    I'm still hoping he'll add either Journey to Austria or The Austrian Way to the programme. Just because.

    Mr. Breathmask got a reaction from oierem in The Hobbit Recut - The Fan Edits thread   
    The troll sequence is so prominently referenced in The Lord of the Rings, there would be riots in the streets if they hadn't included it in The Hobbit!
     
    I mostly find the exposition in An Unexpected Journey to be hindering to the pace. Never mind that it takes Bilbo a goddamn 45 minutes to start on his quest. At least those 45 minutes are evenly paced, if slow. But when he finally leaves Bag End and the movie seems to start in earnest, we get the introduction of Azog and the flashback to the fight at Moria and the movie grinds to a halt again. It is also the first time the film really can't seem to make up its mind whether it's about Bilbo or Thorin - a problem that only becomes more prominent as we progress through the trilogy.

    But a film shot at a high frame rate played back at 24fps will still have the shorter exposure time inherent to the high frame rate. Which means less motion blur than we're used to, leading to a crisper look than usual.

    I'm getting to see John Williams conduct an orchestra in real life. I still have a hard time believing this is something that will happen within three months from now. He could conduct Pirates of the Caribbean for all I care.

    Mr. Breathmask got a reaction from Josh500 in A.I. Artificial Intelligence vs. Minority Report   
    I watched A.I. again this week. It's a fascinating film, but I find it so disjointed and unsatisfying. It really feels like Spielberg inherited the first act from Kubrick, which raises all these interesting philosophical and ethical questions about love, simulation and the need for human connection, only for Spielberg to then get completely caught up in OMG IT'S A SCI-FI PINOCCHIO STORY and never saying anything interesting or definitive about these questions again for the rest of the film.
     
    The score, however, is gorgeous.
     
    It's been a while since I saw Minority Report, but I remember finding it a lot tighter and more thrilling. I'll probably revisit this soon, but for now I prefer this movie over A.I.

    I guess. There's been an overkill of content lately and Star Wars just bores me these days. I even have a hard time getting into the ST scores.
     
    Anyway, I got two tickets for this. Hurray! We'll be up on the balcony above the orchestra, but it looks like we'll have a good view of Williams conducting, so yay!

    I don't recognize The Rebellion Is Reborn. Could that be from Episode IX? 
     
    Oh. Its from TLJ. Never mind.
