You should probably tell her about you two. It's not healthy to keep things from your wife like that. ;)

None of the video I've got on mine came from the iTunes store; I just dragged and dropped it in and it worked fine.

Just give me a shout at any time. It IS a lot to take in and despite doing it for years I did slip up here and there.

Thanks a lot. :)

I'm becoming too adorable to her, it seems.

Is that a good sign or a bad sign?

Pre-re-redesign? You're talking about 2007, right?
Yes.
I still liked those auras but the new ones don't gaze into your eyes so it feels more of a background. As much as I liked gold aura, I'll admit that the colours were a little too bright.

Yeah, the curse of being a mod: Not being able to change your aura.

The Animated Series doesn't have a strict canon. They are standalone episodes that rarely make references to previous events. They are able to cater for many villains in the Batman franchise so it works out great. Some villains they've not even put on the films yet so their light shines better here.

So, it's like a "reboot"? It can help a series, but you have to be careful with that. For example, I don't undestand why they needed to produce just another Spiderman movie that shows how Peter Parker becomes spiderman... but a different Spiderman from a different universe.

Also, MJ >>>>> Gwen Stacy.

12 days now I believe. I was going to make a thread about it in General and ask why NG'ers aren't voting. In the hope that some actually would and help clear up the logjam in The Portal. There's probably also a stack of submissions below the Latest 50 Under Judgements that have been sitting there for days. Wade even made an appearance in the Chat the other day and asked people to go vote to help clear it up but alas it fell on deaf ears. Sad days indeed.

Oh, sorry. Anyway, the guys in the sig are supposed to be me (the tazer) and my old friend from high school (the tazee) - I was such a great friend. :P

As far as name changing goes, I honestly do miss being able to screw around with my alias. I don't think I'd have it changed now, though -I've just had it for way too long to do so. (Same thing with my sig.)

I think it's simply a case of the elevated amount of submissions we've had in February overwhelming what little users are voting on a daily basis. I've honestly never seen anything like it before, though -not for this many days in a row, anyway. (Seems like so long ago when 10 or more UJ's at any given time was a lot. And whatever happened to waking up in the morning and seeing that a handful of submissions had passed while I was asleep?) :P

So that's why I keep seeing 50+ UJ. Shame it's come to this now. Maybe the only way to settle this is to reduce the vote threshold to 150. It seems the voters aren't like how they were back in the day.

You can't really have much faith in this site's community, it seems.

I was thinking about it as well. So maybe we should just do it. ^^

Just go to the "Under Judgement" page instead of the classic portal and you can see all the flashes that are under judgement (d'uh). On some of those I have voted three days in a row... it's really sad.

Exactly. There's a time and place for comic relief -that wasn't one of them.

Indeed. You'd expect them to keep at least some level of seriousness. I just hope they won't go too far with comic relief in the next two films.

Yeah I agree. I liked how they kept his appearance a bit of a mystery.

As for the Necromancer, my only concern with him is that he might take the wind out of Smaug's sails as the main villain. I just hope they'll keep it more as a sideplot and still keep Smaug as the major bad guy they have to beat.
I never really considered that... I'm honestly surprised at how much attention the Necromancer received in the movie, considering it was just more of a plot device in the book, foreshadowing Sauron's rise in LOTR. It'll be interesting to see how it develops, anyway.

I bet they want to work to a DUN DUN DUN! moment for those not familiar with Tolkien's novels.

To be honest though, I wasn't sure who the Necromancer was either until I looked it up after I watched the film. It feels a bit like I spoiled a major plot twist there.

Fine if you haven't read The Hobbit, but even from the film itself it becomes obvious that it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings.
Yes. Also, how can you miss all the talk going on, that Jackson is now brining THE PREQUEL to the cinemas now?

Indeed. But I guess there's always a large crowd that doesn't really care all that much about what they're watching.

Well if I remember correctly, he says something like: "Not fair!" but I don't hear him mentioning it's against the rules or that it isn't a riddle. In fact, he even starts trying to guess it.
Yes, he complains about it but Bilbo insists, so Gollum doesn't really have a choice.

Yeah okay, but he could've just refused and eat Bilbo :p

I thought this part was adapted well in the movie. Bilbo even does fiddle around with the ring before he asks that question, just as it is described in the book.

Yeah they nicely paid attention to the details. As they should, because it was definitely the major scene of this first part.

By the way, for some reason I always imaged that Gollum was sitting on that island during the scene and didn't actually see Bilbo, but I suppose I misread something in the book.

Yeah I would still like to get my hands on them someday. I believe we do have the films on DVD, but I don't think they contain many extras.
DVD. LOL! :P
I have bought the BluRay-Box on the last Amazon "Cyber Monday". It was money well spent, since the additional scenes add so much more value to the movies... the only thing that pisses me off slighty is that there are sometiems different camera angles for the same scenes in both versions. ^^

I can imagine Lord of the Rings would be awesome to watch on Blu-Ray. The thing is that I don't have a Blu-Ray player (yet) because we still have one of those old fashioned TVs with a (relatively) small screen. I don't think I'd notice much difference between DVDs and Blu-Rays on such a TV.

You're talking about Star Wars, right?
Of course. Are there any other shitty movies with "Episode I - III" in the title? ^^

No I guess not, but just checkin' :p

I gave it some serious thought Haggard but in the end I decided against it because I figured that anyone who read the thread would just go and blindly vote 5 on everything under judgement and what little chance we have of gaining any Blam points, well, you know the rest. But if you feel it's worth it, please be my guest and make the thread.

I'll be happy if they keep it where it belongs... Hopefully they don't ruin Smaug by turning him into a clown.

I bet they want to work to a DUN DUN DUN! moment for those not familiar with Tolkien's novels.

As in discovering the Necromancer is the reemergence of Sauron?

To be honest though, I wasn't sure who the Necromancer was either until I looked it up after I watched the film. It feels a bit like I spoiled a major plot twist there.

I didn't know for sure, either, (though I did suspect it was Sauron) after reading The Hobbit for the first time. I ultimately decided to look it up, just to know for sure. :P

Thank You

Coop :P :P :P

Fine if you haven't read The Hobbit, but even from the film itself it becomes obvious that it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings.
Yes. Also, how can you miss all the talk going on, that Jackson is now brining THE PREQUEL to the cinemas now?
Indeed. But I guess there's always a large crowd that doesn't really care all that much about what they're watching.

Just as there's always a large crowd that seems to be just stupid.

Well if I remember correctly, he says something like: "Not fair!" but I don't hear him mentioning it's against the rules or that it isn't a riddle. In fact, he even starts trying to guess it.
Yes, he complains about it but Bilbo insists, so Gollum doesn't really have a choice.
Yeah okay, but he could've just refused and eat Bilbo :p

Bilbo still had a sword.

I thought this part was adapted well in the movie. Bilbo even does fiddle around with the ring before he asks that question, just as it is described in the book.
Yeah they nicely paid attention to the details. As they should, because it was definitely the major scene of this first part.
By the way, for some reason I always imaged that Gollum was sitting on that island during the scene and didn't actually see Bilbo, but I suppose I misread something in the book.

You know, I always imagined the same thing. So maybe he just does sit on his island in the book. But that wouldn't have been very interesting to watch, so they changed it a bit in the movie.

Yeah I would still like to get my hands on them someday. I believe we do have the films on DVD, but I don't think they contain many extras.
DVD. LOL! :P
I have bought the BluRay-Box on the last Amazon "Cyber Monday". It was money well spent, since the additional scenes add so much more value to the movies... the only thing that pisses me off slighty is that there are sometiems different camera angles for the same scenes in both versions. ^^
I can imagine Lord of the Rings would be awesome to watch on Blu-Ray. The thing is that I don't have a Blu-Ray player (yet) because we still have one of those old fashioned TVs with a (relatively) small screen. I don't think I'd notice much difference between DVDs and Blu-Rays on such a TV.

Well, I have a PS3, so I also have a BluRay-Player. But yes, you should get one of those nice Plasma- or LCD-TVs as soon as possible. I used to have the PS3 hooked up to an CRT-TV via RCA Jacks (those cables with two audio -red and white- and one video output -yellow-). It looked OK. Then, we got a Plasma-TV and I used that RCA Cable to hook up the PS3 there. It looked a lot better. Than I bought a HDMI Cable... it's a difference as great as day and night!

But it's not like he's an experienced sword fighter or anything and Gollum is pretty strong for such a little guy. I'd put my money on Gollum if the two were to fight it out.

Ah so I might have been right about it after all. I discussed it with my girlfriend who read the book again right before we went to see the film, and she said they got it correct in the film.

I can imagine Lord of the Rings would be awesome to watch on Blu-Ray. The thing is that I don't have a Blu-Ray player (yet) because we still have one of those old fashioned TVs with a (relatively) small screen. I don't think I'd notice much difference between DVDs and Blu-Rays on such a TV.

The problem is that we're only uni students though, so we don't have that much money to spare. As long as our current TV still works I don't feel like making the purchase yet.

As soon as I get a fancy TV I'll definitely make the switch to Blu-Rays though. I don't think I'll have much of a choice anyway :p

Is he known for being a badass? Sorry I know nothing about actors/voice actors. (Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit were like the only movies that I've watched in the last 10 years or so.)

Yeah like:

It would be interesting, but they'd have to deviate pretty far from the book to make him anything more than a LOTR cameo.

I read it was vaguely referenced in the book, but I was probably like "whatever, this can't be important" when I was at that bit.

Guess it was too vague for me to pick up on, too. I'm sure I'd be like "DUH!" if I read through it again now, though. :P
