The tale with a sting will soon be on the screens, well in time for Christmas future anyway...

Do they do size twelves in Middle Earth?

My dentist used to go on about his 'dwarf wall' outside his surgery, while he was drilling my tooth. I thought he was pulling my leg...nope, he wasn't. He was a joker and a half!

...the waterfall, on the LHS, midway thru' the trailer looks like a 'Thunderbirds' effort. (effect).

Having listened to the AUDIOBOOK many times, the screen characterization of the similarly-named dwarves, will enhance the book's appeal.I found it difficult to differentiate the dwarves in the book.

It looks promising.

Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Thorin Oakenshield, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, and Ori.

What's difficult to differentiate...?

Like Shakespeare, Middle Earth is totally uncharted territory to me, as I've never been able to get to grips with either.

However,they both bring massive pleasure to vast numbers, so I doubt if my support will be missed!

Cynical me...there's going to be a lot of Charles Dickens' celebrations all over the land soon...200 years from his birth, ( and quite rightly so...his novels are Dickensian!).

The Hobbit (film launch) is best left a while.

The HOBBIT 'pin-up' boys are all here!

The photo was taken after they became famous!
