Nasty, Tricksy Hobbitses
So, can we pretty much assume you've all seen The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers by now? Of course, many of you probably found it an affront to Tolkien's vision, and their treatment of Faramir abominable, while the rest of you loved it, and recognized it as conforming well to the constraints of its artform without sacrificing the story. I'm sure there's a pretty good debate raging between the two opinions, and that's all well and fine, but can't we all agree that the work done with Gollum was nothing if not amazing. Well, Lord of the Rings.net has a fascinating peek into how actor Andy Serkis was transformed into Gollum on screen. You can find that feature here.
And if you were unimpressed by Gollum, then you're dead inside. Dead, I tell you. You should see a physician immediately.
