    So how do I know it's all a charade, you ask?

    Pick up a copy of the 1977 Rankin Bass "The Hobbit" and the 1978, Ralph Bakshi directed, "The Lord of the Rings" full feature film for comparison. Both of those were pretty awful, though the kids enjoyed them. The Goblins looked like giant bloated toads and the elves looked like goblins. In talking about his adaptation, Ralph Bakshi even mentions, ""It's not that important to me how a hobbit looks".

    I would contend if there was any time for the Tolkien family to be righteously indigent over the adaptation of JRR's work, it would have been in 1978 - however they were not only perfectly fine with what happened, they gave rights for the final movie to Bakshi and worked on making a TV serial with him.
    Hmm. I'd never thought of it that way before, but what you're saying makes a lot of sense. I'd never quite managed to grok why the Estate was so opposed to letting the Silmarillion and other movie rights go, but "we don't want to be screwed by Hollywood accounting again" is certainly a believable one. And, "we hated your adaptation" certainly sounds better than "we're greedy". (Not that I don't sympathize with anyone who's been screwed by Hollywood accounting.)

    You know i was listening too Into the west by annie lennox and now i think of it just hearing that song and picture it with The lord of the rings makes the it so hard for the hobbit too beat it for me because that song sums up the whole trilogy for me.

    The songs in LOTR doesn't match what The Hobbit is though. It's more a fun adventure than an epic sad and heroic mythological story.

    Finally saw the movie. Not quite sure what to think about it. It has a rather boring ending if you ask me..

    imo its similar to the way fellowship of the ring ended. its planned to be a trilogy i think right? so naturally the ending would be sort of a cliff hanger and somewhat confusing ending as there are going to be more movies after it.

    overall i thought it was a good movie and picked it up on dvd the other day

    Fellowship of the Ring had a far better ending and climax.

    The dragon teaser was also a massive turn off. All I saw was the part of a badly computer generated dragon head. Just the way they did the ending made it feel like a Disney movie production. I wish they had just ended it when they looked out into the distance where Lonely Mountain lays.

    I was wondering.. What does Dol Guldur have anything to do with Erebor?

    Scroll down to the "Sauron Discoverd" and "Sauron Flees to Mordor" and you'll see how they are related. Short answer is they are only really related in terms of Gandalf's plans to ensure Smaug and Sauron can't ally together.

    Apparently Sauron is going to appear at the Nattle of the Five Armies. Maybe he teams up with Sir Defiler or something?

    Ah, of course. Seems logical since Gandalf already expressed his suspicions on Sauron being there during the white council meeting.

    I *REALLY* hope not. I couldn't imagine PJ making that kind of blunder. He's done such a great job keeping true to the lore, I just cannot see him doing something so blatantly off.

    I don't know, it could work. Would make everyone whine about how the whole Necromancer thing was completely filler to make three movies if he wasn't tied into the third movie. Especially when he in the first movie is little more than foreshadowing. Sauron would have an interest in establishing his armies within Erebor.

    I was planning on buying the DVD just before PJ's livestream came online, but.. no stores open on a sunday (that planning!) had it. The newest movie they had was the latest Twilight. If I remember correctly that came out just before The Hobbit.. they should've had it ;_; Ah well, at least we have those 6 minutes, and some blogger kept me up to date throughout the whole thing.

    That would be awful The whole point of Gandalf leaving them in Mirkwood was to go deal with Sauron, after which he needs to flee to Mordor. Would be cool if they show that confrontation, in addition to the "adventures" of Bilbo and the Dwarves. But if they either don't have Gandalf leave them, or he leaves them but Sauron still shows up at the battle.... it would really mess crap up. I would be sad

    Yes! I crack up on those episodes so much. There is always a part of me saying "someone has to be telling him the answers, they just have to" but I doubt that is the case. He's crazy.

    Did he like the movie? I guess he did, because if he showed distaste of it he couldn't be riding the media for the next two movies.
