Release: December 14, 2012 (Canada)

It's like it's just hit me recently that this is coming out. Feels like such a long time since the epicness of Lord of the Rings and yet that magic hasn't really faded. I'm still amazed at that trilogy and I can't believe we're going to be deliver yet another 3 epic films.

STOKED. SPAM THIS THREAD WITH MOSTLY LIKELY HOT DWARVES, GAY WIZARD, MARTIN FREEMAN AND UGLIFIED RICHARD ARMITAGE.

Not impressed with uglifying Richard Armitage. SHAMEFUL. (lol)

What if they had cast Butler as Thorin? I wouldn't enjoy it as much, that's what.

So what's the ship's official name according to tumblr? Personally, I like the sound of Thobo lol. Not saying I'm a member just yet, but I support the idea.

I don't think there is an official name but I like Thobo. It reminds me of something dirty but I won't say. I'll save your minds.

I leave you with this goodie for 8 days!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Soundtrack

That's the link to Rolling Stone's stream of the official movie soundtrack. It gets released on the 11th. Guess what I will be buying and playing constantly in my car?

5 days, bitches.

And then a few more days until we see it because our theatres suck monkey balls.

Movie verdict: so fucking good. Need to see again. Bromance hug was even better when in proper context.

Random things about this movie:
(view spoiler)



BEST BROMANCE HUG EVER.


message 20: by Mitch (new)

Mitch May told me her new obsession was Ori. She told me he sling shot himself off the screen and into her heart.

I don't know how they're going to get two more movies out of this book. I bet I could have read it cover to cover during the running time of that.

I'm not complaining though. Gimli was the best part of LotR. This is like a whole pack of him.

I just finished the book, and since I don't want to leave Middle-earth just yet, here are the things I can't wait for in the next two movies (spoilers alert, but if you're here you've probably read the book anyway):

-Smaug being smug, vain, and overall fabulous
-OMG DWARVES IN BARRELS
-Bard vs. Smaug (but boosted up like 100X because honestly, his death was anticlimactic)
-Battle of Five Armies of course (this entire thing can probably be dragged out to a full hour. Can Thranduil fight on his moose please?)
-the inevitable 50+ endings that will make me tear up but also slightly impatient because my bladder is most likely very full by that point

Jackson being Jackson with his epic fantasy war scenes, I expect a good deal of fire and screaming and Smaug basically fucking everyone's shit up.
