Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 I’ve heard a LOT of talk about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 including this scathing review from Ann Hornaday, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 who panned it on the Tony Kornheiser show and in her review in the Washington Post. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Hornaday’s discussion with Kornheiser kind of turned a light on for me, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 something I’d never really thought about before this past weekend: not everyone loves the fantasy genre.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It seems like an obvious thing. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Not everyone loves romantic comedies. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Not everyone loves courtroom dramas. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Not everyone loves a period piece. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 And yeah, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 not everyone loves dragons and wizards.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There are genres I dislike too. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 I’m just not a fan anymore (I was at one time, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 long ago) of splatter pics or psycho-thrillers. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 But this is mostly because I dislike the uncomfortable feeling I get from them. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 What discomfort is there in seeing wizards and dragons on the screen? I find it odd that sorcery and goblins turn people off, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 especially when there is so much more to a good movie than that.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It must be something else, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 something that gets included in the shorthand of calling something a wizards and dragons movie.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 The critics are in full agreement on a couple of things about this new Peter Jackson film. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 First, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 everyone agrees that it’s too long, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 which points to a few other things, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 such as pacing and plot. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 The effects seem to be disliked by most of the critics, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 too. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 They think the whole thing is bloated, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 perhaps with too many action sequences.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 I mention all of this to say that they might be right, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but I still think The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is going to be my favorite film of 2012. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It is long, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but it’s not unpleasantly so. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It does take its time, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but it does it in good ways, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 establishing mood and character in a manner I found pleasant and interesting. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 I might agree with its having too many action sequences, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but I’ve come to expect that from such films. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Plus, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 one of the sequences near the end, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 in which the dwarfs (with wizard) escape a goblin kingdom, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 is pretty creative.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 The film’s saving grace, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 according to critics, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 is the Riddles in the Dark scene with Bilbo and Golem. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 I have not read the novel on which this film and its two forthcoming sequels are based, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but I am very familiar with this scene, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 as it was read to me by a teacher in fourth grade who then asked us to see if we could come up with our own rhyming riddles. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 While I really enjoyed the way the scene plays out, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 it seems to me that something was slightly off in the animators’ computers. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Golem’s movements are all terrific, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 as they were in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but something about the way his body interacts with the earth doesn’t seem right. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 His gravity is off, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 and he seems to be hovering a few atoms’ width above the earth.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 But c’mon. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It’s a trek. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It stars a simple, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 innocent hobbit, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 someone pure enough of heart to be least corruptible by access to limitless power. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Bilbo’s greatest moments don’t come as the result of magic, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 but as expressions of decency and compassion, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 something Gandalf the Grey rather heavy-handedly (but poetically and sweetly) makes too obvious in a conversation with Galadriel. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 The world can be changed and its wars can be won by everyday moments of kindness and love.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 This is not my review, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 which I’ll write later this week. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 These are just some thoughts about how a film with such mixed reviews can so quickly and deeply resonate with me, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 and how there must be some kind of disconnect between what I see on that screen for close to three hours and what critics see.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There is more to a fantasy movie than magic and monsters. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There is scale, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 for one thing. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 Fantasies tend to be about huge things. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There is a lot of walking, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 as Kevin Smith derisively points out (which is funny because in his movies, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 there’s lots of sitting). Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There’s an assembly of differently-talented adventurers. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 There’s fictional history, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 which must all be explained by someone, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 often at great length and in great detail. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 And there’s always the impending showdown. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 If those things tend to turn you off, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 you probably won’t want to see this film.

Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 But if they don’t, aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 see it. Aristocort 40mg pills $182.00 It’s a wonderful movie.


  1. I find that sometimes, people who don’t like fantasy think it’s all just silly. I’ve also found that those who haven’t given it much of a chance write it off as being nerdy & put down its fans, but we’re usually having more fun than anyone else.

  2. me

    There are a lot of silly things in movies that generally get received well, such as talking animals in Disney cartoons. Do you think that because fantasy movies tend to be serious, the silliness is magnified and made more obvious?

    The goblins and ogres in this film ARE silly. I don’t honestly know how anyone keeps a straight face when they are presented. But when everything else in a film is presented so believably — aha. I wonder if it’s believability that’s the contentious issue — the sillier things can sort of be accepted.

    More fun. Yes. We are having more fun. Good for us.
