I was thinking about going to see this tonight and even had the wife’s buy-in for the midnight showing, but the more I thought about it, there was just something not so fun about the prospect of getting home from a movie at 4am and then having to be awake again at 8am for work!
So goes adulthood, I suppose… 😛
Nonetheless, we are going to see it this weekend, so I’m still pretty excited about that. I actually didn’t get a chance to watch the Lord of the Rings over Thanksgiving weekend like I normally do, so I’m kind of jonesin’ for some Middle Earthean adventures at this point! I find it interesting how LOTR has sort of become a holiday memory for me – even though it was only the first two movies, I remember going to see them for the first time with my cousins after we had eaten Christmas dinner … because I guess that’s what kids do when they’re kind of grown up and don’t bring their Nintendo up to Grandma & Grandpa’s house for the holidays anymore!
…says the guy who just re-hooked up his original SNES in his office… 😉
Anyways, hope it ends up being just as awesome as I’ve been anticipating … the first one was pretty good, but I’m still looking for a little something more to really lift The Hobbit up to the level of its theatrical predecessor. Will the great and powerful Smaug be the one to give LOTR a run for its trilogy?!
