The Hobbit

A year away and already I’m getting excited.

      Now *here’s* a blog post I can give a hearty “Amen” too! ;-)
     Looks splendid. 

  • Tom Jones

    Yes, AND it is being filmed in 3D too! Couldn’t actually hear the clip because my computer is ill and will only start in Safe Mode (sans sound).

     Here’s a good trailer breakdown:

    (and Bleeding Cool is highly recommended – they often get Doctor Who, comic, movie etc stories long before anyone else! They broke the recent twitter-trending news about Watchmen 2, for example) 

  • Daryle

    Yes, it looks very good!
    Two misgivings though, based on this peek:
    i) methinks Thorin Oakenshield should be a much older ‘father’ of the Dwarves
    ii) probably nothing, but must Galadriel be twisting Gandalf’s hair? Perhaps an intimacy from her knowledge of Olorin, Elsewhere?

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
