The film is finished! Can't Post

The post production folk have been tweeting in the last three hours to say The Hobbit is finally done and dusted ... and they are all off to bed!

Didn't PJ say in the most recent video blog that the film would be finished two days before the premiere? [In reply to] Can't Post

I bet it's a relief though anyway, and I can't wait!

They all deserve some well earned rest!

Always look at the bright side of life: [In reply to] Can't Post

There will be no new travesties.

"As all things come to an end, even this story..."

Here we read of Bilbo, who is “quiet and drowsy”, that “every now and again he would open one eye” and listen to Gandalf’s tale. Is Tolkien deliberately echoing this passage in LOTR when he writes, “At that Bilbo opened an eye, almost as if he had heard … ‘You see, I am getting so sleepy’, he said.”?
- N.E. Brigand

Our baby has been born! [In reply to] Can't Post

Even though we can't claim the honour of being among his numerous parents, at least we can say we were there through the long and tumultous pregnancy, no? Shouldn't this make us his honorary godparents?

Agree [In reply to] Can't Post

It has been an interesting journey. I didn't go through it on LoTR. Didn't know this site existed then. But I was biting my fingernails when I heard it was being filmed by some guy I never heard of and was nervous when I went to the theater to see FOTR. Was pleasantly surprised and love the EE versions with all the behind the scenes stuff. Hope The Hobbit continues the tradition.

Yup and time to watch it grow [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been a fun process and a great one as well. Now, that all this is done for part 1 it's time to sit back and watch it grow as we wait to see it on the big screen.

Although I usually subscribe to the artistic sentiment that "less is more," for some reason -- when it comes to the cinematic Middle Earth -- I definitely feel that "MORE is more."

Until PJ remembers 25 more things he wants to put in before Dec. 12th! :P [In reply to] Can't Post

Remember he "wrapped" on AUJ in July, then kept filming for a week (or was it more?), and kept on shooting for RotK after the film had won the Oscar for Best Picture! Tongue

But cool that the film is finally in the can...seems like just yesterday it was December 2007 and we were first reading the announcement that PJ and Fran would produce TH and a bridge movie for release beginning in Dec. 2010! Or alternatively, that we began to wonder about a TH film adaptation in the wake of RotK in late 2003/early 2004. Or alternatively, that we began to imagine what a live-action TH movie would look like upon reading the book, however many years ago that may have been.

Only about 19 days to go/two weeks and five days until TH: AUJ hits theaters everywhere!

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Feels almost surreal. All these _years_ of waiting - and now there are only a few weeks left.

There aint gonna be one [In reply to] Can't Post

I think that all the scenes that would've been in the Extended Editions are now in the theatrical editions due to the trilogy decision. All scenes that are not in the theatrical, are probably not in it because they are deleted scenes like Arwen at Helm's Deep or Frodo becoming like Gollum.

I could be wrong though...but if there is an extended edition, I think that it will only be due to greed.

Or not [In reply to] Can't Post

X - Y = Z

Where X is the footage of good quality scenes shot; Y is the amount of footage in the theatrical editions and Z is the amount of additional footage in the extended editions

Decide if Z is sufficient without any idea of X = not very convincing.
