Congrats Bard!! Wow. I remember when you were just a wee lad here - now you have a wee lad of your own!

And yes, the Hobbit was brilliant! I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to a second watch!

congrats. Instead of reading him LOTR at bedtime, you can tell him tales of a great golden-haired Dutchman who travelled over sea (but not sky) to wreak havoc across the provincial towns of Britain with a beauty that brought grown men to tears.

Gimli, I always forget you haven't read the books. For shame, preciousss!


Larry, nice find - you know you love spending hours on the extras, finding out exactly how they applied those hobbit feet and elf ears!

Google images has failed to find me a Happy New Year LOTR image, but found this instead, and love it!

Festive greetings, y'all, Ringers and Deadites alike!

Happy New Year, Ringers! And Deadites too I suppose.

I do intend to read LOTR this year. Honest guv'nor! I bought myself the film tie-in edition a few weeks back (I now have three versions of a book I've never read!) and The Hobbit tie-in one as well. I'll get them all done this year. I hope.

I've seen it three times on the big screen and then a couple more...erm...elsewhere. It's brilliant in every way, and I would like to turn your attention to the soundtrack as well. Oh, great casting choices too, lest I forget.

On another note: finally, Gimli, the novels! But did you by any chance happen to buy The Silmarillion too?

I've only seen it once yet but another viewing is imminent. And the soundtrack is indeed glorious but I can't wait until we get either a complete score or some proper details about the music and some of the the, possibly controversial, appearances of certain themes

Also, no Silmarillion for me yet. When (if) I do get settled into reading Middle earth and it looks like I'll actually complete the task, I'll get a copy then. I did start reading The Book of Lost Tales just before christmas, but I fear that it's not the right one to start with for an almost Tolkien novice

I think the proper order would be The Silmarillion first, then The Hobbit, and then The Lord of the Rings. Unfinished Tales (of Numenor and Middle-earth) and the Children of Hurin should also be read some time between the Silmarillion and the LotR, if possible.

About the Hobbit OST, I'm also looking forward to a possible Complete Recordings release, accompanied preferably by a booklet of lyrics in Middle-earth languages. It's fair to say that such a release is quite likely. The 2-CD Special Edition released so far is rather nice, but leaves something to be desired as far as fan desires are concerned.

On the matter of LotR themes appearing in The Hobbit OST, such as the moth/buttefly "i cemen nurua, ar i sure naina" theme, or the ones related to the Elves and to Rivendell, I was pleased to see them recur. But I found it surprising that the theme normally associated with the Ringwraiths/Minas Morgul in the LotR, if memory serves well, was also heard when Thorin charges against Azog near the end of the film. Much to my shame, I must admit I failed to recognise the lyrics this time, but I suppose they are not the same as in the LotR version. An unlikely new association perhaps, granted, but the epic power of the theme makes quite an impression nonetheless.

I think the proper reading might possibly not be right for me. Recent years have seen the amount of reading I do take a nosedive so I'm hoping starting off with an old favourite such as the Hobbit will get me in the mood to carry on with the rest of Tolkien's works.

The 2 disc soundtrack we have is indeed very good but now that I suppose we're used to the 3 hours scores in the Complete Recordings, it does leave people wanting more. But at least they had the good sense to release two hours worth of music and not 50 minutes or so that soundtracks usually get.

I loved the use of the returning LOTR themes, they almost all naturally went with the scenes they accompanied, with the exception of the Nazgul music as you mentioned. Quite annoyingly, despite it's appearance sounding a bit odd, I really liked that particular variation on the theme but it's not on the soundtrack! Doug Adams has dropped some hints as to why that specific theme was used, and it'll be fascinating over the the next 18 months as we get more information when the other two score get released.

After seeing the film again I think it's even better than I did first time. And I love the Thorin/Azog/Nazgul music even more this time, despite it's association still seeming out of place. But, and I can't believe I didn't pick up on this last time, Azog does camp out at Weathertop. An odd link to create a musical theme via, so there must be more to it than that.

Also noticed a bit of Gondor Reborn near the end of the film as Thorin hugs Bilbo. And some Fangorn too? When all the dwarves and Gandlaf are sitting at the table and Bilbo's listening from outside. That can't be right can it?

I'm really looking forward to how all of this plays out

But what may or may not be musical anomalies aside, I can't really describe just how much I love this film.

I really liked the Nazgul theme in the Thorin-Azog encounter. Art often combines elements in most unexpected ways.

Another moment from the Lord of the Rings incorporated in the Hobbit is when Radagast meets the company of Dwarves and Gandalf, shouting "Thieves! Fire! Murder!"

If you think about it, it makes little sense in the context of this meeting. This line is taken from Chapter 12 of The Hobbit, and it's actually a line of Smaug's.

Thank you everyone! I have to be a proper grown up now

Already got my girlfriends first boy reading the picture addition of the Hobbit and he watched the Fellowship of the Ring...on his own....all the way through...his only six. What a star!
