Even if you didn't your 15-20 minutes assessment is wrong by alot.



It's like saying I wish Charles Bronson gave more blank stares in the Death Wish movies
no, you're factually wrong, and my minutes assessment is not off by alot. here are the battle scenes from fellowship of the ring, with a grand total of about 15-20 minutes of fighting between the intro battle on the volcano slope, the moria one, and the final battle in the woods.







two towers battles - accumulatively 15-20 minutes. and of course i counted gandalf's return as part of the battles, even tho it is only like 2 minutes long. but it does take place at helm's deep, which is why i didn't differentiate it from my minutes assessment of the helm's deep battle as a whole.








return of the king battles - accumulatively 45-50 minutes












and your bronson analogy doesn't really make sense. bronson staring is boring, more epic battles wouldn't be.

Just spoke to a friend who's a set carpenter and he reckons he's booked in to start on some of The Hobbit sets at the end of this year. I'll see if I can get him to send me some pics once he's finished.

He say he makes more money working on the Disney sets. It's surprising how many Disney projects get made here too. Most of the time you don't even hear about them. He did mention he doesn't usually work on Jackson projects cause they don't pay that well. I guess the majority of people working on big projects don't get paid a whole hell of a lot.... but it's steady work. He works on a coupla projects a year and fucks off surfing in Bali for three months whilst waiting for another to start so I guess he doesn't do too bad out of it.
I've got another friend who does safety work on sets and gets paid pretty well overall. He has some pretty funny stories to tell about close calls on sets and whatnot. He was telling me the other day about one incident whilst working on a recent show and they'd closed off a street yet some lady drove straight through a scene whilst they were shooting...almost running over the actors.

Del Toro Confirms HOBBIT Casting Tidbits & More...

We are a LONG way from the December, 2011 release of the first installment of The Hobbit, and Director, Guillermo del Toro has been keeping anxious fans afloat with much-needed tidbits. However, according to del Toro, in just a few weeks he is going to drop a bombshell on us, revealing the answer to a question we've been asking for 5 years: "Who will play Bilbo Baggins?" (The odds currently seem to be favoring James McAvoy.)

In the meantime, in a recent interview on BBC Radio's Simon Mayo Show, del Toro has already taken the initiative to reveal some news:

Firstly, del Toro had what could be considered somewhat of a casting scoop. (Even though we've pretty much carried on the past years "knowing" it was going to happen.) Andy Serkis will return as Gollum, Ian McKellen will return as Gandalf, and Hugo Weaving will return as Elrond, all reprising their Lord of the Rings trilogy roles. Again, most any given fan would likely have never even thought that they would NOT return. However, it's still a warm and fuzzy feeling to at least get that little bit of news, straight from the horse's mouth.


Secondly, the film will take some liberties with sub-plot material that is briefly discussed in the book. Most notably among this, is Gandalf's departure from Bilbo and the Dwarves to confer with The White Council in Dol Guldur on dealing with an entity called the Necromancer (which later turns out to be Sauron himself.) We've always suspected this based on some statements, but this time, the intention to document Gandalf's quest (which is not covered greatly in the book) was articulated clearly. This is an excellent move, and should make the "Hobbit to Lord of the Rings" transition seem all the more smooth. Hopefully, it will be done in such a way that even casual audiences will be able to make the connection.

Finally, regarding Smaug the Dragon, del Toro revealed that after eight whole months of design work, they have only just “cracked the basic engineering.” It is anticipated that another six or seven months of application will be needed before the great flying, fire-breathing, gold smuggler will be in any kind of presentable form.


Smaug is going to rule.

ya it sounds good so far with the characters Reprising there roles. the thing about the LOTR is the world is so big its like star wars with endless story possibilities. If ya read the Sillmaridian or however ya spell it thats one hard read.
