The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012 film)
In 2001, The Lord of the Rings kicked off what some say is the nerd takeover of Hollywood.  At that time the idea that you could turn J.R.R. Tolkein's books into films and have them be successful …

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012 film)
Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings trilogy” was ambitious, truly impressive in a technical sense and had a whopping over 9 hour combined runtime in movie theaters. Jackson found …

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012 film)
Would somebody buy Peter Jackson Final Cut Pro? I am worried he doesn't have the readily accessible editing software that is the industry standard. That is the only rational explanation on how The …

Peter Jackson
Peter Jackson is a unique filmmaker who is primarily known for his later films, but it is his earlier films that I find to be some of his better flicks.      #3: 1992 brought about …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
This is another perfect film in what's most likely the greatest fantasy franchise ever (Harry Potter doesn't count). There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, the only thing that even remotely …

The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays
   Most of this book is spent discussing literature-- Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, fairy tales, etc. These are not hard-core philology lectures but rather discussions about the …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
I just recently saw this movie, and have not yet seen the second or third, but I absolutely love this. This is a pretty much perfect film. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's everything …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
One of the best stories and movies of all time. Just make sure you get the extended edition DVD. The "extra" material should never have been left out of these. Rarely does a movie live up to a book, especially …

The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays
Finding out at the age of ten from the back covers of "The Lord of the Rings" that there were medievalists and that Tolkien was one, I vowed to study what he did. While unlike "Tollers" …

The Silmarillion
I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend, i thought it looked and sounded good since i absolutely love the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I'm really sad to say how mistaken i was. This book …

   Forget Stephanie Meyers, younglings.  THIS is the novel that will stretch your imagination.  You want monsters?  We got that.  You want adventure?  Got that too.  …

The Hobbit- First Edition
I recently reread this amazing children's classic and I was amazed at how fun and exciting it still was. The Hobbit is much more child-friendly and light hearted than the Lord of the Ring trilogy …

The Hobbit- First Edition
Almost everyone has heard and read the Lord of the Rings series by Tolkien and is all too familiar with the adventures of Frodo and Sam as they try to destroy the ring. This book is more like a prologue …

The Hobbit- First Edition
It stuns me to think that people can find this enchanting book boring. It really makes me wonder just how many of them have seen the recently filmed "Lord of the Rings" directed by Peter Jackson. …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
The first in the epic film trilogy based on Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, this Fellowship of the Ring is a masterful adaptation of one of the greatest fantasy tales of all time. Lengthy by movie …

   The only word I can think of to fully summarize the Lord of the Rings is "Classic."      I remember growing up my dad read The Hobbit out loud to my brothers …

This classic novel by J.R.R. Tolkien is a wonderful story about a respectable hobbit named Bilbo Baggins and his adventures with a group of dwarves as they take a journey to try and get back treasure …

There are many great fantasy writers. You have to like older guys like Sir Walter Scott and Michael Moorcock (which caracterizes how diverse the books really are). then there are the modern guys like …

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
My first Tolkien experience came in the form of a sixth-grade production of The Hobbit as a play. I loved the idea of a magical journey in another land and time. The Lord of the Rings was even more epic …

The Hobbit- First Edition
Here is an adventure book that I can read again and again and enjoy every moment of it just as when I read it for the first time. Even more so perhaps because I see new things in it each time. It isn't …

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or …

    This story starts in The Shire. The Shire is where hobbits, small people that are also called halflings live. Bilbo Baggins owned a hobbit-hole, kind of like a hotel. He lived alone, …

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
I must confess that I didn't read the Lord of the Rings trilogy until after the first movie was released. Now it's one of several books that I re-read often, and I wish I'd read it long ago. …
