The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012 film)
Recently saw The Hobbit in 3D and walked away from it sadly conflicted. For one, I love Middle Earth and everything Tolkien. In fact, I love fantasy literature although I rarely dabble in it. Peter Jackson, …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Yes, it's true that while the Rankin/Bass animated film based on the original version of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is rather light family-friendly fare, it is also true that The Hobbit as a …

To steal a phrase from another classic trilogy that was ruined by horrid prequels and the corporate greed of the director (which seems altogether appropriate), "I have a bad feeling about this."   …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Still speechless, I've seen THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING four times now. The film is cinemagic. Its scope is epic. Its delivery is perfect. The acting is unforgettable, and the …

I don't like to get emotional in the movies, but when Frodo can't settle down and be happy as a hobbit after his adventures, I did cry.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The evil empire builds in strength. I particularly like the way the music built up tension in this part.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Makes me want to be a ranger, or perhaps a hobbit, although their virtues really come out in the later segments.

Wow. Just wow. I just finished seeing Return of the King and I can safely say that it is not only the best Lord of the Rings film, it is also the best fantasy film ever made and one of the best movies …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The +4 rating is only for the director's cut release. The version shown in theaters was inconsistent and, for someone who hadn't read the novels, incomprehensible at the end. If I had to rate just the …

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 …

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 Hobbit- First Edition
Loved it when I read it myself. Was I too young when they read it to me at school, or did I just want to read at my own pace?

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
They read the Hobbit to me at school; I think I didn't like being read to so I refused to read Lord of the Rings till I was at college and a friend recommended it. Good friend. I was hooked.

Middle-earth
"Middle Earth" is a well thought out landscape brought to life in Tolkien's books. Be sure to buy the "Atlas of Middle Earth" (by Karen Fonstad) if you really enjoy getting into the details. Brian Sibley's …

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 Lord of the Rings (novel)
Okay. Don't get mad that this is popular. Take a read. Develops a love of words and worldbuilding, and a truly deep sense of mythology, one infused with moral and elemental significance.

This has got to be my favorite book of all time. It was introduced to me as a kid. Ignore all the hype. Prepare to hate it, and you might actually enjoy it!

Excellent, life-changing cinematography and storytelling. Be ware of the dead-folks though, they're not in the novel (in any big way), and seem to not quite fit the way they've been added.
