THE FILM

We are at the end of this ‘Hobbit‘ trilogy with ‘The Battle of the Five Armies‘. The last three years seem to have gone by fairly fast. It seems like yesterday when I was writing about Warner Bros. heading back to Middle Earth with the ‘Hobbit‘. I was super stoked about it, because I was such a huge fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy. I think I saw each of those films five times in the theater, owned each version that came out on DVD and Blu-ray, and went back to see them when they were re-released. I just can’t get enough of the ‘LOTR‘ films. But shortly after the announcement that we were receiving a ‘Hobbit‘ film, things started going downhill.

We’ve waited for it, and if you’re like me you’ve scoured the interwebs looking for any sign of an official trailer to the final chapter from Peter Jackson’s J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’. It is here!!!  Just released, I watched, I got goosebumps, then I began this post.

Film Review: ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

desolation-of-smaug-dragon

And we’ve arrived in the 2nd year of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy with ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, and let me tell you, it’s a big improvement on the last film, which was released the same time last year. First off, we don’t have to spend a half hour inside Bilbo’s home with thirteen dwarves eating, drinking, and singing songs about washing dishes and Bilbo’s unhappy attitude. In this sequel things start off fast and to the point, which is sure to excite all audiences. Still, adapting J.R.R Tolkien’s less than 300 page novel into three separate films might be a bit much, but damn if it isn’t fun and highly entertaining this time around with a giant fire breathing dragon, some epic battles, a familiar elf, and an escape from orcs that I could watch 100 times in a row and never tire of. Just like the previous films set in Middle Earth, I expect another billion dollars for Jackson and co.

Hi, Bryan Here….

first-poster-for-the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug-released

We are halfway there, folks. Peter Jackson’s middle sequel in his Hobbit series is coming out December 13th from Warner Bros. and it looks amazing. Here is your first look at the film, which we get to see full on, the dragon known as Smaug, which is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. I enjoyed the first film, but felt like there was something lacking from it, as you can read HERE. This looks intense and much better thatn ‘An Unexpected Journey‘. I can’t wait.

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-hobbit

I’m not too surprised at this and congratulate everyone involve with this, but this happend, because of the extra charges for 3D and the 48 fps.  I’m curious to see how much all three ‘Lord of the Rings’ films would have made if they charged what they did with ‘The Hobbit‘ back then.  So far, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘ has made over $940 million worldwide since it debuted in theaters December 14th.  This is more than ‘The Two Towers‘ and ‘Fellowship‘.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Film Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Welcome back to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson‘s version of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, which covers the first six chapters of the 19 chapter book, is very faithful to the original material. Jackson has gone back to the world that made him a household name and literally translated verbatim from page to screen, which is sure to blow the minds of fans of the book. However, at its almost 3 hour run-time, ‘The Hobbit‘ feels sluggish and never seems to pick up any sort of pace.  That being said, i have no doubt this movie will make hundreds of millions of dollars before the year is over.

Check Out the new TV Spot for ‘The Hobbit’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the first TV spot for Peter Jackson’s ‘Hobbit’ film.  Short and sweet, just like Hobbits.  Whoa, that sounded creepy. Synopsis: “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield.”

Hi, Bryan Here…

The host of Comedy Central’s ‘Colbert Report’, Stephen Colbert has been a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and his work for a long time.  Colbert has mentioned his fandom about Tolkien’s works on his Comedy Central show for years now.  Well, it looks like Mr. Peter Jackson has made one of his dreams come true.  A source close to the project has confirmed that Jackson has added Mr. Colbert to the film trilogy, however it won’t be the upcoming ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, which is set to release December 14 of this year.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Peter Jackson just confirmed the he will split ‘The Hobbit’ into three films, just like he did with his ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy.  The third film will be released in the summer of 2014.  Jackson talked a little bit about this at Comic-Con recently, but nothing was final.  Jackson explained that he had “a wealth of storytelling that came from 125 pages of appendices that JRR Tolkien included in a later publication of ‘Return of the King’.

Hi Bryan Here….

Good news everyone.  Billy Connolly has joined the cast in the role of Dain Ironfoot, a great dwarf warrior and cousin of Thorin Oakenshield.  Such good news.  Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh took a hiatus from ‘The Hobbit’ to introduce the ‘West Memphis Three’ documentary at Sundance, since they funded quote a bit of the DNA testing for the freedom of the three guys. Once back on ‘The Hobbit’, they cast Connolly.

Hi Bryan Here….

Peter Jackson declined last minute to come to comic-con due to his epic ‘Hobbit’ double feature wasn’t near ready yet to bee seen, but he did give us a tiny glimpse into Middle Earth once again.  This is going to be epic.  Enjoy the picture above.

Hi Bryan Here….

Here’s a photo of the three brother dwarves Nori (Jed Brophy), Ori (Adam Brown) and Dori (Mark Hadlow) as they’ll look in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by Peter Jackson.  I must say they look amazing.  Man ‘The Hobbit’ cannot come out fast enough.  ALl these images of Bilbo and Gandalf lately are just amping me up.  I’m sure there will be tons more images and videos coming in the near future.

Hi Bryan Here….

My Geek-o-meter is full on Bat-Shit Awesome right now.  Seeing all these production stills and interviews with the cast and crew of “The Hobbit” is just getting me more and more excited and then Peter Jackson unloaded this ten minute video production diary on me.  And HOLY SHIT.  Seeing all these images of some of my favorite sets and characters again has made me go insane to get back to Middle Earth as soon as possible.  I am totally looking forward to watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy again.
