Plus it all helps them get into character. Sitting down for that long while they put the makeup on is bound to make someone angry and cranky, just like an orc.

ya I know! how agonisingly boring that must be! Not to mention about 10 ppl all around you debating whether ur hairy ears are crooked enough! Which were the best orcs, by way of makeup - the goblins or the uruk hai? I mean you gotta love the big blueness that is Lertz! he musta had a hell of a time getting all blued up like that, but he played a great orc whoever he was

all the hobbit people say the amount of time it took to put on the feet was amazing........and disgusting. they had to slide their foot into it and get it covered in cold glue :dead:

I thought Boromir in the movie was a lot more sympathetic than in the books. Both the writing and the actors portrayal made him softer, like him teaching the hobbits to fight and his speech in Lorien. I just didn't have the same feeling about him when reading the book.

Seeing as I'd never read the Hobbit before I read LOTR, I didn't really have a clue what Hobbits were supposed to look like.

It wasn't til it got the mt caradhras I realised how small they actulally were!

i read the hobbit waaaaaaaaaaaaaay before i read LOTR. i hadn't even read it by the time the film was out, but have read it 8 times since.

i was on holiday when i started to read it, but it didn't reall have much time, and the pages were falling out cos it was a very old book, so i had to wait for my daddy to get me a new one before i could read it, and i got one for christmas!
