The HFR was certainly the best 3D i had ever seen, and I was all but done with seeing movies in 3D in the first place.  Yes the Hobbit was slow, but LOTR had its moments too.  LOTR had the feeling of urgency throughout that was being forgotten mid Two Towers.  Felt as if we were sitting there all day and the Ents had just said 'Good Morning.' 

My biggest fear is that Star Wars will be re-re-released in HFR and well get yet another rendition of Jar Jar and Boss Nass in our future.

Finally, it is very good to see Hanso and Wiseguy coming together to support the Redskins.  The Seahawks will not know what hit them.

HELLO?  Whosever in charge here at Mania should've had an article posted on this site concerning the death of Gerry Anderson on Dec. 26th!  He was 83.  He was involved with "supermarionation" and was behind such productions including: Supercar, Fireball XLZ, Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, live action productions like UFO as well as argueably his greatest production and one of my favourite sci-fi shows ever...Space 1999!!  The latter of which should've lasted much longer than 2 seasons and if not for bad material of the 2nd season we would've seen not only a 3rd season (a shortened 13 episode season but still the show would've gone on) as well as a spin-off series with the Maya character.  Although he did some other projects, Space 1999 was his last major production.  The quailty of the production designs and FX may seem outdated or even quaint by today's standards, shows like Space 1999 had a realism to it, the production values at least may'd you feel like you were there or at least felt like you could touch it, from the eagles to the Moonbase Alpha itself.  I thank Gerry Anderson for producing some original and interesting concepts for entertainment and will always have a place in genre history.  Mania, if I've missed it (I checked the archives and didn't see any related articles) pardon me, but I think it's inexcusable for a genre site like this which prides itself on bringing genre related news whether it's updates on upcoming movies or the death of anybody significant in the industry to miss out on someone like Gerry Anderson, who was a significant player at the time.  I think he deserves better!

Big tit zombies?  Seriously?

 Big Tit Zombies? is that the one with the old geisha with the zombie lady bits mouth? 

Also I feel bad for the Hobbit, it seems like this might have been a wash.. unless that 222m budget is for all three films. 

Kaziklu 12/31/2012 5:30:54 PM

 nm just realized that is the take not the budget.

 I'm just burned out on the whole Tolkien Middle earth thing from the rings trilogy. So I don't care about seeing The Hobbit. And I got say that l agee that Gandolf sucks as wizards go. Give me a badass fire and lightening shooting wizard and l'm happy.

Saw jango...I don't see the point or message of the movie.  They said the N word a million times.  Long and drawn out.  I think Jamie F is done as an actor, he should just go sing and leave the acting to better people now.  I think I might be with Spike Lee on this one.  And it was not a smart movie like Quinton usually does.   For revenge movies he did much better with Kill Bill.  Even the soundtrack was not interesting, sounded like an Elvis inpersonator. 

Wiseguy 1/2/2013 5:13:50 AM

The point or message? LOL. Do you ask that of all movies? Did you ask that of the Avengers or Kill Bill since you brought it up? How about entertainment, isn't that enough? Not to mention his obvious disdain of slavery and depiction of how brutal it was since it's rarely ever portrayed in film. Obviously you went in with a bias going by your past comments but hey to each their own

We saw LINCOLN for the second time last night. That's my pick for Oscar. I never thought that I woulkd like and appreciate a film to this level that deals so much with the bureaucratic process and back room dealings of congress. But I found the film fascinating. Leave it to Spielberg to pull that off and deepen my admiration for him and Lincoln and of course Thaddeus Stevens. I see nominations for Tommy Lee Jones, Daniel Day Lewis and maybe even Sally Field
