Welcome to a new
era Sunday series on Makeup Morsels! Let’s Talk LOTR is my way of dealing with the wait (for The Hobbit, of course). Anything Tolkien-related is fair game, and posts for the next two months (yes, I have already mapped out LTLOTR posts for the next two months, that’s how badly I needed to get this out of my system) cover everything from the books to the movies to the music. I also threw a few stick figure drawings in there for good measure.
So without any further ado, let’s get into the first one! I thought it would be nice to begin the series with The Hobbit trailer, which I’m sure most of you have already seen. But it doesn’t hurt to see it a second time (or, if you’re like me, it doesn’t hurt to see it for the second time today).
It’s epic, yes? A few discussion points…
I am ridiculously in love with this music. The tune matches the lyrics perfectly, and gives me chills. The good kind.
There have been a lot of complaints about the dwarves (in particular, Kili and Thorin Oakenshield). Ok, those two look like miniature elf-rangers to me, but if they were all Gimli-esque dwarves, then I probably wouldn’t be able to tell them apart until the movie was over.
Who’s excited to go see this?
See you next Sunday for another dose of Middle Earth!
