Maybe someone will get a hold if the magazine and could share what's in there :)

Brilliant - thanks... [In reply to] Can't Post

,;librarygirl, and welcome to the boards! Smile

Great comments in this article from MF and Lee Pace - of whom there is not a single photo despite his lengthy quotes, yet they found room for three of Tauriel! Crazy

Interesting new info [In reply to] Can't Post

Is that the Master of Laketown keeps them all poor and has locked up all the armaments according to Bard. I was under the impression that he was democratically elected for some reason. I guess this will come to a head when the dragon does pitch up and they don't have any way to defend themselves - cue Bard's son probably stealing the keys or something.

Meh. Think I've seen maybe 3? PR shots of Thranduil total - mostly the same one over and over.
Can only hope that's a deliberate "lock down" of sorts as with Beorn and Smaug. Anyway, Thranduil is one of the characters I can't wait to see.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

I just hope that Beorn looks better than he has so far. I really don't get why they had to go so extreme. I was think more along the lines of that big burly guy with dark hair and a beard from Popeye who was always trying to steal Olive.

Yes, the Master of Lake-town is supposed to be elected [In reply to] Can't Post

The Merchant-houses of Esgaroth are supposed to have elected the Master of Lake-town to his position. Perhaps the merchants still support him because his restrictions do not impact them as they do the commoners.

Or perhaps [In reply to] Can't Post

He was democratically elected at one point and there have not been any further elections, or he has rigged all further elections/used intimidation tactics especially as all the armaments are under lock and key.

Entirely possible [In reply to] Can't Post

That isn't in-line with Tolkien, but Jackson's view of Lake-town's mayor seems to be a bit different.

Yea [In reply to] Can't Post

It always struck me as kind of strange that no one in the books has a problem with kings who only have that position because of who their father was, but the democratically elected leader is the bad guy.

Certainly King Theoden's followers were seriously conflicted over the decisions he made while under the control of Saruman through Wormtongue. And Denethor, the Steward of Gondor, is a tragic character who has had his wisdom compromised by despair brought about through contact of Sauron through a palantir and by the death of his eldest son.

I guess so [In reply to] Can't Post

The Master seems to be the only elected official, apart from Sam etc. later in the Shire.

Trying to avoid cliche I think [In reply to] Can't Post

Guess whether folks like it or not, PJ & co. wanted to freshen stuff up - everyone was expecting Beorn to look like a lumberjack e.g. a great big hairy guy - which he is, but not like Hagrid.

Really enjoyed this article! [In reply to] Can't Post

Think this is one of the better DOS articles I've read, re the cast responses and even the layout.
