And thus we see, someone who finally understands what Tolkien was writing for! Thank you!
Wasn’t the third Hobbit beautiful, though? Sure, we can argue the details and point out the inconsistencies with the book or whatever, but I still think it’s a beautiful ending. I don’t even know what it is, exactly–there’s just something about those Middle Earth movies that ring of truth; that touch your soul and inspire your heart. They’re beautiful. And I think they’re chalk full of amazing life lessons.
Which is good, considering that they’re so freaking long.
But ANYWAYS…naturally, I had to rewatch An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug before I went to see The Battle of the Five Armies, and–being an avid LotR fan whose seen the extended LotR movies like 50+ times as well as all the extras–I was struck by something spanning the two trilogies. A bigger picture, if you will. The portrayal of humans in Middle Earth.
It’s beautiful. And so true.
