For the release of the Hobbit, Lindsay Ellis
of the Nostalgia Chick (previously
) has decided to look back at all the LOTR films in order to analyze how they changed genre film-making, expected movie length, extended cuts, the problems of adaptation, and why Eowyn and Merry are made for each other. (Fellowship Of The Ring
, Two Towers
, Return Of The King Part 1
, Part 2
) Still need more? Then why not watch Kerry Shawcross and Chris Demarais of Rooster Teeth (previously
) try to walk the 120+ mile journey across New Zealand from the filming location of Hobbiton in Matamata to the filming location of Mount Doom, Mount Ngauruhoe in A Simple Walk Into Mordor.

The LoTR musical needs Hobbits of a certain stature.
What stature is that, budding thespians might ask? Well, smoot
-height, of course! (Actually, 5'7" — or 170 cm — is the maximum height a would-be Frodo or Bilbo could be.) Another requirement is the ability to sing two songs ... and hairy appendages wouldn't hurt. So start knitting those foot-merkins
! Auditions: 18 September, Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Catherine St (tube stop: Covent Garden).

Hobbiton It's On!!!
"Yo, I'm harder than a Mithril coat / A hundred is the number of the orcs I smote / I battled Helms Deep and I took Minas Tirith / If you don't watch
out, I'll make your ass dissappeareth.
." - Lord of the Rhymes. For those of you who can't wait to see Legolas bustin' caps
again in "The Two Towers," settle down for some gangsta rap
(5.61 MB MP3), Middle Earth style
. "He's mean / he's green / Gollum beat box like you never seen!
" (via firda
