I went to see The Hobbit on Thursday. Pretty good. The landscapes and sets had a suitably epic sweep, the script was intelligent and treated the book with due respect and Jackson did a fine job of balancing up all the principals.

My only reservation is that much of had to set up plot elements for films two and three. Inevitable I suppose, but detrimental to it as a film.

Just finished watching Taken 2. I thought the first Taken was dreadful, really dreadful. Xenophobic, brutal, dumb, exploitative...did I mention dumb? But at least it had a certain energy to it. Taken 2 doesn't even have this one virtue. Plus, the plot is even more preposterous than the first. Still what you expect from a director that has changed his surname to 'Megaton'?
