It’s Movie 1 Riddle Review Time on Riddles in the Dark!

Professor Corey Olsen, Dave Kale, and Trish Lambert review a year of riddles in preparation for the premier of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Stepping through each riddle, they review the “old days” when very little information had been released about Peter Jackson’s film and they reminisce about way back when the story was going to be covered in only two films. Some riddles have had to be tabled as a result of expanding to three films, and some already seem to have pretty clear right answers, but by and large the riddles have held up pretty well!

    As far as the tone of the ending of the film, Howard Shore’s score certainly sounds like “foreboding” is still the right answer. Assuming that the track “A Good Omen” is the last music in the film, before Neil Finn’s song and the credits roll, then it sounds like they will cut from the company being rescued by Eagles to something evil, probably Dol Guldur or the Orcs still in pursuit. Listen to that track, especially the last 30 seconds, and let me know what you think.

    Are you going to be able to have score cards ready before the Thursday midnight viewing of The Hobbit for those of us not fortunate enough to make to the big shindig this weekend? Not only can I not wait to see the movie, I am also pumped to see how well my predictions went!

    By the way, thanks for all the hard you guys have put into this podcast. I don’t think I have ever been this prepared or enriched with good study and conversation before a movie. It has been a fantastic experience and I am looking forward to the next year of debate, controversy and predictions.

    Come on guys, how about if Thors gets his head cut off, but they are fighting to reclaim moria we get full points for D and half points for A… you know it makes sense!
