    Good old fashioned quest. A little narrow-minded acting at times. Bit predictable in the end, bit of a let down too. Johnny Depp made it more interesting then it really was.

    Loved HFR in combination with 3D. Loved seeing all the old characters back in action. Loved the detail throughout the movie as was the case with the LOTR films. Loved the CGI, trolls were great, Erebor was great, Gollum was great. Can't wait for part 2 & 3.

    Awesome!

    Love Magician movies ... they keep me glued to the screen. You could say it's a heist movie but with an amazing cast, it doesn't really matter. You can figure the plot out watching the movie but why want to.

    So cool to enjoy a movie and learn something in the progress.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Quentin had me from beginning to end, there was one thing that threw me off from the flow I was in: when Django shoots Candies sister he does so an a 45º downward angle. From the blast she falls straight backwards instead of falling at the angle she was shot in. Just a minor glitch from an otherwise very successful movie!

  • The Amazing Spider-Man

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2012 1

    Love this reboot! Of course anyone is going to compare this to the Raimi's Spiderman movies, those had good parts and some less ones. So does this, I liked a lot of scenes, couple could have been better compared to Spider-man. But on it's own, this movie is really likable. Sometimes it goes to fast. I am just a sucker for the whole transition phase. Going from Parker to Spiderman with the suit and discovering his super powers cannot be dragged out long enough for me. Andrew Garfield is great!

    Loved it! A roller coaster of a movie where the pace goes up and down. Excellent opening scene followed by quietness and excitement along the way. Oh ... and the font used for the title really sucks!

    Best if you don't read, watch or know anything about this movie ... because it will have you on the edge of your seat (so, stop reading;-). Great twists and turns into an unknown world of illegality!

    ★★★★ Watched 09 May, 2015

    Solid. Eddie Redmayne who plays Balem is brilliant. Visual effects are really good. Sound is ok and I am sure there will be a sequel. Not really sure why people are not rating it higher.
