    The book being written by Bilbo is how Tolkien later justified the patronising narrator. That's also how Peter Jackson justifies the difference between the two ring finding scenes in LOTR and AUJ.

    I haven't seen the newer movie but am told it is much closer to the book than the previous one.

    Saw The Hobbit in HFR 3D just before Christmas. Although it takes a bit of getting used to I really enjoyed the feel it gave; it did look a little bit fake at first, though I read someone compare it to being inside a diorama and that is spot on.

    Thanks a lot, you just gave me a belated Christmas present. I've heard about the manga a few years ago but couldn't find a copy anywhere (local bookstores don't have a lot of japanese media), so eventually I gave up searching. There's really no reason not to buy it for this price though.

    The Grey: I have nothing inherently against the "Liam Neeson: Badass" genre, but I take deep chagrin to a film positing itself within that holy pantheon and failing to deliver. The Grey is a horror film. The location shots are gorgeous, but the script and characterization are hollow and [spoiler] you never do see Neeson bottle-punch a wolf.[/spoiler] I feel like this would have played out better as a survival movie a-la Touching the Void or 127 Hours, but the horror elements stand as a metaphor for the hostility of the Alaskan Tundra and way-side the far more real and pressing dangers of, you know, below-zero temperatures and a persistent lack of food. Besides Neeson, none of the characters are developed nor likeable enough to root for, so we're left with two hours of a pack of jackasses making questionable decisions about their survival.

    The Grey's trailer seemed to give the impression it was about Liam crashing and becoming the beast itself to survive but the actual movie is nothing like that. It's like Final Destination on the arctic.

    Dredd today. I think I'm gonna watch it again. Just can't get enough of it, I guess. The pacing's a bit slower than I expected for an action movie but thankfully this movie doesn't devolve into having something unnecessary like romance, origin stories or all that bullshit, which I appreciate.

    Had a few friends round yesterday for a film and fun day. The fun was a board game (Where's Moldova? or something) and a card game (Cards Against Humanity) but the films were Easy A, which I've discussed before and said that it was a highly enjoyable film, whilst the first was Death Proof.

    I had heard a lot about it, that it wasn't too good or whatever. Whilst I don't think it's as good as the other Grindhouse film Planet Terror, a film which sits high up on my favourites list, I thought it was still really good. The dialogue was great, the characterisation was utterly amazing and the attention to detail was obviously Tarantino. I liked everything about it, really. Especially the music. But especially Kim. If you've seen the film, you'll know why. YouTube fails to offer up sufficiently excellent clips justifying that.

    For what it's worth, they turned it into an anime series. I'm not sure if you could make a good film out of the source material, considering how many characters and plot threads there are. You'd lose most of the aspects that make it so special.

    Interesting i need to see that one, i just need one hint. I started reading manga today and its very interesting,but i'm so curious to see if the main villain is trully a monster or just a human who kill,provide me the answer and i will make you rich!

    Possession (1981): And here I thought The Holy Mountain would be the strangest movie I'd ever watch.

    Great soundtrack.

    Watched Killing them softly as Pete Bradshaw of the Guardian gave it a positive in his films of the year. Not a bad film by any stretch, but hampered a bit I feel by the casting of Ray Liotta & James Gandolfini in atypical underworld roles as side characters. Albeit both played very different characters from those in Goodfellas & The Sopranos it's hard not to constantly see them as Henry Hill or Tony Soprano in truth. However don't let that put you off an otherwise engaging and visually stylish examination of organized crime during the recession.

    Django Unchained is exactly what you'd expect from a Tarantino movie; I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Tarantino, westerns or action flicks.

    Also, Katt Williams is a fuckin' idiot.
