I'm off to see this tomorrow. I can't wait! It's been a long time coming.

People on here won't be able to tell based on my posts on this forum, but The Lord Of The Rings movies are actually my favourite trilogy of all time. (Yes... even better than that other trilogy I've spent so much time on this forum talking about).





I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Seen it. Loved it. Yey! Written a (slightly) longer review in the, weirdly enough, review thread

Now onto The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, peeps.

Brilliant little article by none-other-than Empire:~

10 Things You'll See in The Hobbit 2 & 3

Although, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Bolg mentioned in the book? My brain is not exactly functioning at the moment, so I wouldn't be surprised if I've make that up in my head.

Is he? I read it only recently and I can't remember his name cropping up. It must have just been a brief mention if it did.

"Swiftly he returned, and his wrath was redoubled, so that nothing could withstand him, and no weapon seemed to bite upon him. He scattered the bodyguard, and pulled down Bolg himself and crushed him."

Pretty sure that isn't the only mention of him, but that's the description of his death at the hands of Beorn.

A-ha, ta for that AxlReznor. Thought that Empire got it wrong saying that he wasn't in the book.

Initially I was disappointed but you're right, wouldn't feel the same in summer.

I did find it strange that they wanted to make it a summer blockbuster, it surely wouldn't have as done as well at the BO as it will in December.

How do you think they are going to do the defeating of Smaug?

Build up the part of Bard or just retool it totally, so that it is done by the dwarves?

I think an easy change would be to make it so that Bilbo steals the Arkenstone directly from the belly of Smaug, to create the opening.

Unfortunately it looks like they've took the video down - bugger. I have small compensation though, just a tiny interview with Serkis, Armitage and Nesbitt talking about Smaug.

Ta Da!

I've heard that they're making Bard a rather ambiguous character, not knowing whether he's good or bad. I don't know if that's for the sake of those who have not read the book to create a bit of intrigue. As long as they don't bugger it up like they did with Faramir - I'm still a grumpy sod about that.

Any and all decisions regarding Faramir worked perfectly

Which format is everyone buying? I'm just getting the bog-standard DVD, but will branch out for the Blu-Ray for the EE. Don, make sure you tell us how the 3D translates to the small screen.

What's the difference in special features between the dvd and Blu Ray for the theatrical cut?

No features on the DVD at all, whereas the Blu-Ray I believe that you get the production vlogs.

I will certainly let you all know. I usually find that 3D works better at home than at the cinema, so i have high hopes. I, like many, will also be buying the EE down the line.

Much appreciated, Don. As I have not the money to branch out for a 3D tele just yet

Anyway with his permission, I have taken this from Shagrat from TORn. It's in snippets taken from Chronicles II: Creatures and Characters. Some interesting little titbits:~

quote:

ORIGINAL: Shagrat, TORn

- Joe Letteri says that Gwaihir's "role in the film demands that he carry more of a performance so we had to give him more anthropomorphic dimensions than the other Eagles. It was important that we make him, and all of our creatures, much more 'alive' and capable of performance - not just action". This does mean he'll talk after all?

- Some interesting ideas about Dwarven character arcs, possibly indicating cut footage which may feature in the EE. For example, interaction between Dwalin and Nori at Bag End. Jed Brophy says: "Nori and Dwalin have an interesting relationship. When they first meet in Bag End, Dwalin thinks he can bully him, but it doesn't work that way with Nori. They have a disagreement over a chicken that Nori tries to steal off him and from there on if Dwalin catches Nori's eye, he glares at him".

- Seeming confirmation, if it were needed, that Azog's reappearance is linked to the rise of the Necromancer. "The thought of revenge upon Thorin and the final destruction of the line of the Longbeads gnawed at Azog, but he bided his time until late in the Third Age, when the emergence of the Necromancer and the commencement of Thorin's Quest to retake Erebor saw him lead a troop of hunters in a chase across Middle-earth in pursuit of the Dwarven Company".

- It appears that Grinnah, the Goblin interrogator, was intended to have a bigger role. Its mentions that "he's nasty and takes great enjoyment in whipping Thorin, which is all build-up because in the end Kili stabs him in his guts, and that had to be earned. It had to be a 'Yeah!' moment." I wouldn't say this is the case in the current version of the film. Given that Grinnah got a figure, it seems his original role was bigger. Given that we know there will be more Goblintown in the EE, it makes sense for his role to be expanded.

- When Bombur does speak, he will do so with a Northern Irish accent (or at least attempt to!).



I cannot wait for the EE! And we've not even had the release of the theatrical version yet.
