    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

    TORn is also saying its of 99% certainty that Del Toro is doing it. This is a relief for me as I am a huge Del Toro fan. The second place guy on my list was Alfonso Cuaron. While I like Raimi too he just doesn't suit this project to me at all. Faith in Hobbit restored. :) Can't wait to watch...

    Heath Ledger: RIP

    R.I.P. A fine actor. I only hope they finished the bulk of his ADR work on The Dark Knight.

    Beowulf discussion

    I thought the trailer was awesome, but as for the CG itself....I'm not so sure. I think maybe if it was more intentionally CG and less trying-to-be-realistic it might leave a better taste in my mouth. A perfect example is Blizzard's cinematics...similar style of CG but less realistic and it...

    Frank Miller's 300 (merged)

    That was my biggest beef too. There was some potential for some "band of brothers" type stuff which would have been great, but it felt like they gave priority to cutting back to Sparta for the politics stuff. Overall I loved the movie though, and I really hope there's an extended cut of some...

    300 - reviews

    First of all let me just say this movie is amazing to look at. I love the style. Almost every shot is a work of art in itself. This is one film that wholly benefits from being entirely green-screened - it was required to get the look across, and it worked very well. Second the sound design is...

    Frank Miller's 300 (merged)

    Things sure have changed over at Rotten Tomatoes. It's sitting at 58% right now. nooooooo!!! There's still only a couple reviews in though and not a large enough sample. I don't let reviews decide what movie I see, but at the very least they can dehype me a bit which is sometimes a good thing.

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

    Yeah I just saw the Variety article which has my hopes up a bit. I hope it works out in the end. Come on MGM, it's your turn to be the good guy. Looks like New Line could only do that once.

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

    I've been kind of depressed all day because of this news. Add me to the list of someone who won't support these films if they aren't made by PJ and Weta. That means a full boycott. I always respected New Line because of their original decision to fund the trilogy, what happened to them? Surely...

    XBOX360 HD DVD external drive now official for November

    The earliest ICT would be invoked is, what, 2010? Microsoft knows they'll be releasing their third Xbox that year so I doubt they're too worried. However it's entirely possible they'll release a HDMI cable but if they don't it looks like 1080p output over VGA and Component.

    LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy Discussion Thread

    The Hobbit will happen, it's only a question of when. But Ian McKellan isn't getting any younger. I don't think I'd want to see The Hobbit without him. Smaug is just the thing to raise the visual effects bar even higher. Higher than Kong or Gollum. I'm sure Weta could outdo themselves. I...

    DVD Review HTF MINI-REVIEW: The Lord of The Rings Trilogy: Limited Edition

    For people on the fence about buying these for the documentaries alone...let me offer my opinion. Long time HTF readers will know I am a die-hard LOTR fanboy. I've spent amounts of money on merchandise that would make you sick. I purchased these STRICTLY for the documentaries. That said...

    DVD Review HTF MINI-REVIEW: The Lord of The Rings Trilogy: Limited Edition

    As a fanboy of LOTR, I gotta buy them for the new docs. I already own 21 LOTR discs, what's another 6? I mean really. :)

    When will the price of Blu-Ray hardware start to drop?

    I think you will see individual retailers start giving discounts early in the new year, maybe even during the holidays...but don't expect anything substantial for at least a year or more. I also expect there to be a 2:1 price difference between BD and HD-DVD for quite some time, unless the BD...

    HOLY FLIRKING SCHMIDT! New Lord of the Rings releases!

    Looks like New Line made some cuts to the Botes docs. http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,...4a1860,00.html It appears to be nothing significant but he doesn't seem to pleased with the situation. I can understand why NL wouldn't want to pay royalties for a song in a documentary. But as for...
