and discussing The Hobbit. What do you think? Do I sense a bit of Goonies?

Why not? [In reply to] Can't Post

The production team still has Tintin stuff in their offices and wear Tintin shirts, so they're not above thinking of other film projects while doing something else. Did Spielberg have any influence on the Hobbit... PJ is open to ideas, such as Sir Ian's suggestion of filming a scene where Gandalf and child!Bilbo meet. Perhaps we'll never know.

But it's fun to know that these great men of current cinema are friends together. Especially with Cameron, who gets so much hate in some parts of the internet for being a "difficult, arrogant person".

But every word you say today
Gets twisted 'round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

More like Temple of Doom!! [In reply to] Can't Post

You can't do a film featuring rope bridges and underground caverns without looking at Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, surprisingly, one of Spielberg's more underrated movies.

Peter has a great respect for Spielberg, this we know, and their working relationship is far from over, with the prospective Tintin sequel in the next few years.

I'm sure PJ was very influenced by Speilberg [In reply to] Can't Post

But more by watching his films whilst growing up than by working with him more recently.

Mr. Bilbo [In reply to] Can't Post

A character is named Mr. Bilbo in Lincoln, the new Spielsberg's film. A wink to PJ or an historic fact? To lazy to check on the internet!

Bilbo is a real last name [In reply to] Can't Post

There was some fellow in the city I live in, who ran for a school board position a couple of years ago. Their last name was Bilbo. I remember seeing the campaign signs up around town, they made light of the last name by printing the campaign signs in some kind of LOTR fantasy inspired type face. I'm not sure if mr. Bilbo won the election or not.

There was a man.
There was a lady.
There was a Dragon Lord.

Jackson and Spielberg have a lot in common [In reply to] Can't Post

Both are self-doubt movie savants, who made home movies obsessively as kids, and understand every aspect of filmmaking from the perspective of having to do it themselves.

Jackson> Spielberg. [In reply to] Can't Post

Everything Jackson touches turns to gold.Cool

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.
