You know it's true.
I have a confession.
I think Lord of the Rings is terribly boring. I fell asleep during the second movie - about half-way through, and I wasn't even watching it alone - conditions were perfect, actually. I'm sorry, but to me, it feels like a story about walking up and down stairs and while it was moderately appealing when it was "just a story", now that it's plastered all over the place and everybody and their dog loves and praises it, it has a foul aftertaste.
you know what is a good movie?
Did you try the Hobbit? Just curious.
I watched the entire first film and I was very moderately entertained, I slept through the second one, I didn't even give the third one a chance (I think I saw the ending on telle). Considering the fact that I'm aware that The Hobbit is a cinematic scam designed to stretch out a short story into a three-movies-long epic in order to squeeze the customer's wallet dry, I'm not even mildly interested in it.
Just curious, I agree it's a scam of sorts. Now I do like Lotr, but I always liked the Hobbit more than the first 3 movies combined. But honestly I can see why you would be bored.
Foxi4 did you like inception?
i fucking love it.
Inception was good, although I don't think I saw the whole thing since it didn't peak my interest at the time - another film I probably saw on the telle some undefined amount of time ago, but I liked what I saw and I remember the story for the most part.
what your fav movies... list them.
sorry dinoh <3 for taking over your thread.
We should totally give Dinoh his Bombaboobies back, but I'll answer your question.
I value entertainment over substance, but at the same time I don't like my movies to treat me like an idiot with the exception of B-movies which are supposed to be bad. Some of my favorite movies can thus be easily predicted - I love James Cameron's "Aliens", "Terminator" and "Terminator 2", John Carpenter's "The Thing", George Lucas's "Star Wars", Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" and other beloved sci-fi masterpieces... but... at the same time, I love the Paul W.S. Anderson's "Resident Evil" series or Uwe Boll's (yyyyup...) "Postal" because they're just so delightfuly bad that it's entertaining.
If you can gather a taste from that information, I'd say that my primary interest is sci-fi, but I generally enjoy movies in which "something happens". LOTR dwelled too much for me, it was long-winded and dull when it was supposed to convey a sense of adventure. All I remember about the second movie are the stairs - I'm serious. It's a movie about climbing stairs.
did you like Christopher Nolan Batmans?
GTFO with your off topic shit dammit
THIS THREAD IS ABOUT ME AND OR BOMBABOOBIES
Yes, but let's go back on-topic before Tom's pressure rises any higher and a vein pops in his Bombadildo.
When I Image Search Bombadildo boobies on Google I see a disturbing amount of weeaboo waifus, My Little Pony... "pics", furries and this:
We Must talk about lord of the rings, and KEEP IT OFF TOPIC!
no you are good flame, keep it on topic and talk about boobs.
You damn hipster ;O;
That's not my point. My point is that a lot of people argue that "it's good" because "it's Tolkien" and "everybody likes it" and those are not arguments to me. I found the story dull and it didn't really convince me to spend my precious time reading the no doubt far superior book. I really have a lot of fun things to do in my life and watching a couple of hairy midgets climb a volcanic staircase is not one of them. To be fair though, the war scenes were fantastic - combat was the highlight of the movies.
Fucking lazy fuck At least read the books, they actually mention Tom Bombadil in all of his glory and splendor HEY DOL MERRY DOL MOTHERFUCKERS
As if I don't have enough books to read already for my honours thesis - thanks, but no thanks, you can shove that Bombadil up your Dol-Dol.
