Elijah Wood: It felt like ‘home’ to shoot the Hobbit

Elijah Wood has a new interview with Parade Magazine, where he talks about returning to the Hobbit two parter (the first part will be released this December), as well as his own music label.

Talking about music and deejaying, he says, "Last year I started this thing where I had record parties.  Friends would come over, everyone would bring a stack of vinyl, and you would get a turn at the turntable to play songs. It's as much as a social experience as it is to get a chance to hear records you've never heard before." 

He also talks about how his appreciation for this kind of music didn’t start until his 20s, saying, “I was traveling a lot and carrying a lot of music with me so it was more CDs then.  More than anything vinyl had impact on me a little later in life. We live in a world where most of the music we listen to is through playlists or iPods or Pandora. All of these mediums where it's relatively scattershot and we're not listening to albums in the same way we're used to. The great thing about vinyl is it's an active listening process. It's dropping a physical needle on a physical disc and you actually have to be present enough to flip it to the other side."

He ends with a quote about what it felt like returning to play Frodo Baggins for the Hobbit, saying, “"It felt like home.  I think after so much time had passed, it was also quite surreal. But I think the most surreal thing about it is that it felt oddly normal. I think I expected it to feel like eight years had passed and in a way it felt like no time had passed. In that way, it really surprised me. It was like a family reunion. It was like stepping back in time. It was a gift. It was really wonderful to revisit old friends and be in that space again. And not having the responsibility of three movies. It was nice to pop in and pop out and have a lovely visit."

The Hobbit movies clearly rely heavily on CGI but is this really making the films less impressive?
