Out of the Blue

Well it turned out the mea culpa I offered the other day accepting partial responsibility for the haywire advertising here was incorrect: Our ad provider told me that some older code from another source was at fault for the takeover ad some were experiencing, but after apologizing to you and looking into this, I found this to not be the case, so it was entirely on them. As you may have noticed, we've been running ad-free since then, as I removed all those codes once it became clear they were not able to determine the source of the issue. I have some new ad codes to insert from a provider we have worked with in the past, and though I don't anticipate any problems with these, please do let me know if they cause any once they go up. And once again, allow me to thank those of you willing to put up with this, as I know that this is the only site whitelisted on many of your ad-blockers. Hopefully this is the last of all this for the time being.

LOL @ Hobbit's length. How exactly did he manage to squeeze three movies out of that book is beyond me. Although with Legolas on board (who never made one appearance in Tolkien's Hobbit) maybe there is going to be some hot elven sex scenes and shit. Yeah! Right on!

In any case we are all going to go and watch it regardless.

Appendices. That is how they made 3 movies out of it. Still might be a stretch/money grab...but that is where the material is coming from in addition to the book. (at least that is what I remember reading in an interview with Jackson about a year ago)

I heard that and when I did I felt instantly assured that this could work. Tolkien wrote some ridiculously deep backstory into his Middle Earth universe, some of which sounded so interesting that they sounded like they could have been books unto themselves.
