++ I'm going to be seeing The Hobbit for the fourth time tomorrow. Just catching it once more before it leaves theaters.
I'm still in the process of writing my review for it, but I just want to say that I really, really love this movie. Not only does this bring up all the nostalgia of when LOTR came out, but it has made me appreciate the world Tolkien set up and I'm understanding a lot more now than I did many years ago. Never mind my love for particular characters that I never thought I would ever have certain emotions for (i.e. all the dwarves.) It just makes me happy that it's been made into three movies to extend my love for these characters and the story. Besides, come on, who wouldn't want an extensive time revisiting Middle Earth for another year and some?
