While I use RT to make sure movies are below 20% I really don't care once they get much higher then at. If a movie sits at 30% or 85% I may like it. I really only agree with their bottom 20% or less. otherwise personal taste kicks in, and people will like whatever.

I liked LOTR movies a lot, but don't see any reason this is a trilogy. I will probably see it at some point but I'm not really taken by all the hype at all.

Dead Alive is massively entertaining.

The Frighteners is probably my favourite PJ movie after FOTR. Never saw Heavenly Creatures though.

no one would hold dead alive up as an example of a 'good' movie... except maybe a high schooler that didn't know any better.

jackson is a hack. good thing he has other peoples adaptations to use/steal from.

lol okay he sure made a different movie (outside of his typical b movie crap and king kong, which could be argued it was a b movie with a list production values)... in 1994.

dude has no talent outside of middle earth ANYMORE. (happy ya pedantic little ****?) now please argue for the lovely bones's quality. i can't wait to hear this.

For what it is, I do think it's a good film. It isn't high art or bold cinema, but it accomplishes what it sets out to do. You talk about the hundreds of other b-directors out there, but I'd say Dead Alive is above other b-films.

I like King Kong alot...

And yeah, no real interest in the Hobbit other than seeing it on BD so I can have a real opinion on it.

Hobbit at 72%...why did I think about Star Trek and shields when I saw this thread? God, something is wrong with me.

Well, they will be showing a 9 min. clip of the new Star Trek movie with the Hobbit. That is just another plus for me.

Is the Shire in Herefordshire?

That would make Mordor London
