One Ring To Control Them All

Finally saw The Fellowship of the Ring last night.
I wish I could compare it to the book, but the only Tolkien I’ve read was The Hobbit back in 7th grade for a book report.
The movie was actually quite good. It was kind of long though—nearly 3 hours! Glad I was home and not a movie theater so I could smoke while watching it and pause it to grab a snack and go to the bathroom.
It was a very realistic portrayal of what Middle Earth might have been like if it had existed. Visually, the film is stunning, and the special effects were amazing.
The Two Towers, the sequel, is due out in January. I’m gonna see this one in the theater no matter how long it is or how numb my butt gets for sitting so long.
