Can't wait to see the second part!!!

 

And can't wait to get all six movies (Lord of Rings and The Hobbit) in blu ray and extended edition to get them all in a raw!!! eek.gif

It sounds crazy but just did the Lord of Rings extended edition marathon and it took almost 12 hours but it worth! bigsmile_face.gif

The Tolkien estate refuses to sell film rights to any other Tolkien book.
So there will be no other movies based on Tolkien books, in addition, Jackson cannot take any material from any other Tolkien book and incorporate it into The Hobbit movies. Any extra material is derived from the Appendices from LOTR. Not from The Silmarillion.

Yep, Tolkien and Jacksons geek biggrin.gif

 

Anyway I read "The Hobbit" but never had the chance to read "The Lord of Rings". I read different opinion about it: someone that just love it and someone saying that there are too much unnecessary description and things like songs and stuff like that...

 

What do you think?!? bigsmile_face.gif

It's one of the greatest books of the 20th century. I don't think it is too long at all. If you enjoyed reading The Hobbit, gauranteed you will really enjoy Lord Of The Rings book.

If you don't like long books, avoid Tom Clancy's books. Clancy really needs a good editor.

Somebody saw Martin Freeman in Melbourne two days ago.  May be he was heading to New Zealand.  smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah!

Very cool!

Doing some additional scenes perhaps?

post #53 of 102

Yeah may be.  That was the case with the previous trilogy, some of them returned to do additional scenes after the principal photography had finished.

To be honest, I'm really hoping they tighten up part 2.

Part One dddddrrrraaaaggggeeeeddddd a bit.

The extended version might drag even more.  biggrin.gif

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug special edition soundtrack is almost here.  :)

Can't wait for the 2nd Hobbits movie to come out.

 

Although....

 

I'd really like P.J to take on the Silmarillion, how Sauron was a good guy and all and early war and a younger Gandalf.
