Still bothered by continuity [In reply to] Can't Post

Whats on screen is ok, but to me irrelevant and would have much preferred to begin with "a hole in the ground".

Still bothered by continuity: Comparing the 2 theaticral editions of TH an FOTR, obviously no problems, but comparing to FOTR EE theres a lot that I just can't get to fit. Frodo glances and Bilbo says it's not ready for reading. So obviously he has started the book, and we also see him write down "it began long ago", "the arkenstone" and "in a hole in the ground...". So after seeing Frodo off to meet Gandalf - why should he then go back to the book and say "where to begin..ahh yes..concerning hobbits". (that must be the timing of it since this is what he does when they cut to Frodo under the tree, "where is that boy") No matter how you cut it the extended scnes in FOTR is Bilbo starting the book, isn't it! And also when he says " where is that boy" - he knows, Frodo told him where he went. Of course he could have just forgot (like the party) but still, to me it makes it a little messy. In FOTR Bilbo also seems surpsised by gandalfs arrival - but again they just spoke about it as seen in TH. Ah. Propably reading too much into it, it just bothers me when this stuff wasn't needed. But hey - they could still fix it so the to theatricals and the two EE has logic continuity between them....
