'k It's out.. wha'cha think?

Where it's not Ranger related. Rankin Bass, Bakshi, PJ, or independent. If it's not specifically ranger related, let's talk movies (or TV)!

Ok, I'll post my usual comment on the PJ Hobbit / LotR fanfics. I was fortunate to be able to see them at free premieres, so I didn't have to spend good cash to be subjected to them. The three hobbit films did make the three LotR films look better in comparison. No, I'm not a fan of PJ Boyens & co's fanfic screenplays. But I give credit where credit is due, and for the most part ( with a few glaring exceptions) they got character casting pretty good in all the movies, and got the scenes pretty good for The Shire and Bree and some of the landscapes. But a great actor cast in character and they can own the part, but they can't do much about a crappy screenplay. Did I expect the movies to be exactly like the books? of course not, but these movie screenplays were a piss-poor attempt (if I can call it that) at telling the tale. All I can say is I hope I live long enough to see the re-makes.
