I think they are determined to make us weep for Balin when the long road arrives at Moria. [In reply to] Can't Post

... the only one I could not find skipping through the trailers quickly was the one with Kili. If at all, those are slightly different angles of fight suff we have seen over and over now. No need to be snarky to Dju ;)

The only thing new seems to be Balin and Bilbo:

"There is no dushonour in turning back."

"I promised I would do this. And I think I must try."


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

Yes... [In reply to] Can't Post

... his line is heartbreaking already. Knowing that he will not turn back when he should some years later :(

“A dragon is no idle fancy. Whatever may be his origins, in fact or invention, the dragon in legend is a potent creation of men’s imagination, richer in significance than his barrow is in gold.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Words of wisdom that should be remembered - both by critics, purists and anyone in between.

What's in a name? [In reply to] Can't Post

Well; the important question isn't how I would pronounce it, but how Tolkien would. And he was kind enough to tell us in Appendix E that the vowel should be pronounced "as in loud, how and not as in laud, haw".

I always thought this missed an opportunity for a good pun, though. Wink

1 thing that wasn't new but was just a little different [In reply to] Can't Post

I noticed in the one TV spot that when we hear Thranduil say "Such is the nature of evil...In time all foul things come forth." His voice has a slightly different inflection to it than when he says the same line in the DOS teaser trailer. In the teaser trailer, he says it more loudly, almost as if he is announcing this fact to a group of people. In the TV spot, he says it more softly, as if he is speaking to only one person in a more private setting.

Kind of a geeky observation to make, I know, but I just thought I'd put it out there. I wonder why they changed it?

My favorite speech from the entire LOTR series: Sam:“It’s like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was after so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances at turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.” Frodo: “What are we holding on to, Sam?” Sam: “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for!”
