Listen to J.R.R. Tolkien Read Poems from The Fellowship of the Ring, in Elvish and English (1952)

Listen to J.R.R. Tolkien Read Poems from The Fellowship of the Ring, in Elvish and English (1952) | Machinimania | Scoop.it
In my book Cate Blanchett can do no wrong, but her performance in the Lord of the Rings movies was particularly spellbinding, especially when she spoke the Elvish language of J.R.R.

 

 In the short clip above, Tolkien himself recites the Elvish poem Namarie, or Galadriel’s lament, from The Fellowship of the Ringnovel (it doesn’t appear in the film). Namarie translates as “Farewell,” and the poem in English reads thus:

Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind, long.......

 

It's so fascinating -

Watch the Tarantino-esque 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' Trailer

Watch the Tarantino-esque 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' Trailer | Machinimania | Scoop.it
'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' is set to release in January 2013, but the movie's trailer shows an odd, futuristic take on the kid's tale.

 

"The film, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters takes an even darker and more odd plunge into what happens when Hansel and Gretel stop laying breadcrumbs, grow up and start fighting back.

It’s 15 years after the blind witch lured the brother and sister into her candy-coated house of horrors, and now, the duo, played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, are bounty hunters that track and kill witches seeking revenge for the trauma they endured as kids."

Love Actually (3/10) Movie CLIP - The Dancing Prime Minister (2003) HD

The Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) takes advantage of a quiet moment to dance through 10 Downing Street.

 

I cant help it. 

In these days with all the Politics and the USA president candidates all over the screen in very serius campaigns it sometimes get a bit to serius. 

 

Use your imagination and transfer this clip to one of the American candidates and change the Downing Street 10 to the White House -

 

How about that - woudnt you just love to see President Obama or the Republican candidate in this situation ?

 

Here is really some challenge for movie makers of any kind. 

 

It could be so fun and who knows, maybe even get some votes ..... 

 

Anyway, this is so funny.

This summer's blockbuster movie season has been a true labyrinth of twists and turns.

Despite dismally low theater attendance, at least two films – The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises – passed the billion-dollar mark in ticket sales. Close behind those geeky blockbusters, a pair of unexpected heroines emerged from far-away districts to slay the box office. Also, for once, a superhero super team lived up to its potential greatness. And in the end some films needed real-life knights to......

I have used a lot of software , like FLASH , TVP Animate ,Photoshop , After effects and Primere .
the FLASH and TVP Animate is for character animation, Photoshop is for background and After effects is forsynthesis , Primere is for final cut .
All the music is from soundtracks.
