The Hobbit Blog #1: 10 Best Moments
9) Martin Freeman’s Fresh Threads
We see: Freeman following up a lovely speech - partly delivered in native Maori tongue - by Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), thanking assorted locals and project partners for their hospitality during the shoot.
We hear: “My name’s Martin Freeman, and I’m in the cast as well. [Such modesty, Bilbo!]
He stole everything I was about to say, but I hope by the end of this journey, we’re all as close as we have the potential to be.” Aww.
We learn: That, although he may be endearingly self-effacing, our Martin sure knows the correct sartorial approach to attending a Powhiri welcoming ceremony.
Take note, lest you look a fool at your next one.

50 Awesome Movie Monsters
34) The Balrog
The Movie: LOTR: The Fellowship Of The Ring (2001)
The Amazing: “What is this new devilry?” quakes Boromir, and well might he ask. In case all his kittenish scampering to safety left him too breathless and squealy to notice, we feel duty-bound to inform him that the Balrog is a…well, it’s a sort of giant lumbering sheep-dragon-antelope dealio that enjoys trying to cross very narrow bridges with its gonads all riotously ablaze.
Genius Detail: The ability to fashion its own crotch-fire into a whimsical array of A-grade weaponry including massive swords and flailing horsewhips? Yeah, we’d probably take that to be honest.
