Only one word can describe this film: epic. Not my usual taste in movies, though I did enjoy it. We’ve had this movie on DVD ever since it came out, but never had three hours in a row to sit down and watch it (long gone are those days)–until tonight. East of Eve practice was cancelled due to the weather so I thought this would give us a good opportunity to start on the trilogy.
There was one part of the movie that cracked me up. One of the Hobbits was inquiring about eating. Here’s the quote: “What about second breakfast? What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn’t he?” It totally reminded me of Jake–the kid eats constantly. I’m not exaggerating–I have witnesses. I think he might be a Hobbit. He certainly follows their meal schedule and he’s just about the right height. He doesn’t have hairy feet, though. Maybe that won’t occur until he’s older.
The Flick Filosopher gave it a big thumbs up.
