**The Hobbit Geeky Observation Lists** call for contributions!! Can't Post

If you would like to contribute to TORn's official Hobbit Geeky Observation Lists, now is the time to really get going! I've been working on the list since last year laying the foundation and making a few entries in my home files; but I've been waiting until now to ask you all to unleash your observations of what you've seen during the creative and filming process of Peter Jackson's adaptation/storytelling of The Hobbit.

If you're not sure what the Geeky Observation Lists are all about, please follow the link in my footer to see The Lord of the Rings' Geeky Observations Lists and what they entail. Essentially, during the theatrical viewings of LotR, TORn members would split at the seams (as we have for The Hobbit) talking about all they saw and heard. Every little detail was something to share or discuss. The lists are just a place to put all of those treasures.

Please keep your entries to one line if possible, but post as many as you like! These are short little notes and not a discussion of details. Don't worry about posting something someone else may have already offered. I'll sort through and get them all straightened out. I do my best to use your entries as you write them, but I may need to edit them from time-to-time. These are YOUR lists… not mine. I'm just the gatherer :)

From now until…. oh say… 2015, I'll occasionally post a call for observations here where you can feel free to add to the lists. It will really get crazy once each film is released!! *twitch* The Hobbit Discussion Board will be wild by then, so I'll ask that we keep the observations for the lists confined to my request posts… just so I make sure I don't miss anything :) I'll update the google site constantly during those busy times so you can see all the details and observations as the lists evolve.

Ready? So, here goes…


Please share any little details or observations you've made from what we've seen so far in pictures, trailers, or Peter's vlogs as they relate to what could (or will) potentially be in the films. Please specify which film you think it will be in using one of these film titles or numbers.

#1 - An Unexpected Journey
#2 - The Desolation of Smaug
#3 - There and Back Again

Each list will include:

The Main Lists of Geeky Observations, ultimately according to Chapter Title. The chapter titles will first be determined by the content of the film in relation to book chapters (here at the start of making the lists), then by the soundtrack titles for the films (usually released before each movie), then according to the DVD chapter titles (unless we're happy with the way they are :)

Then there are the "There's room for a little more" Geeky Observations Lists. These are a compilation of all the things that are spotted throughout all 3 films, but do not fall under the storyline (or plotline). Some of the LotR entries include:

Multiple duty: Cast work on more than one character
Dialogue translations
Misheard lines
Injuries
Calligraphy
Songs/music
Switched lines: Lines given from one character in the book to a different character in the film
Recurrence / repeats / parallel scenes / phrases / seeing/hearing double in LotR (Words & images repeated in the trilogy)
Homages or Likened to other films
Costumes
Cameos
Written in the Red Book of Westmarch
Inscriptions

and still to come: Weapons, Filming timelines, and Cast and Crew Credits

Thanks lots… and have fun :)

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
