J.R.R. Tolkien was a master of the fantasy genre. You’ve heard of the titles he’s written. There’s the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The Children of Hurin, and The Hobbit.
We’ve seen the movie treatment done to his books multiple times. Both Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit have had different movies made at different times.
This past weekend saw the release of the final movie in the Hobbit trilogy.
Wrapping up the novel in classic Hollywood fashion was breathtaking. The production company did great work on translating the book to the big screen.
The visuals were stunning, enough so that our next major vacation may be to New Zealand where Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit were filmed. The pacing was fantastic (the 2 and a half hour movie was over before I realized it!). And the storytelling was captivating.
