ere you go [In reply to] Can't Post

1. How did you envisage the Trolls when reading the book?

its along time ago when i had an unhindered by the film vision of what i thought a tolkien troll looked like, but it was very different. I think they were more billy goats gruff like, wider rounder, more human in a way, less capable than the film version, less funnily stupid, slower and more monstery! if that makes any sense.

2. Do they talk and walk the way you thought they
would?

the walking was fine, but i didnt ever envision their voices like they were.i wanted more other worldly. but then if i re read the book, the pj version makes alot of sense.

3. Do you have a favourite of the three? And why are they your favourite?

no, though i liked the one with the deeper voice to be more my vision.

4. How does the CGI of the Trolls compare to other characters in the film?

for me the troll scene is one of the most iconic and important in the hobbit that with gollum,great goblin,spiders barrels and smaug. botht the great goblin and trolls were quite disappointing for me compared to the brilliance of the gollums cgi.


Changes from the book

1. What is your least favourite change from the book?

the whole attack from the dwarves, a typical hollywood moment that wasnt needed. it really ruined the whole set piece for me

2. Do you think anything works better in this scene than in the book?

if i remember rightly the book version would have been slow and possibly boring if played out the same way. so i think a little a change was needed.


3. In the film, Bilbo keeps the Trolls arguing, while in the book Gandalf imitates their voices. What do you think of this change? It certainly gives Bilbo a heroic moment, but does it work any better?

id prefer if bilbo had imitated their voices, and played that role.

4. What do you think of Gandalf's stone cracking manoeuvre? Is it too similar to the Khazad-dm scene in The Fellowship of the Ring?

it is definitely a nod to that, i didnt mind.

5. If you had been the director, what one detail from the book would you have made sure to have included?

not the purse! i would have tried to have the dwarves getting captured one by one.

ive omitted purse questions as i find the subject rather annoying.



Random questions!

1. What were the Dwarves eating?

a stew/soup no?

2. What bird(s) makes the noise when Bilbo finds Fili and Kili?

was there a bird?

3. Was the farmer the Trolls had eaten Tom Bombadil, explaining his absence in The Fellowship of the Ring?

no
4. What does raw dwarf taste like?

..really?

Any other thoughts?

yes.

This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking-party.
