J. R. R. Tolkien Day: The Movies

As many of you know, I'm passionate about some of these. Let's start with the documentaries. I haven't seen any of these, but they're out there.

First, Master of the Rings.

Apparently, there was also a 1968 BBC documentary on Tolkien.

Let's move on. In 2001, The Fellowship of the Ring came out. It was and is very popular. It made over $870 million dollars worldwide.

Next out, in 2002, was Two Towers.

Finally, the final movie came out: The Return of the King.

And now, in two parts coming in 2012 and 2013, The Hobbit is being made.

Prior to the Lord of the Rings movies mentioned above, there were some ones made in comic style. I haven't seen those, though.

So. Now you tell me: which Lord of the Rings movie so far has been your favorite? Are you anticipating The Hobbit?

I love the LOTR movies! They are all great, so I can't decide which is my favorite from the three. And I am so, so excited for The Hobbit!
