might i suggest The New World by TMalick? [In reply to] Can't Post

Wink


It will never be the same if you see it at home with an HD screen...but its better than nothing.

At the cinema, it was the best cinematic experience of my life.

Unparalleled cinematic beauty.

A mix of David Lean, Weir, and Malick would make the perfect filmmaker for Lotr.

One thing to consider is the highly "interpretable" nature of The Hobbit. [In reply to] Can't Post

No matter who did the project, dialogue would need to be interpolated and visual details would need to be specified - to say the least and at the bare minimum. All of this requires an element of creativity and interpretation that leaves and version open to criticism of this kind (failure to stay true to source material) - especially where these kinds of details in any given scene would inevitably miss the images generated in any one individual's own imagination.

Saw this last night at 7pm pst. It's a fun movie but fairly average as a whole with little emotion in the story. All, I kept thinking was I'm glad GDT skipped out on The Hobbit.

GDT time delays: they do make sense [In reply to] Can't Post

GDT prior to being offered the Hobbit made it clear in several interviews he hated fantasy. Now whilst I have nothing against GDT or his films, I felt that GDT was looking for a big flagship Hollywood/Oscar project to pin his name to and he saw TH as that project, nothing more. When the delays with TH got in the way or risked the possibility of GDT losing out on other films he wanted to do, he left.

Do not misunderstand me, there is nothing wrong with director wanting a career nor, with someone taking on a film project with which they have no preconceptions or love, sometimes that can be a plus, fresh eyes and all.

The one thing that unnerved me about the Del Toro announcement was his turn around, he did do some pretty swift backtracking regarding his disparaging remarks about the fantasy genre in interviews when he was announced as the helm for The Hobbit. He also made comments indicating that he left the Hobbit because of the time delays that were affecting his ability to make other career defining projects.

I agree, I don't think this had anything to do with a PJ versus GDT conflict of any sort, most directors, aside from those few who have already reached the pinnacle of acclaim and success(Scott, Spielberg etc), would have seen The Hobbit as a career defining moment that had the potential to propel them into the higher eschalons of film therefore granting them a licience( read open cheque book) to persue their dream projects, GDT was just one of those directors whose career could have lept into orbit.

Honestly if GDT was trying to cover up any hypothetical falling out with PJ, he could have just lied in the interview and said he saw AUJ and quite liked it, no one would have been any the wiser!

Him being an anime guy makes sense why I haven't heard of him. I don't particularly care for anime so again that would be why.

As you love The Hobbit, you might enjoy Spirited Away and possibly Howl's. [In reply to] Can't Post

There are different types of Anime. He specializes in the type that charms and bewonders.

+1 , except I haven't seen Hellboy. [In reply to] Can't Post

The things I didn't care for in The Hobbit are the things that Del Toro probably would have done, too. I'm blah Jackson went on to do The Hobbit, and I doubt that del Toro was pushed out in any way. I can well imagine that he was just frustrated as one thing after another caused delays. Unlike del Toro, Jackson LIVES in NZ and was better placed to wait out a movie that was trying to get made there.

Frustration [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree. I have no doubts he was pretty fed up at the end and don't blame him for walking away.
