Missing LOTR

Don't get me wrong I'm not going to dress up like a hobbit, nor will you catch me with a staff and wizards cloak, but this holiday season I was kind of bummed that I didn't have the excitement of a new "Lord of the Rings" movie to see.

I remember the first trailer I saw some 4-5 years ago. Having never heard of the books I yawned and though that'll be a "renter" at best. A year or so later I began to hear about it and so I saw the first movie. The trilogy now holds a special place in my heart, and I think is by far the greatest trilogy ever made (and I grew up on Star Wars and Indiana Jones).

So when I saw this article I was curious (click on the link in the title). It was the last paragraph that gave me Hope!

Wait For the Lion’s Share
For those still in need of hope, The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, is scheduled to be released Christmas 2005. C.S. Lewis’ fantasy series should appeal to the same audience that ate up Lord of the Rings. Movies based on the six other novels in The Chronicles of Narnia are set to hit the big screen in the six consecutive years. Hold onto your hobbits, Aslan’s on the way.

Ahhh I can sleep again with anxious anticipation (I just hope they are half as good as the LOTR)!

Oh my gosh Buck!! :) Don't lose sleep over it for cryin' out loud!! In fact, I gained about 4 hours of total sleep time during the LOTR trilogy!! lol, yep.. that's embarassing in a theatre, but leave it to me eh? I hope that - other than this sad Christmas with no hobbits - your life is going grand!! :) See ya bud!
