Re: [mythsoc] what are people's thoughts on the upcoming Hobbett movie?
I am looking forward to seeing The Hobbit film despite any misgivings I may have. I will admit the first time I saw the dwarves they seemed almost cartoon like and obviously “fake” looking, though how an imaginary being could look real I don’t know. I did know this was not how I imagined them, but they have begun to grow on me. I do give MR. Jackson credit for having made an entertaining movie from LOTR, visually stunning, some things very cool and much like I had imagined them, others not so much. I never went to the theater to see the LOTR films because I am a firm believer that movies seldom if ever can do justice to a book. Yet after seeing them at home on DVD, they were fun to watch. I’m quite sure I will go to a theater to see The Hobbit; I won’t be able to resist. I think what disturbs me the most is after seeing the films I tend to see things as they appear in the films not as I would if it were left only to the imagination, and some how I think that is how it should be, seen in the eye of one’s own imagination. I think there in the minds eye is the real magic of Faërie. When I see the movie I’ll remember this is not Tolkien’s story it is Peter Jackson’s. Yet being a Tolkien fan it is very cool to see some pretty good attempts to capture the magic of Faërie on film.

Date: Saturday, November 10, 2012, 6:55 AMHi all. I thought I would get a discussion going. I would like to know what people's thoughts are on the upcoming Hobbit movie?? are you looking forward to seeing it? do you think it will be as good as lotr? what do you think of the new actors playing the roles of the dwarves and the new actor playing the role of Bilbo? and what are your thoughts on some of the older actors reprising there roles that they had in the lotr films? visually do you think it will be the same? or different then the lotr movies? and this same question go's for the story do you think it will stick true to the book?For me it does look good and the only issue that I have is the fact that they didn't stick with Ian Holm playing the role of young Bilbo since as I have pointed out before in the seen where he finds the ring we hear his voice say what's this? now will they just re right that hole seen for the hobbit? since the idea of 2 diffrent people doing this seen to me just doesn't work. having 2 people playing the same character in my view. well discuss. from Mich.
