desde el Hemisferio Sur [In reply to] Can't Post

Desde las mismas latitudes de Nueva Zelanda pero en la Patagonia: miles de felicitaciones Guillermo!! La Tierra Media es mágica, por ella el querido Profesor es uno de los grandes autores de la literatura universal, por ella Peter está para siempre en la historia del séptimo arte, y seguramente por ella también vas a ser una estrella más en esa constelación de genios.

Gracias por tomarte el tiempo de escribir personalmente, sólo los grandes saben que gestos en apariencia pequeños significan tanto para los demás.

Today is a day to celebrate!! Congratulations again!!

Ian Holm is the only Bilbo Baggins [In reply to] Can't Post

Ian Holm is the only Bilbo Baggins--Age? You can always digitally de-age him (as in X-men 3) or like Anthony Hopkins in Red Dragon, a 2002 prequel to Silence-1991.

Wonderful to have you here, Guillermo!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I never saw any of your films yet, but what you say about 'The Hobbit' and about the two films to come wins me over completely!...
So, I'm going to celebrate too... but inwardly only, for it's till night where i live, and I'm quite tired having woken up too early Crazy
Still, in spite of the exhaustion, I am overjoyed: thrilled, thrilled, thrilled by the prospect of the great films that are coming!!!
Thank you, thank you!...

Oooo, that's not a bad idea. [In reply to] Can't Post

The drawing was done by an NZ political cartoonist (who I suspect is also a Tolkien geek). It'll be interesting to see if he creates any cartoons of GDT - if he does, I'll post them here!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Greetings! Congratulations! Welcome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Unto Guillermo the Director, Greetings and Salutations!!

Uh, the folks here aren't insane, they're just really, *really*, really enthusiastic!Wink

Thanks for actually being here (well, virtually--you know what I mean), but have you gotten yourself in deep! Everyone and his ex-brother-in-law has an opinion (about "The Hobbit" and everything else!), and they're all going to want to tell you what they feel is the coolest, niftiest, sure-fire successful {fill-in-the-blank here}.

So, with that in mind, here are my sugestions:
1. Do cameos; they're fun, and they're your "tag" in your films;

2. Make Peter do cameos, too; he has a real knack for comedy! (see ROTK)

3. Please remember that things don't change very quickly in Middle-Earth; "fashion" is actually an 18th-Century idea, so Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves, Men-of-the-West, Istari wizards, etc. will be dressed pretty much the same way they were in FOTR, except maybe the Hobbit lasses had a different fad in ribbons or caps back in Bilbo's time, and the Elves were into different colorways for their garb;

4. WETA Digital is too cool for words, but I don't envy them having to create Smaug! They did the Cave Troll, Great Eagles, Balrog, Fell-beasts, Shelob, the Mumakil, and all the other beasts on the field at Pelennor-- and now, Smaug has to blow all those critters out of the water! And, no, I haven't a clue which actor would do a good Smaug voice!

5. If the action-figure company offers to make a Hobbit action figure of yourself, do it!

6. I like wizards; I mean, I really, *really*, really like wizards, and I really like Ian McKellen and Christopher Lee; so I think you really, *really*, really need more wizard scenes!! And my favorite wizards r-r-really need some lush Elven clothes when they're in Rivendell or Lothlorien!!

7. Does history repeat itself? CAN history repeat itself?? (can I insert photos into this post without messing it up? hope so!) (seems not; they didn't appear in preview or first post)

Would you have trusted these two guys to make a blockbuster in 1981? (...uh, maybe?)



Will you trust *these* two guys to make a blockbuster in 2010? (Heck, yes!!)



Best wishes, good luck, and all the stamina you're gonna need to pull these two balrogs out of a hat!

How do I get those photos to show up? [In reply to] Can't Post

I tried to insert two photos, as attachments, and in the body of the text using the image editor on the toolbar. What am I doing wrong?

(cute photos; okay, cute *guys* in photos) you'll get a laugh, really!
