    Lol, @the-movieghost. I was 14 at the time of RotK. First midnight showing, man. Oh, and I forgot Avatar in that list. And it's cool if you're not, I was just curious. :P

    Very nice list there @narrator. I would've loved to have seen Return of the King that way, but I was 11 at the time of its release xD

    Actually, I hate to disappoint, I'm not the other dude that lives in Britain. I'm currently located in Michigan :P

    Nice, @the-movieghost. I've been to nine myself - Return of the King, Shrek 2 (free tickets), Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Dark Knight, Tron Legacy, Green Lantern (regret), The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and Looper. The Hobbit will fittingly be number ten. :D

    Btw, would you happen to be the other dude on this site that I know lives in Britain, aside from J.A. Ottley?

    I'd figured as much @narrator. A TV spot that I saw a while ago had a battle scene in a sunny-looking place, with Thorin appearing quite... blood-covered. And now that you mention that, a regaling tale would alleviate some traveling boredom.

    As of November 8th, I'm up to five: Fast Five, The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, Prometheus, and Skyfall.

  6. the Narrator

    It should be a flashback scene, @the-movieghost. In the book, the dwarves - namely Thorin and Balin - regale Bilbo with tales of their youth and how the Lonely Mountain was once this amazing place of productivity and happiness for all races involved. Then down came Smaug and washed the spiders, erm, I mean, dwaves out. Queue awesome flashback scene. It's the only explanation for Smaug even having an appearance in this first installment, as following the story from his or any of the lake-men's perspectives even briefly would be a terrible narrative choice on their part.

    Btw, how many midnight showings are you up to, friend?

    @ROFLitschristian I have to wonder if the scenes we briefly see him in are some sort of flashback...
