First off my deviantart lives again so great talking to y'all again. But today i'd like to share some good news for you. In anticipation for the extended cut of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and all three extended cuts being released theatrically for a limited time, I decided it was time to work on a little pet project that's been in my mind for quite a while. Using the extended cuts (since those are the best versions which is an opinion shared by Peter Jackson and the cast), I'll cut together all three Hobbit films into two. 

Unlike the previous fan-edit, which I found lack-luster, not that well edited and I felt tried to cram to much into such a limited amount of time, this will homage and pay tribute to the original two-movie script and plans Jackson had far back in 2010-2011 before Warner Bros. started it's savage executive meddling and it was split into three. And because I want to differ myself from the other edit, here's what going or what's being tweaked the most:

1. Tauriel is still in the movie because I was very much angered by sexist and immature comments about the character and because i'm a fan of the character. However, there are some tweaks I made. In the original two-movie script, her romance with Kili was still there but was played more subtle and her relationship with Legolas was like that of siblings. So that's essentially what I'll do. The best way to describe to what I'm hoping to do is to qoute a review for Downton Abbey Season 2 regarding Thomas Barrow: "The subplots still there but it isn't so overt." So yeah no Warner Bros. induced love triangle, plenty of Tauriel for the fans and still some romance for the romantics.

2. The Dol Guldur subplot is put back in only it's edited down ever so slightly and will mostly take place in part 2. It's done in a way so that the blatant foreshadowing for Sauron is gone so that when he's revealed it's more surprising. And since Thrain and Radagast were in the book, they get to stay. Also, what better way to pay tribute to Christopher Lee then to put him back in. Will obviously contain footage from the third film's extended cut.

3. Azog, being probably the weakest and most useless Tolkien character since Tom Bombadil, is cut down severely. Same goes for Bolg, whose pretty much interchangeable with the former. He won't appear on screen until after Bilbo rejoining the company in the Misty Mountains. As I told one of my friends when I finally decided to go through with this "the less of Azog the better."

4. Alfrid was unfortunately in so much of the third film that it's going to be hard to remove him but i'll do my best and minimize his part. Plus with his confirmed death in the third film's extended cut, I can't resist the opportunity to include the scene where he'll finally perish and we all laugh manically.

5. The entire battle of five armies will get a chainsaw to the face in the editing room. It'll be greatly minimized (obviously it'll still be there) with most of the absurd moments being removed. So yes no Legolas Mario Bros. jump and Azog floating under the ice. 

6. The barrel scene will be shortened and serve as the climax for the An Unexpected Journey part, as it was intended before re-shoots. The barrel bounce involving Bombur, Legolas on dwarves heads and the Go-Pro shots are gone. 

7. If it's a CGI extravaganza, it's gone. 

8. The goblin town sequence will be cut down to something manageable and the stone giants scene will be cut out entirely, since it doesn't really do anything for the plot. 

9. The opening prologue is gone save for a little bit of Ian Holm's introduction before it zooms in on the map. 

10. I will probably have to trim Bag-End ever so slightly but it's for the best. 

11. The project will be titled The Hobbit: The Duology Edition with the two different parts being called An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again.

So yeah there you go. I hope everything works out and, God willing, I'm successful. Thanks to everyone who supported my decision to make this. You're all awesome. 

God bless you all and have a great evening.

Today I went to Florida Supercon and I had a fantastic time. But one (or more specifically two) events made this the best day of my life since I got saved in 2009. 

I got to meet Dameon Clarke, Caitlin Glass and Vic Mignogna (aka the cast of Fullmetal Alchemist) at a Q & A and they were among some of the kindest, nerdiest and awesome people I know. They answered all our questions and were just amazing. We also saw Vic Mignogna again in a solo Q & A where he talked about how he got into the industry of anime, his love for Star Trek and how he and his friends have fulfilled the ultimate nerd dream and created their own spin-off show Star Trek Continues which can be found online. He also gave beautiful career advice for everyone there to pursue their dreams and hone their craft in filmmaking, animation and voice acting so that one day they're dreams can come true and not only that, he encouraged his fans to be good people and stand up against haters and jerks in a qoute that resonated with me:

The only way evil wins is if good people do nothing.

And he thanked God for his success and for his fans. As a Christian, that last part was incredibly heartwarming to me. 

But that second instance that made my day so fantastic was when I got up to the microphone to ask my question. I obviously thanked Vic, Caitlin and Clarke for their success and bringing Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood to life (even if Clarke wasn't involved with Brotherhood) and that it was beyond moving to see Christians like Vic and Caitlin being praised and loved by fans and the general public for their truly amazing work. I then asked this simple question:

"I've loved The Hobbit book and the Peter Jackson films, so I guess my question is would you like to see FMAB and The Hobbit cross-over, who'd they interact with and in either Gollum's cave or Smaug's lair, would Ed or Winry do with the Ring of Power?" 

The response practically blew my mind. Caitlin Glass said she'd love to see Winry with Legolas, Vic Mignogna said Ed would probably shave his feet and leg do that he wouldn't look like or be confused for a hobbit and Dameon Clarke said Scar would be fascinated with Gollum. And then I pretended to do the Gollum voice of Gollum and Smeagol fighting over Winry and everyone including them laughed out loud. They finally then said they'd love to see the two worlds crossover and I said I would fic the idea and they told me they'd be looking forward to it. Then I got a hug and a kiss from Glass, who said she liked The Beatles shirt I was wearing.

So thank you Clarke, Glass and Mignogna for making this one of the greatest days of my life. I feel truly honored to have met you in person. Thank you so much. 

Oh yeah and because I know everyone will nag me to end about it...so apprently same sex marriage is legal. As long as I can practice my religious beliefs freely and openly and as long as they finally stop shoving their "free love" nonsense down our throats and stop whoring themselves out to the media, I'll be fine. I just want to be sure I can pracitce my beliefs without being mocked and scorned. 

Thank you for reading. As always, Nat has left the building.
