Tweet of the Day, OK, After THIS I’m Done edition.

This being:

I had not, in fact, seen this one.  And when I clicked I wasn’t expecting much. Now I’m just yelling at the screen Sing the whole thing! Sing all of the words! SING THEM ALL! (more…)

Week to go on the last Hobbit flick.

Well, it’s out on Wednesday, but I probably won’t be able to see it on Wednesday, so I’ll see it on Thursday. I’ve had fun watching these, although I will freely admit that they weren’t as absolutely awesome as The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  They’re just reasonably awesome… which is more of a problem than one might think.  I mean, how can a film measure up against The Fellowship of the Ring, which was just insanely ridiculously good?  It seems almost unfair to expect it to.

Oh, well.  Reasonably awesome will, in fact, do.

The inevitable ‘Battle of the Five Armies Trailer’ post.

Half of you will hate it, half of you will love it – and half of you who hate it will be going to see it on the first night anyway, and half of you who love it will be wincing at That Scene (you’ll know it when you see it, trust me). Me? …I’m good, thanks.

“The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies” teaser trailer.

Cannot. Wait.

 

What’s that?  ‘Liberties taken with the text?’ Sorry, Peter Jackson is too busy doing the fiddly bits in a final movie in a trilogy that’s just for me.  Not that he can even hear you, over the sound of all that money

Two things about this Hobbit parody.

A couple of things about this:

First off: this is what happens when a song stops being contemporary and starts being myth. I mean, compare that parody to this one*:

The latter assumes that you’ve seen the original; the first merely assumes that you know of the original. Completely different humor.

…Yeah. The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug trailer is out.

Well now.

Some of you are going to freak out.  I’m not myself on the list of people who are freaking out, you understand: but some of you are going to watch that trailer, blink a couple time, and then manifest your inner ragenerd.  I’m not judging.  Your privilege.

So, yeah, the second Hobbit trailer.

I got one word for you.  Note that I’m not telling you whether it’s a good word, or a bad word, just that it’s a word.  Anyway:

Radagast.
