Perhaps, but only because I am REALLY, UNBELIEVABLY looking forward to it. :-) While it does come out on the 18th, I count days until I will see it. So for me, it's ten more days. I have no suspense this time about how the movie will be. I know that it will be great because the first was so good and the continuity of scene shooting guarantees consistent quality. Predictions: 1.) It won't make as much money as the first one did (but will still make lots). 2.) It won't receive as much acclaim as a movie in and of itself as the first one did. It will very clearly be seen as the continuation of the movie and very incomplete on its own. No one will mind that, of course, knowing what to expect. Of course, the one year wait for the completion will just about kill the fans. 3.) When all three movies are completed, the opus will considered one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time. It will be a standard against which all other directors' works will be judged. Maybe no one will ever attempt anything like it again. It will be considered a wonderful work of art that has substantially increased the value of the great body of work done over time. It will be canonical. The complete set of the extended versions will be a must have and no other series of movies will come close to the total movie experience. Not even the first three Star Wars movies. 4.) After next year's third installation, there will be some theatres that will hold near continuous showings of the "whole" movie (i.e. all three) as one movie. That will be about nine hours. Perhaps people will be able to pay for portions of the show. ========= Mark Gregson [EMAIL PROTECTED] ========= -- _______________________________________________ Get your free email from http://mymail.operamail.com Powered by Outblaze ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /// ZION LIST CHARTER: Please read it at /// /// http://www.zionsbest.com/charter.html /// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ==^================================================================ This email was sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org EASY UNSUBSCRIBE click here: http://topica.com/u/?aaP9AU.bWix1n.YXJjaGl2 Or send an email to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] T O P I C A -- Register now to manage your mail! http://www.topica.com/partner/tag02/register ==^================================================================
