The thought of an old man crying.  Not that Ian's old. That SoB's immortal.

Oh boo hoo. You're a famous actor and you had to do a film that was all green screen.
User avatar #14 to #6 - RIPphyscovideos (02/15/2014) [-]
Just because you're famous doesn't mean you can't have feelings. He's been in the film industry working with actors for so long and then suddenly this happens

Put yourself in his ******* shoes

Whatever you do with your life, you will never come close to being even slightly as awesome, brilliant or successful as he is   
   
Carry on with your pathetic life

What makes this especially sad is that all of the scenes with hobbits in the Lord of the Rings was done with traditional methods - stunt doubles and, more impressively, perspective. And they pulled it off flawlessly in those films. Sir Ian is one of my heros and, as an aspiring actor myself, this gives far too many feels.

Actually,he was so mad about it,that he didn't learn any of his lines,and did all of the dialogue on the spot.

I doub't this. I could see him kinda miffed at the idea, but not actually breaking down.

Actually, Peter Jackson felt so bad for him that he arranged his whole tent to be decorated with lord of the rings props (if i remember correctly). At least he rearranged it to something that Ian McKellen loved and he got really touched and understood that he had a family on set.    
   
This whole thing is on the behind the scenes of the extended Unexpected Journey blu-ray.     
   
Gif semi-related, in that scene Viggo Mortensen broke two toes while kicking the helmet, but instead of cutting the scene he took the pain and used it to perform an incredibly believable performance.

I haven't read the books, but the thing I hated about The Hobbit was the CGI Orcs and fight scenes. Some is good but it was way too much. LoTR's stunt men in orc costumes were way better than all the CGI orcs in The Hobbit, more realistic too.
#192 to #186 - superduperpuper (02/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, read the book. They use close to no CGI there.

I just watched this random movie last night with Ian Mckellen where he was a nazi war criminal secretly living in normal society. He makes some high school kid become evil in the process. No idea what the movie was called but I enjoyed it.

Most relevant pic I have.

Ian Mckellen knows his **** . I hate the direction modern film making is going. Now it's cgi and ******* 3d like a goddamn amusement park ride.

bluescreen and greenscreen improved the effects of movies and destroyed any soul put into them

case in point...Total Recall
Original: Arnold with a buttload of effort put into makeup and scenery
Remake: colin farrel and a greenscreen to make garbage

they had to do it green-screen, because of how they CG the dwarves/hobbits (the actors aren't really little people, you know)
User avatar #76 - achimp (02/16/2014) [+] (3 replies)
Then he must have sobbed on the set of every X-Men movie, as well as every LoTR movie.

Yeah, this is a load of ******** .

this is utter and complete BS. He filmed parts of hobbit part 1 and even some scenes in lotr with just green screen. Source: my superior knowledge of lotr/hobbit.

>he filmed part of hobbit part 1

that's whats the post is all about

Thumbed down because this **** is not funny. it gave me feels i haven't had in years and breaks my heart, but it's not ******* funny.

AND THAT, ladies and *********** , is the proper way to use the spoiler fish

I've never seen Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, so I'm just wondering, why the **** would they film The Hobbit with a green screen instead of actors? It doesn't seem right at all.
#160 to #155 - ogloko (02/16/2014) [-]
most likely due to the fact that they are using normal sized actors to play hobbits and dwarves.
