The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Well, if you know me very well, or you've read much of this blog, you have at least a small idea of how much I adore J.R.R. Tolkien's books. They are continually an inspiration to me and my writing. More so, perhaps, than the work of any other author.

Another man was very inspired by the work of Tolkien and that man was Peter Jackson, the director of a trilogy of films based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings stories. Jackson's recent film endeavor has been to create a trilogy of motion pictures based on Tolkien's literary work The Hobbit. Last December the first installment hit theaters with a flourish and fans flocked to their nearest cinema in order to catch a showing. (Or two...)

The next installment is to be released sometime later this year and only just recently a trailer was publicized highlighting a bit of what will be showcased in the upcoming film.

After watching the trailer, once again I find myself very excited for another Peter Jackson film release and the next installment of his latest motion-picture trilogy. 


  1. I am beyond excited to see the film! As you know I am glued to and as soon as the trailer came out they had it posted and I was notified via txt that a new post was on their blog. I watched the trailer and then I watched it again...and again...and well you know. I can't wait for it to come out!

  2. Very excited...
    I was wondering, have you done any writing lately?
    believe it or not, I've pulled out my WW 2 story idea and I've been pounding away on that when I have a moment. Still not sure if it's any good...we'll see.

  3. It's a shame those CGI blurs called "Orcs" don't scare me at all. Remember the enemy at Amon Hen? Yeah. I miss that.
