Our Thanks to you [In reply to] Can't Post

You are a good man, Sir Guillermo, and I, like many, am greatly appreciative of your consideration and generous input on these forums.

Great news [In reply to] Can't Post

Great to hear some solid (though still changing) news.

This puts some fears at ease even though we know to only trust the news when you know the source.

Thank you for your candor [In reply to] Can't Post

I especially like this: "So, don't etch this in stone or anything we both have said in the past, in stone since we communicate what we can when the window of exposure to the press and fans happens."

And, isn't it amazing how much a supplied word like "only" can make such a difference?

Thank you Santa, for our first Christmas present! [In reply to] Can't Post

I feel as if I've just trekked through the Wild and arrived in Rivendell. There's a long road a many adventures ahead, but this is a wonderful place to rest for a while. I won't be too greedy and ask for more. Instead I wish you a very Merry and Restful Christmas and a Happy and Inspired New Year.

And the same to all of you TOR.niacs. Its been great reading and chatting with you this year.

*Phew* [In reply to] Can't Post

Many, many thanks for taking the time out from your crazy schedule to stop in here and reassure us that all is well. Things were seriously starting to get squirrely around here, and yours was the voice I was waiting and hoping for.

With Peter seemingly as "semi-official spokesman" for TH in the past few days, I didn't think you would take the time to come on here and talk to us...I consider it "above and beyond the call of duty", SIrSmile

So glad to know that there is no studo strife (yes, I was one of those worrying about this), and learning that they reacted with "great delight" to the script for Film 1 has filled me with same, and left a HUGE smile on my face I'll carry around the rest of the weekend...

Smaug...ani tests....Dwarven gear...ah, YESSSSCool. Warms the cockles of my heart, it does!

And I just want to close with this: considering James Cameron's useage of Peter's "Render Farm" computer to create the apparent wonder that is Pandora (Almas, you lucky thing, getting to go to an early screening? I go next Saturday), ...you will have your work cut out for Smaug. But I have no doubt, that come 3 yrs from now, Mr. Cameron may have to look to his laurels...Smaug, I hope, will put the Nav'i in the dust. Cool
(I wish you could share your reaction to "Avatar" here with us, if you get around to seeing it, but you will probably be too busy to post...but that's OK...but seeing as a lot of us are huge Cameron fans to begin with, it would be great to know).

Take care and I echo everyone else: enjoy your Holidays, take some time out to relax if possible, and God bless.
You are a true gentleman, Sir!

What did I miss? Ah geez [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank God the voice of reason found a spare moment! We were all getting a little testy, that's for sure.

Everything in its right place, again.

Thanks for the info! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd like to chime in with everyone else here, and say thank for taking the time out of your busy schedule to dispel some of the misinformation and rumours that have been bandying about the press of late! Wink So glad to hear that Andy will be coming back as Gollum and Hugo as Elrond, I just couldn't image anyone else playing thoughs roles!!

But I'm intrigued about how you intend to inject Galadriel in to the movie, there's been talk about including a 'white council' scene, I guess we'll have to wait and see!?

Listen. Strange women lying in ponds, distributing swords, is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!

I hope you all realize ... [In reply to] Can't Post

... how fortunate we are to get news straight from the man himself!

(Imagine if Peter Jackson had popped into TORN back in the day to dispel rumors, give us quick updates, and engage in a bit of discussion....)

What a beautiful thing to do! [In reply to] Can't Post

There is not much to add to the praise that has already been posted here, but I think this post proves once again what a caring, dedicated and understanding artist you are, Mr. Del Toro. There are so few filmmakers who can truly relate to film fans, but you are surely one of them. How lucky we Tolkien afficionadoes are to have you as our director! Good luck with the project - may all turn out for the best! We are waiting, anxiously but not impatiently...

Thank you for stopping by [In reply to] Can't Post

and giving us all these tasty little tidbits! It is even more appreciated as we all know how terribly busy you are.
Hopefully you will be able to have a few quiet days with your family over the holidays before your crazy schedule is taking over again! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.

A Holiday Wish for the Year [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been a whole year of Hobbit mystery. We've learned a great deal. Just not what we think we wanted to know. Confirmation and renewal is natural at this time of year. So, I remembered another NZ Hobbit Adventure that I had and will pass it on to you. I too traveled a long way to visit Middle Earth and wondered if I had done the right thing. So here I was, standing on the Old Forest Road on Mt. Victoria gazing at Frodo's hiding place and fearing I had made a mistake. As I looked about the woodland and recognized the place where the Hobbits tumbled down the hillside and escaped Farmer Maggott I realized with a laugh that I wanted a Sign. Something that would justify my travels. With a shake of my head I turned to go. And my little wry laugh turned into a joyous roar of laughter that started at my toes and bent me over.......MUSHROOMS...

The littlest thing can confirm and renew our determination. When mixed with joy and humor our lives are full indeed. Thanks for your efforts and Happy Holidays!
