The fox! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love foxes, and especially the fox in the LOTR book! I hope PJ make amends by showing us an elegant red fox lurking about near Bilbo & co.

If not, well, PJ did pretty well on the animal department this time, nonetheless. Who can resist Radagast's hedgehogs? And with film 2, we'll also see Beorn's creatures. That will be marvellous.



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

Hmm [In reply to] Can't Post

It's near impossible to follow the book at 100% there... the best solution IMO is to just zoom in at the fox, with a suspicious look on his face.

Or they could just give the fox a monologue narrated by Morgan Freeman!

The perfect place to insert the fox would've been the scene where Sam can't sleep [In reply to] Can't Post

It could've creeped in. Merely showing it would probably have sufficed.

I think most of us decided [In reply to] Can't Post

that just a glimpse of the fox somewhere in the background would be enough for us....just as an insider nod. And we would know what he was thinking. But since PJ turned the walk to Crickhollow into a race to the Ferry, there really wasn't room even for a fox cameo. Alas....

You just listed most of my reasons as well! [In reply to] Can't Post

I do find it silly, but not TO silly, and I am a fan of silly things Smile

Also, I am a great supporter of the minority, so therefor I feel a strong urge to back you up everytime I see a purse-discussion! Wink

What about poor little minority me? [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe I am the only one in TORNdom who has come out in support of the poo. (On Raddy's head, not the poo under GG's throne.) Frown

It doesn't bother me [In reply to] Can't Post

But I'm not a poo advocate. Tongue
