  • No mortal man has ever heard the ancient saying: “One beard to rule them all, one beard to find them, one beard to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.” But it still rings true to this day. In fact these dwarves, and their beards, threaten to cause a dark envy to creep up from the depths of Mordor itself and consume any man who lingers too long in their presence. That being said, here are the top five Dwarf beards from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.   Gloin Gloin’s beard is as matchless as they come. I’ve had a lot of friends with great beards, but nothing that rivals the immaculate metal clad beard-ness that is Gloin’s […]

  • 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 […]

  • New eye candy from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with Dean O’Gorman as Fili and Aidan Turner as Kili. 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.
