Saw this today and I have to agree. The quick editing gave me a headache (I don't think a single shot lasted more than 2 seconds) and I'm still not quite sure what the story was about. Is Quantum the new SPECTRE?

The Director's Cut of The Two Towers is much better, imo, than the theatrical release. However, I prefer the theatrical release of Fellowship over the director's cut of it by a lot. I prefer the theatrical release of Return of the King over the director'scut by a little.

I must have missed the first one as well. Razz


Actually, it is a Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) movie. Haven't seen it yet but curious. Pan's Labyrinth is my favorite movie of the past few years...
while it has it's "pans labyrinth" moments(visually *only*), it is nowhere within that league. in fact, a complete disgusting disaster. and i liked the first hellboy...

Tbird-

I thought that it was entertaining and, although I admit that it had some glaring weaknesses, it had some very enjoyable scenes. From a purely visual perspective, it was fantastic. And there were several very humorous moments as well.

I really enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth, mostly because the subject matter was so dark, compelling, and imaginative. Hellboy II could not go as deeply or darkly into the subject matter; too many commercial interests would have been placed at risk.
maybe my expectations were too high, but i was embarrassed for it. but i will easily agree with the 2nd half of your post. Smile

Great movie! One of my all-time favorites. I still remember seeing it as a kid. Love Alec Guiness. Good music too.

I just borrowed the I, Claudius BBC series. We're going to start watching it tonight. Another one I haven't seen in many years.

Interesting. Why do you prefer the theatrical cut of Fellowship over the Director's Cut? I thought the Director's Cut fills out a few sections that got shortchanged in the theatrical version.

del Toro is doing the Hobbit next year and he better not screw it up. Wish PJ would just do it all.
