Cuddly, like PB&J? [In reply to] Can't Post

I've used/have seen it used for the writing team of Philipa Boyens and Peter Jackson... admittedly though it is a bit of a send-up. Cool

Hmmm, we could make this as ridiculous as possible by turning all subject titles into very very very very very very long acronyms. Wouldn't that be fun.

Omission [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought PB&J was a creative diminutive for the writing team, but I quickly realized it left out Fran. So the first thing that popped into my head was "Kuckla, Fran and Ollie." Personally, I favor "The Coven." Peter and Fran have seemed to go out of their way in the past to avoid the M-word - "life partner" and all that - so why not refer to the trio as a double entendre for the writing team. It has a great ring to it with an appropriate sense of making hamburger out of sacred cows.

I like the look of the Hobbit and it makes sense [In reply to] Can't Post

in context with the LOTR. FOTR starts aout as a very colorful (Shire) movie that gradually gets it's colors drained out (Moria, Lothlorien). TTT and ROTK are also less saturated because the chance of success gets smaller, whereas during the epilogue/coronation the colors and hope return. The Hobbit takes place during a time, when the evil of Sauron has not yet gotten a firm hold over Middleearth, so the overall tone is still optimistic, colorfull.

Regarding the "cartoonish" look, I guess it's rather the new technique and color grading than the "abuse" of CGI, since PJ is, in contrast to George "Let's do everything in CGI, even if practical is easier, cheaper, better" Lucas, still a director who uses (and loves) his minitures (Bigatures) and real sets. Sure, a lot of creatures will be CGI, but from what I have seen in LOTR, PJ only uses CGI, if there is no alternative to it.

I think when we talk about PJ [In reply to] Can't Post

people understand that it's really PJ and his regular writing team.

Given that Fran in particular prefers to avoid the limelight, I don't think they mind credit (and blame) going to Peter.

Cartoony? [In reply to] Can't Post

The only thing I find cartoony looking is a few of the dwarves...that's it. The rest looks pretty awesome and completely non-cartoony.

Cartoony [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd say the designs of Radagast and the Great Goblin are also quite cartoony. Obviously Gandalf and all the old characters are the same design as LOTR.

But my point was about the colour scheme rather than the designs anyway.

Colour looks great ... no cartoon there for me [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't like how some movies wash out too much colour. I hope they don't wash out too much in this film and keep the colors vibrant (depending on the mood of the scene and whether it is a darker scene or not). Some movies like the Harry Potter movies and Underworld call for darker washed out looks, and that worked perfect in those movies (even much of the LOTR movies called for it). But The Hobbit movies will have a variety of subplots that will likely call for more contrast between washed out colour and more vibrant color. The scenes they have shown so far in the trailers, I find the colouring is perfect.

And it's going to be that much more awesome in 3D!!!
