(56 children) Connery had a good reason. He was offered Gandalf in LOTR, which he turned down because he said he didn't understand it. Then it ended up being on of the biggest movie franchises in history. The very next time something "like that" crossed in front of him, he took it. That thing was the comic book movie adaptation of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen which he said was one of the dumbest movies he's ever made (keep in mind, he's pitting that up against Zardoz) With that in mind he said he no longer understood what was going on and he'd prefer to retire and not ruin his own legacy. http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2n09s1/angelina_jolie_confirms_retirement_ive_never/

  (0 children) I'm pretty sure im going to tear a bit when the movie ends....It seems a whole chapter is closing for me,i feel like ive grown with this franchise. One of my first memories is going to the cinema for the first time with my father to see The Fellowship,i was 10 and we sat in the first row because the theater was full,i will never forget that feeling. http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2n34om/the_hobbit_the_battle_of_the_five_armies_billy/

by D4rkmatt3r Even though they're much older, the CGI seems so much more realistic. Just thought I would ask. Edit - My question has mostly been answered, thank you to everyone who took the time to explain the many possibilities and probabilities that make the 2 series seem so...different :) http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2n2sgx/why_do_the_lotr_movies_look_so_much_better_than/

Official Discussion - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 [SPOILERS]

  (5 children) As a child of the 70s and 80s who owned a shitload of Star Wars toys, I think that honestly, the answers are pretty simple (and pretty juvenile). When the film was first launched and Fett was debuted, and when his action figure first came out, there were a few things that gave him appeal to kids of that generation - the primary audience. Firstly, he had a cool name - Boba Fett (seriously, that name just flows nicely, and kids loved saying it). Secondly, he (and his action figure) had an awesome outfit with cool attachments, which elevated his apparent coolness to the target audience. Thirdly, in the film, he was not particularly afraid of Vader or intimidated by him, making him seem like a bit of a bad ass, and finally, he was a "bounty hunter" (a seemingly cool occupation), and that is what sold the character as being "appealing". Like you and /u/corellian86 pointed out though, he really was an on-screen flop, and it is kinda funny how Lucas desperately tried to capitalize on those earlier marketing points and bring him back as a tough guy in the later films. http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2n1uh3/in_starwars_ep_v_you_can_actually_see_boba_fett/
