my initial reaction to the title change (in legolas’ exact tone of voice)

the range of reactions from the tolkien fandom has been interesting…like many are saying, changing the title doesn’t change the movie. having said that though, am i disappointed? yeah, a bit. it takes some of the focus away, at least up front, from the crux of the story~bilbo’s growth and change over the course of his journey there and back again~and highlights the battle. but that battle is hugely significant as well~and i always saw the changes that thorin undergoes throughout the journey, culminating in that battle, as a tremendously important ‘parallel’ if you will, to bilbo’s transformation. and it’s truly beautiful at the end when those two finally come back to the same place and part as friends.
ultimately, whatever the title is, this movie will speak for itself. and the simple truth is, i have loved every single second of the LOTR trilogy, AUJ, and DoS. i trust PJ and i know TABA will be no different just please don’t screw up the ending with the durins. and yeah i’m still going to refer to it as TABA :P

so I tried to draw another pic of Thorin and young Thranduil.
I have no regret. sorry not sorry

"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" .

So basically they've decided to name the third Hobbit film - "The Hobbit:

The Battle of the Five Armies" instead of "There and back again " .

While I understand why they wanted to change the title , I don't know if I like it or not .... "Desolation of Smaug" sounds really cool , but "The Battle of the Five Armies" seems too long or too directly emphasizing on the battle ... hmmmm . Well , probably I am simply not used to it ( yet ) . What do you think about it ?

( anyway ... it's not so important .... just bring the trailer already !!! :

P )

so apparently this is a petition to get the title changed back to TABA

I came across this cryptic poster today near Lincoln Center. The QR code leads you to this website, which explains that it’s part of a campaign created by New York-based visual artist Chang-Jin Lee to remember the victims of Japanese sexual slavery during World War II and to raise broader awareness of sexual violence during wartime. The campaign will culminate this Wednesday afternoon at Columbia University with the screening of a mini-documentary produced by Lee that includes interviews with “comfort women” survivors and a former Japanese soldier. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Columbia history professor Charles Armstrong.
