OMG I CAN'T BREATHE!!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

This was SOOOO much better than the 2nd diary and all the photos combined!!!! Whatever reservations I had about ANY of the dwarves completely evaporated when I saw them interacting and just having fun. The only thing I was TRULY disappointed in is that they don't have their coloured hoods!! I was reaaally hoping they would since WETA made that Christmas card greeting for TORn with the dwarves in their hoods, but honestly I'm not THAT bummed out.. they look so good anyway!!

I can't wait for the frame-by-frame analysis Sly Going to take screenshots on my own and analyze them for now Laugh

The hoods... [In reply to] Can't Post

if there are any, would be hanging up by the door, remember. They didn't wear them after they got inside. But I have to admit, it's looking increasingly like they may not bother with their best detachable party hoods for the movie.

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

sooo gooooood!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

This is amazing! Full walking talking dwarves, dwarves hanging out in Bag End, dwarves everywhere! A bit of a song. John Rhys-Davies (I cheered aloud when I saw him) on set. Bombur is fantastic! I actually laughed pretty hard when he was singing the song. I am starting to love the casting. So happy that I have this to look forward to. It's going to be bitter-sweet when it's all done and the Blu-ray is released and all the extra features have been watched. I don't even want to think about that! So much to look forward to now!

Colored Hoods [In reply to] Can't Post

If I'm not mistaken don't they hang their hoods up by the door when they walk in? They could still have their colored hoods. I have actually been thinking, maybe it's raining when they show up and they usually don't wear the hoods. I'd like to hope there is still a chance they make it in.

Jackson is looking more and more hobbity [In reply to] Can't Post

...and I have no problem with that. Did anyone else notice the shorts? During the filming of LOTR he wore nothing but, but now it seems you rarely catch him in shorts.

The Dwarves are wonderful, much better seeing them in action.

Did we see Figwit at Rivendell?

The colors certainly looked more saturated to me in this video [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know if the photographs washed them out or the video overemphasized them, but I hope they're as bright in the theater!

Bombur is wearing the correct hood [In reply to] Can't Post

Since there is talk about the hoods, I did notice at 3:14 in the video, Bombur is wearing his pale green hood described in the books.

I thought so... [In reply to] Can't Post

particularly in the shot with their scale doubles. I noticed a blue grey, magenta, green...all much more pronounced to my eye. BTW I think this is a good thing.

They seem to be incorporating the hoods into other garments [In reply to] Can't Post

No detachable hoods here (except for Ori). Instead, the hoods we've seen have been part of cloaks and shirts. I guess they won't be sweeping them off their heads when they bow or they'll strangle themselves! Tongue

Oh yes [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw that too and that's what actually reminded me about the hoods. But throughout the video, we see the dwarves in Trollshaw, when they were testing themselves out full in costume in front of the camera, and I've yet to notice any form of detachable coloured hoods. Of course, they might just not be wearing them for whatever reasons... or maybe they're given hoods in Rivendell (reminiscent of Lothlorien gift-giving scene)...highly unlikely, but that's just me grasping at straws trying to come up with excuses and I don't think they'll have their hoods at all Unimpressed If they do have any sort of coloured hoods, it'll just be the few with coloured cloaks (but I could live with that!).

Those bags are stand-ins. [In reply to] Can't Post

They all just go after the big bag, and then the trolls will be inserted later, and they'll most likely be moving around knocking dwarves around.

Seems like it [In reply to] Can't Post

Whatever route they take, as long as the dwarves get some kind of coloured hood, I won't complain!

I don't know why I'm so nit-picky about these hoods.. I'm usually not like this. I guess it's just that I read The Hobbit when I was little, and the only thing I could recall some years later was the colorful dwarves and a dragon!

They're attacking [In reply to] Can't Post

stand-in troll legs held up by prop people in black costumes. Presumably both the fake troll legs and the people holding them will be edited out and replaced with CGI troll legs for those scenes.

The dwarves don't just sing.... [In reply to] Can't Post

they also play their instruments. At about 13:25 8:30 you can see Dwalin with a fiddle and Bofur with either a flute or clarinet. Smile

Lindir/Figwet [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree. In the Rivendell scene, there is another elf walking from right to left and it appears to be figwet/Lindir.

I tried to see the colored cloaks, but couldn't.

I loved seeing Christopher Lee in the end and I can't be more grateful to PJ and company for keeping my hopes so high. Opening day, ya that'll be a day I take off from work.

Bifur still has that stupid thing in his head. Frown

Bilbo is wearing the same outfit as in the LOTR film... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm going from memory, but he is appears to be wearing the same jacket, shirt and pants that Ian Holm wore in Gollum's cave. Even his hair appears to have the same disheveled look as Ian Holm's did in the FOTR scene. If so, this is an elegant way to maintain continuity with the previous films.
