    I know that' Honest Trailers, but holy sheet that looks painfully awful. I know that Oeter Jackson didn't want this job, and it sure looks like it.

    All the Hobbit movies were a snoozefest. Pretty much the Star Wars prequels for LOTR where they replaced all the amazing prosthetic effects with CGI.

    Hobbit's problem that it was three long installments with one film's worth of material. Battle of The 5 Armies should have been "Battle of 5 Minutes" tacked on to the end of the second film.
    GeronimoJackson high fives this.

    Detroit - Which was about the Algiers Motel incident.

    One of the more underrated movies of 2017, it was good but fell short of being great. The riot sequence at the beginning could have been done better and the final chapter kind of dragged on for too long, I think the movie as a whole would have been more effective if they didn't have the whole trial scene, I think a good epilogue instead letting us know what happened to the police involved would have been more effective. With that being said, the reason the movie was still good was because the actual Algiers Motel sequence was one of the most intense things I've seen in a movie. My other gripe with the movie was a lot of the best actors were almost criminally underused.
