They did an excellent job with the character portrayal. Loved the orc king in particular!

...can't figure out how the orcs got all that wood for building all that stuff deep inside a mountain though. Must of had to import it all from a nearby forest? Seems like alot of work you could just be building inside the rock by digging. I would think it wood be quite the precious commodity since they need it for fire? Unless they found some coal or somethin?

It looks excellent from what I've seen. Think I'll hold off and grab a blu-ray when it comes out.

I hear really good things about that movie. I heard it is better than LOTR.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

I recall during my teenage years, I went home with a girlfriend and her father was pushing The Hobbit book on me to read. I took it home, read the first chapter and put it down due to boredom.

I also watched the first movie and same thing....boring.

What do you see in this? I don't get it.

It's simple. You're an emotionless, reptilian alien hybrid. I bet you hate David Icke too.

David who?

Anyway, it may be true I have reptilian alient hybrid DNA (I have no proof though), but it's a falacy to believe that reptilian/alien hybrid beings are emotionless...just look a mother crocs caring and protecting their young...just watch the movie ET and you'll see it's the complete opposite.

It's all a matter of opinion and tastes in the realm of fantasy.

I read the book and then I read it to the kids when they were littler. Also read the LOTR trilogy to them. I thought it was great stuff. chuckle.gif

It is great stuff for the KIDS, but I tried to read it as a teenager and now watch it as an adult. It just doesn't take me there.

oh they are fantastic books especially 'the lord of the rings'. Tolkien created a WHOLE WORLD with enduring themes of love, friendship and heroic deeds. His attention to detail is incredible. The characters, plots, subplots, mythology, languages - good god there has never really been anything in comparison. All of this came from one mind....I admit that women may not find the novels as compelling as men but nevertheless we are talking about a work of art comparable to the sistine chapel and even the bible.

As for the films; I enjoyed them but I wish that the trilogy of The lord of the Rings had been spread out over six films given that The Hobbit is now also a trilogy but I guess the film company couldn't take a punt on a grunt with the Hobbit as they did with The Lord of the Rings.


I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

I'm not sure I agree with this. It is most certainly not just a children's book. The themes, imagery and concepts are very dark. This is like saying Gulliver's Travels is a kid's book when in reality Swift wrote it as a indirect attack upon the British Government. One needs to really study these great works of art to truly understand them.

Oh well some women found them quite compelling. 13.gif I read everything by Tolkien. Even some really obscure stuff. He was actually inspired to write something epic after reading the Finnish national epic Kalevala (in Finnish damned.gif) and it sure as hell worked in my opinion.

Read all his stuff a long time ago.

World classics, but I'm not going to re-read any of it.

May watch this movie at home in due time.
