Quote from: Captain Jean-Luc Picard on June 09, 2007, 09:55:38 PMI care if the film has a cliffhanger, because I may not necessarily want to see the next installment. I don't want to commit to a film series. I want to watch the movies I like and skip the ones I dislike.I hated that The Lord of the Rings were one, 12-hour story. I also didn't like that Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3 are effectively a 5-hour story. Really, I prefer independent sequels that don't require you to watch the other movies in the series. That's why I love Star Wars, each movie stands on it's own. :)
Quote from: Locutus on June 11, 2007, 04:38:45 PMHow would you know you disliked the movie until you saw it?
QuoteAnd how are the Star Wars movies all stand-alone? That makes no sense. Each one, with the exception of "Star Wars" (I refuse to call it 'A New Hope') builds on the previous one.
QuoteFinally, there is absolutely no way to tell The Lord of the Rings in 2, 3, or even 5 hours.
QuoteWhile an argument could be made that it was mildly self-indulgent for theater-goers, I prefer the extended versions, because it's not always about what is blowing up next, ala Star Wars, it's the quiet character moments that make the movie(s) something beyond special for me.
QuoteWhile not preferring sequels or trilogies is perfectly acceptable (I'm trying to say I have no personal enmity one way or the other on this subject), I personally prefer epics, and if they need 2, 3, or 10 movies to do the subject matter justice, I'll be sitting there in the theater, with my pretzel, and popcorn, and Twizlers, and wheelbarrow full of Sprite to delve into the film maker's vision, hoping that the Law of Diminishing Returns does not apply to this chapter.

Quote from: Rico on June 12, 2007, 04:27:30 AMLike I say many times in a variety of threads, it's best to state your own views and move on. You will probably not be able to change another persons viewpoint. This point and counterpoint format doesn't really get you anywhere.
QuoteI would also try and go back to the main idea of this thread which was about another Star Wars film. I still think it will be a long, long time (if ever) before we see another film.
