I'm kind of in the same boat. I like Red October, but haven't seen Crimson Tide yet.Crimson Tide- This is one of those movies I wanted to see, and I've been meaning to see, for... y'know... the last 25 years. I've been busy.
It was good. It doesn't beat Hunt for Red October in my book, but it was good.
I have high hopes for the idea of the Amazon show, and very very low expectations for the reality of it.I watched the Rankin Bass animated "Return of the King" The songs are so etched in my brain that I watch it at least yearly. In many ways I like it better than the movie. I just never understood why nobody has ever tackled an accurate version of this as an animated series. I know the Amazon one is going to add so much drama to it that the end result becomes flawed.
My old band used to open our shows with that. It is the opening to one of our most popular songs...people went berserk for it. When on tour ( especially in europe) people used to jump up onstage just to sing the left right parts...good times.I have high hopes for the idea of the Amazon show, and very very low expectations for the reality of it.
I would love to see a new animated version of the whole saga, Hobbit to ROTK. And in a proper 'real' style of animation, none of this stylized crap that's so popular.
And I'd like to thank you, for this being stuck in my head, for the next six days at least.
