    Wouldn't work cause a lot of stuff would have been cut and the pacing probably wouldn't be good so the smartest thing to do was turn it into 3 movies.

    Plus the Bombur scene was shot so more than likely it will be in the EE and it would be pointless if Gandalf introduced the Dwarfs to Beorn since we already know who they are.

    There's already been more confirmed Dol Guldur stuff as well. That made me a happy camper, because the Dol Guldur stuff was my favorite part of the movie.

    You make some good points, it's just that the Beorn scene is my favorite of the book. It's hilarious. Gandalf's like, I hope you don't mind but I brought a dwarf with me. Oh ya, I brought one more. Oh, ya forgot about this one too! Lol.

    Well that isn't confirmed, Richard Armitage said we might see it in the EE

    According to the Home Media of the The Hobbit series Wikipedia page, it's expected that the movie will come out on Blu Ray in March

    I'm excited by this routine and typical release schedule!

    That's also my very favorite scene in the books. However, I can't see that working in the film unless they severely cut down on how many times Gandalf said "look another one", in the same vein as not having all 13 dwarves show up in ones & twos at Bilbo's house.

    Some news from the web:

    TDOS suitably impresses the Academy's VFX branch at their bake-off:
    http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/the-vfx-bakeoff-mixing-old-school-and-new-school

    The next article concerning the weapons of the Dwarves, this time about Dwalin's arsenal:
    http://thorinoakenshield.net/2014/01/11/dwalin-weapons-of-a-veteran/

    And a happy birthday to our original memetic Elf, Orlando Bloom. From his memorable line about taking certain Hobbits to Isengard to the one when he sneaks up on a would-be Dwarven King, from his tendency to state the obvious to his friendly contest with one Gimli, sone of Gloin, one thing is sure: both trilogies would not be the same without his contributions. Because a good meme bears being repeated one more time, and because he is kind enough to not take himself too seriously, here is one of his most famous videos:

    Finally going to see DOS tonight, it's actually playing in IMAX and English! I've never seen a movie in IMAX before, so I'm pretty excited, even if my expectations based on AUJ aren't particularly high.

    It drives me nuts how long they make us wait for the Extendeds :_|

    I know, it sucks.

    Wonder how long the Extended will be.

    I am thinking 30 minutes of extended footage this time. It seems like there was a lot more cut here than with AUJ.

    Yes, but the wait for the EEs is usually well worth it... and I anticipate with great pleasure the day I will be able to do a Ultimate Middle-Earth Movie Marathon, with the Hobbit and LOTR trilogies watched back-to-back. If anything, it's going to be a mini-event in and of itself.

    By the time we're able to do that I'll have accrued a week's worth of paid vacation. My plans have been laid down.

    The only thing TDOS:EE needs to do to impress me is not have any naked dwarves.

    I was hoping to find some sort of funny nude dwarves pic. I googled. I shalt never do so again and must now go wash my eyes out with soap.

    I wouldn't mind a shirtless Thorin, though. Yes, I did admit to just that. And I assume all consequences. Fangirl is as fangirl does.

    Which isn't to say I cannot talk of Tolkien in more elevated ways, but I also acknowledge that a tale's appeal need not always reside in the stratosphere...

    I just have no idea what to say to this.

    I mean, dwarves?!

    You play D&D, you know the race. What on earth could you have expected other than what you likely got?!
