Peter Jackson Archive

  • I can talk about The Hobbit, the movie that everybody has supposedly been waiting for. The blockbuster of the year. But, after three hours of nonstop dwarves and data dumping, I can honestly say that I’ve had about enough of the epic fantasy for now. The truth is that The Hobbit measured frighteningly short, though – considering that Peter Jackson took a very slim children’s book and turned it into an epic the length of Lord of the Rings – I had expected something like this. Where with Lord of the Rings the screen writers took out most of the unnecessary facts with The Hobbit they did exactly the opposite. They added stuff. And yes, I know it was in […]

They both are the youngest of the dwarves and have the Durin royal blood.  I was a little confused since these guys look more like Elves with facial hair than Dwarves.  Oh well, they look pretty damn cool.

  • Feast your eyes upon the Dwarves from the new Hobbit movie.  Depicted here is Nori, Ori, and Dori from the Hobbit played by Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, and Mark Hadlow respectively. Peter Jackson is directing two new movies based on the Hobbit by J.R.R.

The first of two installments “There and Back […]
