Two Months and Counting

  Yep, thats right folks, we are down to two months and counting Its hard to believe that the date is actually starting to get close. As a public service I would like to present a short list of the things to do in the next two months while you are preparing for opening day:

 1, If you are a real slow reader you can reread the Hobbit but if u read at a normal pace you may want to wait till after Thanksgiving.

 2. Since there will be three movies instead of two and since Sir Peter has stated that some of the movie will be from the appendices at the end of return of the king then you might want to start reading the aforementioned appendices to see if you can uncover some possible plot points for the upcoming movies.

 3. You can try and get some of the new Hobbit coins that have been issued by the country of New Zealand. I am not kidding here there are actually real Hobit coins issued by the NZ govt. . Not sure of their value but it would make a unique gift for your rabid Tolkien fans.

 4. Contact your local theaters and see what version/versions of the movie they will be offering. It could be 2-D, 3-D, 24 FPS, 48 FPS , IMAX, or a combination of all these, especially in the larger cities.

 5. Keep your eyes glued to TheOneRing.net. as they are probably the most realiable source of information regarding events and announcements associated with the release of " The Hobbit "

 6. Go to YouTube and check for occasional releases of any videos associated with the filming and/or release of the Hobbit.

 7. There are plenty of other sites with Tolkien and " The Hobit " info just do a quick search on Google and you will be amazed at what you will find. The Tolkien community is enormous and truly Global.

 8. You also might want to contact your local theater of choice and preorder your tickets online, you dont want to have and face greedy scalpers on opening day.

 9. Make plans accordingly for December 14th and establish good excuses for missing work  or school that day.

 10. If yoy plan to make a costume for opening day, why not create a costume you can wear for both Halloween and opening day, kill two birds with one stone and consider joining up with friends for the opener, it will be a nice little extra treat for the Holiday season, maybe get the kids involved and if u do decide to make the costumes please send the pics to this site where I will display them one and all..
