I love film and I payed close attention to that in this movie. What they do a lot of is either have a bunch of characters who are the same height together, like the Hobbits, or when they have different sized characters they have stand ins. Only until you have conversation do you see their faces and that's when the camera uses close ups and whatnot. It's done seemlessly so I can't complain. And yes, "That still only counts as one" was one of the best lines I've heard in a theater in a while.

(Holy shit do I wanna see the Punisher movie April 16, 2004)

(And yea, LOTR3 just about makes up for Matrix Revolutions) ^_^

Were those actors of the hobbits and Gimli just short ? or were the other actors tall ? or was there virtual shit done ?

All the actors were about the same height, the hobbit actors were slightly shorter. In fact, the actor that played Gimli was the tallest of all the actors in the fellowship, at 6'1''. There were tons of visual effects, with virtual shit, the use of midgets, and the use of a 7' tall guy. It's in the Fellowship of the Ring dvd.

Also if there was a scene let's say with Gandalf and Frodo, sometimes Gandalf would be standing closer to the camera than Frodo so it would seem that Gandalf is alot taller than Frodo.
