    Who cares. Leave it alone. It’s not like they’re taking money out of their pockets.

    Christopher Judge should be able to get a better job than working on mockbusters. :/

    I kind of tire of Asylum’s nonsense, so it’s good to see them get knocked down a peg or two.

    Also the assertion that Asylum does that kind of research is absolutely hilarious.

    Considering they’re currently in the process of attempting to destroy one of my local pubs ‘The Hobbit’ in Southampton, this does not surprise me in the slightest.

    I think the bigger crime being committed here is that this film looks horrible.

    As much as I dislike Asylum using the Name “Hobbits” is not a bad thing at all.Make sure and do some Research and not Comment without doing that.
    My points:
    1.Hobbit is a Term first used in the 1800’s and then used by Tolkien.He did not invent the name “Hobbits” and there is no reason why he or for that fact any person or entity can just go and “Own” a Word.Here is some additional info on this “Point”.
    The word also turns up in a very long list of folkloric supernatural creatures in the writings of Michael Aislabie Denham (d.1859), printed in volume 2 of “The Denham Tracts” [ed. James Hardy, London: Folklore Society, 1895], a compilation of Denham’s scattered publications. Denham was an early folklorist who concentrated on Northumberland, Durham, Westmoreland, Cumberland, the Isle of Man, and Scotland.

    Since the book appeared in 1895, and Denham died in 1859, that would seem to place all of its text – and hence the creature known as a “hobbit” – in the public domain. I wonder what the Tolkien Estate will say to that?

    2.Second Point is this is just another MAFIAA Copyright Maximalist Garbage.The Owning of Words is something these guys would love to be able to do.MAFIAA wants to Control it all.Tolkien Estate and others are just that.

    Bottom Line:
    Tolkien himself later in life realized he must of read one of the earlier 1800’s Era of Books which mentioned “Hobbit” and later on when creating his Hobbit & LOTR Material, ETC he used “Hobbit” and thought it was his invention but it was probably in his mind already residing somewhere in his thought process.

    gorehound, I agree with you. But we are talking about Asylum. The guys behind ‘Transmorphers’ going to dvd at the same time Transformers were released. This movie is expected to be releases 3 days before ‘The hobbit’, we all know they are releasing this just for this movie, otherwise they could have released them in any other date. Think about how many (dumb) people will go watch this movie instead the Hobbit just for the misunderstanding.

    As long as Global Asylum doesn’t back down I can’t see Global Asylum losing this one.

    You have to wonder if New Line Cinema, Warner Bros., and MGM thing that Christopher Judge is a Hobbit.

    Look… IT’s clear to me why they chose Judge to play this role. He has successfully fought and survived a CGI dragon in his previous jobs. It was absolutely paramount that they have someone who could survive the initial couple of seconds with a CGI type dragon. It’s not a common skill on the resume.
