget my first time, when the zither came on the screen, then the strings started to vibrate and play the theme song. I was hooked for life.

We showed it to some new friends about 3 years ago. They kept falling asleep and couldn't understand why we thought it was a great movie. We're no longer friends.
Been trying to get through "The Hobbit." Started twice on flights but couldn't make it. Is it worth trying a third time in the creature comforts of my basement? Love the Lord of the Rings trilogy so am expecting I will like this if I get through it

In the meantime, recently saw "Kick Ass." Fantastically funny flick brought to a new level by the performance of "Hit Girl"

First I don't think on a plane is the right way to see The Hobbit, think of seeing LOTR's that way. However, I really think, when all three come out, it calls for new type of director's cut where it's reduced down instead of expanded. It should never have been done as an 8+ hour three movie release.

The same could be done for the Star Wars Ep. 1-3. For example, digitally remove all references to Jar Jar Binks, and you have a much better movie.

And you may know many fans have done exactly that and made their own cut of the first 1-3 episodes.
Entertaining and good but falls way short of great. They try to do some character development stuff with Stark that falls pretty flat. If you are a fan of the comics you will HATE what they do to the Mandarin. Good action sequences and the requisite super hero humor stuff.

Nope. But Blancanieves got exceptional reviews, The Company You Keep got very mixed reviews.


Well, wife did not want to see Blancanieves, so went to see The Company You Keep. Meh... good acting (great, at times), fun to see all the old actors trotted out for a bow, but totally unbelievable.
