What are looking forward most about the movie.??? Can't Post

CoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolMyslef, am looking forward to the bonding of the dwarves in comparison to the resentment and hatred of the elves.To see that portrayed in film will be a dream come true.I read The Dwarves by Marcus Heitz and i see the Hobbit dwarves porttrayed in that vain.
They absolutely despise elves and will be cool to see the tension and conflict between the two.I love seeing territorial and historical based conflict and this movie should touch upon that.I saw in vlog 4 that the Dwarves have a true hatred for elves.It also leads me to the point of Amritage's portrayal of Thorins regal and callous Dwarf to be spot ON<! LaughLaugh It is that scene i hope is not cutout.One scne fromt he book(The Dwarves-MarcusHeitz) i love is when Boindil tells Tungdil that he is no friend of Elves,Orcs and ALfar and they will not be accepted to live around his Kin in Orgres death a name of a place of the Dwarves derived from how many Orgres/Prcs they have slain in that vacinity. it is truly gripping and intense.

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

Hmm, I don't know if I can choose just one thing. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I'm most looking forward to seeing my favorite scenes from the book on film and how they handle them. My top three probably are:

1. The Riddle game in Gollum's cave. This scared me in the cartoon as a kid and terrified me as a young teen reading the book and I really hope it give me chills in the theater.

2. Fifteen Birds in Five Fir Trees. I want scary wolf-wargs, and goblins holding a council under a full moon, followed by a good fire fight (please colored-fire pine cones, pleaseplease) and a dramatic Eagle rescue!

3. The finding of the Back Door through Bilbo's conversation with Smaug.
I am hoping for scary, mysterious, atmospheric and tense. And a really Magnificent dragon.....

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

What I am most looking forward to [In reply to] Can't Post

Is simply having it on my screen, after all these years of waiting and worry that it was never going to happen.

Everything excites me, from hearing familiar voices (Gandalf, Galadriel, Bilbo, Saruman, Elrond), to all the new characters. I'm looking forward to seeing Hobbiton again, as well as an area of Middle-Earth not yet explored. I can't wait for Gollum and Bilbo's riddle game, Bilbo and the trolls (and finding their hoard). I'm sure we are going to get epic shots and scenery, including flying eagles, Mirkwood spiders and the transformation of Beorn. I am also looking forward to the BoFA, and the devastating end it has.

There is far far far too much to decide from!

Despite my impish face, I do too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be really, really disappointed if we get those lugubrious elves again.

Ha! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, some of those elves were pretty horse-faced.

Mainly seeing good ol' Middle Earth again :) [In reply to] Can't Post

The Hobbit isn't my favorite Tolkien book - I like it, I just prefer LOTR and Silmarillion - so there aren't any particular scenes I'm looking forward to. I am just excited to see ME again, especially PJ's ME. I'm sure Del Toro would have done well, but I'm glad PJ is back at the helm so there will be more continuity.

Amen, my friend. I have no doubt that these films will also hold a special place in my heart once I see them, and who doesn't like feeling the satisfaction of something truly good?

I suppose what I'm looking most forward to though is how the dwarves will be fleshed out. Obviously they need to all have distinct personalities that were not at all present in the book, and Jackson has clearly showed his ability to make things interesting out of little. The more development, the better!

I think... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm looking forward to Elijah and Sir Ian Holm's cameos most. This is by far the most hobbit-centric tale Tolkien ever wrote/told (he first told this as a story to entertain his 4 children, after all). I've already seen that Mr Jackson will get somethings magnificently right and others magnificently wrong in adapting Tolkien so I know I'm in store for surprises, some pleasant and some not. But the one thing Mr Jackson got "most right" about his LotR adaptations were hobbits and I want this to be a continuation on that score (allusion to Howard Shore's score intended as "Concerning Hobbits" is still imo the most brilliant piece of music from an incredibly brilliant score). I want Martin Freeman to truly channel and BE a younger Sir Ian Holmes and not try to re-create Bilbo too much. Obviously characters grow with years even if they don't age, but I want to see a genuine connexion between portrayals that is my 'bridge' betwixt the works.
Finally I want to see how (or perhaps 'if', as I've not kept up with the spoilers) Mr Jackson handles the 60 years' time between the end of The Hobbit and the beginning of The Lord of the Rings. Realistically he COULD make the ENTIRE second movie about this but what I read from Quickbeam and others seems to indicate that such won't be the case and I find myself vaguely disappointed in that.
