I felt that way when I saw it as a kid as well. I didn't mind Kira so much this time, but I still don't like anything about Jen - his design, (lack of) personality, or voice.

In what's probably another unpopular opinion of mine, I actually like the extended edition of The Two Towers the most. If I had to pick just one, it would be that one. I don't think the additions to...

The last time I...

The Extended Editions are the only ones I own haha. I think I last watched them sometime around 2010-2011, so they're certainly due for another viewing. Given that they run 11.5 hours together, I...

I was planning on saving the LotR films for last, but seeing just two reviews for Fellowship has already made me want to watch them sooner. Once more reviews go up, I might not be able to wait haha....

I'm interested to see the reactions to Kwaidan, and whether or not everyone's favourite and least favourite segments will line up. I hope you do like it. It has a very slow pace, and even though...

It uses more CGI than the original film does, but it is primarily puppetry and real sets and props. The visuals are great, I just wish the pacing was better. The first episode felt 3 times longer...

My roommates and I watched it when it was new, and I'm having a hard time processing that that was 6 years ago. :eek:

Around that time we also watched Face Off regularly. I remember the final...

It is actually a puppet. It looks more detailed because it's from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a prequel series on Netflix that just came out last year.

The Rohirrim theme is one of my favourite pieces of music of all time. The violins never fail to give me chills. It's a shame that The Two Towers is not as well regarded as Fellowship and RotK,...

Just watched Kiki's Delivery Service, but it'll probably be tomorrow evening or the next day before I write anything about it. I'll just say for now that it is one of the best Ghibli films I've seen....
