That's right, folks, it was time for our every-two-year venture to the movies.. Geoff's Dad and step-mom came in and babysat all the children, and we went to The Hobbit. And then I went back and read some reviews, and lo, they were mixed.
I must say that parts dragged but on the whole I liked it. I'm much less purist about The Hobbit in book form than I am LotR, and so I was able to just enjoy it. Also, Martin Freeman is wonderful as Bilbo and carries the movie.
Plus the plates song is great.
