Hall of Fire this weekend: Bunnies, boars and bad romance. What next from the brains trust?

June 15, 2012 at 12:30 am by Demosthenes  - 

There’s some odd (spoilers!), peculiar (spoilers!) and just plain bizarre (spoilers!) stories coming out of the Hobbit production of late.

That’s why this weekend in Hall of Fire, we’re devoting a session to pondering what’s going through the minds of the brains trust.

Is this sort of thing your nightmare hobbit script scenario? If not, when do you go, “this is too silly for words”?

Or are you of the view that JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit is, itself, so often whimsical or fantastical that additions like the above can only enhance the movie’s light-hearted appeal?

So join us this Saturday, June 16 at 6.00pm EDT (New York time), when we’ll discuss all this and much more as we look at the latest Hobbit movie rumours!
