Very classy comment AK

I think I ever have waited for a movie to be released since RotK. The funny thing is I am going to do exactly the same thing for my work as I did almost 10 years ago and now the Hobbit is coming out this year

Is everyone still discussing the movie seriously or is everyone still fangirling about the dwarf dudes?

It is quite nostalgic to have a new PJ/Tolkien film to look forward to for my birthday! I loved those years when the LOTR movies came out one after another in December, and each one in time for my birthday! One year I won tickets to one of the films at church, by answering a trivia question about Gollum ... Totally geeky!

That's awesome.

I never got to see LotR in theater, because I was too young. xD That's why I'm guiltily pleased that it took them so long to make the Hobbit.

Bah, I forget how long it's been and how young some of our little folks are! I think it's fabulous that it has been 10 years so a new generation can get excited about a new LOTR film. Oh my goodness, I can still remember seeing the first preview for the first LOTR film -- I didn't even know they were making one, and I saw the Orcs and Hobbits, and I was about to have a fit in the cinema! I mean a live action LOTR movie and it looked so cool, not cheesy at all -- I was freaking out. Then I freaked out over every movie when it came out ... and when ROTK won for Best Picture, I was totally over the moon!

I'm glad there's going to be another one!

Well, here are two changes:

Ringwraiths have tombs (what the?)

Radagast is pulled on a sled by bunnies/jackrabbits. (could be Beorn, which would make more sense)

Discuss.
