Still don't understand why it's two movies. Okay I know it's to make more money but artistically it's not a good idea. After all the time wasted in the LoTR trilogy with lingering close-ups and soaring music, I have a bad feeling about this.
You answered your own question. Two movies doubles the revenues while the costs are only marginally higher. Voila, two films.

That time was surely not wasted! More, please!

I just saw this. I'm glad PJ released an official version because the fan-made version had Thorin's sword covering another Dwarf's face.

For some reason that's not accessible. You have to go in through the main link to the site. (Huh.... now I can get to it directly...)

However, the sword from fan made version on TORN didn't so much cover another dwarf's face as it cut across his neck.

FYI, that's Dwarvish for "More, please!" (feel free to accompany this post with the soaring cues from "The Bridge of Khazad-Dum").

Let us not go to Khazad'dum. It is a silly place.

Trouble is, if the dwarves go there, Kosh won't be able to help them.

Any word yet on whether Howard Shore will be returning to score the movie(s)? It would surely be a crime if he wasn't able to do it.

Don't worry. He's definitely returning and has already started work on the scores.

Damn, I was hoping for Hans Zimmer.

You can see if it's cached, so either go to the main site or refresh.
