I am looking forward to the Hobbit movies very much . I only hope that them being in 3d is done in such a manner it doesn't distract from the hopefully good acting and story .

I'm dreading this movie more than any other adaption in history. My all time number one "novel," though I find the term "tale" to be more fitting.

I can dig that. It's my favourite too. I've reread it more times than I can remember.

One of my favourite things about it is the simplicity of the "tale" as you put it. It's just a simple, little adventure story. And I already fear Jackson's missed that point in his attempts to pad it out to two films and include all the White Council material.

Irrelevant. One film, one story. All that was needed...

Absolutely.

I could probably read it in less time than it takes to watch two movies.  :fpalm:
I hope, I do not wait.

if the hobbit is worth two movies then each LOTR book should have been about 4 movies. Of course that's unrealistic and unfeasible but my point is that it would seem like less of the blatant money grab it is and more like an attempt to be true to Tolkien.

frankly i think they'll be really milking the book to get 2 films out of it seeing as it's shorter than the shortest of the LOTR books.

So what's happening now, is part 1 going to be The Hobbit and part 2 what happened between the Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings (like the final part of the last story of the Silmarillion book stretched)??

No, they're both going to be mixed and both films will contain parts from both the Hobbit and the appendices.

Dumb idea in my opinion. As I've already reiterated, they should have concentrated on making one decent Hobbit movie. The tale's charm is its simplicity and lack of bloat. Stop trying to make it into The Lord of The Rings

In other news, they've been releasing pictures of all the dwarves and while most are ok (despite an absence of axes for some odd reason), I have to take offence with their interpretation of Kili (on the right)



Whatever that is, that ain't a dwarf :thumbsdown:

Nah he doesn't look very dwarfish :(
As for the axes though, that is true to the book. They all carried swords in the Hobbit.
I think it is high time for a bit of class around here, don't you?

Ha, probably. I think it's because axes and dwarves are so interconnected in my feeble brain
