LOST was absolutely not a reality tv show. It was a drama and it was very good really...until the end. They sort of flubbed the end, imo. Oh, that's right - you don't like whatshisname, the producer. Really, it was a very complex story and if you weren't watching it all along it didn't make much sense, because you didn't really know what was going on.


SMAUG is the most awesome thing in that movie!!! Spinning into the heavens covered in gold! Splendid!!! 

Mom and Hughy (Stepfather) Loved Lost.  Which to me was kind of surprising since I normally had to explain most shows to them....but Lost they seemed to understand and they enjoyed it.   And like you said Ray...the end was not something they liked either....flubbed is a good word compared to what Hughy called it.....

LOST passed itself off as "Reality TV" in the commercials.   That's why I said what I did.  No two ways about it, it was all acted out drama.   I binge watched the first two seasons, decided that this show wasn't what the commercials said it was, and I really didn't like it.  So I quit watching it.  I didn't forget Evangeline Lilly though.   And I don't know who the producer was, and don't care either.  The one good thing from the show, IMO, was Lilly.

The whole set of the Hobbit movies, ending with Desolation of Smaug and Battle of the Five Armies, were so visually rich and beautiful!   Smaug was so well done it was hard to hate him.   I was sad when the Black Arrow found its mark and he died.   Pity the Dragons and Humanoids couldn't find a way to get along in peace like they did in Eragon.   

Eragon.  THE BOOKS.  That was a beautiful story, and I envision that it could be made accurate to the books now.  Jackson gave Tolkien's writings such a rich reality.  I reckon he could do the same to the *BIG* story (4 book cycle) that Christopher Paolini wrote.   He started out writing Eragon as a teenager.  His folks and he chose to self promote and self publish it.   What they DID was generate enough attention that a well known publishing house offered to pick up Eragon.   However anyone chooses to interpret the various histories that exist of these events, it all resulted in Chris becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author as a teenager (19).   He wrote and Knopf published the other three books of the Inheritance Cycle too.  The movie Eragon was a flop, and the Director blamed a very tightly limited budget.  Which was $100,000,000.00 US.   Yeah.  Right.  I blame Stefen Fangmeier, that Director.   They did have a couple known actors, like Jeremy Irons and Sienna Guillory.   They did have some CGI that had to be paid for.   But c'mon, Tronjheim was a CITY all in STONE, a HUGE place under and in the flat bottom of an ancient volcano caldera so high we couldn't survive the altitude.   They did a lot of things so wrong the film should never have been named "Eragon".   It should never have been made, it was that bad.   But it SHOULD be made!   :o)

Lol...I bet it started with an 'F' though :winks: The thing is EVERYONE had their own ideas about what the end would be because it all had to resolve itself somehow. And they flat blew it. Pity.

I think her idea was that she wanted it for a birthday present to sit down and unwrap in expectation and perhaps some sense of discovery as she slid it into the player and pressed PLAY. It's got nothing to do with release dates on IMDB.

I was aware of the first, and likely confused it with the second.  Did not watch the first, I was working back then.  The ONLY thing I tried to keep up with was Star Trek: Enterprise and Voyager and DS9 back in those days around the turn of the millennia.    Turn of the Millennia.  What a phrase!  The creaking of a gigantic rusty hinged gate swinging around comes to mind with it.

I just don't care for non-science fiction and non-fantasy dramas much at all.   Most of the science type shows are ok.  Some of the history stuff is ok.  Some movies are ok.   See I'm easy to keep happy!

I would not have been interested in MANY actors long at all if I had not seen them in some sort of Sci-Fi/Fantasy show.   I got where I hated comedy shows.  Too when Jim Carey started out, I liked him.   Jeff Foxworthy, same.  Just life changes made changes in me, my thinking, my tastes.  Happens to lots of folks. 
I LIKE Sci-Fi/Fantasy so much because it takes me way way away from the problems of Life for a while.   Its also what I like about my "Art".    But, walk away from the computers and TV, and I am mostly fresh and clear for a while, at least.   Heck I might even smile a time or two!   ;o)

Is anyone still interested in Tauriel like likenesses?

It's a fine character set, great textures.  Even if you don't think it looks enough like "HER"...
