It's the Mt. Everest of film adaptations that calls for characters in the double digits to have fully fleshed out arcs, battles that are unparralled in scope and Jackson emphatically stuck the landing. Even if it's not your cup of tea, if you're a more than casual film fan one can look at it objectively and recognize that it's an achievement within the medium.

But I hear ya; it's not as if we're talking about classics like "Event Horizon" "The Phantom Menace" or "The Dark Knight Rises".

Not at all. I personally think I was too young to really appreciate them when I first saw them all. I've been meaning to give them all are-watch but it just feels like it's going to be such a chore.

I've tried watching all 3 extended editions in one day but I physically couldn't do it. (could only finish the first two) I obviously love'em but it tested my movie watching endurance. With that said; the extended versions are the only versions in my eyes.

Halloween: Trick or Treat -- 7.5/10; This is a highly entertaining documentary produced by a Christian organization to besmirch the holiday of Halloween by associating it with Satanism and general crime. But they don't stop there, aiming to bring down producers of costumes and horror movies.

Expendables 2 - Damn, what a great opening scene that was. Am I right, or what? That opening scene was spectacular. Too bad the rest of the film sucked. Seriously, what the hell to they think we want from this franchise? Apparently, what they think we want, is a bunch of old dogs giving us ridiculous, expository dialogue, with two big action set-pieces bookmarking it all. Fuck all that. I want the same goddamn action you gave us, in the opening ten minutes of the film, to last throughout.

What I don't want, is a script that was written by a twelve year-old, being expanded on by a bunch of sentimental old men. This film had one fucking job, and that was to entertain me in all of it's 80's "action movie" glory, and what I got was a confused narrative, that asks me to care about what I'm seeing. Did John Matrix ask that? I didn't fucking think so. This franchise is just WAY too high on itself.

Look, all we want, are some 80's era badasses, kicking the ever living shit out of bad guys. That's it. I don't care about the depth of the bad guy's greed. Just show him being greedy, and kill him. That's all I ask.

Disappoited again.

6/10.

Five of those points are for the opening scene alone. The rest is a bunch of garbage.

The Hole (2009) - Definitely captured 80s movies vibe like The Gate and Monster Squad, though the story lacked substance at points. - 6.5/10

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - Began as a hilarious off-beat comedy before transitioning into a romantic dramady. I had no problems with it, as the story mostly continued in logical fashion, and Steve Carell and Keira Knightly had an excellent rapport. But I could understand how some peeps might be put off by the second half of the film. - 8.5/10

I see your points.
Thankfully, I missed it in theater. Maybe a re-run on Blu-ray, we will see.

You seem a pretty reasonable guy with this statement...

Argo - 9/10

Affleck continues his very solid directing career with this one. I knew the story and how everything turned out, but that didn't stop the nail biting tension he created with this one. Solid acting from the whole cast, an intriguing true story and spot on direction all come together in one of my favorite films this year.

Great film! One of my top 10 movies of the year. Ben Affleck is a skilled director. Three times out of three he has struck gold.

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970)

**** out of ****

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)
