If you wonder what happened to the old topic, read this. These days, they can jail for not just hosting such material but being part of the desemination culture in the form of a 'conspiracy charge'. I prefer to keep my 'clean record' clean, as does the Admin, hence the need for a new topic strictly discussing films and animation without the insertion of controversial material.

An apt move if people were posting links to actual films but all I saw were links to trailers/posters which would not be breaking any law.

Two movies I eagerly await:

 

 

The-Hobbit-An-Unexpected-Journey-Movie-P

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

 

We have waited since December 2003 of whether we'll be seeing Hobbits, Wizards, Dwarfs etc again and we are finally going to see it. It is a prequel to The Lord Of The Rings trilogy and we see how Bilbo first had the Ring and how it was originally to him and to everyone else just a magic ring. I think that the first film is on The Hobbit novel itself all together and the second film is like the gap in between The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings (so possibly end about where Fellowship Of The Ring) began.

 

I am going to be constantly obsessed with both of these films until released. Lord Of The Rings trilogy are my number 1 favourite film (including all three) and because it stars two of the actors who delivered the best performances in the trilogy: Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis and I am intrigued at the rest of the cast especially Martin Freeman as Bilbo.

 

Peter Jackson directed, co-produced and co-wrote my favourites ever and with this prequel, I could see him making both Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit my number 1 and 2 favourites. We'll have to see.

DJANGO UNCHAINED

 

Quentin Tarantino directing a spaghetti western? Wow! Now, this will be something worthwhile. A spaghetti western + Quentin Tarantino = "cool".

 

After directing his previous film Inglourious Basterds and showing that he is capable of almost making almost any kind of film. However, I think Django Unchained could be something that is a typically unique Tarantino style, but with a very emotional story alongside. Of what we know the cast is going to be thus far, it is probably the most impressive cast that has ever been in a Quentin Tarantino film.

 

First, seeing Jamie Foxx as the protagonist. Awesome! Christoph Waltz returning in a Tarantino film after his mind-blowing Oscar-winning performance in Inglourious Basterds!

 

Leonardo DiCaprio in a Tarantino film? Awesome. Better yet, he is playing the villain! Now, that'll be REALLY interesting to see. Samuel L. Jackson who has worked alongside Tarantino a few times in the past has a role in the film too. No Tarantino works well with actors without Jackson, especially after Pulp Fiction! Kevin Costner, an actor who people have mixed feelings for, but I find a very good actor and definitely a great director, so should be great to see him in the film too!

 

I know for a fact that this will be a badass film that will rival with 'The Hobbit' in Christmas 2012. I know already that they will be my favourite films of 2012.

^^ I eagerly await the Hobbit too, should be one of the biggest films of 2013.

 

Ps: Gandalf is as short as a dwarf in that pic, what gives?

 

Fantastic Planet aka La Planete Sauvage: one of the quirkiest films I've ever seen. It'll change your perspectives of the human-animal relationship.

I've read the book and can't wait for the film. The lord of the rings trilogy had a good plot but the technology was lacking. Hopefully, the tech should be amazing this time round.

That doesn't make sense because you can say the same thing about the Hobbit in 5-10yrs time. The tech used was state of the art when LOTRs was made and is still very good.

^ Yh I know what you mean but c'mon, I'm sure you would've loved Avatar style tech. After reading the books then watching the films, a part of me feels that they made it too soon. But that doesn't take away anything from the film tho!

Anytime they chose to make it people can say "they made it too soon". With tech improving on a monthly basis I can assure you will be saying they made Avatar too soon come 2020.

 

Ps: Avatar sucked sideways and always.
