Sorry, but I can't figure out why this won't work.

This was a link provided in this morning's NY Times article regarding a student creating his own trailer for Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" (if it ever comes to be). It is a composition of scenes from "LOTR" and "Dragonslayer." Quite creative.

It's the exact same link from the article, and it worked just fine when I tried if from there. But it's not working here for some reason. If you type in the address on your own page address bar it works fine, but I guess I'm not doing something right in posting in here.

Looking at above link, what did I do wrong?

Just type it with the 'http' and the '://' and the address, it will parse itself into a link...

Pretty good little hack job... looked believable until the '2006' part came up. Fat chance of that happening. It'll be at least until 2008 till we see the movie... if we see it.

Thanks. I just corrected it. I was using the section below the POST SUBJECT area, and it wasn't cooperating. I didn't think of just typing the address and message all in the same area. Now I know.

I'm too familiar with LOTR and Dragonslayer to have been fooled, but I like the idea a lot.

Interesting, but obviously a cut and past job in the form of a movie preview. Most geeks would not be fooled by a minute of it. Not because they are most likely very familiar with the clips, but that Smaug isn't on a mound of gold with diamonds on his chest.

December 19, 2006 is a Tuesday - so I guess he's hoping for another back-to-back screening of all 4 movies

The guy mentions that on his "About" page. It's "Requiem Overture (Orchestra Version)" from Requiem For A Dream.

bahahaha... dragonslayer... I guess that guy kinda looked like a hobbit. Although that 'trailer' didn't have me fooled for even a second - I did think it was pretty well made.

I was thinking the same thing . . . he lucked out that Peter MacNicol has "hobbit hair" . . . or, at least, he did when he was in Dragonslayer.
