John and I saw the Fellowship of the Ring yesterday with tom (and Becky and Dan too). I was overwhelmed – just imagine what its like having your imagination come to life before your very eyes and in such a grand, majestic manner. People may enjoy quibbling over details here and there, but to me, the movie had the exact right FEEL to it throughout, and I can’t wait to immerse myself in it again – all 2 hours and 50 minutes. The acting was fantastic, the scenes were breathtaking, and the screenplay changes from the book were EXTREMELY well done and seamless as far as I’m concerned. That’s all I’ll say right now as I’m still digesting it and will surely have to see it a few more times to open my brain large enough to ‘get’ it all, so to speak. In the meantime, Tom’s got some fun thoughts about magic and myth in relation to the movie here. (Oh, and I will NOT compare it to Harry Potter – they are both excellently cool movies for their very own reasons.)
