Wow, time flies. I remember seeing it in the theater and thinking it was pure magic. It was easily one of the greatest films I’ve ever seen in a theater because I was totally transported back to being a little kid and reading the books.
I also remember the rumors for years that the movie was getting made than it wasn’t getting made — with plenty saying it would be impossible to make. Not only did Peter Jackson do it, he did it better than anyone could have ever imagined. Those three films are three of the best ever made in any genre.
Can’t wait for The Hobbit.
