Will I be the only one who is sad that the Tolkien books will be mostly wrapped up after these movies are released? I mean there is The Children of Hurin and other Tolkien writings, but those books aren't the same.

I really wish Peter Jackson would express interest in doing a movie about the end of the Second Age. I'm sure Tolkien had a decent amount of material on that which could be used for a film.

Either way, The Hobbit is going to be amazing. I've never been so pumped up for a movie.

I have mixed feelings about this the old joke about seeing your Mother-in-law backing off a cliff in your cherry 1970 Hemi 'Cuda...

I personally hate fake 3D because it gives me a headache, and because it's not true 3D. I hate trying to focus on something 2 inches from my face and till have it be out of focus.

I hope at least that they don't have crap sticking into your face and it really is like Peter Jackson described as a hole cut in the back of the cinema. 3D is at least mildly tolerable when it resembles a stage set where nothing extends past the front of the stage.
If your glasses fog up and you want to make your own mask fans, here's how;

I agree with Jaan 100%.

I have been finding that to be true a lot lately...don't know if that is scarier for me, or for Carlos...

One way or the other, I'm a Tolkien nut, so I'll be anxiously awaiting next December...and the following...

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.

I'll see this in 3D. I imagine it'll look fine. And if not... always 2D.

I don't mind 3d as long as it isn't gratuitous or cheesy. It's the uncalled for "look what we can do" m oments that I hate.

3D is a gimmick, has always been a gimmick, and will always be a gimmick (until they bring out full-immersion holographs), aimed at artificially inflating the price of a movie ticket and A/V technology prices. 2D all the way.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.

The problem with America is that we confuse our politics for religion, and our religions for science.

Soggy, you're the man and I miss you.

Secondly, me and my roommate have been watching the extended versions of the trilogy for the past week or so. I am foaming at the mouth for the release next year. AhhhhH!
