I'm pretty sure this has been confirmed now, and I'm so excited about it. I'm glad they're going to be able to keep such continuity.

Color me indifferent. I don't deny the technological achievements in LotR but I really didn't enjoy it that much and have since tried watching it multiple times falling asleep each and every time. I still haven't made it through one movie completely

Oh my gosh, I think you just broke my heart! I can't believe anyone can fall asleep during Lord of the Rings. Wow, I guess it really isn't for everyone, but this is the first time I've heard someone say that.

Kevin Smith says it best - "Its a movie about people walking"

He's not wrong

darklordzor2653d ago

Ha! That's true, but I guess it still shocking.

I don't fall asleep and personally enjoy the movies, but you can only get so much. I mean you watch each one once and can't honestly go back to it again for at least a few months, if not more. Thats me though. I really enjoyed them a ton the very first time I watched them, but its no star Wars.

Andy Serkis did a amazing job in the LOTR films. The CG was equally as good. Golum felt like a real person rather than a CG effect. Glad to see him back. The Hobbit is a bit different than LOTR but great as well.

Crazay2654d ago

You're right he did do a good job. I can't imagine what it's like having to do what he did for so many hours for this role. I just didn't like the movies all that much. I remember really liking the Hobbit book so hopefully I'll enjoy the movie.

I know LOTR was done as CGI and other tech specs were being developed, but in todays age do you think he will have the same effect? I mean they probably don't even need an actual person acting anything now, and the voice could easily be manipulated if he decided to not return.
