New Line is holding out on the Tolkein Estate.  Looks like the same crap they were pulling on Peter Jackson.

And you thought Trek isn't cool.

This is sad. Its not like New Line is stiffing some other group Hollywood flunkies. I'm not saying Peter Jackson is a flunky. I'm just saying that Peter Jackson is one of them and they play these games with each other, thus the writer's strike. No, they are essentially screwing a charity. Great job New Line, not only are you biting the hand that fed you, you are biting the head that will feed you again and is working to spread some good in the world to boot. Do they not understand that The Hobbit will make them money? They understood the contract and who held the rights to what. Stupid... stupid... stupid.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
