      I think "Lovely Bones" was a fantastic film! If you've watched "Heavenly Creatures" you'd certainly see similarities in style.

      Also, finally good news about The Hobbit!!! YAY!!!!

      Lovely Bones was awesome... I'd like to read the book too, but the movie is just so tense. I dug it a lot.

      I can't believe this is finally happening... LotR was so amazing, I hope they repeat the magic!

      I never liked LotR that much, but Howard Shore is returning as composer, so you bet your ass I will be in a theater opening weekend with my eyes closed enjoying the aural splendor. Also, Ian McKellan and Christopher Lee are back and because of their age (especially Lee; I cannot believe he is 88), they won't have many opportunities for glorious screen roles in the future.

      Lovely Bones had some of the worst acting I've ever seen. I challenge anyone to find a fan of the book who didn't despise the movie.

      Didn't know Christopher Lee was confirmed... hope he makes it through filming!
      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      The acting in LotR is nothing to write home about, either, but I agree that The Lovely Bones was visually stunning and entirely flat otherwise.

      I don't think the acting was particularly terrible though yeah, it certainly wasn't on the same level as Heavenly Creatures.

      Also, a bit of a trivia on Christopher Lee subject, what's the name of a famous album cover he made an appearance on ?

      Thought you guys would want to see this-

      Peter Jackson posts Hobbit blog
      (UKPA) – 1 hour ago

      Peter Jackson has posted his first blog from the set of The Hobbit showing production starting on his 3D epic in New Zealand.

      The video on his official Facebook page gives fans a chance to see the set for the Lord of the Rings prequel, costumes and props being made, and cast rehearsing.

      Peter said: "I just wanted to take this opportunity to give you a little look at the lead up to filming. I look forward to keeping you up to date as we go through the next two or three years."

      He added: "It is strange walking around here because it was ten or 11 years ago and I'm used to looking at a set like this on film and now we're walking back into it again.

      "It's kind of like you've stepped inside a movie, it's a very weird experience."

      Members of cast and crew, including Andy Serkis who returns as Gollum and Martin Freeman, who stars as Bilbo Baggins, are shown making speeches to the team at the beginning of filming.

      Martin said: "This has been a long time coming, it's been even longer than we thought it was going to be. So I hope at the end of this journey we are all as close with each other as at the moment we have the potential to be."

      Andy said: "On behalf of the returning cast and crew who have gathered here to go on the journey. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to share the passion for telling such an amazing story."

      Peter said: "For a long time I thought that going back to the amazing experience of Lord of the Rings wouldn't be a good idea, but now I've come completely around, because films are about the people you work with."
      "We'll not risk another frontal assault... that rabbit's DYNAMITE!"

      Sorry to disappoint, but it is, although Peter Jackson is doing 3D right by actually filiming in 3D using dual camera setups, and using RED cameras, so I think that viewed in 2D or 3D, it will look amazing. I also just read that is is being filmed at 48 FPS over the traditional 24 FPS, to make viewing faster paced scenes easier to watch in 3D.

      2D for me. Then 3D on a second viewing.

      Just hope PJ has managed to get his heart back into this. It's gonna be a long 3 years.

      Recently finished going through the full trilogy with my kids (extended edition). I had forgotten how good those films are, and I can't wait to see this one.
