I'm looking forward to this, it will remind me of my college days. My brother and our buddies going to see LOTR, etc.

Is it just me or does some of the makeup look really really bad? The dwarves in Bilbo's place, just looks... so fake. Is that the right word? Like it's very obvious it's makeup.

badLogic: Why or why did Jackson leave out the Scouring of the Shire? That could have been an entire movie in itself.


I would have loved to have seen it for a couple reasons:
1) It pays off the vision that Frodo has when he's visiting Galadriel about the Shire burning.
2) It shows that the Hobbits as a whole society grow and stand up for themselves. As the movie ends, the rest of the Shire is completely oblivious to any of the evils that exist outside its borders.

That being said, I can understand why it was cut. At that point in the film, yet another ending would have been just too much for a lot of people.

Not just that but in Jackson's telling of the story, leaving the Shire unchanged and out of this world-ecompassing conflict was the whole point of Frodo's quest, it's what he was willing to sacrifice his life for. To include the Scouring is to invalidate that sacrifice, to say essentially, that Frodo failed

Well, that and it wasn't clear in the movies that the hobbits were so vehemently anti-adventuring like they were in the books. There were pages and pages about proper hobbitry, yet in the movies the only non-fellowship hobbit that gets much screen time at all is Bilbo. It makes #2 kind of impossible in the world as presented.

you have pee hands: BalugaJoe: I hope they do Silmarrion movie after this.

Does that get good? The beginning felt like reading Old Testament genealogies and I quickly gave up.


No, that's about it.

The Silmarillion is essentially "The LOTR Appendices, the Novel". There are bits of story, but it's mostly setting and background and the writer's equivalent of DM notes. It was mostly published to get people to stop harassing Tolkien/his family for more LOTR shiat.

born_yesterday: The Martian Manhandler: After The Hobbit, New Line is making a three movie series out of 'Farmer Giles of Ham'.

Is that the story where the farmer has to fend off a giant or something with a blunderbuss? Or did I imagine all that?

AntonChigger: Fall of Gondolin anyone? An ARMY of Balrogs and other more frightening things, plus that epic one on one duel where the prince stabs the balrog to death with his helmet before they both die.

MOAR of this!


What you really want is Battle of Unnumbered Tears. Epic battle between all of the Noldor, the Dwarves, and the 3 House of Men on one side and all of Morgoth's creatures including the first introduction of dragons. Allies getting their ass kicked and then Turgon shows up with 10,000 elves to kind of prevent total disaster. That could be movie 1. Plus you have the epic duel between Morgoth and Fingolfin that occurs when Fingolfin thinks that all is lost. Then you transition to Gondolin and its fall.

I loved seeing that world brought to life, and for the most part I thought it was as epic as I had hoped. Two things have stuck in my craw for a long time now. 1. They (Jackson, Astin) turned Samwise into Samcries, and 2. Leaving out the Scouring of the Shire diminishes the ending of the journey.(Until the Grey Havens which I see as an epilogue)
Saruman get his, and the fellowship have to sort out the Shire. The naive hobbits that set out have been transformed by the journey and are hardened steel at that point. Whuppin' some ass is a fait accompli as the lads have already been to hell and back. And Sam gets to use Galadriel's magic dirt to restore their home and get back to growing and smokin' the Longbottom Leaf.
In a way, it's not until the Scouring of the Shire that their transformation is complete. This was the fight for their home, and after fighting in various factions and locales, the 4 were unified and proceeded to sort it all out with complete badassery post haste.

Yeah, The Scouring of the Shire puts the 4 Hobbits, Merry and Pippin especially, into the ranks of the greatest beings to ever walk Middle Earth. Sam and Frodo, not withstanding since they are already legends at that point. Frodo infact, does not do very much in that chapter, being weakened from the quest.

There was one other part of the movies that gave me indigestion. What Jackson did to Faramir. The most ironic line of the whole movie trilogy was Samwise stating during the battle in Osgiliath that "By all rights we should not even be here."

There is one more part of the LOTR that was left out and should have been included: the barrow downs. It is the first test of the bravery of Frodo. And although Bombadil ultimately saves them, Frodo has a taste of what is to come with the Nazgul.

NeoCortex42: Egoy3k: NeoCortex42: I'm still hoping we get at least a look at Smaug in the first film. I know they won't get anywhere near that point in the story, but they could have a prologue in the beginning or a teaser of him at the end of the movie.

They'll probably show him attacking the lonely mountain from a distance in a flashback. Thorin tells the whole party about being out hunting when it happens. If they stay true to the source material the unexpected party will be much too long and much too boring for a film audience without some flashbacks or other things to liven it up.

That's what the musical interlude is for. We all know what Bilbo Baggins hates.

Rev.K: BalugaJoe: I hope they do Silmarrion movie after this.

I have hoped for that for a long, long time.

I have to believe they will. Peter Jackson and LOTR content is nothing but money in the bank for New Line.

I don't see them stopping.

The only problem with the Silmarillion is that it's not as well known to general audiences. Even people that haven't read LOTR or The Hobbit have heard of it. It will also be a little more difficult to market since it's not just one cohesive story. It's a collection of tales.

I think it would probably work best as an HBO series. Maybe a post-Game of Thrones fantasy production.


I thought that the were putting parts from the Silmarillion that occurred during The Hobbit into the movie, which is why it's three parts.

They won't, or at least Peter Jackson won't. He doesn't have the intellectual property rights to the Silmarillion, which are still with Christopher Tolkien. Christopher Tolkien hates the Peter Jackson adaptations and would never have approved them if he had possessed the power. The only reason PJ and New Line could make LOTR and The Hobbit into movies is because the Tolkien estate (or perhaps Tolkien himself before his death, not sure) sold the movie rights to them a very long time ago.

New Line doesn't have the rights to it, so it's believed to be appendices from LotR.

My guess is the first movie is the first few chapters including a lot of Hobbiton and Rivendell. They get captured, taken to Goblin Town, escape, riddle game and that's the movie. The second film probably starts with them being pursued by the worgs and goblins, rescued by eagles, Beorn, and Mirkwood with the spiders. Since that is kind of thin, I'm guessing the second film also has a lot of the White Council and the Necromancer story line. Then the third movie would be captured by the Wood Elves, escape down the river, Lake Town, Lonely Mountain, Smaug attacks, battle of 5 armies. Something like that. The third film will probably be way long.

I was willing to reluctantly deal with splitting the book in to two movies... but three? I just don't see it. If you can't tell the story adequately in 6 hours I think you need to reconsider the whole project. It's definitely not going to be worth 60 bucks a person to see it in the theater.

Magorn: NeoCortex42: badLogic: Why or why did Jackson leave out the Scouring of the Shire? That could have been an entire movie in itself.

I would have loved to have seen it for a couple reasons:
1) It pays off the vision that Frodo has when he's visiting Galadriel about the Shire burning.
2) It shows that the Hobbits as a whole society grow and stand up for themselves. As the movie ends, the rest of the Shire is completely oblivious to any of the evils that exist outside its borders.

That being said, I can understand why it was cut. At that point in the film, yet another ending would have been just too much for a lot of people.

To include the Scouring is to invalidate that sacrifice, to say essentially, that Frodo failed


It was the whole point of Frodo's quest according to Tolkien as well. The catch is that if you can never show the difference between the hobbits who left the shire (in the commentary they are told "this is your big time to act like hobbits") and the badasses who returned. Once you do this, it is easy to decide to make Aragon the new hero. Tolkien's Aragon was pretty much there to move the plot along, a towering example of what a king should be. Jackson had to tear him down, Aragon son of Arathon became Aragon son of Hamlet. Faramir had to be seen as less than where Aragon started (probably the most painful part of this whole transformation). Aragon eventually is seen as heroic, gets the elf-babe, and lives another 100 years of happiness.

Hard to tell if Frodo's betrayal of Sam was completely unforced or simply a way of keeping the heroic spotlight back on Aragon.

PJ messed up the dwarves for sure. Dwarves are supposed to be stocky. Thorin, Fili, Kili, and Bofur just look way to dispropotionate than how you picture dwarves. Then you have the characature ones, Nori and Ori. That pretty much speaks for itself. The others look good, but just too 'clean'. I thought dwarves were miners. They need more grit. Dirt deep in their skin, more ragged looking hair, some grime and wear on their clothing. These guys look like they were on some TLC makeover show before setting out on this adventure. Just trying to pinpoint why they don't look quite right, and its only my .02.

IMDB's been wrong before, and since the release of 2 and 3 are a ways off they're probably going to play with the editing a bit based on the usual focus grouping 'n stuff, but if those cast lists prove to be accurate it appears that Bard shows up and Smaug dies in 2. So 3's either 45 minutes long or there will be a lot of Necromancer scenes and a reeeeealllly long Battle of Five Armies in that one.

phaseolus: I hope he gets more to do besides pestering a hedgehog. And since Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as The Necromancer, I think he will...


Frankly shocked I haven't seen that scene gif'd up with "JAWN FEELS!!1!!!" on it already.

/Because Martin Freeman is a hedgehog made of kittens
//I briefly wondered if it were some sort of deliberate in-joke
