It is in the nature of [In reply to] Can't Post

Vampires too sparkle or burst into flames in sun's light.
It is in the nature of Trolls to turn into stone when sunlight strikes them. Bo extra outside push is required.

Plus, I heard that Sauron created a SPF9000 sunblock for his battle Tolls.

So I wonder if PJ will stick close to this version of the trolls-i suppose he has to-right?

The Trolls pose from FOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

Most of the screen shots I saw were pretty obscure but this one of the Weta Collectible is pretty clear. So if PJ and Co. follow those poses we need one troll pointing down at something, one troll holding something small, one troll holding something bigger (Thorin in a sack maybe?).

As long as Gandalf is secretly prolonging the argument in hilarious fashion I'll be happy.

Good photo, [In reply to] Can't Post

but oversized. Would you mind resizing it to our guidelines in TORN 201 and reposting it?

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.

I love it [In reply to] Can't Post

when filmmakers tie their series together so expertly. It would be quite impressive to watch the troll scene in The Hobbit, then see the trolls in the exact same position in FotR. It would show that the filmmakers had great foresight and attention to detail. When filmmakers (or authors, etc) go back and tamper with their previous work to make it fit more neatly with a sequel, much of this impressiveness is lost (though the revised product may still be better that the original – for example, Tolkien's LotR-complying version of The Hobbit, complete with menacing Gollum).
