Whose waiting for The Hobbit?

Postby HobbitFeets » Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:57 pm

So there's the qusetion, whose waiting for The Hobbit?

I've lost count of the amount of times i've watched The Lord of the Rings films that my wife slaps me when I quote them (sad I know). But with the cast thats there, even if your not a fan it must be worth a watch.

I'm definately going gold class to see this one :dance:
No. I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in "adventures."

Nasty.... Disturbing... Uncomfortable things......................Make you late for dinner.

Couple of threads got TH going on in this forum already - particularly this one ;)

But yeah - really looking forward to it, though not so convinced with the 3 picture deal it's now generated into. LotR of course was published in a 3 (double) book format so never had any quibbles with that and, like you I watch the buggers frequently but have read the books a lot more (I've lost count but it's in the high double figures if not triple :oops: ).

I'm hoping that they've done a good background research job with the 'untold' stories behind Gandalf's excursion to Dol Guldur and with the pre-Hobbit events with Thorin's father and with the other Dwarvish storyline with Dain in the Iron Hills - potentially there's enough for 3 films even though the main part was in a fairly thin (for Tolkien) tome if they try to stay within the story arcs in canon, but it's pretty much a grubbing around fest in the Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales or some of the volumes from Christopher Tolkien's History of Middle Earth to assemble a decent screenplay to fill 3 movies. But the Jacksons have a good track record mostly so yeah - I have high hopes for it :D

Why did I know that Jan was going to be the first to respond to this thread?
