"Hockey won't hold still to give you a better look. You wouldn't want it to anyway. It's the action that makes the possibilities endless."
Isn't GLORIOUS seeing Ian McKellen dressed up as Gandalf again? :D
Haha! When I took a class where we read The Hobbit, I took the midterm totally hungover that I forgot to answer a part that asked a question along the lines of either why are there no women or hardly any women in The Hobbit.
I should answer the question, at least to myself one of these days, lol, because it's an interesting one. The Hobbit and LOTR to a large degree is very much male centered, but a bulk of the fans of the books tend to be women.
There I go nerding it up again.
I tell ya...I am NOT a fan of the trilogy. We could argue for days...no point to it really. THIS LOOKS AWESOME. It looks like it is missing the sense of fun that I did not get from LOTR. Martin Freeman owns it, and the dwarves look great. I really want to see this now too.
Yeah, but are you a fan of The Hobbit? That's not part of the trilogy.
Seriously, I know some people were questioning whether this looked too light, but The Hobbit's tone is different from LOTR, lighter, more playful, and it reads quicker.
I like what some people have said, that is, Tolkien wrote LOTR for himself and The Hobbit for the public.
