As some of you may have guessed, I am a Christian. I say that without apology. There are a lot of Christians who hate 'The Hobbit' but I have to tell you, I don't see where 'The Hobbit' or 'The Lord of the Rings' conflicts with Christianity. I saw 'The Fellowship of the Ring' when I was 11 and fell in love Middle-Earth and bought the trilogy. The end of 'The Return of the King' always used to put me in tears because I thought that there would be no more Middle-Earth movies...boy was I wrong. When 'An Unexpected Journey' came out, I became an all out fan and I appreciate that Peter Jackson has kept the films 'clean.' I appreciate that there has been no sexual content in any of the Middle-Earth films. I love 'Desolation' and will be buying it 2 weeks from today. I saw it in theatres and I think that it deserves more credit than it is getting. Smaug is AWESOME and Legolas hasn't lost any of his abilities. Basically what I am trying to say is that 'The Hobbit' is the trilogy of the decade and, THANK YOU, PETER JACKSON! MIDDLE-EARTH IS A BETTER PLACE THAN I EVER IMAGINED!
