Any relation to the books by Ursula K. LeGuin? If so, I may have to finally read them.

I want to read them...I've read the brilliant 'Left Hand of Darkness'.

Nice to see a director standing up to the studios against the overhyped fad of 3D. More often than not, the process just ruins the artistic quality of films.

I want to wait until it comes out on DVD, but I think I'm outvoted on this one.

It's a bit up in the air, whether or not we're going to see it. The fact that the same people behind the lackluster, stale Half-Blood Prince are doing this one does not bode well.

From the clips I've seen, it's very faithful to the books, which bodes very well indeed. We'll probably go over thankgiving weekend sometime.

I didn't hate 6. I think they wound up condensing it too much, but it certainly had its moments.

From what I remember, 6 was good in some ways, and very bad in others. I liked how they handled the relationship aspects, and little things like every single hallway shot involving some couple off snogging. However, the entire Half-Blood prince plot, which I would expect to be the most important part, was so completely botched.

SPOILER: Snapes all like: I'm the Half-Blood Prince and I'm all like "Why do I care?"

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Well, I've got to go change pants now. I'm glad Geoffrey Rush is in it, I think I might prefer Barbossa to Cap'n Jack as a pirate in general anyhow.
