Battle of Five Armies, revised [In reply to] Can't Post

Haven't we had the Battle of the Five Armies? Oz union, NZ actors, Producers, Technicians, and finally "The eagles are coming!" in flew the Warners. That, folks, was the Battle of the Five Armies!

Very, very happy here. And incredibly happy for PJ et al... I hated seeing the man looking as he looked during those infernal interviews.

New Zealand is as close to Middle-earth as you can get.

At night you can not tell if crows are black or white.

Thanks and sorry I haven't posted much over the past couple of days... [In reply to] Can't Post

...I've just felt so stressed and worried that all I could manage was reading, no writing!

And SirDennis, despite not always agreeing with some of the things you have said I have always felt that your musings and questions have been a valuable contribution to all of the talks and debates! Smile

To quote Sam Gamgee - "Oh great glory and splendour! And all my wishes have come true!" And then he (and all the host on the Field of Cormallen) wept.

YEAH!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

So happy.

I checked earlier this morning, but nothing. And then I get into work, check Facebook quickly, and the first 10+ entries are all on The Hobbit staying in NZ. I'm so happy. Haven't done a thing this morning then checking here, Facebook, reading along articles starting here and there and every where.

Well done to all the folks in NZ. Great decision from WB!
And good luck to everybody who is now going to be extremely busy with all the work (if you need a hand *hint, hint*)!

Off doing another geeky Hobbit-dance.

If you end up with a gig on TH, hopefully we can look forward to more of your insights here at TORn...

I know what you mean [In reply to] Can't Post

I am so relieved that a deal has been done - and one that isn't too outrageous in terms of just handing WBs a lump of cash. Sure $25m US isn't chickenfeed, but in the context of what was at stake - a most reasonable outcome imoSmile
