Incredible Hobbit LEGO set could be in shops soon – Mirror.co.uk

Original article

LEGO fan Ben Pitchford has created this incredible Hobbit set, based on Rivendell as portrayed in the film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering.[1][2]

The incredible model contains over 5,000 pieces – and you might be able to buy it in shops soon.

The LEGO Ideas page[3] allows fans to submit their own models to be made in to real sets. It’s a bit like Kickstarter, in that the most popular ideas actually get made.

Check out this incredible Hobbit model…

Lego Movie edges The Hobbit finale as 2014′s UK top box office earner – The Drum

Original article

The ‘Lego Movie’ was the highest earning movie at the UK box office in 2014 although overall takings dropped by almost three per cent.

The animated family movie took £34.4m from the UK and Irish box offices, trumping the recently released ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ which earned slightly less with £33.5m – although the movie remains in cinemas in 2015.

Figures are down from 2013 where Despicable Me 2 received £47.4m, seconded by Les Miserables which took £40.7m.

Overall box office income hit over £1.1bn for the fifth consecutive year although 2014 saw a 2.9 per cent decrease decline in revenue from 2013, marking the greatest decline since measuring commenced in 1991, according to Rentrak.

Cinema figures are projected to recover in 2015 with much-anticipated entries from the James Bond, Star Wars and Avengers franchises set to dominate.

The advertising industry will hope UK cinema bounces back in 2015, especially after Digital Cinema Media last November found cinema ads offer twice as much brand retention as TV[1].

Bill Maher Blasts American Sniper, Calls Chris Kyle A Psychopath Patriot – Daily Beast

Original article

Another day, another American Sniper[1] controversy.

Yes, Clint Eastwood’s biopic of the late Chris Kyle[2], the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with 160 confirmed kills over four tours of Iraq, has captured the fascination of the American public, earning a whopping $ 135 million-plus in less than two weeks of wide release, as well as 6 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Bradley Cooper’s[3] committed portrayal of Kyle.

It’s also proved divisive, with Hollywood stars like Seth Rogen and Michael Moore[4] making colorful comments about the film (both have since apologized, claiming their statements were taken out of context), and critics being split on whether the film is jingoistic, anti-war, or both.

Enter provocateur Bill Maher.

On Friday’s episode of his HBO series Real Time with Bill Maher, the outspoken satirist pondered whether Kyle was a “hero or not,” and revealed he’s decidedly anti-American Sniper.

Hurt Locker made $ 17 million because it was a little ambiguous, and thoughtful,” Maher said. “And this one was just, ‘American hero! He’s a psychopath patriot, and we love him.’”

Maher then proceeded to fire off a string of questionable quotes from Chris Kyle that he wrote in his autobiography of the same name—upon which the film is based:

  • “I hate the damn savages”—talking about the Iraqis—“and I’ve been fighting and I always will.”
  • “I love killing bad guys.”
  • “Even with the pain, I loved what I was doing.”
  • “Maybe war isn’t really fun, but I certainly was enjoying it.”

The stand-up comedian compared Kyle’s alleged lack of empathy to 5-star general and former president Dwight D. Eisenhower who, after helping lead the Allied forces to victory during World War II, became very anti-war.

“Eisenhower once said, ‘I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can.’ I just don’t see this guy in the same league as Eisenhower, I’m sorry,” said Maher. “And if you’re a Christian—I know this is a Christian country—‘I hate the damn savages’ doesn’t seem like a very Christian thing to say.”
