 I haven't read any Tolkien books. Loved The Lord of the rings films. I own the extended versions and have watched them multiple times. However , I didn't like the hobbit film. So it's not just critics. I hope the next one gets me excited by middle earth again .

 The Hobbit was amazing!  Wonderful!  I felt that it did live up to the standard of the earlier LOTR films.  Sure, the beginning was a bit slow but it was the setup for a grand series of adventures, including LOTR.  It was by far from a letdown for me in any way and as far as I'M concerned this is all that matters.  Pacific Rim is def the one I look most forward too, although the robots don't look all that exciting.  I'm in more anticipatory for the monsters.

 48 FPS is like watching a magician work from over his shoulder....

No KD you're wrong, it isn't to each their own...Superman is fantasy no question about it. Yeah a lot of the mythos has science fiction but he himself and his powers are pure fantasy. The only one that can even remotely be considered some sort of sci/fi may be his strength

Wise, believe whatever you like but for you to say I'm wrong would have to depend on what you define as "fantasy " and "science-fiction."  An example of "fantasy" is fiction that stays away from things like science themes found in science fiction and would be things like magic, monsters, structures, fireballs, and lightning being created out of thin air.  "Science-fiction" is defined overall as being a genre of fiction with imaginative but more or less plausible content.  I would add that that would entail science related things and happenings that we've yet to fully understand.  To me, if there's any "fantasy" element among Superman's ablilities it would be his ablility to fly.

What about Willow, the 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu Ray in March?

This "fantasy" arguement is all based in semantics.  In terms of art and/or entertainment there seems to be a defining quality behind fantasy.  I really wouldn't consider Superman as falling into that realm but that is how I see it.  If that's true, anything that goes beyond the norm not based on a twist or extension of scientific logic could be considered fantasy.  The Exorcist?  Fantasy.  Indiana Jones?  Fantasy.  It really is a very subjective matter and almost pointless to argue over.  One man's fantasy is another man's horror and all that jazz.

I mentioned the Willow bluray (especially for those of us who love that movie) as another fantasy film that we'll have to "tide us over" until the next Hobbit movie.
