AUJ Chapter of the Week (CHOW) Sign-up for November! Can't Post

Chapter of the Week (CHOW) is an ongoing discussion on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. For the month of November, we have 5 CHOWs. Each host will make one thread each week on their chosen film chapter (ideally during the weekend - anytime between Friday to Sunday inclusive).

The leaders are as follows:

1. Weekend of November 1st - The Adventure Begins - Kim
Begin: 00:38:27 - When Bilbo wakes up the next morning
End: 00:43:40 - Before we cut to Bombur snoring

2. Weekend of November 8th - The Battle of Moria - Queen of Erebor (didn't get to post her thread earlier, so she's doing this one instead)
Begin: 00:43:40 - Bombur snoring
End: 00:50:11 - Ends with the Orcs

3. Weekend of November 15th - Radagast the Brown - MatthewJer18
Begin: 00:50:11 - The Company traveling in rain
End: 00:55:15 - Shot of Dol Guldur

4. Weekend of November 22nd - The Trollwshaws - Nunilo
Begin: 00:55:15 - The Company arrive at the farmstead
End: 00:57:02 - Gandalf leaves

5. Weekend of November 29th - Roast Mutton - DanielLB (helping run CHOW has its perks TongueAngelic)
Begin: 00:57:02 - Nighttime at Trollshaw
End: 01:07:50 - After the Trolls are turned to stone

Please take note of the start and end times, and the part in which the chapter covers (all times approximate, and are in hh:mm:ss standard). Please also do not post a CHOW thread unless you have already signed up, or notified cats16 or DanielLB first.

Volunteers choose their chapter on a first-come-first-serve basis, so get in there quickly if you want to host a particular chapter. If you have already hosted a CHOW, you are more than welcome to volunteer again, but be sure to give everyone an opportunity to host first. Just respond to this thread with which chapter you would like to host. CHOW is likely to take a short break during December, since the board will be moving to quickly for any CHOW discussions. We're likely to restart again in the New Year. We will keep everyone up-to-date. So we will be asking for more volunteers for the rest of the chapters later on. If you miss this sign-up, don't worry! There are plenty of chapters left. If in doubt which chapter is which, consult your DVD (hopefully you own it, or PM either cats16 or DanielLB.)

Each person will be assigned a DVD chapter, seen above. For your chosen chapter, we will leave the discussion up to you! It really is an open book, so we don't want to restrict anyone. Some suggestions might be:

- The use of CGI in the scene (or even HFR, if you can remember what it was like)
- The score and the soundtrack
- The props, sets and landscapes in the scene
- The costumes we see in the film
- The actors and acting
- General scene setups
- Differences from book
- A comparison with animated film
- A comparison with The Lord of the Rings films

You can ask as little or as many questions as you like. Have fun, and enjoy!

You can also choose screencaps for your part, and we recommend this website. Magpie has provided an excellent tutorial in image posting on TORn that can be found here. Please also make sure all screencaps stay within TORn's Term of Service (see 2.20).

When posting your thread, please include "Chapter of the Week: [Insert Chapter Title Here]", so that they are easy to find on a rather fast moving board.

We hope you enjoy all the discussions.

(Refer to this post for more details concerning CHOW that may not be addressed in this thread.)

Remember, Brethil is hosting 'Bilbo's Choice' this week. Be sure to check in over the weekend to talk all about our little Hobbit!

Definitely! [In reply to] Can't Post

You've got it.

I haven't been able to respond as much lately, either. I'm keeping them bookmarked, though! I plan to come back to them, even if it's December. Cool

R-r-r-r-adagast the Brown. [In reply to] Can't Post

All yours. Looking forward to seeing your thoughts. Smile

General comment to everyone:

Thank you three so much for quick responses! It's great to still see interest in CHOW, even as DOS hype is increasing daily. And to those unable to reply fast enough--plenty of chapters are still remaining! As mentioned above, we will resume CHOW after the New Year, when it looks like DOS-talk is starting to wind down a bit.
