Your Weekend Justice #224: Coffee and the Euphemism Motherlode

Dance the Kung Fu

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that dares to completely sully the name of its own damn website. Go figure.

Note: Please excuse random and brief noises. Not sure where they came from. Maybe it’s all in my head.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – 27 Second Review

Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Written by: Peter Jackson, Guillermo Del Toro, Fran Walsh, and Phillipa Boyens, based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien
Directed by: Peter Jackson
Starring: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch

Review: In what’s winding up to be a six (possibly seven?) part Tolkien franchise, I enjoyed this one more than its predecessor. The action, while cartoonish, is fairly consistent, and we get several little treats in the form of cameos, combat barrels, and elves using various enemies as surf boards. Not to mention Cumberbatch and Armitage having a sassy insult throwdown.

Time: 18 seconds

    Fast Forward Headache Madness: Thoughts on The Hobbit and High Frame Rate…

    Peter Jackson on the set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    So like all good geeks and movie enthusiasts, I visited my local cinema in the last few weeks to see the first film in The Hobbit‘s trilogy. Wisely, I chose not to reread the book beforehand. As it turned out, it was also wise of me to pay attention to the reactions of other people regarding the look of this high frame rate production. The reactions were all over the map; our landlord and chief bottlewasher Widge was definitely not on the fence about the subject. As for me, I happen to be on both sides of the fence.

    Let’s dive into this head first, shall we? Did The Hobbit look like rubbish? Like with most questions in life, there isn’t a simple yes or no answer to this one. The projection I saw–3D and high frame rate–looked sometimes brilliant, sometimes average, sometimes goofy, sometimes like a fast forwarded documentary in hi-def.
