     Reactions to the trailer overwhelmingly positive on historically-critical Tolkien site  

This is just a funny thing I noticed.

The community at theonering.com (or TORC), has historically been far more critical of Peter Jackson and the films than the TORN community.

However, I was just looking at their Movies-the Hobbit messageboard, and I found that every single poster there is quite positive about the trailer, with most absolutely loving it. One member even said, while expressing her excitement, that she felt like she was on TORN! Here's the quote:


Quote
Dang, I feel like I'm on TORN, not TORC. Someone complain already!


Clearly, she hasn't visited us lately...Smile

I looked out my window, and I saw no avian swine flying south for the winter.

Funny! Makes me think that perhaps I have been a little harsh...Shall I take one more look at the trailer?
