I'm hoping [In reply to] Can't Post

I will be able to attend the first screen of the Hobbit at my cinema - which I presume will be at midnight? If that's the case, and my partner isn't working then I'll go with her (that's if she wants to Wink).

No doubt though my Mum will want to see it on the day of the release also, so will probably drive down and watch it again in the afternoon!

If I could have my own way, I would have an empty cinema with just myself slap-bang in the middle. Removes all chances of noise and distraction.....and probably tutting and "I'm bored" from the partner!

Edit: You missed out boyfriend...

Nostalgia [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh yes, this nostalgia is great! Brings back floods and floods of memories for me, between 2000 and onwards. My excitement levels are equal, if not higher, than they were for the trilogy!

Difficult decisions [In reply to] Can't Post

When i went to see the LOTR trilogy it was with my step dad and it became almost a tradition to do that with him which was really nice for the both of us.

Now i am obviously like everyone else that little bit older and now have a gf. She isnt really into LOTR/Middle Earth but she is willing to go and see it, to go with me. But without sounding too harsh i dont know whether i want to go with her or not if all she is going to do is ask me whats going on every 5 mins.

I think what will end up happening is i see it with both my step dad and my gf and probably my little sister so it will be more of a family thing. Where i live i doubt there will be a midnight showing but if there is i will definitely be there!

I think i will be watching it in 3d aswell, and i am contemplating whether to go to an IMAX cinema to try and get the best picture/sound but the nearest one to me is a couple hours drive i think so i dont think its realistic, haha.

Little Eruvande, the soon-to-be-11-year-old, is just as excited about TH as I am. Cool

perfect age for reading and probably watching the hobbit. [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish i was 11 years old again going into watching this movie, having just recently read the hobbit myself at that age.

At least we appreciate it more this time round [In reply to] Can't Post

We would have been the same age when the trilogy came out. I wish I was 11 again, but at least being older we can appreciate it more this time round - we can also join in with all the speculation and lead up to the films this time round Wink

That is true [In reply to] Can't Post

I think i will appreciate what is happening more now. I also think this may be the last Tolkien adaptation done during my lifetime or at least for the next substantial part of it, so i want it to be something i find amazing. Which can only make the suspense and excitement that much more intense!

With my husband and our two grown kids. In 2D. [In reply to] Can't Post

In the theater :-) And probably in 3D later. But I much prefer 2D.

We went to all the LotR movies together. My son wore chain mail, and I wore my ubiquitous elf-ear hat :-)

Oooh chain mail! [In reply to] Can't Post

Off topic, but did he wear a full suit of chain mail? I can't imagine it's very comfy to sit in for 3 and a bit hours! I never saw anyone dressed-up when I say the trilogy. Maybe the people in the UK are more boring Wink I would take my Sting....but not sure I would be allowed in! Maybe if I go to one of the first viewings of The Hobbit I will see someone

It was a shirt. [In reply to] Can't Post

He made it himself his senior year of high school, and wore it for his senior photo. It took hours and hours (and weeks and weeks), but he listened to books on tape while he made it. He called the process "Knitting with pliers." Each ring was linked with four others. Unfortunately now that he's a man he can't get into it anymore, but he still has it.

Most likely, [In reply to] Can't Post

with Mrs. D. After watching it with her, we will determine if the content is appropriate for my 7-year-old. If so, it'll be just the two of us the 2nd time around. Watching TH for Mrs. D is more of a curiousity although she will likely enjoy it. I'll watch it as many times as I can!

Initially, I had planned to take the youngster with us. After considerable thought, I don't want to provide any nightmare fodder as I suspect the movie will carry a strong PG-13 rating. He really likes Gollum though.Smile

I'll probably go by myself... [In reply to] Can't Post

Dressed as Aethelwyne Bolger like in my avatarLaugh

Although, if my sister and her exes allow, it would be fun to take my 12 year old nephew, 8 year old niece, and 5 year old nephew with me. Joey (the 12 year old) has loved LOTR most of his life, and Ariel just recently discovered cool warrior princess types (Arwen and Eowyn) she can enjoy as much or more as her disney princesses, and little Steven adores Gandalf the Grey. But not the White. When I told him The Hobbit was only Gandalf the Grey, he was very excited. Though I don't think he's ever seen a LOTR movie, just the action figures! (he thinks Galadriel is very prettyHeart)

It would be so much better than 12 years ago when I went with skeptical, jaded, and silly coworkers who gabbed and laughed through the whole FOTR! Ugh!

I would love to see that world fresh and new through their (my niece and nephews') little eyes!
ps- the child I'm "reading" to is Joey when he was just 5 and first enchanted with Middle Earth:

By myself in a crowd [In reply to] Can't Post

I am going to see it at the cinema first at the midnight premiere, but hoping to go by myself. Although some of my friends and family would be willing to support me by going along, none of them have any attachment to any of the Professor's works like I do and would unfortunately be more of a distraction—and after waiting so many years to see TH make it to the big screen I want to absorb it all! As for the crowd at the cinema, that is mostly remedied by my sitting front and center! Tongue (It is also convenient since if anyone over 4 feet tall sits in front of me, half the screen is obscured form my view, haha!)

The Hobbit movie [In reply to] Can't Post

If I can watch the movie to a theater that propose the original version (English) that's what I am gonna do if the time and opportunity allows me cause then I will have to go out of town to do that. But if that is not possible I should see it in French and wait the DVD release to watch the original version. So, I am not sure if I'll watch it once or twice but in one instance maybe I think I shall bring a member of my family with me even though they're not Tolkien LOTR fans they enjoy good movies.

I hope you're mistaken... [In reply to] Can't Post

For all the fawning over Mr Jackson's work, his is not the best that could be done of Tolkien's masterwork. And while I hope he lives to be a hundred or more, Christopher and Priscilla Tolkien will not live forever and eventually the family will open the gates to The Silmarillion.
I hope that at least some will be done in MY lifetime and I'm quite a bit older than you, but what I've read.

Chain mail is quite comfortable... [In reply to] Can't Post

because the weight is distributed well. I'll have both Glamdring and my stave when I go in full GAndyalf regalia.

Four-on-one... [In reply to] Can't Post

is a good sturdy pattern. Good thing he didn't try six-on-one though! He might STILL be knitting it! And yes, making chain mail really is knitting with pliers... and eventually gives you forearms like Popeye the sailor!Cool
