    agreed, wouldn't exactly call him weak, but Aragorn certainly did not have a very kingly presence. I hated Feramir too, the entire movie I just wanted to slap him.

    The singing gave me shivers, I'm glad they're including it.
    Whoops.

    Wow, Guillermo Del Toro at least stuck around to lend a hand in writing the screenplay. I love his work, save for Pan's Labyrinth, and he would've been an awesome choice for the director. His films typically have a Tim Burtonesque feel for them. No matter, I'm looking forward to his Pacific Rim.

    I thought the fantasy aspect was kinda lame, though many of its concepts were later perfected in Hellboy 2. And the latter film was also in English, so I wasn't distracted by annoying subtitles.

    I guess we have very different tastes. It's one of my favorite movies, and I didn't really like the Hellboys much (although I love the graphic novels), they seemed goofy to me in comparison to the tone of the original medium.

    I also started out adverse to subtitles (typical American!), but after seeing that movie, and a few others that were subtitled, I now don't have an issue with them if the movie is good.

    I had trouble hating Faramir, because his father treated him so poorly. However, the movie kind of raped the character; he had originally been one of my favorite book characters, and I was disappointed by the movie treatment.

    Because of my overall disappointment with LOTR, I'm not really that excited with the thought of The Hobbit. (If the cleansing of Dol Guldur becomes just one more "Gauntlet" video game bughunt using wizards for firepower, I'll be disgusted.) However, I'll have to watch the vid when I get home just to hear the music. I'm expecting to get more pleasure out of the next Star Trek and the next James Bond pics; if The Hobbit does better than the fourth Underworld movie (which I have bad suspicions about), I'll be pleased.
