comment Why not make full use of the eagles in The Hobbit?
I would disagree, but then I've only sold a couple of short stories and am not Tolkien, so I'll defer to your sensible comments. I'm just being unnecessarily pedantic this morning.

comment Why not make full use of the eagles in The Hobbit?
I totally appreciate that, DForck. However, I would argue that if one wanted to write a rollicking adventure, one shouldn't include an easy option which then leads to grumpy old farts like me arguing their merits.

That final link is very interesting - it seems Tolkien had reservations himself about including the eagles. I'll wait a couple of days to see if anything else is unearthed before signing off on your answer - thanks, Oliver.

Enjoy that blu-ray, Morpheus - Dredd was one of the highlights of 2012 for me ;)

comment What is the significance of the iconic imagery in the ending of Dredd?
I don't have a definitive answer for you, but I would hazard a guess that the wall behind Ma-Ma is a trophy wall, considering the Judges' helmet and rival gang jacket. Wasn't one of the original gangs that was cleared out by Ma-Ma wearing clown makeup? As for the wire tiger, I think it demonstrates the inner strength of Anderson - 'letting the animal out', if you will.

comment How can I find out if a movie/series is still restricted by copyright?
Yep - all of Hugo's links will help you figure this out. The public domain issue is a cloudy one, however, and it is worth noting that George Lucas had this in mind when he sold to Disney - due to Disney's previous lobbying in congress to extend the copyright of their properties ad infinitum, this means Stars Wars will not be entering the public domain any time after Lucas' death. At least not for the foreseeable future.
