I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

I'll attend the Christchurch rally as I'm confident of being in these movies if filmed in 'Zealand.

Sad but true [In reply to] Can't Post

You're right about the money men only caring about the masses getting their butts in theater seats. However, if I'm not happy with the film I won't go more than once and I had planned on seeing it in the theater 3 times like I did with the other films. I also won't be as interested in owning the DVD or whatever format or any other merchandise. The masses might go to the theater once. Is that enough for the money men to consider it financially successful? Is box office the sweetest plum? I though it was DVDS and other merch. But, sadly you may be right. Not enough of us hardcore fans to make much of a difference I guess. It is also the masses that are the deciding factor in these films being 3D. So lame. I guess it's bitter sweet. Without the masses there would be no films but to please them is to sacrifice quality. And by that I'm referring to the location possibly being lost without fan consideration and the 3D nonsense.
Heavy sigh

The Trees will have their revenge! And they will have it in glorious 2D!
