Well...if they're going to put him standing on Balin's tomb, that makes sitting on the Stewards' Chair a little tame, doesn't it?

Gimli's pretty immature and disrespectful throughout the...

Why not just take the question at face value and try to sincerely answer it? There's no need to launch into ad hominem and straw man. The guy doesn't like the movies as much as you and I do; give...

Think carefully before saying something is "logically impossible"; that's a rather large phrase...

Wish I had seen the film or read the books so I could contribute to this thread. For what it's worth, I will say, as a Christian whom most would describe as a "right-wing fundamentalist", that I...

I think, too, that there is a wide range of opinion regarding how realistic Gollum looks on screen. Bethberry describes him as "a cartoon character", and other Downers have similar views. Again,...

Well, returning after a long hiatus, I see there have been about two posts relating to Hobbit-movie news in this thread. Ah well, can't say I'm that surprised or even that disappointed, really. ...

Well, for me this one is easy. No.
For all the grousing about Jackson's propensity for CG, I think he would have done a live-performance Gollum if he thought it were at all workable. Do we get how...

Pipe Inching closer to The Hobbit film

Well, what do you know? Seems that New Line's fairly interested in making a billion bucks. Entertainment Weekly's cover story reports on the slow reversal of Bob Shaye and Minions as they...

The list price is $74.98, which amazingly is the same as TTT:CR (EDIT: I say amazingly because TTT has one fewer CD). If you're interested in preordering, you might check out moviemusic.com, which...

Interesting discussion (and I guess I posted in it once upon a time), though I'm not sure it's going anywhere. Incidentally, davem, your quote from the JRRT Letter at the end of page 1 made me...

ROTK will be the best of the bunch, I'm certain. It builds upon FOTR and TTT to reach a height that would have otherwise been unattainable. I shiver thinking about the final development and...

Well, I wouldn't say it missed nearly all of the crucial cues, but yeah, an OST-sized album is going to miss a lot of significant stuff. Especially when it's Howard Shore's Return of the King.

For me, well, I'm suckered, I'm hooked, to use words from previous posts.

I get to have my cake and eat it, as far as the films go: My love for the books makes the movies seem that much richer...

I enjoy the Vivendi FOTR game, and have in fact been playing through it again just for fun recently. It features some pretty rich landscapes, solid character models, and a faithfulness to the book...

I believe these will be the theatrical versions. TNT has shown them several times in the past, but the extended versions have never (to my knowledge) been released to television.

Excellent rebuttal, StW. It is indeed true that a bad film can generate huge revenue or rave reviews, but both at once?

I think it's sad in a way that we Downers don't get to watch the films...

I don't think the weakening of Frodo had anything to do with the weakening of other characters; it was more of an across-the-board decision made by the filmmakers to go for more complexity and thus...

In addition to the above-stated stuff, JRRT's stuff is in a larger font than CT's. The exception to this is in The History of Galadriel and Celeborn, where the font sizes are vice versa. I believe...

It's at least worth a debate, anyway. Just be careful not to fall off topic about whether LOTR was indeed shown to be a "filmable" book, which is another thread in itself.

I don't know that I would call it an insult to Tolkien. He appears to have deeply regretted (in later life) the "childish" tone, and, of course, as StW has pointed out and as we're currently...

Well, I don't think the word "spell" would come into play even if PJ gave us a Hobbit that did have cockney trolls and tralalalalling elves.
