I doubt Sauron will be at the battle of the Five armies, since the orcs that joined in were led by a goblin king.
Fun fact: the Sting you see Bilbo with has no inscription, but it has an inscription in Lord of the Rings. The inscription reads: "Sting is my name, I am the Spider's bane." Bilbo did not name the dagger Sting, however, until after he sliced up the spiders, so it would make no sense for it to have the inscription on it when he finds it by the trolls.
TL;DR: Attention to detail - this movie has it.
damn, meant to rate that as winner, not funny.
fleeing his stronghold as The Necromancer after Gandalf n' friends chased him out (which is part of the Gandalf only scenes you see in the trailer, so we're definitely gonna see Sauron in this movie.)
IIRC didn't Gandalf & co. "defeat" Sauron with an invention that Saruman made? I wonder if he'll include it in the movie
You sure sound like a critic whose words should be heeded... It was well done. It set up an emotional bond and then cut the tie. I've never seen better really.
Now Jack Black... Well, that's debatable. You sure as shit never stop seing Jack Black instead of Denham, that's for sure. But i thought it did well enough. It's certainly better than Jim Carrey in "23".
I really liked that the movie had the old-school vibe where watching it was meant to be a special occation, just like a trip to a theme-park or something. Very unlike todays "Summer Blockbuster" stuff. And it kinda took the film that bit further for me. So yeah, might be over long to you, but it wasn't long because he was stretching it. He just fleshed stuff out.
Not only that, but he fixed something that pissed me off about the original. That bitch was screaming constantly! It totally rendered the whole situation annoying. This time we only got two screams from her and BOTH resulted in chills down my spine + she actually acted this time. Big improvement.
Color me ignorant, but what do they mean by "character faces," exactly?
maybe like that fat hobbit who is giving evil eye in the beginning of fellowship fo the ring and in the end of return of the king
Thought you guys might like this. It's TECHNICALLY the first adaptation of "The Hobbit" ever- animation director Gene Deitch's producer was about to lose his license to the book series, and had him toss together something in a month that he could screen to an audience.
Suffice to say, it is a fairly... liberal adaptation.
I've never been so hyped for movie as for The Hobbit
But it still 318 days away..
Well shit son! "Hobbit cast complete" and no Aragorn for the second movie. he's fucking VITAL in bridging Hobbit with LoTR. He did half the work in finding Smeagol.
They're not going to connect this with FOTR, that was just the original idea.
I said that the Kong and Rex fights were about the only action sequences that were well done.
Also, the chemistry between Anne and Kong was great, I suppose I forgot to give it props for that too.
And I never really liked the original King Kong, I was more of a Godzilla guy.
Though, I would rate this King Kong higher than every Godzilla and Kong movie ever made.
But, it's not saying much.
6/10 would be my rating, though, I haven't seen the movie in a number of years and perhaps a rewatch is in order.
