    Well, I think squirrels are pretty cute, you think a stadium hotdog would include that ?

    Only in Chicago.

    Looks like Peter Jackson has announced that there are going to be three Hobbit films now.

    Is he just going to play all the 48fps at half speed to make his 48fps filming worthwhile?

    Speaking of cows, looks like somebody's milking a certain cash-cow franchise.

    If he does as good a job as he did with the LotR trilogy then I'm quite happy to watch as many Tolkien films as he cares to make.

    Is that true? I don't know how you'd stretch the hobbit to three films. MAYBE two.
    but regardless, when it comes to tolkien I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

  • DMACDMAC Super Moderator, Moderator mod
    Yeah, they've confirmed that it's going to be a trilogy... somehow.

    That means that there's going to be a movie for roughly every 100 pages of the book.

    It's Peter Jackson and I hope that he's going to treat the material with respect but I'm kind of getting the impression that we're going to be spending a lot of time on the other things that were supposed to be going on around the same time as the events of the Hobbit. Could be good or it could feel like filler.

    I am now fervently interested in not seeing all three of them!

    I'm mostly in the naturalist camp of animal-chewing-on. Meat-eating is a thing humans do, and have always done, and will likely always do. If you have ideological reasons for not doing so, I'm not going to naysay that unless you naysay me. I might even admire your dedication to a specific, largely symbolic restraint, but the second you start tossing "meat is murder" around in public you lose a lot of respect from me.

    I too wondered how The Hobbit could be made into 3 films when it weighs in at about 250 pages, when the LoTR trilogy's books were ~500 each and the films had to cut a lot of things.

    But then
    We know how much of the story of Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf, the Dwarves of Erebor, the rise of the Necromancer, and the Battle of Dol Guldur will remain untold if we do not take this chance. The richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, allows us to tell the full story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the part he played in the sometimes dangerous, but at all times exciting, history of Middle-earth.

    So it sounds like they're gonna do a bit less "fast fowarding" than LoTR, and pulling stuff from the other books that contribute to informing Middle-Earth at the time of The Hobbit that was not necessarily written explicitly within "There and Back Again". Which is fine by me, because I sure as hell never read that stuff.

    We do eat a shitload of meat though. Way more than we, as a species, have ever needed to.

    Really, nobody ever needs to eat a steak. Ever. You pretty much can't order a steak as small as the size of steak your body actually needs.

    Largely true, although in a world of non-fortified foods and no preservatives red meat served a lot of needs that we don't now have. I certainly agree that human diet is way meat-heavy in first-world countries.

    I'm driving cross country starting wednesday. A little daunting!

    Should be fine though, I've done plenty of long distance driving, but this is going to span 7-9 days as we will be making various stops for family etc as we go from Rhode Island to Southern Cali... so its still an order of magnitude larger than any drive I've done before.

    The last movie is going to be a musical featuring all the songs from the LOTR books that he had to cut out of the screenplay.

    It was delicious. But also a mistake.

    I'm skeptical even of the split into two movies. The Hobbit is really just Bilbo's story and everything else is background. It's very unlike LotR.

    I also had with it:
    - Two large pieces of complimentary bread
    - Two giant empanadas
    - The entire side of sweet potato fries
    - A molten lava cake

    It was my birthday and probably my most gluttonous moment. I... did not have much fun later.

    I feel like now people will have the wrong picture of me :P
    I don't usually eat like that.
