The Hobbit comes out soon enough, and what says Tolkien more than Leonard Nimoy? That's right, nothing.

enjoy

The Hobbit was my favourite book as a kid. I'm interested to see how this movie goes.

Nimoy's song kind of gives the plot away.

I'm sure the movie will be good though, how can it not be?

I'm not going to lie, I didn't click the link until now. Great stuff right there. It really gets good around 55 seconds in.

Eventhough it's part of the series I just got the feeling from the preview that it wouldnt be up to par with the other ones.


Hope I'm wrong

As far as the books go

The Hobbit > any of the LOTR books.

You're more out of your mind than Nimoy for singing that ridiculous hobbit song.

IMO The Silmarillion is the the best Tolkein book after LOTR trilogy.

the movie will probably be good. i thought the lord of the rings movies were good regardless of whether anyone is a nerd or not. ive never read any of the books.

as for the spock video, that shit will probably play over and over in my head for at least the next few days.

Martin Freeman is a brilliant actor, i'm sure he'll do the character justice.
