I don't think there was a 48 fps option in the cinema where I watched The Hobbit. At least the version I watched was definitely not in 48 fps...
How can people complain about a film that looks too real? I don't know but I'm seeing the Hobbit this Friday in 48 fps 3D and I expect it to be jolly good
Also, I'm going to check out Django Unchained later on this month too. That movie has seen exceptional reviews so far, and I love Jamie Foxx as an actor.

I didn't like how Radagast was portrayed... and I didn't like the ressurection of Azog. Also, I didn't like how he took away the providence and made it look like Gandolf called the Eagles.
But I can't express it right, these weren't the real problem
I just felt like PJ wanted to all over the movie instead of letting the universe talk by himself..
I liked the 48fps+3D and since it is a "new" technology, I don't mind the little problems. I expect it to improve with more directors adopting the tech
Saw the Hobbit yesterday and it was worth all the hype! The new format in 3D took me a little time to get used to, but I enjoyed it for the most part. The action sequences were fun and looked absolutely amazing in 48fps. The film had beautiful scenery as well. Some of the woodland views and majestic shots of Rivendell had me holding my jaw. I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel coming out next year, and watching more films (preferably action) in 48fps.
Went to see "Django Unchained" yesterday and the film wasn't too bad. The story was pretty to the point and QT still hasn't lost his touch with making a great film and getting his artistic point across. The whole "slavery subject matter" was bit testy at times, but it was expected from the start.
Waiting for the "Pacific Rim" film to come, looks to be the most promising one to come out, despite it's influences of "Neon Genesis Evangelion".
I don't know if anyone else saw Les Miserables, but I hated it. Everyone else I went with seemed to like and/or love it. So I was the only one that hated it, but I have to know if anyone else saw it and agrees with me!
The only redeeming quality for it was Anne Hathaway. She was brilliant, but considering her part is only in the first 20-30 minutes of the movie...
Has anyone here seen Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom? If so, what was your reaction to it?

This is scene was hilariously disturbing. x_x
I might end up seeing it with my Dad since he's totally gay for it
I watched Cloud Atlas and I totally loved it. Its a spellbinding movie. Of course, it has my all time favorite Tom Hanks. It was fascinating to see the actors and actoresses playing different characters in a same movie.
Also watched, Hit and Run. It was entertaining. Not a great movie but enjoyable nevertheless.
I saw Django Unchained last night. It was certainly a good movie. Would I call it one of the best movies of 2012? Yes. This movie is certainly the worth the price of an admission ticket. The performances were top notch (especially Samuel L Jackson gosh that man absolutely nailed his role ), and the humor will greatly entertain the viewer. I didn't like musical selection/score at times, and it had its fair share of cheesy slightly exaggerated moments (I kind of enjoyed them, but it was more like guilty pleasure). Also, this movie is incredibly long. I went to go see it at 6:40 pm and didn't get out until like 9:40 pm crazy right?! . The director could of definitely shortened some scenes or took some out completely. However, like I said it's a good movie, and frequent movie goers should definitely go see it.

Also, I was kind of expecting it, but man did they abuse the word nigger in that movie. I don't think I've ever heard it said so many times in one sitting for any movie. Honestly, It felt a bit excessive.

I just saw the hobbit. I have to say, I actually enjoyed the movie, it was really well done. I usually hate the whole 3d thing but seeing this one was awesome. Perhaps this was due to the movie theater getting better 3d glasses though. I could actually remember reading the book when I was 12 or 13 as I saw the movie.
I was a little disappointed about a few changes in the scenes though.
New trailer released for Pacific Rim:
Showing more of the giant robots and suits.
No comments about Oscar 2013 nominees? Except Les Miserables, I think the nominees for the Best Picture are acceptable. I haven't watch Zero Dark Thirty yet, but judging from the trailer alone it looks pretty interesting.
I heard that Pacific Rim is influenced by Evangelion, is that true?
I was not aware of this with Pacific Rim and Evangelion; I wouldn't be surprised if Del Torro was influenced by it, which is fine; as long as it's not considered a rip off of the anime.
Django was awesome, a definite must-watch. Some scenes were brutal, though.
