    Awesome, nice of celebs to acknowledge legendary sendups of themselves.

    I hope Patrick Stewart will one day do the same for the Picard Song

    That's amazing. Bloom may not always be the best actor, but he sure is an awesome guy IRL.

    I hope that for no apparent reason, They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard plays during the ending credits to this film or Part III.

    That'll be the special edition of the extended edition. Only for people with 3DTV. ;)

    This. He's a mediocre actor at best (although he was pretty good as Legolas - the role seemed to suit him well), but damn, he's such a cool guy in real life! :D

    Although he could've prepared better for this. He was off rhythm. :p

    Darn. I was hoping they'd relegate Part 3 to Bilbo's return to the shire so he could go on a 3-hour Odysseus-rampage to reclaim Bag End.

    Right now I'm watching the White Council scene at Rivendell. Did anyone catch the reference to Rhudaur when they were discussing the Morgul blade and the Witch King? Despite all the tinkering Peter Jackson has done with the Hobbit and LOTR to bring them to the screen, he still shows "some" awareness of the source material. I use the word "some" lighty - certain omissions and changes were not needed. I was sorely disappointed in LOTR when there was no reference to the Northern Kingdom of Arnor or the Line of Anarion in Gondor as I felt it only made things confusing for those of us who have read the books - until I saw the extended editions. I still think Jackson bungled on the ROTK scene where Legolas describes the Men of the Mountain and the curse on them by having Isildur called the last King of Gondor. I mean, really?!! I can understand why Jackson wanted to make the films easier to understand for viewers who may not have read the books, but in so doing he robbed the story of some elements of Tolkien's rich, detailed world. While the theatrical versions were decent, I much prefer the EE's and will not likely watch the theatricals again, unless it's with my children one day.

    Anyway, back to The Hobbit. The nods to Angmar and the Witch King tie in nicely with LOTR, but - again - if viewers don't have a knowledge of the books, they won't know that Rhudaur was one of the three kingdoms carved out of Arnor (with Arthedain and Cardolan being the others) following the death of the 10th King. I'm still scratching my head over the film's implication that the Witch King died, though. I thought he never physically died in the books until Eowyn and Merry killed him, just faded away into the shadow realm when Sauron ensnared him with one of the Nine. If I recall correctly, he survived the fall of Angmar in 1975 TA only to disappear and later resurface in Mordor in the early 2000s. Another unnecessary change, Peter Jackson. *shakes head* I do love these films, but I wish he had stayed a little truer to the source material.

    In regards to the Legolas video above, has PJ ever explained why he had Bloom say "The Uruks turned northeast" when Isengard is almost due west of where they were?

    So the Scouring of the Shire..... 60 years early? With no Saruman or men in the Shire, and no Hobbit army, just Bilbo waving Sting at everyone saying "GET OFF MY LAWN!"?

    I think we're going to get a scene in part 2 or part 3 where Sauron shows why he's called the "Necromancer" in this era... by resurrecting the Nazgul, giving them new bodies. (of course they never really died, only their bodies were destroyed)

    I think the Hobbit Part 2 description says that Gandalf explores Dol Guldur and discovers that the Nazgul have left their graves

    Gosh, that seems like a lot of ground to cover in three hours! Are you sure they can fit it all in? :p

    Scene 1: EXT -- Dol Guldur

    A place of creepy misty ruins. RADAGAST THE BROWN and GANDALF THE GREY enter. Nine pits -- freshly-dug graves -- lie empty and spooky-looking in the decrepit soil.

    RADAGAST: Gandalf, look!
    GANDALF: Flame of Undun! The Nazgul have left their graves!
    RADAGAST: RUN!
    GANDALF: Right behind you! (Telepathically to Galadriel: HEEEELLLLLP!)

    That about covers all the bases, I think. Now what are they gonna do for 2 hours and 45 minutes? :confused:

    EDIT:

    Btw, one thing I've noticed about the Hobbit so far is that there's been no popular media buzz about it, like there was with LOTR. No one else is really commenting on it, or referencing it. Has anybody else gotten that feeling?
