No Way could I ever watch all those movies back to back. Extended versions or otherwise. That's one hell of a time commitment, even if I DID have it to spare. I love those movies, but they just wallop me emotionally. Like Cast said, they are exhausting to watch even when not in marathon form. I DO still need to show my son parts 2 and 3. We watched Fellowship a long time ago, and never got around to watching the others.
Death Proof - This was just weird. For one, it actually felt like 2 small movies played back to back, with the only thing holding them together being Stuntman Mike. It was an odd transition. The first half was better than the second by far. And not just because yummilicious Rose McGowan was in it.
Both parts dragged on for WAY too long. I as expecting more of the movie(s) to be about the girls being hunted down my a madman in a car, but instead we get endless exposition. Endless drinking which you would think would result in death by alcohol poisoning to all involved.
The second half was just plain awful. For one, i just can't stand Zoe Bell. She's a terrible actress. Then we have the crazy, cursing, obnoxious black girl, who just would not shut up. Plus, the way things go down towards the end are just so beyond belief. I understand it's supposed to be a take a weird 70's movies, but I was just shaking my head and waiting for it to end. Totally stupid.
Overall, this was a waste of time. I should have been playing Zelda.
