I will never read a LOTR book
this is my solemn oath
When FOTR first came out Ebert and Roeper reviewed it on their show (Siskel had already died), and Roeper said something like "it's a bunch of elves, running around the forest, looking for a ring... I didn't get it"
Well, that means a lot if computer generated action scenes and not a lot of plot or character development.
Thats my biggest worry. Please be like RotK and not the Hobbit
I don’t get shitting on Jackson for the hobbit. He came onto the project late and had mere months to shoot the movies. They didn’t even have time to choreograph action scenes and the ones with live actors they basically ad libbed.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King - The Complete Recordings (Limited Edition Number Box Green 6LP)
Pretty cool story
Viggo is boss.
Also saw a bit where in the scene in Two Towers where they find the Urak-Hai camp burned by the Rohans and think Merry and Pippin were killed, when Aragorn kicked the helmet in anger, he broke his toe but played it into his scream.
My favorite LOTR filming story...
Actor Christopher Lee has died, but his memory will live on in the absolute crazy stories, poems and songs the world is currently sharing online. For instance, the time Lee gave director Peter Jackson an on-set tutorial in what it sounds like when you stab another human in the back.
While rounding up the celebrity and fan reactions via Twitter, Hero Complex saw this behind-the-scenes video of Christopher Lee on the set of "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" revealing to Jackson the actual sound a human makes when you lodge a knife in the person's unsuspecting back. Ah, classic Lee.
According to the video, Jackson was blocking a scene in which Wormtongue (Brad Dourif) stabs Saruman (Lee) in the back. Jackson goes into a long explanation about how he wants Lee to react and Lee says, "Have you any idea what kind of noise happens when somebody’s stabbed in the back? Because I do.” Lee was a veteran of World War II
So it's a Tolkien version of Finding Neverland?
more or less, yes
If you’re in NYC
I like this a lot more than the rumored Young Aragorn storyline
I can fuck with that
is the Second Age discussed in the Silmarillion or any of the other publications or just what is mentioned about it in LOTR (I don't remember if it's mentioned in the Hobbit)?
don't think too much is delved into
So if my memory serves this is like Rise of Sauron, Numenor and it’s downfall things right?
The Second Age lasted for 3441 years and ended with the downfall of Sauron's army when he was defeated by the Last Alliance of Elves and Men following the downfall of Númenor.
Yeah, the forging of the rings, Sauron corrupting numenor, Rivendell getting founded, and ends with last alliance of elves and man
Yep Numenor gets destroyed because they pissed off their deities.
trying to bring the fight to their gods on their home turf, bold strategy
I wonder if there's going to be elf nudity

You guys are barking up the wrong tree
for those who want a brief synopsis of the Second Age
I recommend reading the Silmarillion, but I also recommend taking notes along the way because it's a bit complicated and it's like a fucking Russian novel where everybody has three different names
Gandalf Dostoyevksy Grey
Pretty sure you an stream the Silmarillion on Youtube
Didn't know this
