Let’s see…for fans of genre there isn’t all that much to pick from. Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit,” came out today, but it’s getting somewhat mediocre reviews.
That being said, I am most curious about the version that’s filmed at the faster frame rate of 48fps (frames per second), despite reading that it has caused some people to become nauseous.
I am worried less about the frame rate than that the movie is almost three hours long. Did I mention that it’s almost THREE HOURS LONG?
It’s almost more of a commitment than a movie.

I like this trailer because Guillermo Del Toro is credited as an executive producer, and as far as I know he isn’t one of those ‘executive producer in name only‘ types.
Besides, anything with his name on it instantly gets bonus points, redeemable toward thought-provoking, kick-arse cinema (in my humble opinion).
We’re introduced to Santa Claus, who I call, “Santa, the Avenger.” No, he didn’t go out and join Marvel’s group of superheroes, but there’s something about a tatted-up Santa with a Russian accent that strikes me as subversive in a very cool way.
Then there’s that Easter Bunny, who looks like he may be a few steps closer to nightmare than any I have seen short of the Twilight Zone movie. The Sandman could have been more interesting in a visual sense, and I don’t quite get what appear to be gills on the Tooth Fairy.
Other than that, very interesting.
