Does it have the same cast as the second part or are they going to change it again?

I don't know. Wikipedia didn't say. Even if it did, it would likely be subject to change by the time it got in front of a camera. These movies are the pinnacle of a vanity project and that they keep making them when the previous one just doesn't make any money is ridiculous.

It's almost like they were made by someone who didn't understand how capitalism works.  :P

The Brady Bunch is due for a remake... I'm guessing in a Twilight series based on a Star Trek episode inspired by John Denver of Gilligan's Island starring Justin Bieber as Greg.. :roll:

Yeah, but The Rick Copeland has to admit that if he were a gaziliionaire he'd finance a shot-by-shot re-make of all three of them. Maybe with the all wee folk or Down Syndrome cast... Or maybe Down Syndrome wee folk...

But it is funny when you make a movie extolling the free market andthe free market tells you to fuck off..

Cloud Atlas - 9/10

Very good movie, complex.

Planet Hulk

6/10 - slightly entertaining. Gimmicky characters and story; traditional Marvel.

Oddly enough, I didn't really watch movies till about a year and a half ago (I would see them in the theatre from time to time, but not buy any). I've just recently started liking movies, and generally watch at least one or two a week to try and catch up with the rest of the world.

LotR: The Fellowship of the Rings
-Since it is the first in a series, I will cut it some slack. I never felt like any scene just went on for too long.
-I found the soundtrack and scenery very awesome, from the peaceful Shire to the awesome Dwarf ruins and the two statues on the river whom's names I cannot remember.
-I didn't find myself hating any of the main characters, which is rare. Don't learn too much about some of them, so that could change though. Even the "bad" fellowship member's "badness" is understandable, given he wants to protect his people.
-The fight involving the fellowship along the river is awesome, and I love how much of a bad ass Sean Bean is in it near the end.
-The Dwarf city fight is also bad ass.

Con:
-How did Gandolf teleport through the roof of Isengard?
-Why don't they just use birds to fly to Morodor (besides the obvious; they are just too badass)?
-Why is Agent Smith high as fuck, thinking he is an elf and shit?
-Is Frodo a moron? Like, "HEY GUIZ, I HAZ DIS RING, ANYONE WANT IT!?!?!". What about, "This ring will tempt and destroy people" are you having such a fucking hard time understanding?

Overall, I give it an 8.75 out of 10.

LotR: The Two Towers

-Gandolf the White is bad ass, even if it feels like a Jesus reference.
-Helm's Deep is bad ass.
-The Ente's are funny and bad ass, even if the Isengard battle is too short.
-The scene with the King of Rohan and Wormtongue was bad ass.
-Sam's speech at the end of the movie is bad ass.
-Arwen's speech with her father and his responses are bad ass.
-This movie is bad ass.
-And again, the scenery and the music is bad ass.

Cons:
-Gandolf, Arragon... the whole, "OMG THEY ARE DEAD!!! LOLJK!" is kinda annoying and predictable. But oh well.
-I don't know if Faramir dies at the end, or they mean his life is forfeit in that he loses his title, right to live in Gondor, etc. and that annoys me.

Overall, I give it a 9.40 out of 10.

1) Magic 2) They'd be easily spotted and killed.  The idea with the hobbits is to sneak the ring in.  3) A glitch in the Matrix  4) Yeah, they're idiots.  And the ring seems to grant emo powers more than anything else.

The Rick Copeland knows what you mean. It's almost as if Gandalf is a wizard or some shit...

Perhaps because it's mostly set-up. The Rick Copeland has noticed many who thought "The Hobbit" was dull didn't care for the extended versions of the LotR movies either...
