    Age of the Hobbits: Judge Stops Release of Knockoff Movie | E! Online

    This movie was a "D" budget movie.
    I think the article says they lost the court battle, but since I rented it it must not have been blocked from release.

    It is mildly entertaining, it does say in the description it is a story about the little people archiologists found at an excavation site.

    Weak story line, poor dialog, nil special effects-to include a stab between the arm and body of the victim for the kill.
    Dialog included people walking up and introducing themselves to people that know them.
    "Its me _______..."

    If any star in this ever becomes famous they will list this movie as their "porn past" movie.

    I didn't find anything or value or interest in this movie. I rent the bad ones in hopes of getting a useable idea from the bad movie.

    People will stop at nothing to cash in on the Tolkien money train.

    When I saw the story I linked to I thought they had lost the law suit, but they must have stopped them from releasing to theaters, but must not have stopped from video stores.
    There is not even a trailer to show how bad this was.

    Watching the trailer I was like "this is... uhhh... inter- Oxygen Magnesium! Was that Christopher Judge?" After a quick search on IMDb, where it has the title "Lord of the Elves" I found that is was "indeed" him. (hehe anybody? Stargate Sg1 joke? :biggrin:) My biggest question is how did they get him to be in it? From what I saw I was not impressed.

    Before I clicked the link I guess that this was by Asylum who have made a business model of ripping off properties and was not disappointed. Their list of credits, for those who don't click the link, includes winners like Snakes on a Train, The Da Vinci Treasure, The Day the Earth Stopped, and my personal favorite, giving us the sequel we all wanted, Titanic II.
