Has anyone else heard about this movie?

The trailers both looked well made and I almost thought I was looking at Viggo Mortensen under all that dirt, but of course I wasn't.

New Line Cinema and the Tolkiens will probably try to keep it from happening, hopefully they can't.

It does look that. I'm impressed, but a little worried. Parts of it sound kinda melodramatic and cheesy. Like Gandalf's parroting of Galadriel from LOTR:
"If you can't find it, no one can." vs "If you cannot find a way, no one will."

Though the elf in there really -looks- like I'd imagine an elf. Features and all. This should prove interesting.

Fans who put quality over profit? Don't think this will go through.

I'm Impressed, it looks really good and obviously the makers are passionate about LoTRs, it definitely looks worth a look.
I guess they were able to get around the intellectual property thing by being completely profit free, they probably couldn't even cover their costs. That shows real love and commitment.

Wow... I am impressed. Even for a low budget, fan film, it looks pretty good. Can't wait to see it! :D

I couldn't get there today 2330 GMT; they either were overloaded, were hi-jacked, or were taken down, the links wouldn't work for me.
