Peter Jackson and the Hobbit.... Can't Post

AS MUCH AS I LOVED TLOTR MOVIES AND, AS MUCH AS I LOVED READING THE BOOKS(AMONGST THE TOP OF ALL MY FAVORITE READINGS), PETER JACKSON (P.J.)TOOK TOO MANY LIBERTIES-ASTRAYING TOO MANY TIMES FROM THE BOOK. I KNOW THE REASONS WHY MANY WOULD SAY "THATS WHAT DIRECTORS DO" OR "THEY HAVE TO DO SO". I DO STUDY MOVIES AND AM STUDYING WRITING SCREENPLAYS. NOT THAT THIS SHOULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT IN JUDGING ANYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING FILMS. BUT, P.J., WAS TOO ARROGANT AND SELF CENTERED IN DOING "TLOTR". I'VE READ THE SILMARILLION, THE HOBBIT, TLOTR, THE MANY UNFINISHED TALES AND THE SHORT STORIES BOOK MANY TIMES OVER (INCLUDING THE MAPS OF MIDDLE EARTH)...A MOVIE OF THE SAME BACKGROUND CAN BE DONE WITOUT THE SAME ACTORS. THE HOBBIT TOOK PLACE SOME FIFTY YEARS BFORE TLOTR.

YES I AM WITH YOU ON THIS [In reply to] Can't Post

DID YOU SEE THE MOVIES MORE THAN ONCE? I DID THEY WERE SO COOL. A FRIEND OF MINE WHO'S NOT HERE ANYMORE NOTICED THAT SOME ONE I DON'T KNOW WHO, MAYBE A ROHAN IT WAS, WAS RIDING BEHIND EOWYN IN THE OLIPHAUNT SCENE AND CUT OFF THREE ORCS HEADS WITH one swipe of the blade! THAT SOUNDS SO COOL I DON'T KNOW WHY I CAN'T FIND IT WHEN I LOOK AT THE VIDEOTAPE. BUT IT MUST BE SO CAUSE JACKSON IS THAT KIND OF DIRECTOR. FERSHUR.

AND THE EASTERLINGS! HAVE WE TALKED ABOUT THEM? I KNOW YOU LOVE THEM BECAUSE OF THE ALL CAPS! I LOVE THE EASTERLINGS! YAY! I JUST WISH IT WAS EASIER TO TELL THEM FROM THE SOUTHRONS, ALTHOUGH WITH THE DUNLENDINGS IT'S NO PROBLEM OF COURSE. THAT'S BECAUSE OF PETER JACKSON.

THE HOBBIT WILL ROCK! I THINK THE LOVELY PHIL SHOULD DIRECT SHE IS SO SWEET I AM ALWAYS IN LOVE WITH HER.

Welcome to Torn, where we do in fact have some traditions that come into our line of thinking. Cool

I see you've had a couple mild requests to not post in all caps from members as well as a Board Administrator (Ataahua, above), who posted a link to the Torn FAQs for a reference to our tradition of netiquette, specifically:

10. We practice general rules of "netiquette" here, including NOT POSTING IN ALL CAPS (it's considered shouting)

So, at such an impasse I'd suggest that it's not Torn who needs to "accept it".

Just a thought.

glad to hear it! and welcome to Torn, where [In reply to] Can't Post

you will find some really wonderful people and some of the best Tolkien-related conversations anywhere. You might want to sit back and read a few of the recent entries on all the boards, at first, to get a sort of feel for the culture of the board in general and what kinds of conversations go on in the different forums.

Just another thought!

Cool

Your explicative expletive is most profoundatory. [In reply to] Can't Post

Although i'd wish you would speak up. I cannot hear you. *puts on earphones over eyes*

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

A myth is far truer than a history, for a history only gives a story of the shadows, whereas a myth gives a story of the substances that cast the shadows.~Annie Besant
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole, and once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

LOLOL! [In reply to] Can't Post

Brilliant! Though I shudder to think how much time you must spend lurking on other (lesser) message boards to be able to parody them so well.

My only criticisms are that some of your word choices sound dated -- certainly "videotape" and probably "fershur." And you need some txt-spelling and misspellings in there. Like maybe "A FRND OF MINE WHOS NOT HERE ANYMORE NOTICED THAT SOME 1 I DON'T NO WHO . . ."

(Edit: like, I just noticed from FinGolFin's other post: " . . . and b honest if u agree with this . . .")

Nice job otherwise.

Betterer is wrong. Should be more better.Cool

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.
