Finisher: 3×10 oblique sit-ups

Has anyone seen a good movie lately?  There were several near 3-hour movies out over the holidaze.  I had the pleasure of sitting through three of them: The Hobbit, Django Unchained, and Les Miserables.  I thought all three were great movies.

I wonder if any of you had the pleasure of seeing any of these films?  Are you excited that The Hobbit is going to be a trilogy or does that just sound tiresome?  Where does Django rate among Tarantino’s oeuvre?  Did anyone else have a problem with all of the extreme close-ups in Les Mis with no depth of field?  I thought some actors carried it well, but others not so much.

That’s nearly 9 hours of sitting for those keeping count at home,

    More excited about The Hobbit than I expected to be. Thought it was awesome actually. I will let you know my thoughts on the others after I see them. Reports of extremely brutal violence, language, etc. in Django has my interest as to whether it is another masterpiece or if Tarantino went too far. Props to anyone who knows the town in TN in which Tarantino grew up.

    I thought The Hobbit was fantastic as well and am thrilled that it’s three movies. It probably could have been an 8 hour movie and I would have been just fine with that. Yeah, there were scenes they could have easily left out to make it shorter, but I enjoyed it just the same and never thought that them being there made it drag. Les Mis was good, but I did get tired of the close-ups, nose hairs, etc. I also looked at my watch more than once, but the last 30 minutes made up for it I guess. I liked seeing the barricade scenes on screen, but probably enjoyed seeing in on the stage a little better overall. Hugh Jackman & Anne Hathaway impressed for sure though. Also, it wasn’t a 3 hr movie, but I thought Silver Linings Playbook was hilarious. The rest of my family was like, uh… Maybe it takes one to know one. Oh! and Life of Pi made me cry. But seeing as how one of the main characters is a tiger, this shouldn’t surprise anyone too much.

    He didn’t grow up there, but isn’t his family from Maynardville? It’s references in Inglorious Basterds (Brad Pitt’s character).

    I thought he was born in Knoxville and moved to Cali around 2 or 3?

    I saw Lincoln over the holidays. It was pretty fantastic.

    You know how I feel about the Hobbit Trilogy…

    That is all.
