J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit

Are you a Lord of the Rings fan? Are you a fantasy & adventure film/book lover?
Because I sure am!!
For the last few days I've been re-watching The Hobbit films in preparation for the 3rd film which I haven't seen yet. I know, I know...why haven't I seen it yet when it was released 5 months ago?

When the 3rd film came out, I was in Belgium and none of my friends were Middle Earth fans so I decided to just wait until the DVD came out, which it did a few weeks ago.
So for the last few days I've been re-watching the first 2 films with my family in preparation for the last one.

But alike the LOTR films, this series is also based on J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy novel 'The Hobbit'.
I've read the book and I must confess that it is one of the best fantasy novels I've read.
The adventures, the setting, the characters and the imagination of Tolkien overall just precedes other great novels alike. I digress my statement of George R.R. Martin being the king of fantasy novels as I stand corrected.
Tolkien is the king of fantasy and adventure novels, I mean who else creates a whole new universe with their very own invented language and letters to go along with too but him.

If you haven't read or seen the films then I highly recommend you do, even if you're not a fan of adventures and things alike then watch it for the amazing effects and views of New Zealand and read it to understand truly the brilliance of Tolkien.
