the hobbit’s budget is $250 million
how the hell do you even spend $250 million
How much money did you think it would take to turn Benedict Cumberbatch into a dragon?
It was surprisingly easy to turn him into a dragon. The budget was blown in bribes to convince him to change back to human at the end of the day
“Benedict, come back here.”
“Benedict, you can’t fly around the set forever.”
“YES I CAN.”
Andrew Marlowe and the Castle writers, getting foreshadowing right since 2009: “Think of foreshadowing as setup. The best foreshadowing is subtle and is woven into the story; often in multiple ways. In this fashion, foreshadowing helps build tension and gives resonance and power to the story.”
In this time of term papers I wanted to draw my patron deity, Bullshitticus, god of students and general last minute fudgery, sitting upon his Golden Futon, attended by the muses Caffeina and Thesaurae, whose powers of artificial energy and pretentious vocabulary can be invoked in case of the all-nighter.
I like to think he’s Dionysus’s second cousin or something.
This is genius…
all wise words from the sagest of the sage.
