A brief look at the detailed majesty of Smaug – King Under the Mountain from WETA’s collectibles range.
It happened … again.
It’s been ages since I’ve seen any films from both Middle-earth trilogies and I’m starting to experience some side-effects from it.
Today I happened to come across the ‘Ironfoot’ track from
The Battle of the Five Armies soundtrack. It brought back some strong feelings of nostalgia for The Hobbit. Continue reading “Nostalgia for The Hobbit” →
Hope you enjoy this quick video of Bard the Bowman from WETA’s collectibles range.
It can often be frustrating trying to comprehend the impact of watching

In keeping with tradition, I decided to write another brief blog post in honour of Peter Jackson’s birthday.

Given the recent outcry at the $800 price tag for the
Middle-earth Limited Collector’s Edition, and inspired by TheOneRing.net’s recent Facebook post, I thought it would be fun to see what $800 may buy you in Middle-earth products.

Pareidolia: a psychological perception of seeing or hearing images and sounds that are non-existent.
Think of photographs of the man in the moon or the face on Mars. Shadows and light can play interesting tricks on the mind and create something that is not actually there. Our brains are hardwired to look for patterns and make out things which we cannot fully explain.
