Wow, this is awesome news. I've loved everything I've seen him in.

I didn't think it was possible, but I'm looking forward to these films all the more!

I fucking HATE Billy Connolly. This is the first disappointing news I've read about this movie.

I've been a fan of his since he took over from Johnny Fever as the Teacher on that 1980s Sitcom Head of the Class

He was funny in the 1970s, hasn't been funny in years. And he's turned into a total prima-donna. Walked offstage last week because he got heckled, made tasteless jokes about the hostage Ken Bigley while he was awaiting beheading in Iraq, then took the hump when audience members objected. Tosser.

That's not quite as bad as I thought it was, I thought he translated it from Khuzdul. Still, quite a lot of effort he put into that.

The longer contract probably made a better visual image, which is the only reason for it.

Reaction to the film's 48fps footage here. *sigh* This has me very worried. His complaints sound exactly like the ones I had about the way Public Enemies was shot. Anything higher than the standard 24fps just totally cheapens the way a film looks and feels.

Hopefully they'll have time to fix the finished project. To shoot a film like The Hobbit this badly and for the final product to look that bad is inexcuseable.

They had an article about the footage on IGN, and they weren't thrilled either. One of the big complaints they had was the the shooting method makes the CGI stuff look even more fake than it already does. I'm really hopping they can do something to fix this before the movie comes out, because it would be really disappointing for something this big to look as bad as it apparently does right now.
