ladyoflorien: what do you see on that far horizon? (Artsy: LOTR - b&w Orlando in NZ)
***SPOILERS: FEW, MOSTLY BROAD DETAILS. IF SPOILERS AND HILARITY ARE YOUR THING, I RECOMMEND Thorin Dreamboatshield: An Unexpected Hotness of Dwarves***

I'm warning you at the outset that this will primarily be a review of the new HFR;RPX technology, the actor's performances, and other filmmaking thoughts of this ilk more so than story line or plot, so if you're not in the mood for cinematography babble you might want to mosey on by.


48FPS? But what does it MEAN? )


All right, you've blithered on about filmmaking long enough, now what about the actual movie? )


Now, about Martin whats-his-name and Richard Dreamboatenshield (and the rest)... )

I can't really give the film a star rating, as I feel so much of my experience was influenced by the 3D HFR;RPX. It's too hard to disambiguate the two. I will say, however, that I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing it on DVD, and at the very least it's a solid 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

In the grand scheme of things Jackson/Tolkien related, I would say, in order from favorite to least favorite, it falls thusly: 1) The Two Towers; 2) Fellowship of the Ring; 3) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey; 4) Return of the King.

I have no idea how long this will be on-line before it's yanked. They made it sound very short term, but given the nature of the internet who knows, right?

THE HOBBIT TRAILER


I have to say, Saph saved the day finding this, as the page on Apple all the official sites were linking to didn't work for many. So, thank you Saph!! You are made of love.



(EEEE, IT ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD!)

Hm. Ike Turner died on Monday. He was 76.

'U2 3D' Film Hits Theaters Next Month. The first live action movie to be shot, edited and shown in 3-D isn't some Spielberg opus. It's U2 3D, a 92-minute concert film set to premiere in select cities on January 25.

Jermaine Dupri Reveals Jackson 5 Reunion. As for whether Michael will be involved, Jermaine said, "He has to be. He is a Jackson." Yeah, but he sure as heck isn't as cute as he was when he was still a boy. Pun intended.

Andrew Bird - stream the entire album The Mysterious Production of Eggs. If you're not familiar with this man yet, then I seriously suggest you get acquainted. He is made of amazing, and YOU SHOULD LOVE HIM TOO!

And on a similar note, check out Scouting For Girls, for they are the cutest cute that ever cuted. Or something. *hugs them tightly* SUCH HAPPY MUSIC!

I'm sure by now everyone has heard about this, but for those who have not I'm going to post some of the more comprehensive articles I ran across. I'll also be giving out a healthy dose of my opinion on this endeavor, so remember you were warned in advance. The Hobbit motion pictures )

You know what movies I never knew were made? "Pretty Woman" redone for both China AND Japan. CAN I PLEASE SEE THE JAPANESE VERSION OF "PRETTY WOMAN"? BECAUSE... THE POSSIBILITIES FOR HYSTERICAL ARE UNENDING! Seriously, this discovery just made my day.

Time's Top 10 of the Year lists. 50 top ten lists, including the top ten movies (Sweeney Todd made #5 on the first list, and Waitress #9!), DVDs, TV series (Pushing Daisies #5!! Eeee!), etc.

And, this is not technically movie news, but USA cancels Dead Zone and 4400. *sigh* I knew The Dead Zone would get canceled soon (poor crazy Anthony Michael Hall), but I'm still sad to see it go. Unpredictable programming schedule and all.

Toshiba Builds 100x Smaller Micro Nuclear Reactor. Environmentally sound? Heck no.
