So it's not the idea of film adaptations you don't like... [In reply to] Can't Post

Funny, isn't it - I can't stand the Rankin Bass film. It's appalling, there isn't one thing I like about it. Whatever Peter Jackson does, for me it couldn't be worse than that.

Bakshi I quite enjoyed when I saw it (I remember dragging my mother to the cinema with me - she really didn't like it!) - until it just fizzled out mid-story. I was so disappointed by that that I've never looked at it again.

I will hold to my firm suspicion that he is filming "tie-ins" with LotR in order to create a full thematic bridge between them, releasing it in a big ultimate collection! A man can dream... But it's really not wholly unreasonable, when you think about it. Not like they actually have to create a new film.

What a rude thing to say [In reply to] Can't Post

The idea that only people who are fans of the films should be welcome to comment here is just totally an anathema to me.

I quite like the R-B Hobbit adaptation. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know that I ever saw the R-B ROTK adaptation.

And I also (mostly) like the Bakshi version.

What I don't like is the idea of making up a bunch of Middle-earth junk just to make another film. And that's the only reason I can think of for why a third film would be made, because they've done all the Tolkien material for which they have the filming rights.

Let me explain [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Absolutely anyone is welcome to discuss, whether fans of the movies or no...
2. commenting that no Hobbit movie should be made in a Hobbit movie forum is asking for trouble...just a little
3.I shouldn't have said what I said.

I doubt if there ever was a possibility of a third Hobbit film... [In reply to] Can't Post

... it was only a rumour and probably not a very realistic one. As they've already structured the adaptation for two films it would be pretty late in the day to change.

I may be losing my way in all this, it's happening so fast, but the rumour of a third film seems to have come from the suggestion that they will have lots of unused footage. that is presumably Hobbit or Dol Guldur, some straight out of the book, some made-up to fill out the story. But then there's the other quotation from Peter Jackson about wanting permission to film more next year. What he was actually quoted as saying, in the LA Times article was this:

Quote

As slight as people think the “Hobbit” novel is, compared to the “Lord of the Rings” books, we have been surprised at how rich the world is, and how many interesting themes and characters there are to explore. We are also using extensive parts of the appendices which were published at the end of “Return of the King.” This is not just ”The Hobbit” — it’s “The Hobbit” set in a much greater context of events taking place throughout Middle-earth during this period. The material is so rich. In fact only this last week or two, we’ve been talking to the studio about allowing us to shoot some additional material next year, to fully complete the story.


...whatever he meant by this, he does seem to be talking about using Tolkien material, not made-up stuff. I think.

I took it a different way [In reply to] Can't Post

That they could film some scenes to help tie in the gap between the hobbit and the lord of the rings, these could be extra scenes created for TH movie. As SA states its not like they have to create a new film.

Either way, i wouldnt want them to make up loads of scenes if they were not going to use material that they own the rights to - i.e. fan fiction. I think it would end badly as i didnt like that many of PJ's extras from LOTR.

But as we all know there isnt going to be a bridge film made, i just didnt take what was said as to me that. Again a difference of opinion with you.

I think he meant [In reply to] Can't Post

That there was so much rich backstory material they were drawing on for film 2 (like, perhaps, the history of Dale and the Iron Mountain dwarves, Azanulbizar, etc) that they now want to do more filming to flesh that material out...

My guess is that PJ's request will be granted.

I hope so.

While I originally wanted a rather pure Hobbit, with no extraneous background, my interest in seeing dwarven historical detail on screen has grown and grown.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

Someone that's a bit insensitive might, for example, tell you that you are asking for trouble. I suppose that is a form of trouble in and of itself. Wink

I hope I can speak for everyone when I say that you should feel perfectly comfortable here, and welcome to say whatever it is you want about the Hobbit films.

No, I've had my share of troubles in my life; and tribulations, what's more. Just being told I'm asking for trouble shouldn't trouble me one whit; what's more, it don't.

Thanks for your kind words, SA and Kangi.

I wouldn't be suprised if they did more filming next year. [In reply to] Can't Post

That seems like pretty standard procedure, to do pickup filming as the release date nears to fill in holes that you find as you start to put the final film together.

and actually found a real life dragon Shocked

In all seriousness ... I'm hoping for something LOTR related. The thought of additional scenes gets me a little excited ...
