Well, well! I went to the movies today! I went to see The Hobbit 2! Can you believe it, it's only a thin book but Peter Jackson (the director) is stretching it into 3 parts and each part is about 3 hours plus! Considering that The Lord of the Rings is 3 thick books but was only made into one 3 hour plus movie per book! But would you believe me that the movies are very interesting! I can't wait for the final part!
To the uninitiated, The Hobbit is the prequel to The Lord of the Rings. I highly recommend all of them! Both books and the movies!
I just love the special effects and the talking dragon! (Smaug). And the scene where they encounter Smaug is spectacular and I was very satisfied that they took pains to spin out the scene to my satisfaction. Go watch the movies but I highly recommend you see part 1 first. And also see The Lord of the Rings if you haven't already, and take it from me, you'll really appreciate the movies more if you read the books first, starting with The Hobbit! These were the books that made Tolkein famous!
I didn't even manage to exercise today bcoz I was in the cinema for more than 3 hours and I followed my Mom to get the weekly groceries. I bought some turkey ham and romaine lettuce for sandwiches. I love romaine lettuce bcoz they keep so well in the fridge! But the turkey ham was very expensive! Abt RM20 for 8 slices!
I even bought popcorn at the cinema! Don't you agree that cinema popcorn is so crunchy and yummy! I seldom go th the movies, so I consider the popcorn an occassional treat! But don't you agree that the portion sizes for popcorn and just about everything keeps getting bigger!
