    Well, bear in mind that Lincoln is a 2 1/2 hour talky extravaganza. I'm not its biggest fan (although I loved Daniel Day-Lewis and the way it looked) but I'm aware that I'm definitely in the minority on this one. :O

    Maybe seeing Les Miserable today. I hear good things about it, so im sure it'll be great.

    The movie is too late today, so seeing it tomorrow, which also happens to be my sister's birthday.

    I would love to go and see Les Mes but I just saw the Hobbit earlier this week and my family, unless we're going with a friend, tend to be on this 'one movie a year' sort of deal due to how much they are. Though since my brother missed seeing the Hobbit with us (we thought he was going to see it with his friend but apparently his friend had already saw it guh) he'll be going to see that today and we're... probably going to go carpet shopping or something?? idek anymore since who knows when my sister is going to wake up.

        I had no idea there was a new movie adaptation for Les Mis. I'm too busy being safe and cozy under my rock to know what's going on in the world. I'm curious about it, but I refuse to pay 17$ to see any movie

        Yeah I skipped The Hobbit to watch Les Mis because I'm the same way about movies - it was Les Mis or The Hobbit.

Also Amanda Seyfried <33
          I'd be more concern about the movie watchers' demands for pure original movies (Star Wars, E.T., Inception, etc) rather than movies based on history novels/musicals, because those people would mark the end of Hollywood and the beginning of the Moviepocalypse, as suggested by the Movie Preview Critic.

              Um no, perhaps I should go into more detail. The people who demand more original movies believe that if Hollywood were to continue making movies based off of books, comics, TV shows, plays, musicals, and toy lines, as well as remakes and sequels to previous movies, it would mark the end of Hollywood as we know it. That's what I'm trying to say.

              That's fine and dandy, but I'm sure most people are still fans of movie adaptations just for the thrill of indulging in someone else's perception of whatever it is adapting. I like them, anyway!

                These kinds of people misunderstand that every idea is based on something, and that the mainstream movie industry is not the only place where brilliant ideas can be found.

                Movies based on books and stuff are usually very well made, Harry Potter films were terrific as were Lord of the Rings, and The Hunger Games( though the other films of that series have yet to be released but Im expecting them to retain their quality). Les Miserables looks like a very good film and I cant wait to see it, I enjoy seeing films based on already existing material, I like seeing what people bring to it in film, original films are also great, but I really enjoy films based on books and such.

                I've only seen one movie that was based on a book I've actually finished and it was quite a while ago.

                In some ways, I think movies made from books can ruin it a bit. Isn't some of the fun of reading being able to mentally picture what's going on? The details of characters that haven't been described? The exact landscape of where they are?

                  I think it's strange that a lot of people forget that Hollywood movies aren't the only movies out there. There are some absolutely brilliant movies made in-house by smaller studios around the world. Has anyone ever been to a film festival?

                  And I quite liked the Hobbit a lot :33

                    The Hobbit was amazing, just got back from watching it, haha! It's a fine piece of work indeed.

                    I dont get to see The Hobbit because my mom hates violence in films, and I dont feel like going by myself.

                      That's a shame that your mom doesn't like action choreography. I find it really cool how movies do their stunts. Some of my ABSOLUTE fav are action fighting and stunts by Jackie Chan.. he is awesome! *_*

                        I don't go to see movies much anymore. You pay money to sit in a gross theater and have to deal with the reactions of strangers. (; Depending on where you live, it might be cheaper to buy the movie than to go with someone else (once it's out, obviously).

                        But it's still enjoyable, in my opinion. Too bad the one near my house has closed down.

                          I prefer watching movies on the TV at home (yay pausing, yay good food, etc) but going out to see something in the theater once in a while is always fun :3

                          Same. As childish as it sounds, I'm not real big on movies; I end up bored and my mind wanders. I don't exactly have the best attention span, unless I'm reading a book I like or something.

                          And I quite liked the Hobbit a lot :33
                          Never been to a film festival, but I've seen a few independent movies, and I think What's Eating Gilbert Grape starring Johnny Depp was an independent film, right? Even if it wasn't, that was a gem all its own.

                          I saw Lincoln a while back. I think I might be one of the rare people who enjoyed the talking and the relatively simplistic back-end proto-lobbying. xD

                          But yeah I wanna see the Hobbit too. Maybe when I get back to LA...
