Seconded. Makes absolutely no sense at all.

Well now you're just nitpicking.

"Song name" - band name

Makes sense to me!

Oh, and I started the thread and listed the song first, then the band, so I'm right and all you other motherfuckers are wrong!

Being wrong first isn't being right.

I don't think it's that bad. It depends on how you look at things. The only time I'd find it remotely annoying is if the bands name and a song title could be confused as one or the other. (ex. Cell - In the Woods) Could go either way if you've never heard the band. That's why I always try to italicize the title of a song in any posts I make.

I do find it annoying when people use abbreviations for song titles. "Metallica came out and played a wicked set kicking off with FWTBT, followed by RTL, MoP, SBT, WHS and killed it with a blistering rendition of FFWF". That's only because it makes me think too much. And then my brain hurts.

Agreed 100%.

I loved The Hobbit, and I am very hyped for the second one.Of course it's not as good as the LOTR trilogy (IMO no movie ever will be), but doesn't make it any less fun.

I really think that most of what was cut out of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy was cut for good reason. Tom Bambadill, the long journey home, the battle for the Shire, it really didn't miss it. The extended editions were just enough, and the death Saroman got in the movies was way better than the books.

The Hobbit, however, I think they're going to be stretching it too thin with three parts. I've heard the second movie will end where the book ended and the third movie will just be tying in to the Lord of the Rings. So we'll have to wait and see how it's done. But it reeks of a cash-grab to me.

Regardless, they're two of the best series I've ever seen.

Agreed about LOTR, those books are fucking long and have a lot of material that would have felt tedious and at times silly in the films. The extended editions push how long one can keep attention for, they are as much information as can be put into film from those books really.

The Hobbit trilogy is a cash grab, but it's a dam good quality one with some love for the source material in mind.

Well, the purpose of ANY Hollywood movie is to make money. What I mean by "cash-grab" is more that they're trying to squeeze as much as they can out of it no matter what. Stretching it too thin. As long is it stays in Peter Jacksons hands it will be good. But this whole conversation started with the comment about fanboys and source material. Depending on how it's done most people will probably be happy but there will be more than a few fanboys who will hate it because they got Glfondrial the High Dwarfs hairstyle wrong, or something.

I saw a poster for it (the next Hobbit movie) in the theater today and "it moved".

I don't like the 3D stuff, either. I hated that that was my only option at the movie theatre to see this movie. I rarely go out to see a movie these days and if everything's going to be 3D, rarely will turn into never.
There was a time that my local theater never offered both the 2 & 3D versions. But about a year ago, they changed their minds.

The 2D screening for The Wolverine was as equally packed as the 3D-one. It's just there to earn extra money.
