  • I also remember the LOTR animated movie. It was made in the late 1970's by Ralph Bashki (that's right, the same Ralph Bashki who created "Fritz the Cat" and "Wizards". I was very disappointed in the movie because by then, I read JRRT (Hobbit and LOTR) and I was let down by what I thought was a half-baked effort. In fact, I can't remember a thing about the movie other than I was...

  • While visually exciting I found the dueling down the river to be incredibly pointless. I too would have like to have seen more of mirkwood and something to help us understand this journey wasn't an afternoon's stroll. I was disappointed the party was not lured off the path by elvish trickery after exhausting food from a long march. I was half expecting Bilbo to turn the other...

  • "The Fellows Hip, Rise of the Gamers" reminds me a bit of "Fanboys" which was "blessed" by George Lucas.

  • I could never hurl a book no matter how I feel about it's contents. I don't feel they are magic or "quasi-holy". For me, books represent the thoughts of their authors, that bit of themselves which should be cherished. Of course, the ethical dilemma is how to deal with books that promote evil or the commodificiation of people? Do we burn them and ban them as the NAZIS did or do we...

  • Your question reminded me of my own children's readings. I read LWW and the other Narnia stories as well as the Hobbit to all my children when they were little. My oldest son (18) is a Dungeon Master and LARP (Live Action Role Player). My youngest son (12) loves to read all matter of books. He recently discovered Duglas Adams and my 20 year old daughter is counting days down to the...
