any thoughts [In reply to] Can't Post

on the release date of "Scene 88 - The Attack of the Killerthornbush"? Tongue

I hear NZ's carnivorous snails co-star. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a slow-moving horror.

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.

Video 6 [In reply to] Can't Post

 What a great map, I felt like I was going on a journey, to different parts of the country and the atmosphere seems to be more relaxed than previously video'd. I was just blown away by some of the actors sharing their thoughts and horsing around. It did look like Peter Armitage had a few hairy moments with the horse's mane. Great stuff.

The interaction with Sir Peter and Andy Serkis proved that this directorial relationship would work.

Not forgetting the road crew and the production team. Wow! what a workload you guys have.

Thanks to Sir Peter for sharing these videos.

Cool

Dwarves everywhere! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love it! It's great to see the cast getting along so very well, which means the on-screen chemistry should be wonderful.

Wow, this video really shows how massive the production really is. All of that scaffolding to preserve nature is inspiring.

Bombur dancing! This guy is going to steal the show!

I like Dori's ear clips.

Strath Taieri, Pelorus River...even the place names in NZ are Tolkienesque!

It's nice to see Ian McKellen on location. Glad he was able to experience it.

The Hobbit theme already gives me chills, just as much as anything from LotR.

I'm so glad they are bringing us along on this experience of a lifetime through these videos. I can't wait for all of it to come together in the theater!




Good Morning!

Why are your islands so weird? [In reply to] Can't Post

What happened to all the normal animals? Did they get eaten?

Australia, the same goes for you.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

If I'm remembering my 8th grade science class correctly (and assuming it was accurate) Australia and the islands surrounding it separated from the super-continent earlier than the others way back in time. Thus the flaura and fauna there adapted independently of the rest of the world's.

Or was that a rhetorical question? Angelic

Australia's fauna developed to be venomous. [In reply to] Can't Post

Ours developed to being slow, hippy-trippy critters.

Not sure what that says about our respective countries...

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

I was thinking that myself . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

. . . no shots of Balin.

Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,

Ok, is it just me . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

. . . or am I the only one who's a little worried about PJ?

Twice during the VLOG I saw PJ way out of breath. I'm thinking the man needs a doctor visit and a good exercise regimen.

Maybe it's just me . . .

Well, one time he was climbing that huge ramp. [In reply to] Can't Post

That would leave anyone but a marathoner out of breath, I think.

I'm a walker, so 4-5 miles to me is nothing. Watching someone huff and puff after a few tenth's of a mile down a ramp makes me worry . . .

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

I would have thought that Bilbo will still be the one behind the actual escape - coming up with a plan, stealing the keys and findings all the Dwarves. It may just be the actualy escape into the river that has been changed

He was walking up a ramp [In reply to] Can't Post

and talking. Yes, he could probably use a bit of cardio here and there, but so could I, and right now there's just not enough hours in the day. And I am not a Director/Writer/Producer of a major, very very, VERY highly anticipated, shot simultaniously, double feature movie with a budget of half a billion USD. I mean, when does this guy sleep? Or does he sleep at all?

A ramp (or any climb) makes a huge difference. [In reply to] Can't Post

On level ground, I can keep up with anybody. But stairs and inclines wipe me out.

In reference to images of Stone Street Studios on Google Maps/Earth. [In reply to] Can't Post

Noted comments and images about a set at Stone Street. This is the Stone Street Studios as shown on Google Maps in Wellington. Google Earth (the program users download to a computer) has the date of the image as March 2, 2009. Curious to find out it's use. The shipping containers seen in Google Maps Street View are very likely this very set.

On matters of cardio, factor in 1,000 meters elevation at the Turoa Ski Field over Wellington. I would be sucking wind a bit myself and I would not be alone. Tongue Blessings of safety and good health to Mr Jackson and all those involved. A lot of hard work by a lot of folks on so many different levels. Tough for me to fully appreciate.
