What’s your Hobbit name?

wtf did they pop with a needle or something that’s not Peter Jackson

movie is going to be great I think

awesome :smiley:

that needs a little more capslock:


can’t wait

edit: goosebumps when hearing last words of the video(don’t want to spoil)

another edit:
The LOTR-movies were the first(and to date) only ones that were better than the books(in my opinion)(and yes, I read some books and watched the films to them)
Is the book “The Hobbits” worthwhile?(I think I gonna wait for the film anyway so I don’t spoil it’s epicness)

He lost all his excess weight during the production of the LOTR movies.

edit: holy shit, Martin Freeman, I love that guy!


I couldn’t see the LOTR films in the cinema because I were too young and I had no interest in it so I will DEFINITELY go to the Hobbit.

My eyes teared up a bit at watching this, and I’m not even embarrassed to say it. Gonna be amazing.

Seeing Peter Jackson so thin makes me somehow sad. Looks like he has aids or something.

This is going to be epic. Like, actually epic. I can’t wait to see how he does Smaug. The fight with Bard is gonna be sweet.

Why, now he will live longer to make more good movies.

I’m pretty excited for this, if you guys haven’t noticed I make LOTR references occasionally on these forums.

Sweet, can’t wait to see Persbrandt as Beorn

This. A billion times time.

Here’s Peter Jackson’s second video blog in HD.

shit looks expensive

The second greatest epic series of the history.
1st is Star Wars

Does Matrix come third?

Also… YAY! Hobbit looks awesome!
I’ve never read any Tolkien books … but somehow I have this one in Russian, Хоббит.

Matrix Trilogy had one great movie. Does not qualify.

That doesn’t mean it can’t compete. I mean, he ranked Star Wars over Lord of the Rings, even though Lord of the Rings will soon have more great movies than the three of Star Wars.

i c wut u did thar

Star wars has six episodes (+ huge number of sub-episodes)
