Eek! Sauron’s Coming! Run Away!!

Here’s an amusing anecdote from the production of Return of the King. Apparently, when they created the new computer program to individually animate thousands of combatants in the final battle, they had trouble making the little soldiers stupid enough to keep fighting.

    Too funny! I’d heard the same thing a while back about the CG Orcs during the Battle at Helms Deep. But I guess that would make sense – they did it all at roughly the same time right?

    Solly, you would be so proud of me. I finally got around to watching my first ever LOTR movie (Fellowship of the Rings) this weekend.

    I have never read the books, or seen the films. Now I am hooked. Can’t wait to watch The Two Towers tonight before the big event later this week at the theater.

    Then I will go to the library and start reading The Hobbit and then read through the trilogy. Yay! Aren’t I cool now.

    Oh and also some Led Zeppelin songs make a whole lot more sense now.
