Dang, how many posters are there gonna be?!

I really wasn't expecting Smaug to be that huge, I avoided every teaser and commercial I could. Didn't even read the books within a 6 month radius of the movie so I would go in unprepared. I'm going to start that with CBMs now.

Fun Fact Gusto actually audition for the part of Smaug but he left the auditions very rejected!

JoeMomma29 - 12/16/2013, 10:47 AM
Then Gusto and Pink Gusto thought they could have an edge and audition together!

I cannot stop laughing at this review and comment!!!!!!

This is so COOL!!!

I balance a ball on mine and try to keep it from rolling off the edge while driving by tilting the wheel back and forth and using the gas and brake. I must do this well as everyone around me honks with encouragement.

@ Monkeyballs

Just wait till you get to the second item, I still cannot stop laughing!
TheGreenGusblin - 12/16/2013, 11:52 AM
@Gusto Liar! We both know they're on my side.
JoeMomma29 - 12/16/2013, 11:53 AM
@ Batz

LMAO!

I purchased this mane-ly for anonymity, but instead it was a night-mare that saddled me with un-bridled panic.

At a recent Comic Con, I donned the mask wearing my best track suit, jockeying for a simple laugh: "What do gay horses eat?" I queried, eager to bray "Heeeeeyyyy!!" Comic gold, friends, I know.

But the neigh-sayers came unglued. "No! You're George Takei! I know that voice!"

Now, it doesn't take a gallop poll to know what happened next. I hoofed it out of there with herds of fans riding my ass, shouting till they, too, were...horse.

Again, I ask, what is this sites infatuation with the word 'titular'? You have two artilces on main about this film, and each one has the word 'titular' in it. Every time you want to refer to the title character in a film, it's 'titular'. It's like reading a Beavis and Butthead script... I always expect it to be followed by "heh heh heh he said 'tit'... heh heh heh". Use a thesaurus once in a while, please.
marantaz - 12/16/2013, 12:19 PM
Oh poop! Sorry Batz, didn't see you'd already pointed this out! At least I'm not the only one!
