Rhudaur [In reply to] Can't Post

On one hand, I have a huge map of Middle-earth in front of me at all times, and they're quite beholden to the map even as they expound upon threads that aren't from the book.

Gandalf mentioned that the Trolls had come down from the Ettenmoors, and the high fells above Rhudaur likely are right where the Ettenmoor peaks merge with the Misty Mountains ... just south of Gundabad. All in these areas constituted Angmar.

P.J. seems to be linking in a straight line bad things like Trolls and Orcs wandering the borders near the Shire with the Nazgul revival.

Agree. I got that impression as well. [In reply to] Can't Post

And I like that idea better than an encampment of tents. Judging from the opening scenes in AUJ, Dale is close enough to Erebor for it to be the logical place for Laketown and the elves to bide.

Next blog [In reply to] Can't Post

I think the next blog will be a little sad. I imagine a portion of it will encompass the last day of the various actors shoot. I think we will probably get a lot of Ian McKellan, Martin Freeman, and Richard Armitage because of their level of involvement.

So [In reply to] Can't Post

the rumours were true.Unimpressed

Thought the vblog was underwhelming, a lot of filler, only until half of the video, do i see anything that pariticularly stands out. Despite the first few shots in the beginning.

Since we didnt see BOFA, gandalf fighting orcs in dale, is DOS stuff. How is this possible? Will Gandalf be there with the dwarves when they enter the mountain?

Thranduil is impressively sharp and regal.

Bilbo's out, again.

A lot of green screen. Unsure

We certainly see gandalf following Thrain....two scenes, two flashbacks? A bit too much, no?

The lack of howard shores music doesnt give it that sweet feeling, instead we get the trailer music. Meh.

Dwarves training was dumb and a waste of time but i guess its nonsense fun. Its just stuff i skip while i re watch this video.

Gandalf meeting Tauriel Shocked The horror!

Radagast's poo, now that i want for christmas.

A FEW Things? [In reply to] Can't Post

First Shot after PJ apologizes about CCSD..
1. Between Gandalf and Radagast is a
Mountain Troll turned to stone.(Maybe just a Statue?)

2. Thrandruil has Cuts on his Face in one shot?

3. Seems Tauriel has a private meeting with her King.

4. Bard running through Laketown implies they are under Attack?
Dropping down a rope Escape Hatch?

5. We see the Webs, but it is gunna be a SCARY Thrill
to see HOW they get Trussed up
...Hundreds of Little spiders Streaming all over them, (in 3D)
is gunna be Really Creepy with Howard's Music..

THIS is an image Bomby has been avoiding...in my mind.

MF has said... [In reply to] Can't Post

...(I think in an interview? I forgot where exactly) that he doesn't like participating in these extra behind-the-scenes type of projects. I'm pretty sure we aren't seeing more Bilbo in the vlogs because MF just isn't as comfortable with being filmed in that way & the crew is respecting that. If I can find the video where he said this, I'll post a link.

More good stuff! [In reply to] Can't Post

I enjoyed the videolog though it seemed short, maybe because PJ took up almost two minutes with his explanation about Comic-Con. Perhaps there are people who are upset about it?

This episode was about pickups so there would naturally be a lot of green screen. If I recall correctly almost all the pickups for LotR were done on sets or the back lot with green screen.

It seems to me likely that most of Martin Freemanís major stuff was shot during principal photography and some of the pickups could be fleshing out other parts of the story as needed now that weíre getting three films. Obviously Freemanís presence was still required. We know that PJ really makes his films in the editing room and always needs pickups.

Bard and Bain look good.

Thranduil looks fabulous. These movies have made me interested in the character for the first time.

I loved the dwarvicising segment, particularly Adam Brown and the colored headbands, the fat suits, the Orc. It was just so entrancingly silly! These guys always seem to be having fun though no doubt we just never see the all too human hissy fits etc. One thing I like about the LotR and Hobbit productions is that while everyone seems to work hard, they donít take it all too seriously.

I didnít notice the scene with Tauriel and Kili and had to go back and look. All we know is that they seem to be rehearsing together and I wonít worry about it until I see it on the screen.

Trailer, Empire article and videolog Ė it all looks good to me.

Lissuin - and I think one other Board member also, all as extras.

Which, in these movies, is "extra-special". Cool

I'm on the watch for a Laketown woman, in the front row of a crowd, crying...Lissuin couldn't tell us more (and she couldn't say "Laketown", but that's the assumption).

I'm looking forward to the day that their "gag orders" have ended, and they can start telling us all about their experiences! Smile

Yep [In reply to] Can't Post

He's not a big fan of participating in these or in the promo stuff for the film (which he has to do by contract). He said that in several interviews. He said for the Vblogs some times they would come by and coax him out of his trailer but that he really doesn't like doing them. Same with the press interviews when the films premiere. He's just a homebody type guy that isn't all that comfortable with doing interviews and such. He has a tendency to swear for one thing, which is tough in interview situations.

This is one reason I don't think we'll see him at a TORN oscar party. I would hope I'm wrong, but I don't see him doing it to be honest. It's really too bad because MF is a terrific actor and seems like a fun guy. I wish he felt more comfortable doing the stuff but he clearly doesn't and PJ and the crew are respecting that as much as they can I think.

Yup [In reply to] Can't Post

and he loss of their privacy is a huge sacrifice I think many, including myself, just don't fully understand. Especially when they become very sought after internationally it's very difficult for them to get private or 'down time' so I can totally get where they come from. You're right we assume because they are in the public persona so much they must like the spotlight but honestly many just want to be left alone. I know Freeman has mentioned that in more than one intervew: That he likes nothing more than to be a homebody, daddy to his kids and have some private time. That is one think they sacrifice that I completely respect.

Living in CA I see it all the time down in LA where idiotic fans go up to them and bug them in a private setting whether it's in the park with their kids, at a restaurant, on the street. I just leave them alone. I just don't like to violate that. I get it if it's a public event but on personal time, I leave them be and I wish others did as well.

Public eye is critical to their success - but it is unfair to presume that because one is a performer one abdicates all personal privacy rights. With our media saturated culture though it is a difficult line to walk.

Indeed [In reply to] Can't Post

I think MF once said that he gets it that the public stuff he has to do, but the private stuff should be private and people shouldn't bug him and his family. I agree with that. People need to see the line and not cross it. These are people with lives and families and too much media all the time means that line gets crossed more often than not I'm afraid. So I get it that they need down time. I just wish everyone would take a step back and realize that when they see them and just enjoy from a distance and not go running up for an autograph when they're in the middle of dinner with their family. God I would never do that and I have seen so many people do that over the years it just bugs me.
