interesting interviews [In reply to] Can't Post

It's interesting that you mention this, because I've heard PJ say something similar about
the appendices in a separate interview. If I interpreted it correctly, he spoke as though
it was Tolkien's intention to include this appendices content into the Hobbit narrative,
but he just didn't get around to it. Is it exactly known that Tolkien did not
get around to a final edit, or did he write merely to give context to some of the events
taking place around the Hobbit and deliberately refrained from incorporating the
content into the Hobbit itself? I found that part interesting and was wondering
if someone might clarify.

But i've been listening to more interviews from the direction and writing, and it's real
entertaining and insightful. Yet I gather from them a particular vision for these films
that I had not entirely conceived and it seems that the trilogy is on an inexorable path
down that road. I'd imagine nobody shows up to a promotion and trashes their own film lol, but
sometimes it seems that the direction speaks one language in these interviews and the film itself
possibly speaks its diametrical opposite. Why might this be?

Why didn't they state in the credits The Movie was partly based/'inspired' by addtional material taken from LOTR and its appendices? malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 17 2013, 6:09pm

                            The 2 Chapters from the 1960's rewrite is defintitely worth reading (The History of The Hobbit is more than equal to the HOME)... malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:28pm

                        I swear just as much of the additional materil was actually taken from sources other than the appendices. malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:57pm
