Damn, it will take a whole year until it is in theaters. I do not think I can survive this long. :P

Given the way Peter Jackson treated The Lord of the Rings in his movie trilogy, I have no doubts that this film will be an amazing adaptation of the only J. R. R. Tolkien novel that does not spend two paragraphs per page with descriptions of trees.

What I am saying is, yes, LotR was a very good book, but The Hobbit is much more pleasant to read because Tolkien does not spend so much time with painfully boring and detailed descriptions of obejects and places.

Believe you me, if I can survive two years, as I'm waiting because I'm betting dollars to donuts AMC will do a double feature event for both parts on part two's opening night like they did this summer with Deathly Hallows 1 and 2, you can wait one year for the first part.

And now Peter Jackson is stretching the story of The Hobbit out into two films, each of which will probably be at least 2.5 hours. :?

Based on what I heard, here are the lyrics:

Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
The pines were roaring on the height
The winds were moaning in the night
The fires red in flaming spread
The trees like torches blaze with life

I like how even though the lyrics don't seem the rhyme it still sounds awesome! :)


I believe it is this song from the book:

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To seek our pale enchanted gold.
The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells,
In places deep,
where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.
For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought,
and light they caught,
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

Apparently, the second part will be a link between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. They want to show things like the White Council's battle against The Necromancer to make up for the sudden change in tone between the two novels (the former was a kid-friendly book, while the latter was a very dark tale about war).

Given the many events Tolkien implied were taking place in the background during The Hobbit, I believe this could be a good thing: there is no shortage of events to depict in the two movies. And there is a great difference between showing the plot advancing and describing the shapes of tree leaves. This is the reason it took me a few days short of one year to read the LotR trilogy, and less than two days to read The Hobbit.

So, was I the only one who felt immense satisfaction during the dwarves' cough... ill-fated... cough... strike against the mountain trolls?

Farewell, Xenoblade wallpaper. It was good while it lasted, but Smaug completes me.

I made a wallpaper of that artwork with the Hobbit logo and "Part II". I even made the shadow behind the logo relative to the flames engulfing Esgaroth!

Oh my goooooodness!! !! It's so amazing I'm going to explode! The singing, yes, agreed, the singing was phenomenal! I love the whole look, feel, and effect that Peter Jackson has created and continues to create. His interpretations of Tolkien's world are just...yay.

Very exited about this, I'm curious to see which other songs from the book Jackson will manage to work in,and which ones will go the way of Tom Bombadil.
