Elijah Wood - Frodo Baggins.


In one of the LOTR special features, Peter Jackson said that movies like LOTR shouldn’t be made by people who didn’t understand special effects because it would be very easy for special effects to overwhelm the movies in a bad way.

The armies (both good and evil) in LOTR consisted of hundred of extras in painstakingly detailed armor and make-up. Yes, it was time-consuming, but it looks real.

In the Hobbit movies, pretty much every character outside of Thorin & Company is computer generated. Lurtz was a human in make-up, and Azog and Bolg are computer generated, and you notice the difference. Lurtz looks like a real-life threat. Azog and Bolg look like video game villains. The realism is completely sucked away, and you feel like you’re simply observing instead of feeling immersed.

In short, Peter has become the very type of director that he warned against when he was making LOTR.

and there are many paths to tread.

The Desolation of Smaug

what she says: i'm fine
what she means: Do not speak to me of dragon fire. I know its wrath and ruin. I have faced the great serpents of the north. I warned your grandfather what his greed for gold would bring. He did not listen. You are no different. Stay here and rot if you wish. A hundred years is the blink of an eye in the life of an elf. I am patient. I can wait.
