Would you go see it?
I would go and see it. Perhaps they can get the world idol to be bilbo?
I dunno about this. It seems a bit like ca-chinging in. I doubt it will ever happen either.
I do hope this doesn't come to pass. I'd far prefer to see Jackson go back to making more interesting films rather than spending ages churning out another of these crowd-pleasing special-effects fests.
oh please...oh please...oh please...
I have one slight demurral which is that The Hobbit is unequivocally a children's book. What's the difference? Only the difference between LOTR and Harry Potter. A book for kids makes a film for kids - lovely for kids but not for me.
Apart from that...oh please...oh please...oh please...
why not this will be interesting
It could be a perfectly fine movie. I wonder if the same guy who played Bilbo in LOTR could do it for this. I liked him.
It would have Gandalf, Gollum, funny dwarves, a huge dragon, and a big fight. Sounds good by me.
I hear that Brad Pitt's people are talking with the Jackson camp with hopes of landing this plumb lead role.
Anyway, I'd probably go see it, although all those dwarves may prove to be a bit TOO MUCH comedy relief!
Yes, Kurt Nilsen
Where was he from again?
Hopefully it won't be like a repeat of stuff like starwars I and II.
It would be a good movie. Can't we just leave something to the imagination, though?
Yea. The simillariailllliaon (or however za feck it is spelled).
The "ca-chinging" is exactly the reason it will be made.
Both of the series were children's books, so whats your point?
Archer, I would not say that LOTR is a children's series to a Tolkien fanatic if I were you. Just imagine the painful agony that would follow!
When I go and see it why dont you try and imagine how much I am liking it.
And perhaps Leonard Nemoy can sing that song of his
Anyway - making the Hobbit would be a nice touch to the filming of Middle Earth. I enjoyed the triology, though of course reading was a better experience....
on the issue of it being a children's book - well: children watch movies at the cinema too
Actually, the Harry Potter books started off as kids books, but they seem to be moving more towards young adult. The most recent book talks about two people who were tortured untill they went insane, and some other "gruesome" things, defiantly not meant for kids.
Also, I'd go see "The Hobbit" if it is made.
My uncles wifes friend have talked to PJ about getting some Danish longboat builders to New Zealand for that riven city. Im not kidding.
edit-I might want to add that my uncles wifes friend is a longboat builder.
I haven't seen any Lord of the Rings films yet - though I've read everything - but would definitely go for The Hobbit. I'm unsure how that children's book could become a children's movie, as in movie format its lack of message would stand out. Children's movies require meaning.
