Not so sure about that one [In reply to] Can't Post

The reason I found it hard to enjoy the first time was for several reasons-mainly being a fool and becoming put off by the opinions of those around me-throughout the film there were multiple sighs and groans from certain people (particularly during the Radagast scenes) and at other moments too such as when Balin calls Sting a "letter opener". So that somewhat impacted on the experience. In addition to that the cinema I was in was not of a high standard: indeed it seemed that it hadn't been refurbished or updated since the 1980's, and it was quite uncomfortable (I chose to go here instead of the local cinema because I wanted to see it on the 13th instead of the 14th). In essence, the entire experience was marred (and I won't lie that having some board member's preconceptions/critic's voices in the back of my head didn't really help much).

The second time I was less tired and I was at my local cinema, and consequently I was able to see the film's high qualities along with its (mostly forgivable and understandable) faults.

"True courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one."

        I largely agree. The proof is in how the skipping is done. I do the least skipping in this film, possibly AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Apr 8 2013, 11:24pm
