    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.

    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.

    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. :laugh:

    My favorite LOTR filming story...

    http://www.latimes.com/entertainmen...saruman-peter-jackson-20150611-htmlstory.html

    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

    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)?

    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
