I think that it is very much a personal preference as I enjoy both short and long stories, but I can very much live without the shaky-cam. It's become a naff cliche. Now if they could get people to direct true science fiction films with the skill, seriousness and gravitas of Ang Lee's direction of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" I'd be a happy camper.

It is better either to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.

    Would it be threadjacking to say that I hated that movie too? {grin}

    For an example of a movie I liked, I really liked Batman Begins, even though I hated the two or three intermediate movies (every one except the first).

      Oh no!

      I loved that movie - I felt that if the magic realism hadn't been treated correctly, it would have been laughable. As it was, it dealt very well with not only the whole mastery of one's self, it also had moments of humour but also it didn't seem to preach.

      I've not seen Batman Begins yet, so I can't comment. I quite enjoyed the first film, and bits of the others, but they lost the freshness and interest of the first one.
