WWZ movie not following the story from the book is to be expected. The reason is simple: they cast Brad Pitt in the lead role, and Brad Pitt isn't capable of acting.

Agreed.

Now Zombiland....that was a flick.

The Secret of My Succe$s?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093936/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_41

I just know the german one; michael j fox calls his uncle names; 'Schwaetzer' like a guy who just talks bullshit, but does nothing.

It looks like a horror movie. Except that it's real. Which makes it even more horror-like

Unless the evil arch-villain is depicted as a geek-wannabe from the pacific northwest masquerading as a philanthropist, I can't find the movie very accurate or horrifying :)

Second Hobbit movie was highly entertaining. Doesn't matter if it followed the book well or not. I laughed lots.

I haven't seen it (the film, that is) yet.

But...

Hero finds dragon in lair.
Hero battles and conquers dragon.
Hero makes off with a pile of gold, a ring, and a Cloak of Invisibility (Tarnhelm).

Sound familiar?

It should.
Wagner: Siegfried, Act II.

vince: the Tolkien estate (which now consists entirely of hostile copyright lawyers) would like to have a word with you and this Wagner fellow.

Heh.
Ring des Nibelungen: first performance 1876
Tokien's "Ring": published 19when???

Tell the Tokien copyright-whores, MAKE MY DAY!

well, the Nibelungen itself is a century old saga, long before wagner did create an opera from it.

Well, Wagner's Ring is based on a bunch of Norse stuff well beyond the (German) Nibelungenlied.

a) the Elder Edda
b) the Volsungasaga
c) the aforementioned Nibelungenlied

The first two are the primary sources for Das Rheingold and Die Walkure.

Siegfried comes primarily from a Germanic myth the name of which escapes me.
Goetterdaemmerung is mainly drawn from the Nibelungenlied.

Curiously, in Siegfried we find both the "riddle game" and confrontation with the dragon - both are *huge* elements of the story in The Hobbit. This is *not* to accuse Tolkien of stealing from Wagner, but that they were both influenced by the common sources from which they produced their own individual "takes."

You will also find a bit of The Hobbit in Das Rheingold, specific to the "give and take" between Alberich, Wotan and Loge (Loki) where Loge tricks Alberich into using the Tarnhelm to assume the shape of a small animal whereupon Wotan captures Alberich in a net and drags him from Nibelheim up to the surface and later forces him to produce his treasure (the Rhine Gold and the Ring).

Siegfried was known for winning the fight against a dragon, and bathing in his blood making him invincible.
However, a leave fell on his shoulder thus leaving a blind spot.

ah, didn't know that.

Has anyone seen the movie 'Ridicule'? It's a French movie, but one of the best movies I've seen. Funny, yet extremely moving as well.

What the f**k is wrong with you? Nobody in their right mind goes to see a movie like that. Seriously dude, by posting a message like that you are advertising to the whole world what a moron you are. I can't believe you would admit to watching that kind of film.

(Do I get the part?)

Well, an A for effort, surely, but I'm not sure why you censored yourself on uncensored.

(Although I'm digging the irony).
