"hope Frodo learns some new facial expressions before the next film hits"

All the filming for all the movies was finished months ago... it's an unprecedented way to present a trilogy of movies... PJ took the cast to NZ, and filmed EVERYTHING... so there will be no 'learning curve' for the actors as the films are released...

Not that I think E. Wood needs to learn much... I was very happy with his portrayal, except for the little lilting voice, and the obviously fake accent...

"favourite "book to film" movie"

Ummm... off the top of my head, Blade Runner... Can I count 2001-2010, seeing as how 2001 the book, was created at the same time as the movie???

Need more thought on that one...

On the subject of Gladriels gifting scene... that was SOOO obviously filmed, and later cut... One does not take the time to build such an elaborate set and then use it only as background for the fellowship 'boating' away... I fully expect to see it on the eventual DVD...
