It is over. With six films, and approximately 8,754 minutes (if you count the extended editions), Peter Jackson is all done with Middle-earth.

Now we can get on with this week’s Film Face-off of Sin City versus Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which we’ll… Continue reading Film Face-off: 'Sin City' vs. 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'
