I was hoping for a scene where the dwarves fart competitively for three and a half minutes. You just know Jackson has some dwarf fart-humor scene stashed away somewhere.
Well then there should also be a scene where Gandalf steps in troll poop and does a super saiyan scream for 7-8 minutes.
Yeah, I don't really care too much about special features. My favorite special features are deleted scenes I don't need to watch animatics or commentary. It would be fun to see the extra footage, but not $50 of fun.
Libraries. Seriously. At least see the EE films...
And I think the features are fabulous.
Yeah, I saw that about the libraries And it's a good idea; I'll have to see if mine carries them.
Now that I think about it I'm not sure I've seen the EE for Two Towers. Maybe years ago or something. I generally watch the regular versions, but I do like the EEs I have seen.
I've sort of forgotten that there were ever such things as the theatrical editions. The EEs are the only way to fly.
A interesting new video
Other than this I have no idea what will be in the EE.
Well wasn't there that scene where Gandalf catches a moth in the Rivendell scene and Saruman proceeds to slowly pull off its wings while droning on in a dull voice?
While bitching about how he hates Gwaihir and the eagles.
I want a Hobbit movie that isn't able to be meaningfully described as having a "last two hours".
My library only has the theatrical editions, not the EE. At any rate, I think I prefer the theatrical editions. The EE were cool, but for repeat viewings I think the three-hour theatrical version is more enjoyable.
I've not seen the theatrical versions since the cinema, but I have a feeling that were I to see them again they would feel longer than the EEs. Why? Because I'd be so frustrated at not seeing stuff I know should be there that it would be a less enjoyable experience. So I'd notice the length (which is significant even in the theatrical versions). The EEs work so much better, immerse me more effectively, so they seem to glide past.
I've forgotten alot of the theatrical editions completely, minus FOTR which used to be on Encore alot and I would always watch despite owning them. But the whole time I would wonder where the EE scenes were at.
Well hold on now. Hold on. This is almost suggestive of some heinous plot concocted by the nation of New Zealand to get people so completely immersed into a film about their country audience members eventually 1) forget to eat/drink/other bodily functions and die or 2) become inundated with subliminal messages and swear fealty to the New Zealand nation. Either way New Zealand succeeds in world domination.
I'm not so sure I support these EEs anymore.
So much hate for this film. Well thank goodness some of you folks don't rule the world.
I kind of sympathize with Saruman. Imagine if your smunderlings had private conversations at official meetings. How would you feel if you were being personally dirsrespected with absolutely no recognition that you were even in the room?
At least Sauron might have listened to him.
The movie was awesome, don't know why some people hate considering it kept close to the book
I liked the movie, but honestly....really wasn't that close to the book. Had the major events in name, but they were often very much different...in the last two hours.
Haters gonna hate.
I really liked The Hobbit, but it's still an undoubtedly flawed film. The material itself is well directed. The acting is good and the visuals are for the most part nicely done, which is more than can be said for many big budget blockbusters. But the way it is edited leaves much to be desired though. And that's the film's biggest flaw.
For example in the very opening we see Ian Holm's Bilbo writing There and Back Again, which was a nice way of helping keep a consistency with the LotR movies and helps the audience get used to Martin Freeman as Bilbo. But then the scene runs too long by holding a conversation with Frodo when it really should have transitioned to 60 years earlier upon having Bilbo quote the novel's famous opening sentence. The film is filled with such self-indulgent fluff that if shaved off would have produced a leaner, better movie.
