    Well, we knew it was going to take something pretty special to knock off THE HOBBIT...

    I see Janice's point, unfortunately. People with blood lust go to movies like this and sometimes, they want to be part of the killing to feel special. I'd like to see a trend to less gore/murders in films. When did torturing/killing innocent people get to be entertainment?
