On the Elasticity of Sequels

When considering the Roger Ebert quote* about The Hobbit sequels:


you may ask, “How does Peter Jackson do that? How can he stretch these things out? What pray tell could the cast be doing for so long?!”

I was wondering myself, and then @nancyjohnson1 reminded me. Dumb me. I should have realized how they could chase the hat for two movies! It’s the answer to everything!

*Fake like this post.

edit: I promise I’ll get serious. My next post will be serious with a vengeance!

Love Ya, Richard

Has Richard Armitage arrived now that he’s been parodied on Saturday Night Live? Could be, but whatever the case, this skit is brilliant. Yeah, I said brilliant. I’m using it the way the Brits use it — referring to something cool or wonderful. You Brits, feel free to school me on its connotations.

But watch this first:

It doesn’t matter if you’ve already seen it. Watch it again. It gets funnier unless you’re a Peter Jackson fan who takes himself/herself too seriously. There are a few of those around, but thankfully, they’re in the minority.

And yes, I really do love Richard Armitage even though I am a conflicted fangirl. In case you don’t know that, I have a few posts lying around to prove it. Got one coming up soon that’s a doozy. :D
