Mega M&Mstm: "Mega" ain't what it used to be. Maybe they'll come out with Giga M&Ms someday. Though they could redeem themselves somewhat with dark chocolate, I doubt they will.
Lord of the Rings Trilogy: About as good as it could be, given the limitations of time and the inerrant shallowness of moviemaking.

Like the story needed "punching up"! NOT.
