And Now for Something Long

hobbit running

I couldn’t hold it any longer!

I saw The Hobbit the other night and quite enjoyed it, proving yet again the miracle of low expectations.  I went in having heard of long lulls wherein the entire audience pulls out their phones and starts texting; people not being able to hold it any longer and rushing off to the bathroom only to return to find they hadn’t missed anything, after which they come and go at leisure.  Others lamented the absence of women (which is largely true but Lady Galadriel is at least an elf to contend with).  From my perspective, the scenery was always stunning and I could always spend my time wondering where exactly it was filmed and whether I could go hiking there.

Happy holidays everyone!
