Fuck yeah, the Hobbit has been released
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:22:14 pm »
No, I'm not talking about Peter Jackon's overpadded snooze-fest.

I'm talking about Age of the Hobbit:

Quote
In an age long ago, the last village of clever, peace-loving Hobbits is attacked and enslaved by the Java Men, komodo-worshiping, dragon-riding cannibals. Now the young Hobbit Goben, along with his father and sister, must seek help from the "giants" (human hunters) to find the Javas' lair and rescue the last surviving Hobbits, Goben's mother among them. In their quest to destroy the Javas, the heroic partnership of humans and Hobbits will transform both species forever.

I did neglect to mention:

Quote
Written by The Asylum

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Asylum

Quote
In 2009 the Asylum released their first 3D comedy, Sex Pot, and in 2010 they produced SyFy's top rated creature film so far that year, Mega Piranha starring Barry Williams, Paul Logan, and the 80's pop star, Tiffany.

You think Tolkein's kid is gonna fuck with MEGA PIRANHA?

I wouldn't.  There are easier ways to commit suicide.

They have claimed so, but The Asylum counter-claimed hobbits were not invented by Tolkein, so his estate can go suck eggs.

I like the cut their gib, considering TSR bowed before them and thus we got stuck with 'halflings' the generic flavor.

I can only assume that Roger's got the right of it, as the infallible wiki clearly states that he owns the little grubbers flat out.
