YEAH! [In reply to] Can't Post

I absolutely loved how they included "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."
Hopefully it will be included in the movie! :D

That was just so [In reply to] Can't Post


I watched it at work (I just had to, could not, not watch it).
And I cried. At the beginning I was just all giddy and happy, hardly believing what I was seeing. But when they came to the Maori blessing. Oh my, I was totally in tears. And now, I can't watch it without crying (I don't want to disturb my colleagues again, they were really worried I got some bad news).
So I can't give any insightful comments or remarks, but it was just so amazing, so much more than I was expecting. They showed so much without giving away too much. I love it.
And when I get home I'm going to watch it with a box of tissues next to me.

Hurrah [In reply to] Can't Post

This is fantastic, shows us enough without spoiling anything. Loved Andy S in that suit.
Hope there will be lots more along the way.

Has any movie production been so generous and open at the start of filming? [In reply to] Can't Post

PJ, you wonderful, wonderful man, thank you for giving us a look inside at the making of The Hobbit. It was fantastic to see the old faces again! (Kiran! Alan Lee! Andy Sirkis!) And to see Rivendell once more...

BTW Richard *nailed* the Maori pronunciation - I though he was a local until he introduced himself.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

will these clips be coming out every week? [In reply to] Can't Post


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shal be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Less than that I find hard to believe to be honest.

King Kong was the first film he did videos for. [In reply to] Can't Post

Also known as Production Diaries. A new diary was published every 1 to 3 weeks. During post-production there was a new one almost every week I think.

Wow.wow.wow. [In reply to] Can't Post

That was amazing. I loved it all, but especially the Maori ceremony. Just beautiful.

And the very end "In a hole in the ground...". Beyond amazing.

Peter seems excited again. He said he's done a 180 on his previous feelings that he didn't want to direct. He's having fun!

I often wonder... [In reply to] Can't Post

When did he get excited again about the project( at least this high level of excitement)

I bet way back in pre-production when Guillermo was still attached; it grew up on him since then.

Totally speechless! [In reply to] Can't Post

Amazing. Simply amazing! Heart Cool

I had almost a geekgasm watching it first time. I felt exactly the same as when I first saw the the first internet preview trailer for the The Lord of The Rings.
So much to take in and just wow! *Watching it again*

I'm exactly the same [In reply to] Can't Post

I sat through the video just grinning, but at the welcoming ceremony, I welled up. No tears though

This came at just the right time, I've been feeling a bit down in the dumps and this has cheered me right up.Laugh

I watched it at work too! [In reply to] Can't Post

And cried. Usually I try to be discreet watching things like this at work but I wasn't with this. Had it on full screen and didn't even stop it when someone came to my desk with a question. Just wish there was someone here at work who cared so I could share it. At least I have you guys!
