That's not a cute story, that's admission of a crime.

He could have tried, you know, asking.  "Hey, we're working a budget production here, can we have your set scraps if we haul them away so you don't have to?"

Joke's on them, I peed on most of that stuff.

At least something good came out of those movies.

"And I have never talked to Peter Jackson about this. I don't know if he knows. I like telling it at parties, that story, but I don't know if he actually knows."


Young hungry low budget filmmaker Peter Jackson would have appreciated your ingenuity in getting your film made.


Hobbit Peter Jackson would have probably had you arrested.

I love the idea of Taika and Jemaine sneaking into the Shire under cover of night to steal lumber. I just find that hilarious for some reason.

I'm still amazed at how much I love the LotR films and how disappointed I am in the Hobbit trilogy.

The Hobbit was not supposed to be an epic story. It was a fun adventure. It should have been lighter in tone, and no more than two parts, if not one.

It should have been one 2 hour movie.  Add on an extra 30-45 minutes for the destruction of Dol Goldur in the extended blu-ray for the serious Tolkien heads.

Everyone goes home happy.

Yep. Although I could accept a pair of 90-minute movies if that's what it took to get the studio to sign off on it.

A trilogy was doomed from the start.

Studio interference doomed Hobbit from the start

This is only acceptable if Taika had escaped from authorities with the lumber while floating down a river in a wine barrel.

I will say that I appreciate the additional music, and I'm glad some effort was made to flesh out the character of the dwarves aside from Thorin. Yes, that means I approve of there being at least one female character who wasn't in the books.

They throw out every thing after production. It is a cost effective move not to store and keep tract of inventory. So farking what if another production co takes out the trash. Our land fills are overflowing with schit. Good for them. There are legal issues with giving the used crap away so they will not. Sadly, we live in a one time use and never again country. Congress could do something but it is far beneath them. They, who are trash themselves. Fark em, I still dumpster dive myself.

I wonder if they wore all green so that no one would see them steal it.

Is it a crime if the victim isn't even aware of it?

I never watched the third one, gave up after the Desecration of Smaug. One Scooby-Doo chase scene and a giant gold farking dwarf sucked all the menace out of Smaug and killed any interest in the movies for me.
