- I do. But I guess I just don't understand why THIS movie is going to be in 3-D. I don't want the special effects to detract from the story.In a message dated 10/17/2010 5:22:22 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, jack@... writes:

Welcome Rod. Other than news about the Hobbit movie, this group hasn't been very active of late. Perhaps your intro will spark some new discussions? For what it's worth, I first read the Hobbit, followed quickly by the LOTR, in 1976 and have been hooked ever since. I've read each repeatedly over the years. I'm also a big fan of the movies and have seen them each a dozen times including one showing of all three movies, back to back, in Avery Fisher hall soon after the ROTK was released. I've also seen the first two movies (so far) with the complete Howard Shore score performed live at Radio City Music Hall. It was spectacular!
I'm looking forward to the Hobbit although I am a little concerned that it is being filmed in 3-D.

I have been a part of Yahoo groups for several years, mostly as a short wave afectionado and a HAM radio operator. Just on a hunch I entered Tolkien as a search and sure enough there this group is!
First read Tolkien's trilogy back in 1969 and started with the two towers! Talk about confusing :) Got right on track then read the Hobbit. I have read the Hobbit at least 12 times since, seen the cartoon aka movie. I've read the trilogy at least 15 times, seen Jackson's work several fewer with reruns on TV. Even read Beowulf in school twice!
Have a few ideas about Tom Bombadil and his part in the first book and lack of in the movie.

I don’t think the filming in 3D will detract/distract. It didn’t on Avatar which can easily be watched in non-3D form with no loss.
I hope that is true!
