Damn it! Why does news always come up on the days when I don't check, and never on the days when I actually do? I must have terrible timing.

Thanks, M'Sharak!

Smaug is seen, I hope.

Heh ... PJ almost ... almost gets me excited about the prospect of 3D. Still can't wait for TH in any dimension.

I actually got a little when they demonstrated the difference between 5k resolution and the 1080p resolution that's currently standard for television. That's crazy!

I mean the actor isn't seen. Two CGI characters if that clarifies things.

Ha, I forgot about this thread. This is from a few days ago, but this made my eyes go wide:

Why Ian McKellen turned down Gandalf

All I have to say is thank you, Bob Shaye!

Yes we would never have had the YouTube Gandalf man doing Popeye the Sailor Man. All our lives would have been poorer for it.

If there is one thing good that comes out of The Hobbit, it will be Peter Jackson shaming the rest of the film industry into doing 3D properly.

I didn't know The Hobbit movies were going to be 3D.

If there's one thing bad that comes out of The Hobbit, it will be that Peter Jackson will revive the dying 3-d movie fad.

It's plateaued now. I am hoping that means it will decline. Depending on what you read, it already is in decline.

As good as McKellen is in the X-Men films (particularly in X2), the Magneto role is nothing compared to Gandalf. I'm glad TPTB found a way to accommodate McKellen's talents for LOTR.

Isn't 35mm film at a 8K resolution though? Or is that 70mm?

They used film when filming the LOTR films didn't they? Does that mean that the Hobbit films will be of a lower resolution than the other films?

Actually, film doesn't have a resolution. 5K should look at least as sharp and clear as 35mm film if not moreso, especially when shot at 48 fps.
