Hobbit articles from all over the world. Can't Post

I was paging through a magazine and I was suddenly faced with Bilbo accompanied by an article - a little bit of a surprise, since none of the article was in English, and it had received five stars. Just goes to show you the thoughts of people versus critics. It made my day. Wink I thought I'd share it with everyone else (Cut into three for picture posting regulations and written in Afrikaans - a Germanic language of Southern Africa):






A translation of the article for anyone who's interested (Not anything new):
If you thought "The Lord of the Rings" and everyone in Middle-earth was behind us, think again. It's time to go further back in time; to the time before Peter Jackson's epic trilogy began. The curious young hobbit Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman) is dragged along to the Lonely Mountain by a bunch of dwarves (And there's no Snow White this time). What will they do there? Well, there is a fire-breathing dragon, Smaug, that took that which belonged to the dwarves. And these little guys *cringe* want to take back what is theirs. So, let the three-hour journey begin!

Why it's cool: For starters, Peter Jackson is back in the Director's Chair. This means it'll have the same feel as the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. It has been filmed using the latest technology. Martin Freeman has also been seen in action in other sci-fi/ fantasy movies such as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, as well as the British TV series, Sherlock - and we're mad about him all ready. He's the perfect young Bilbo! The dwarves are brilliant (we're still waiting for Sleepy and Grumpy to join the company) and the legendary Sir Ian McKellen is back as Gandalf. Is there a better fantasy series than this one? Not likely. Oh, and did we mention that it's part one of a trilogy?


Hey, not the best translation or article, but it made me so happy to see AUJ becoming more popular here. I'm sure the Dutch TORnadoes should understand a bit of it. Smile

Does anyone else have any shiny articles from magazines/newspapers to share from their countries?

"Eala Earendel engla beorhtast
ofer middangeard monnum sended."

"You think you world is safe? It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace, for I have returned to have my vengeance. So, shall we begin? " - John Harrison/Khan/Sherlock/Smaug (Star Trek: Into Darkness)

Cool [In reply to] Can't Post

So much fun reading in South African, being Dutch.
Yes, I can read it, but it sounds so much like a young child talking Wink.

It does sound like a kid talking... [In reply to] Can't Post

Not very formal. "Dwergies" made me laugh a lot.

Maybe here another one... [In reply to] Can't Post

... from the German weekly magazine "Der Spiegel" (equivalent to the Economist in the UK). A rave like this is pretty un-common for a blockbuster movie in this magazine, btw.

http://www.spiegel.de/...erwerk-a-871271.html

"The Hobbit is big, really big

What a triumph! Peter Jackson outdid himself with the first installment of his adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Hobbit". "An Unexpected Party" enchants with humour and poetry, overwhelms with great action, fascinates with sensational technology and elates with brilliant stars."
