20 minutes into Terminator Salvation for the first time.

Not sure if I'll get much further.

EDIT: 25 minutes in and certain "McG" and the pair of hack writers should never, ever, work again.

Haha you should keep going for laughs, the first 25 minutes are the best part of the movie!  He is not quite on Bay levels imo, but he is pretty bad.

Looks excellent. I love this drama > action tone they've got going on. Michael Shannon and Amy Adams are also two of the best actors working right now. I honestly can't think of a better actress than Amy Adams.

looking forward to this, and tend to agree. she's, amy adams, certainly excelled in her earlier naievety roles.

also looking forward to her forthcoming movie, 'get it while you can' in which she stars as janis joplin. big transition.

Actually you're right. My first wife was even worse.

Watched Ruby Sparks last night, felt a bit of a let down after Little Miss Sunshine, had its moments but the title character was extremely obnoxious and irritating.

Saw The Hobbit last night. What a masterpiece. Spoilers may follow so you have been warned (if you haven't read the book/seen the film yet):

The only issue I had with the 48fps was the opening few minutes when the camera is panning over a couple of areas (bird's eye view wise) but other than that I didn't have any issues regarding that.

The riddles scene was absolutely perfect, the escape from the Goblin caves was majestic (it was the Bridge of Khazad Dum amplified 100 times over) and the extra material they added (e.g. Radagast) actually fused well with the main plot.

All in all, it is a must see and definitely in my top three films of this year.

I want to see The Hobbit. I expect they'll do a better job of it compared to Lord of the Rings, purely because they have the experience, and the book is a lot shorter, so three films from it should be more detailed.

Anyone worried over how it's going to span three films needn't worry themselves. Jackson has included bits from the Silmarillion and from other short stories that Tolkien wrote and, judging by what's included partway through the first film, there's room to include a particularly tasty piece in the second/third film.

The LotR trilogy has put me off ever watching a Peter Jackson film again.
