i agree that the end result is important [In reply to] Can't Post

but it's not just the extreme effort that's apparent, it is the skill and craft. some may disagree but not only do i see a ton of passion on the screen when i watch AUJ, i see technical excellence. add to that to a wonderful story, characters, and themes...and it earns a lot of good will on my part. now, you're right, it's not a perfect movie--it's far too big and ambitious to come anywhere close to some "perfect" ideal in concept and form--and any claim of such would be an affront to the same modicum of objectivity that we should be applying in any instance of art appreciation, but it also can't be everything to everyone and the same things that some complain about are things that others praise and love. so we have to be careful about definitively labeling the more subjective elements of the experience definitively "good" or "bad" when there is so much variety in the opinions and so much reasoning that could back up either position.

for instance, i might have been a bit off-base asserting that the Elven costumes are definitely better in AUJ, but in my next post i gave my reasons for saying that, and i think they are good reasons. so we can compare reasons and discuss but let's refrain from trying to overstate our positions in opposition to each other.
