I can't believe it's all over ... [In reply to] Can't Post

Well ... not for them. They've still got to make the film, but how sad that the final scene *ever* in Peter Jackson's Middle-earth has now been completed.

Big congratulations to everyone involved. Thanks for everything.

The first image is labelled as "Thorin fight" (can be seen on the camera) wonder if this from the Bo5A against Azog or Bolg.


Well, if I'm not mistaken, that's Manu Bennett in the green balaclava in the so-called "last shot".

Which tells us everything we need to know...

Yes, the part about the music is interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

Whatever you think of his movies, you have to admit that PJ is just great to the fans of those movies. What a gift! I was too tired to stay up last night to read the whole thing but it was fascinating.

About the music, PJ goes on to say:

The score for Film 2 is going to be terrific. Last year, we were a little frustrated because we had to revisit so many of the LotR themes - The Shire, Rivendell, Galadriel, Gollum, and the Ring - we did this because I'm wanting these 3 Hobbit movies to have great unity with the Rings films in design, wardrobe, story and music, so it meant "An Unexpected Journey" had to acknowledge what had gone before.

This is how I see AUJ and probably its sequels, not so much as conventional prequels to PJs LotR but almost as continuations, though not literally of course. AUJ starts just hours before FotR began and its action takes place well in the past, but it is a look back from the time of LotR. So the intro with Bilbo and Frodo was absolutely necessary as was, I suppose, the LotR music and other nods to the trilogy. Other approaches could have been taken but PJ chose to tie AUJ to its predecessors in this fashion. I like it.

Though I love the film score as it is and was happy to revisit the old themes, I rather prefer the soundtrack CD. I hope that the score of DoS and its original soundtrack are more in sync.

Do you mean the shot where it appears thorin is kneeling over an actor with the green screen on him? [In reply to] Can't Post

Because this would mean azog is killed by thorin, who is killed by bolg who Is killed by beorn

Hmm. It's possible, obviously, but if I had to bet I'd still put my money on Bennett...

Doesn't seem to have quite a protruding enough jaw for Stevens

Like the one for ROTK with PJ just doing the same shot over and over again, obviously not wanting it to end.

The Green Tint [In reply to] Can't Post

And yet PJ's fanboys would continue to say that Peter Jackson doesn't have one moment to spare to personally address the issue of The Green Tint in the FOTR EE Blu-ray indiscriminately laid on top of the entire film - apart from the separate matter of the new color grading - and admit there was a mistake.

Peter and Warner Brothers - what are you hiding from, and why?
