    I assumed because I just thought of it that they must exist but I haven't found anything like it yet tell me if you find these "remote finders"
    If You don't find them we can start a company and make them lol

    They exist. Not too cheap though. Keys are the main usecase. You could tape one to a remote.

    Got, a lot of the orc stuff in lotr was cgi too.

    Without further ado let me say the Hobbit part 3"Battle of the Five Armies." is well worth the wait. Prepare to be entertained. I give it FOUR stars(out of 4). I think anything else I say would be construed as a spoiler so I will just [​IMG]stifle it. It does set up a seamless blend into the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It would be great to see them in chronological order. My only regrets for LOTR is that Martin Freeman should have been cast as the original Bilbo, and I wish anyone else had played Frodo.

    My brother saw Battle of Five Armies (Hobbit) and gave it 3 stars, he felt the second movie The Desolation of Smaug was better.

    Today I saw FOXCATCHER . Performances were very good, If I didn't know who the actors were, I never would have guessed by their appearance, Steve Carell as you've never seen him before, and a Mark Ruffalo, who just didn't look like himself no matter how much staring I did. I've read that critics said Channing Tatum was great in his "breakout role," I like Channing but, I it seems like he plays the same muscle bound character somewhat shy of gray matter., I don't see what "breakout" they are speaking of.

    The movie was interesting but, slow paced to the point I felt if I nodded off I wouldn't miss anything. The movie is based on true events in John Dupont's life. I think the meager examples of how his mother spurned him, fell far short of building a case for his mental state.which ,lead him to a lengthy prison sentence. He died in jail , I believe four years ago.

    I rate it 2.5 stars, it could have been so much better if they provided more background of the major characters so . As it played I really didn't feel empathy for any of them.
