I recall when I first saw Fellowship
in the theater. They played the "Concerning Hobbits" music over the theater speakers as people were finding their seats (this was before they started running a constant stream of ads during that time). It was weird, because I had never heard them play music from the movie before
the movie had even started, so I wondered "What's that neat music?" So yes, nostalgia overload
Don't care what you think Ocelot, not listening
this time bro.
I have nothing but
reverence for the Lord of the Rings films. Sure, I could nitpick them to death if I wanted to, but I just love them way too much to bother. They're some of my top favorite movies, and certainly the best fantasy movies I've ever seen. And I love
fantasy, especially straight-up Tolkien. I'm thrilled that Peter Jackson is back in charge. I hated King Kong too, but if it means The Hobbit is more like the main trilogy, that just means it will be easier for me to sit down for an all-day non-stop movie-watching marathon once all four (five?) movies are out on blu-ray. It might even take two
days to get through them all - those extended editions are long. I'd consider it a vacation to Middle Earth. Because where else would you rather go?
