My extended edition Blu-ray boxset of ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy finally arrived on my doorstep Tuesday.
Don’t expect to get much out of me in the way of socializing over the next week.
I’ve been obsessed with Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Hobbit’ worlds since the first movie, ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ hit theaters all the way back in 2001. For fourteen years I’ve followed my friends Bilbo, Gandalf and Frodo from the Shire to Mirkwood and beyond.
With the release of the latest boxset, our journey has finally come to an end. At least in so far as new jaunts are concerned. Now I must be content with watching and re-watching the epic sojourns on DVD.
Bittersweet, yes, but mostly sweet.
Thank you, Peter Jackson, for fourteen years of a fantastic fellowship of adventure.
