    I for one, welcome our new Disney overlords, they are strong in the force (which is to say they know how to hire competent writers and directors).

    I'm watching The Two Towers right now (finished FOTR this a.m.), getting pumped for The Hobbit in a couple hours...!

    Re: more Star Wars

    For those that may not have already heard, Star Wars: episode VII is planned for 2015:

    Disney buying Lucasfilm, will release new 'Star Wars' movie in 2015 - Business on NBCNews.com
    There is one thing that worries me about this... Star Wars on Ice anyone?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Not only that, but it's because of Jar Jar that the whole war started!

    Looking forward to hearing what you thought of it!

    The LOTR trilogy films are among my all-time favorites, so I'm very much looking forward to seeing The Hobbit movies, too, but will most likely wait for the blu-ray releases because it's an 80 mile round trip to the nearest cinema for me, plus I really prefer seeing them from home anyway. My guess is that they will be very good, but not really a match for the LOTR films.

    I was considering skipping on Total Recall but have read a number of good reviews on it so plan to see it after all.

    whoa, that's a haul. now i understand your penchant for blue-ray!

    IMO, your prediction is correct. But a loftier goal (that of rivaling the LOTR flicks) would be hard to imagine. I won't say much for now, plus it probably deserves a 2nd viewing, but the scenes with Gollum were top-notch (equal parts gruesomeness, pity, and hilarity). And the dwarves are great characters (I personally most like Bofur, partly b/c of his hat and partly b/c he looks a lot like Dave Grohl).

    Did the theater where you saw it have the '48 frames per second' version?

    I've heard some good stuff about it but was just wondering about your thoughts on it?

    wow, you're right...that was a pivotal moment. Epic Fail, Qui-gon. i'm just baffled that the same guy who unleashed Darth Maul on the world also green-lighted that goofy Jamaico-Alien bastard.

    Good question. I had heard some bad things about HFR before the movie came out. I don't remember what that was now, and I didn't delve into the details, I just told myself that I didn't want to take a chance on something I'd never experienced before on something as important (to me) as The Hobbit. So I opted for old school frame rate. I will probably go for the HFR upon my 2nd viewing.
