Hall of Fire Chats for September 29th and 30th
Strider @ 18:06 PST

Words cannot describe the beauty of the Fellowship of the Ring Trailer II that was shown this Monday. If there were any doubts about Peter Jackson's adaption of the films, at least we know visually he has gotten it right. But what do you think? Did Monday's new trailer have you welling up inside? Did it fill you with a sense of pride as a Tolkien fan? Or was it the complete opposite, and do you think it's all gone horribly, horribly wrong? This weekend, we're going to be talking about the Fellowship of the Ring : Trailer II.

This weekend's discussion will be much more than just people's likes or hate, we'll also be discussing the scenes we saw in the trailer themselves, how they are connected to the books, how true they are to the novels and what we can deduce from the scenes themselves. Can a scene be improved on in the films by making additions on what it is based on in the book?

What about the score? What about the increasingly farmilir music that seems to have been tinkered with and given some more depth. Do you like it? And what about those quotes? "Come and claim him" and the passionate and heart-felt "You...shall...not...pass!". I don't know about you guys, but that made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end! And that's what we want this weekend....your opinions, because that's what counts. So drop by this weekend on one of our three different discussion times and join another hugely-popular Trailer discussion. They've been a hit in the past, and this time should be no different!
