What is that thing [In reply to] Can't Post

What is that thing watching them in the Trollshaw scene? Is it even an animal or just an oddly-shaped log or something?

And further confirmation that the film ends where (pretty much) everyone expects.

Edit: It is a troll; in sort of an odd position. All 3 of them are there.

Look again to the left of that thing - they are trolls. Bert and company!

Holy spoiler-ific! [In reply to] Can't Post

Couple things:

Elrond examining Sting.

There is a barrel-rider at the far far right, ahead of the 13 dwarfs poking out of barrels.

Goblins? [In reply to] Can't Post

Conspicuously absent is anything related to the goblin capture. Even in the fifteen birds shot, we only see (lupine!) wargs.

Bridge [In reply to] Can't Post

If that bridge at the end leads to the elvenking's halls, all 13 dwarves are crossing it together. Well; all 13 are crossing it together even if it leads somewhere else. Smile

Thank you for posting [In reply to] Can't Post

This looks awesome! I think this would make an incredible poster! Did notice as others pointed out the absence of the orcs/goblins. So epic though!

Heads Up: You can use control + to enlarge the image on your screen [In reply to] Can't Post

For those that are going 'hun?'

hold your control button down and hit the key with + and = symbols on them. For Mac it's Command +.


I always want things bigger!

As I was examing the picture... [In reply to] Can't Post

...I was wondering why they couldn't just provide a higher resolution-picture, instead of going with the magnifying glass.

That's before I noticed the scroll bar underneath, and that there was more to the picture Laugh

Observations, from left to right:
Ori eating a sallad.
Best shot of Thorin's pre-Orcrist sword yet.
Heads poking out of the bags. in's head looks to be close enough to the pot for his hair to catch fire.
Dwarves walking up a hill; The Hobbit-equivalent of this?
Wolf-wargs, not hyena-wargs.
Gandalf and Beorn (also, eagles). Amazing. The locks of hair hanging in front of Beorn's ears somehow gives a slightly human appearance.
Thirteen dwarves crossing a bridge. The order of the scenes suggests that it might be the bridge to Thranduil's Halls.
Thirteen dwarves popping out of their barrels, Bilbo hanging on to his. Somehow, even in this position, Thorin manages to look composed and regal.
The Lonely Mountain, just below the "y" in "An unexpected journey"?

Very intriguing [In reply to] Can't Post

and epic. Beorn, Gandalf, and the eagles really know how to create an electrifying scene.

Thanks for this [In reply to] Can't Post

Great to see Beorn at last, and I like the look of the new wargs. They're much similar to the wargs that I imagined.
Still desperate to see Radagast, though!

psst to Radagast-Aiwendil [In reply to] Can't Post

I think you're hitting 'reply' to the last post you see in flat mode. The thing is, that's not the person you're actually 'talking' to necessarily. For example, you said 'Thanks for this' to my post (me) but surely you meant to thank Carne. To do that, you should really hit reply to his post. (especially since the post you replied to offered nothing much to thank anyone for! I made a mistake and was retracting a statement.)

It may seem pointless if you only read in flat mode but lots of us read in threaded mode which shows sub-threads of distinct conversations. For those of us who read in threaded mode, a misplaced reply can get confusing. The best way to see the difference is to find the button on the top right of the page that says either "View Flat Mode" or "View Threaded Mode". Clicking it will let you see the 'other' way of showing the thread.

cheers. :-)

I can tell you why [In reply to] Can't Post

Reason #1 which is a small percentage of the reason (imo): it's fun. More fun than just a picture or series of pictures.

Reason #2 which is a larger percentage of the reason (imo): it's much harder for other sites to grab the images and post them on their blog/site.

maybe not a lot harder though... I've already captured the entire scroll. :-)

However, it's possible that the magnifying glass provide a better resolution of the image in a larger size than my enlarging the image as captured. If that makes sense.

That's because [In reply to] Can't Post

The artist (or PJ and company) opted to show us Gollum's cave to represent that part in the story, rather than the Goblin fight. I wouldn't worry about it. That sequence is in!

Gandalf with Glamdring... [In reply to] Can't Post

Does it mean anything that Gandalf has Glamdring at the beginning of the scroll there, in the Shire?

Or is it more likely that the artist just pulled a shot from somewhere else in the story?

I'm not so sure, as the shot of Thorin pre-troll's cave appropriately shows him with his pre-Orcrist sword...

Barrel and costumes [In reply to] Can't Post

Notice the dwarves are all wearing their normal clothes in those barrels. Artistic license for the poster I think since we know they are down to tunics in the vlogs.
