Interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's see;

1. You got chills from an opening sequence, and these persist throughout the film. NO. Actually while I liked both openings, I didn't actually get that chill until Bilbo blew the smoke ring and "An Unexpected Journey" appeared. After that I was hooked. Smaug rocked, though.

2. It didn't insult your intelligence, in fact, you appreciated the fact that it took a few brain cells to keep up. NO because I knew the book too well.

3. You forgot who the actor/actresses were and saw their characters. YES. Absolutely.

4. You're still talking about the film after a reasonable amount of time. YES.

5. The audience around you was totally engaged and respectfully silent except where appropriate. YES.

6. You learned something from the film, or developed a new interest. YES. The Weta Workshop constantly teaches me things that I add to my own interests. Ditto fine actors.

7. Months or years later, you can recall key scenes in detail, not just famous lines. SAFE BET.

8. If it's not a big box office smash, you lobby others to go see it. CHECK. Actually some of the bad reviews had gotten to my friends who I know love LOTR (book and adaptation) and I insisted they see it when they could.

9. It inspires you in some part of your life. SURE.

10. It's one of those films where you see it on TV, and regardless of where they are in the story, you start to watch it. PASS. I don't watch television. But I will own it on day one of release.
