Today is opening day for Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The journey begins again for those of us who love the world J.R.R Tolkien’s created many, many years ago. I’ll be watching it this weekend so I have no spoilers for you guys yet. It’ll come in two weeks after I digested the film and the awesome visual presence on the big screen.
It reminds me when the first film of Lord of the Rings came out. I didn’t realize until after the film I treated myself to a great birthday present for that year and the next two. There were so many people I converted to the film version of the book. I myself can’t read the book, as much as I tried to push through the details of the world Tolkien spend so much time with.
I experienced each Lord of the Rings films on the big screen and the Hobbit movies won’t be any different. I may not be watching the movie with the same people but I know they will be watching it as well. No popcorn or a drink if I don’t want to rush to the restroom in the middle of the movie. Movie popcorn is the best but I don’t want to miss any moment of it.
