the hobbit production diaries


James Nesbitt // Production Diaries


When I saw this clip in the Production Diaries for The Hobbit, I just about died laughing. I couldn’t believe my eyes and went back to make sure I just saw what I thought I saw. XD Makes it look like “JACKASS: Middle Earth” with the guys standing around watching and filming lol! Think I’m immature all you like, but I hope to god this little gem makes it into the second movie. In part because I find slapstick humor funny, so sue me. And partly because I hope that they don’t make Bilbo a super action hero after the finale of the first installment. I really don’t want to see him portrayed as a perfectly competent fighter, so I think moments like this would provide both levity and character moments that remind us that he is just an average person, after all. Poor Bilbo. And poor Martin Freeman, hope he had an industrial strength sports cup. 

My Aidan Turner You Tube playlist

Ok so you may have noticed from late looking at my blog that I have developed a thing for Aidan Turner. I’ve been going on You Tube a lot lately to watch various videos of him and developed a playlist. It was then I thought that those on Tumblr who also like Aidan Turner might want to see some (or all) of these videos so I thought I’d share them with you all!

These are videos that I like to watch so they don’t cover everything but if you want to contribute more links re-blog, add your links and pass it on to your followers. There are a couple of fan made videos which I like to watch but there are only a couple promise - everything else is interviews and scenes from various things he has been in so here we go!

He talks about Martin in the production diaries and discusses stealing Aidan Turner’s underpants in retaliation for a prank Aidan pulled during filming of a battle scene in BotFA

Even Peter Jackson hated making The Hobbit, and JF Sargent has evidence.

5 Behind-the-Scenes Features That Show Why Movies Went Wrong

#5. The Hobbit Production Diaries Show That Peter Jackson Is Tired and Old

I checked out the special features, to see if they could explain why this movie is that thing it is and … well, here are some quotes, taken totally at random, from the production diaries and “The Appendices” found only on the extended Blu-ray:

“This is a nightmare.” -Peter Jackson

“I asked Peter Jackson if he was going to do The Hobbit and he said, ‘No, I’m not interested in doing that.’” -Elijah Wood.

“[This movie] made me feel like I should stop acting.” -Sir Ian McKellen

Sure, all those lines are said as jokes – but it’s the only type of joke anyone is making.
