While you were watching "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," did you wonder to yourself, "If I lived in Middle-earth, what kind of creature would I be?" You probably didn't because that's a terribly odd thing to think while watching a movie, but in case you did, the LOTR Project has put together a handy quiz to help you decide whether you belong to the world of hobbits, dwarves, or wizards.
The quiz is fairly straight forward, but get ready to think a little outside of the box. You'll have to answer questions about your feeling towards gold, whether you like guests, or how you approach a battle scenario. Needless to say, things are going to get pretty geeky.
And, yes, there are still 351 days until "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens in theaters, so stop asking.
Thanks to TheOneRing.net for the heads up!
The internet is a wonderful place, and it's only richer by people like Samuel L. Jackson. During his recent interview with The Huffington Post's Mike Ryan for "Django Unchained," Jackson set off a string of truth bombs better than any meme or fake eagle-grabbing-baby video.
The topics of conversation varied from Jackson's desire to be an extra on "Breaking Bad" to his feelings about the later oeuvre of his "Unbreakable" director M. Night Shyamalan.
We sampled some of Jackson's choicest quotes after the jump, but please do yourself a favor and read the entire thing over at HuffPo.
Andy Serkis' Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" and now "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" has often been praised as the gold standard that all CGI characters should be measured against, but while he might best the greatest, the schizophrenic creature certainly wasn't the first.
One of the very first fully-CGI characters was none other than the much maligned Jar Jar Binks. In an historic event (and thanks to MTV News' Josh Horowitz), Gollum and Jar Jar were able to have a short conversation during a recent press junket for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
Will we ever see such a monumental day for CGI characters again? Probably not. This is probably as good as it's ever going to get.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens on December 14.
If you are one of the many people afflicted with the "Twilight Saga" blues, then we have just the cure for you. The brilliant minds behind Bad Lip Reading videos have tackled the "Twilight Saga" yet again, and have created some of their best work yet.
Taking some of the most emotional moments from the "Twilight" series and turning them into some of its funniest is no easy feat, but the lip reading experts manage to do so with flying colors here. Just what were Edward and Bella talking about when he was leaving her in "New Moon" if it wasn't about her taking her rabbit to the vet? And remember that time when Bella crashed Jacob's dirt bike because she ran over a gummy bear? Yeah, those were some of our favorite scenes too. Check out the video after the jump.
We're lucky enough to have a wonderful new Bond theme song for "Skyfall," compliments of Adele, but as we look back on the series and its themes, we can't help but notice that some of the best songs have been from other movies and some TV shows.
As we kick off a week of some serious "Skyfall" coverage on all things Bond, we thought we'd take a look at some of the best fake James Bond theme songs.

We've reached a high point in cinematic history, everyone. There's a new movie coming out called "Sharknado," and it's about exactly what it sounds like.
The Asylum is shopping a movie around the American Film Market this week that is a high concept monster-meets-disaster movie. Yes, it is about a bunch of sharks who get caught in a storm and wreak havoc on the world. Probably not the best timing for this announcement considering a Miss Hurricane Sandy who recently devastated the east coast, but clearly this movie is meant to be taken with a grain of salt.
"Star Wars" has always had one of the most dedicated fanbases in all of geekdom. There are tomes of fan fics, hours of homemade movies, and galleries of art to prove that, but the news of "Episode VII" has once again brought them out in full Force.
We've been covering all of the news surrounding "Episode VII" on MTV News and over here on MTV Movies Blog, but let's use this wondrous occasion to look back at some of the wildest fan creations in recent years.

Halloween is typically all about the screams when it comes to watching movies, but shouldn't there be some room for a laugh or two? That's why the folks over at Film School Rejects re-edited one of the scariest movies of all time, "The Exorcist," into a friendly, funnier 1980s sitcom.
There's a laugh track, fluffy opening credits, and hilarious green vomit. It has all the hallmarks of classic family-friendly comedy…with some possession as an added bonus.

Is it just us, or has this presidential election become more about director Peter Berg than we were ever expecting?
It didn't become apparent right away. First there was Mitt Romney's reference to "Friday Night Lights," a television show created by Berg, based on a movie he directed.

Liam Neeson doesn't want to get "Taken" again, but that's not going to stop some writers with a very particular set of skills from doing their best to abduct him one more time.
In an interview with Hollywood.com, writer Robert Mark Kamen admitted that Fox is very keen on pursuing a third "Taken" film. Kamen feels the threequel would need to deviate from the formula of the first two movies, saying, "We've taken everyone we can take — it's going to go in another direction. Should be interesting."
That might not be interesting enough to lure Neeson back for a third round as retired black ops badass Bryan Mills. But in case he's feeling open-minded, we have some suggestions for how "Taken 3" could work out. Read them below!
