 Rings!

DoS is great! I’ve seen it three times since the movie came out in The Netherlands on December 11, and it gets better every time. What is it that makes this movie so great? For me it’s the mixture of Tolkien and Jackson. I love the book and I love what Jackson has added, interpreted, and even changed. He has chosen a wonderful cast and works with an amazing crew. Laketown is beautiful, Dol Guldur is exactly how it should be and the scene when the dwarves enter Erebor is breathtaking. So is there anything that is less than perfect? Well maybe the scenes in Beorn’s house and in Mirkwood. They were simply too short.
And now we have to wait for a whole year for TABA. But hey, it’s the Christmas holidays, I will simply go and watch DoS for a fourth (and fifth) time.
