The Hobbit Hole V - Where Many Paths and Errands Meet...
ecurbh

Posted on 12/11/2003 2:07:57 PM PST by ecurbh

Welcome to The Hobbit Hole!

Where Many Paths and Errands Meet...

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

It was kind of short notice, and I have gone and run out of the old Hobbit Hole without even a handkerchief!

J. didn't get to the Berlin premiere because he had to work this week on "Princess Diaries Deux", but he flew out late last night to get to the London open. If we had made the Berlin prem, you can be sure there would have been headlines about Gimli calling Aragorn an ungrateful, uninformed, friend of our enemies. J. probably would have thrown a punch or two, so it's better he wasn't there.

Don't think Viggo gives a crap about his fan base or the movie or his career. He thinks he's a "poet" first, then a "painter" and "photographer" and finally...an actor. He also thinks he'll use LOTR to promote his poetry and paintings. That's what an airhead he is. I just hope their big mouths don't turn so many people off that it affects the movie.

In spite of Jackson's personal feelings, he shot the story as Tolkien told it so it still contains God, patriotism and the triumph of good over evil...no matter what they say to deny it.

Hi Deb.... reposting your reply here because we appreciate the news and the sentiment, but we had picked up and moved to this new thread before you answered!

Thanks! I was just looking at the pics from the London Premiere.... Bless Viggo's heart, he wore the same UN shirt to the London premiere.... the airline must've lost his luggage! He is wearin' the same clothes he wore at Wellington!

he had to work this week on "Princess Diaries Deux"

Exqueeze me? A sequel? Wahooo! The first was absolutely delightful. We need many more sweet little movies like that. If JRD is in it- well, that's a double bonus. Big'ol_Freeper and I are both big fans.

We noticed that about him 'in character' too.... It worked for a Ranger.

Good luck to you guys on this great run of films ending in some Oscars. The reviews just simply couldn't be better. We are all really looking forward to seeing it next week!

PS: J.'s plane (out of LA) was delayed and he missed most of the premiere but he called to say he was going over to the "after party" and was going to do as much press as he could to deflect any damage Viggo has done. He's really ashamed of Jackson and his cast members...as is Christopher Lee, who was a member of Britain's OSS and was dropped behind enemy lines as a spy in WWII. Christopher was completely cut out of ROTK and is very disappointed.

We heard, and tell him will will look forward to seeing him in the Extended RoTK, if I understood all that correctly.

And thank JRD and Christopher for their support... let them know that we are here, and looking forward to this film.... We ain't gonna let Viggo wreck it.

Let us know about any press you see, that will help us here to keep our spirits up if the stuff hits the fan!

And as for the rest of the cast, we appreciate their work, and the fact that for the most part, they have been sensible in what they say.
