Great trilogy

And it's even better with repeated viewings. I recommend a little at-home marathon. All three movies are wonderful, but the final Ultimatum is easily the best.

Favorite Movie of 2011

I know, we've got a long way to go before awards season and the annual Oscar madness; but I've already seen (twice) my favorite movie of the year. I'm not going to defend it any more to my friends who openly loathe it (although, yes, I'll admit that the creation montage goes on a bit too long and the dinosaurs just don't work for me). But something that is otherwise so startlingly good is reason enough for me to celebrate another great movie by my favorite American director. AO Scott's review in the NY Times still says it best.
