I found out about a week ago that I'm going to be on a panel at Salt Lake Comic Con FanX next week that discusses J.R.R Tolkien's masterpieces, The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
The exact name of the panel is: The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Films as Adaptations. Personally, I can't wait, but I realized when I found out I would be on the panel that I needed to brush up on my Tolkien. On Wednesday I downloaded The Hobbit in audiobook form and finished it the next day. It's been SO long since I read that book--great book!
Yesterday I rented and watched the first Hobbit film and today I rented the second one. Between now and next Friday at 1pm I need to watch all three of The Lord of the Rings films. If I had another week I'd listen to all three books, too--not this time.
Initial thoughts about the films? Peter Jackson sure made some great, long films! And instead of watching them for entertainment only, this time it's homework.
