#Hobbit trilogy

Thinking of expanding my request options to include moodboards and banner images (basic ones for now - I’m not practised enough for advanced edits just yet) etc alongside gifsets.

Could incorporate neo-khuzdul into them, if its single words or a translation has been done (I’m not confident enough in my use of the Dwarrow scholars translation tool to be able to do sentences yet).

Is there an appetite for those kind of things?

Lindsay Ellis, thanks.

I often think about how Lindsay Ellis made essentially a 3 part documentary/video essay uncovering the making of The Hobbit movies (and what could have been) and how in one of those amazing 3 parts, she said something along the lines of “female characters have to prove themselves or distinguish themselves in a way only females can, otherwise they’d be (played by) males,” hence why women characters are usually in unnecessary love plots. It’s so tragically true. I often think about that when I watch shows or movies, or just sitting in my room.

- When you decided to make three instead of two movies, wasn’t it hard to split in story arc from two into three? What do you have to change?

- Well, it was actually better. I mean, we’ve made that decision because we felt it was gonna be a better shape. It was our decision, it wasn’t the studio decision, they didn’t ever know about it. Philippa, Fran and I talked about it, and it was a complete surprise when we actually pitched the idea to the studio of doing three movies. It never came from them. I think people regarded us being like cash-grabbers what they call it, which is not the case at all. We just felt that two movies were not gonna be as satisfying in a way as three, because it allowed us to do a lot more shooting. We had story-lines and story-arcs that we weren’t really able to do when it was two films.

Every time i read about ‘the studio forcing PJ to make three Hobbit films instead of two’ (and that seems to be a commonly accepted opinion on the matter), i just ????
It gets me baffled, and a little bit frustrated, too.
Well, let’s just say i’m one of those fans Richard talks about in this interview, who enjoy every single second of each of three films ;)

Of all the LOTR & Hobbit characters, Legolas has GOT to be the least aware. He’s forever being saved by someone else, because he’s not focused on his surroundings. Just watch all 6 movies, and pay attention to him. It’s hilarious.

Both finished the Peter Jackson Hobbit trilogy and watched the Rankin Bass Hobbit from 1978 today.

I don’t see why people didn’t like the trilogy. I was very satisfied with each movie and I like how so many of the characters got fleshed out. I haven’t read the book yet, and I hear that people were pissed that the film deviated quite a bit, but I was onboard for the whole thing, with very few moments of boredom or confusion (though they did exist, of course). Now it’s on to either the original book or the LOTR trilogy.

The Rankin Bass version was interesting. Really cheesy at times, with a palpable “holiday special” vibe to it, but there were some truly great scenes in there. The Smaug scene in the mountain was definitely well-done, but the Gollum scene in the catacombs was in another league entirely – who would’ve thought that a Rankin Bass depiction would be more unsettling than the big budget variant by Jackson? I didn’t get to see this one when I was kid, but you can bet your ass that I would’ve been absolutely terrified by this scene if I had. You’re just transfixed on the screen, watching this amphibious version of Gollum with horrible eyes and a droning, deathly voice. I’m glad they spent as much time as they did on this scene (it was probably 10% of the film).
