    1. It's not a bad movie at all. However, I can fully understand those who wish to wait until all three are available on DVD.

  5. Thanks for the links, Jeff. And thanks for the Hobbit graphic. I am embarrassed to say that I have yet to read The Hobbit. This kinda motivates me to remedy that. :-)

    1. Unlike the Hobbit movie trilogy, the book can be read in its entirety. It's a great book loved by millions the world over.
