Re: The 4K Release of Lord of the RIngs and The Hobbit

Yeah, but that's not new footage. I mean stuff like Faramir and Eowyns wedding, or cut scenes from Arwen at Helms Deep. Stuff we've heard about but never seen. And lets be honest, it will all be on youtube within a few weeks, so not sure I'd spend €250 on anything less than a recut and re-edited ver...

I shall claim full amends for every fall and stubbed toe, if you do not lead us well

Re: What are you reading?

I just read "I am C3P0: The Inside Story" by Anthony Daniels. Very enjoyable, although its very much about playing C3P0 and nothing else. You gain no insight into his other roles (I was interested in his Legolas with Bakshi) or his private life.

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

I have to admit, this concerns me. I expect a lot more CGI and Studio work, and less location shots. Game of Thrones was easy to film here because it was gritty, not ethereal.

Re: What are you reading?

That said, I suspect they borrow heavily from the books, so its closer to Sherlock in that way. But I haven't read the books so I may be w...
