I'm pretty sure [In reply to] Can't Post

the line, 'And that's the post' is meant to be 'And that's the poster' - referencing the image of Steven (Bomber) backing into a man behind him in an inadvertantly unfortunate way...

Wink

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.

I suggest [In reply to] Can't Post

she has extra pointy ears because these are generic easy-fit ears they use for stunt doubles and not the detailed 'hours in the make-up chair' ears they use for real actors! Tongue

Stoking the Evangeline Lilly Discussion Fire.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think that's Evangeline's body/stunt double (i.e.- Ninja Girl) because her mannerism doesn't seem to match Evangeline's personality. Her lips seem different (thinner) also.

It may be worthwhile to watch Evangeline in a non-acting video (such as in an interview) to see if she gives off the same vibe.

Sorry DanielLB, to have stirred the embers to keep this discussion going ;0).

Ok... [In reply to] Can't Post

That picture makes me about 85% certain that it is not her.

Unless they have given her some really unnecessary facial (and nasal) prosthetics, I don't see those two photos as photos of the same person...

Boy I love a rumble. [In reply to] Can't Post

They show the same woman doing a stunt with ropes attached to her waist. It was a bit earlier in the Vlog. This is what pushed me toward the stunt double rather than EL herself.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

I definitely heard it as 'and that's the poster!'. Please, please could someone make a Hobbit poster out of that shot? And possibly a T-shirt? I'd buy it.

(I am also in the 'probably not Eva' camp, but I need to watch it again. It will all become clear in time, I'm sure.)

While I was kinda sore that we saw very little of the film footage aired at the Con, [In reply to] Can't Post

I still greatly enjoyed everything that I saw. Great stuff. Kept expecting Lilly Tomlin's Edith Ann to be sitting in one of Beorn's giant chairs. Lol.

Love that Peter sent a huge hello to everyone who didn't make ComicCon.

Also, we learnded some things. There can now be little doubt that the Dol Guldur timeline will conclude well befor BOFArmies, and that Gandalf WILL be present in Thranduil's war camp, as we see him standing in one of the tents during the blog. This could be misleading, but I think the hypothesis is sound.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

Ah, thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

There are always one or two lines that are hard to hear, and that was one of them. I shall make an edit. Smile

"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."

Stone giants! [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow. I think this production video is my new favorite!

Rhosgobel! I love it.

A dwarven army!

Beorn's house!

Stone giants!

I'm beside myself. This movie is going to be fantastic. My excitement for Thorin's Company is doubled by every video. PJ has really picked the best cast. The fellas really seem to get along great, and that friendship will certainly come across onscreen and make our experience that much more enjoyable.

Laugh

Dissonance [In reply to] Can't Post

My facial recognition skills are abysmal so I won't weigh in*, but I think it's interesting that people can have such certainty in such diametrically opposed opinions over a simple matter of empirical fact. Maybe they just did a really good job of making the stunt doubles look like the actors they replace? The high resolution and 3d mean they'll need to.

*I've known this at some level for a long time, but was finally able to prove it when I took this test and scored way below average. Crazy
