I think The Two Towers were my least favourite of the three. I don't know, maybe I felt it's just too long winded or too boring. The Return of The King was my most favourite, on the other hand.
Speaking of Tolkien and Peter Jackson, The Hobbit's coming out in November, iirc. Haven't watched the trailer, though

Bugger Krull, and bugger that bladed starfish. All that work for what turned out to be nothing more than a novelty fingernail cleaner.

Just saw new Batman in cinema,mixed feelings. It was way to long,it kinda dragged a little bit in certain places,that twist at the end that Bane is not in charge of operation was stupid,also love romance with catwoman was not fitting..There are few other things that bothered me,overall i would give 7 to the movie.

It's not like it's a last minute surprise crowbarred in: Bankrupting Bruce and having him trust his assets to Talia would have been the only way to find the reactor (Batsy certainly wouldn't talk under torture), but the only excuse for Talia to be involved at all would be because she's in fact leading the operation... or is just another one of Bane's psycho mercenaries. It's a web, Talia has an established involvement from the beginning, and it's impossible to remove her without changing the entire story.
I agree the catwoman romance was very displaced though. He sure got over the other one quickly.

Dark Knight spoilers:
It's crowbarred in, in the sense that she doesn't affect the plot at all, apart from adding a minor sense of betrayal. Normally in films, twists occur either a lot earlier, or they're accompanied with something that makes the situation far worse. In this case, all that happens is that Batman gets stabbed (Which he shrugs off pretty much instantly) and then she crashes the truck before dying. She provided the motivation for the plot, sure, but I feel the film would have been no different if she had simply been an ally of Batman. It would have also meant that Bane would have got the ending/death that he fucking deserved, rather than being relegated to a thug with one of the worst deaths in the film.

I do think the twist was good but it did make Bane's chaarcter muddled a little bit because all you heard about him was wrong which meant you didn't at=ctually know who he was and if he was telling the truth or not that he was born in the prison. I think you could of had the whole movie be the same and not of had that twist.

>tells Bruce Wayne he saw the light of the day for the first time as an adult
>Bruce thinks he's the kid that escaped
It's my favourite of the trilogy - not as dull as Begins and not as full of idiotic coincidences and plot holes as TDKR. Plus Nolan learned to shoot fights! I wish the Gotham under siege part was longer.

Chalk up another movie to my fell-asleep-while-watching list. This time it was Dream House, chosen by the lady because of Daniel's Craig's shirtlessness. I made it to the big reveal and then I was out like a light. Perhaps I'm just getting too old; falling asleep on the couch at 8:30 pm is becoming far too common to simply be explained away by bad movies.

I few days ago I watched "Bugsy". Occasionally it was fantastic, but for some reason it left an overall impression of being incredibly "meh".

I can't dispute the physics of missiles there, Ravelle, but considering they play a bit fast and loose with those things, we can probably chalk it up as a death. Who knows?
Watched Whip It yesterday. Thought it was all good fun, definitely amusing. Didn't think too much to the romance sub-plot, but it played its part in a way. I do wonder if interest in roller derby increased when it came out.

Its definitely a weirder film then you might expect...I don't know if i truly call it a horror but it definitly has a creepy atmosphere and Jack Nicholson is great in it...I do have to say though it has the most WTF ending Kubrick has done since 2001 a Space odyssey
