btw, not just "one of the Riders", King Theoden's nephew and heir.

Tsk tsk. I think a few scripture lessons are in order.

Peter Fucking Jackson needed some scripture lessons. These films are an abomination.

I can't tell you how happy I was that he skipped the entire first half of the first book, including Tom fuckin' Bombadil, because it was boring and tedious as shit to read.

No true fan would ever say that. I can understand choosing leaving some things out for time constraints, but that creates plot gaps. His attempts at restitching the plot were ludicrous.

Remember the barrows after they left Bombadil - that's where they get their weapons.

RE: Rate the Last Film You've Seen
Well yippee, today I saw my first 3D movie.

It reminded me of those old 3D cards we used to get on cereal packets.

This was 'punishment' for taking my flatmate to Les Mis - which she hated, having no prior knowledge of book or musical (whereas, me.... singing every word and crying like a girl from the opening scene).

I said she could pick the next pic.

I went in blind... no idea what I was going to see.

Lots of perfume ads... bad omen... gonna be a chick flick.

Review: Jack the Giant Slayer.

Not even heard about this movie before.

Excellent largely Brit cast (a semi-reunion of the Trainspotting ensemble) plus the immediately recognisable voice of Bill Nighy as the chief ogre.

Oddly, in a reversal of the Hollywood tradition, an American played the baddie.

All in all, a very enjoyable tongue-in-cheek romp-com ©.


My friend loved it and here's what I find remarkable... she had no prior inkling of the old fairy tale on which the film was based. Same with the Snow White movie recently.

I just can't get my head around that kinda thing.


No
