    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring


    Whomsoever did the color grading on the HD rerelease of the Extended Edition should face the wrath of whatever the filmmaking equivalent of Ents is. Giant sentient cameras with unspooled celluloid tendrils just picking up DaVinci workstations and throwing them at people

    It's kind of wild watching the special features in the Appendices about color grading and editing now. You can see smart, creative people circa 2000 point out mistakes they could have made if they hadn't been careful, and then see people circa 2010 make those exact mistakes.

    I'd like Richard Ayoade to make another film, please
