Thought it was worth a post if there are any (as there seemed to be) detailed reviews or different takes we've yet to see.

That's been posted here already [In reply to] Can't Post

You do realize that that is Dark Jackal's site, don't you?

Hitherto I had not seen it. [In reply to] Can't Post

Nor do I recall there being a link to that page in the other review sections posted here, but if there is already, mine apologies. Just seeking to share what seemed like a good find. Indeed, I still deem it a very good find, I simply am not the first here to have found it. lol

This is why I thought it would be good to post all this stuff in one thread [In reply to] Can't Post

But I guess such a sticky was deemed unwanted...

I've posted the link [In reply to] Can't Post

to the blog in the "Extra interviews from Comic Con". In my thread I've added only the link to a post from the blog with a lot of video interviews. But in the same thread you will find a link to a post with a lot of cuts from internet interviews ( sorry for not making it more obvious ). If you find new interviews you could add them there so we can have only one thread with all of them :)

Here is Quint's take on the Hobbit footage. [In reply to] Can't Post

Which I haven't seen posted yet. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/57079

He also says (take with grain of salt) next week we should see a new Hobbit set report. I expect for real this time, after PJ's comments on them not being done yet. Quint thought they wanted him to hold off for a bit, but I guess this was not the case.

"There is a long road yet," said Gandalf. "But it is the last road," said Bilbo.

Who's Quint? [In reply to] Can't Post

Surprisingly, that was one of the better reports, and was very descriptive.

Confirms that Radagast has a long beard, and a big but none pointy hat. Describes a lot of the vlog for us as well! No mention of the stone giants though Unsure

Word from Quint and Ain't it Cool at last [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for the share. Love! his ref. to expecting to see Lily Tomlin (doubtless as her oft Sesame Street visiting, oversized chair sitting, ill mannered child self Edith Ann) in Beorn's house due to the oversized furnishings. lol.

Stone Giants would be CGI. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think Quint would see them.

Yeah i liked the quint report [In reply to] Can't Post

The description of Radagast was really encouraging, I was beginning to think he had no beard like Kili!

Stone giants as big as a mountain - hmm i doubt they can be that big surely?! I imagine they are rather large nevertheless.

Overall like you say a good report by Quint.

Thought you were refering to his set report. [In reply to] Can't Post

I figured that the Stone Giants would not be hanging around.

No worries [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't see you guys wondering about it to be honest, was just something that stuck out at me when reading Quints report, lol.

I read over it as the next sentence was about trolls, so I don't think I clicked [In reply to] Can't Post

These stone giants have really got me excited about The Hobbit. Attention to detail is what wins fans over Smile

Ahh I see Kangi :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Have they been confirmed to be CGI?

Beorn is a giant (of sorts, compared to the company anyway), CGI isn't necessary.

Actually, it does:


Quote
Gandalf finishes with “Good. You’ll need it” as we see bits of crazy fantasy threats, like orcs, goblins, a Stone Giant (literally a man-shaped mountain-sized figure) tossing a giant boulder at the fellowship of dwarves on a rainy mountain ridge and the trolls holding Bilbo upside down.



ETA: Oops, too many replies since last post!
