no but really according to fandom u can be a great character just by making the right facial twitches if ur a dude but if ur a chick u need to hold your breath while counting to a million and juggle a thousand pointy objects while reasserting ur dominance over the human race but also be rlly nice to the fan fave white dudes bUT NOT TOO NICE bc that means u might poke a hole in a ship and u can do all that but then u breathe wrong for half a second and everyone hates u
I love you!!!
Countdown to The Desolation of Smaug: 8 days
I went to the midnight showing of the hobbit and it was really nice and there was a group of people who performed the misty mountains song before the movie and a lot of people were dressed up and i didn’t get a panic attack and i survived and there were actually some parts of the movie which i liked and everything was really nice
Here’s a new shot of me as The Doctor paying his respects to Ianto Jones. Hope you guys like it :)
The Hobbit: AUJ filmmakers’ commentary:
Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens share some interesting facts about the movie
- In case some didn’t know, the dwarf next to Thorin is Peter Jackson
- The claw in Frodo’s hands ended up being too small to be Smaug’s (but we can still pretend it is)
- The part about Glamdring not glowing was also because it didn’t glow in LOTR
"you’re coming with me, Crane"
i have catlike reflexes by which i mean i’m easily startled and freeze in place before sprinting out of the room when threatened
… [Viggo Mortensen] had one of his front teeth knocked out when filming a sword-fighting scene in THE TWO TOWERS, but insisted on carrying on without it.
Taking no chances, producers on the set feared the tooth trouble would worsen and ordered him to visit a dentist.
He recalls, “I asked them to superglue the tooth so we could keep going but they didn’t think that was a good idea.
"It was getting close to lunchtime so we kept going and I was gumming it until lunch, and then they sent me to a dentist and after lunch we kept going.
"Anyway, now it’s replaced and it’s my proudest and strongest tooth."
That’s what I’m talking about, bitch.
I’m glad that Bilbo Baggins exists
Because in the book, the dude was pretty firmly middle aged when his crazy-ass adventure started
He was settled down in the house that belonged to his parents and had done precisely jack shit with his life
It gives me hope that maybe some nutcase wizard will eventually show up and be like yo
you’re a burglar now
don’t even care that you didn’t roll rogue homie we got dragons to slay and kingdoms to save
