Terrible news! Jackson made an entertaining film but is in no way the only one who could make a Middle Earth movie. Why is it so hard to make a movie exactly like the book. The Hobbit is not strictly canon and is written for children. None of Tolkiens works should be made into live action movies. In 3D, come on. Are we not over this decades obsession with this sub standard way of filming movies!!

Hello all,

It was suggested to me by a user at theonering.net that I post my eBay auction here...so here I am! Hope someone finds my auction interesting :)

After nearly 2 decades of collecting Tolkien books, I've decided to let most of my collection go to a better home, and I wanted to let you all know about it:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Mega-Coll ... Books&hash=item27b5d290a8

I'm selling these to help pay off some pretty massive credit card debt accrued in my previous life as a married college student, which is the first step in my plans to move with my girlfriend to New York (from California!) in 2 years. So not only are you getting (or gifting) a great collection of Tolkien stuff with this lot, you're also helping make a lifelong dream of mine come true. I've already got a job I can take with me, so all I need to do now is save some money...which we're working on right now!

The best way to contact me with questions is through eBay...I look forward to hearing from some of you. Thanks in advance to anyone who's interested, and blessings to all!

Michael

Thanks for the responses - I think I'll have to mark this one as inconclusive.

My brother-in-law (& my sister) moved to Matamata to work on the Hobbiton set in April this year (for 6 months). They've already moved on (or are due to right now, in October) to Wellington (Miramir, where all the studios are). So my guess is that filming is (or was) very much intended to go ahead in NZ early next year...

To be fair, though, Tolkien himself described LotR as a trilogy.
