I miss that cinematography [In reply to] Can't Post

I realize the Hobbit needs to be more colorful, but the garish Thomas Kinkade colors are a bit much. AUJ's prologue was well done in terms of color and lighting, but it went down hill after that. Rivendell was a rainbow nightmare.

The charming fairytale tone of the first half of the movie, the cozy Bag-End opening, [In reply to] Can't Post

the Lonely Mountain Anthem, the brighter colours in the places where they belonged (except for Gandalf's hat which needed to be more plainly and consistently blue), the prologue SOME aspects of THe White Council (and some not!), Ken Stout's Balin and James Nesbit's Bofur, LeePace's Thranduil, and of course Smaug. I enjoyed Radagast's home and introduciton. The design improvements of The Wargs, more akin to demonic possessed wolves now, even if some of the CGI scenes could have used improvement.

This question is even directed at you haters out there. lol

For me, undoubtedly the best thing is Thranduil. Has there ever been better casting for a role in Middle-Earth (other than Sir Ian for Gandalf, of course)?

Ah, yes, LEGO! [In reply to] Can't Post

LEGO is one of the biggest positive factors I can think of. Cool I quite enjoy having the Company march across my dresser, even if I'm running out of space for more sets...

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

All that's missing... [In reply to] Can't Post

…is Gondor! I have room (or will gladly make some) for Faramir, Osgiliath and Eowyn's battle with the Witch-King.

Thorin Oakenshield [In reply to] Can't Post

Without a doubt. I love his character, and see quite a bit of myself in him.Or maybe it's viceversa. Either way I can relate to him. Balin's great too. He's like your favorite old uncle.
