@tsarstepan,
No, I don't think so. I'll check, tsar.
Perhaps this is a conspiracy & I should take this personally!!!!!

(Using lots of !!!! in the absence of .. )

Anyway, films ...

Sorry for the distraction.

@Region Philbis,
After reading Tolkien, I just couldnt get into the movies (especially since they didnt include THE HOBBIT)

Scenery was outstanding CGI was great but, like the newest remake of King Kong, once you remove all the googaws, whatya got? a lonely monkey.
I generally dont like the extreme CGI movies. Using the Dave Barry system
"The worth of a movie is inversely proportional to the number of helicopters or mythical beasts"

@farmerman,

i don't think he over-did the CGI in LOTR.
for example, legolas is an acrobat, but you only see it 2 or 3 times.
jackson mainly used it to for the many battle scenes and bizarre critters...

@farmerman,
Pollock is the best movie depicting the life of a painter I can recall seeing. Ed Harris should have won the Oscar for Best Actor and Best Director that year.

Burn After Reading is such an underrated comedy that it deserves so much more attention in from a year filled with too many overclocked in the hype department films.

@djjd62,
I'm particularly happy to see the love for Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second as well as Satoshi Kon's masterpiece Tokyo Godfathers.

The Host is a great monster film and I'm glad that Hollywood ditched their remake plans. And even though, I haven't read any Potter books, the movies were indeed worth the hype... roller coaster rides indeed!
