A brief post today to say that if you haven’t watched all three Lord of the Rings movies in close sequence, you should. David and I watched one on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it! A heck of a lot different than watching one each December as they came out. At church on Sunday, we found out that oddly enough, Joe and Amy did the same thing–except they watched all three (extended-edition) movies in a row on Saturday. That’s commitment.

Haven’t watched any of LOTR? Oh. my. gosh. Start now! Even if you’ve never read the books (I haven’t), the movies are fantastic. They’ll stir some sort of emotion inside of you because they deal with a quintessential battle of good vs. evil. Frodo Baggins, a hobbit, inherits the “one ring” of power that has the ability to destroy the human race. The ring itself must be destroyed in order to end the evil that created it by being cast into the fires of Mount Doom. Frodo and a host of eight others set out to the land of Mordor to destroy the ring encountering all sorts of evil–and some good–along the way. Spectacular tale of how far good will go to defeat evil.

There isn’t one thing about the movies that I don’t like–except maybe that there isn’t a fourth installment.
