Just dropping in to pass on this "Open Letter to Wil Wheaton". If you don't read her blog you might consider it. She's hilarious. http://thebloggess.com/2011/03/dear-wil-wheaton/

"The LOTR appendices alone contain enough material for a movie. And there's a wealth of info to be found in the History of Middle Earth volumes." Unless we're talking about something completely different, the appendices deal with before and after LoTR. There is nothing from the end of the Hobbit leading up to the start of The Fellowship of the Ring.

"Jackson and Walsh envisioned the first film covering the events of "The Hobbit" and the second bridging the 80-year gap between that novel and the first "Lord of the Rings" book." That to me, just completely sucks. This is a gap that does NOT need to be bridged.

As dumb as this sounds, I'd be willing to wait forever. Don't get me wrong, I totally enjoyed the LoTR trilogy but I could have lived a long happy life if it was NEVER made into a movie. And the same goes for The Hobbit. It takes my awesome imagination and exchanges it for someone else's. Now forever, Elrond will be Agent Smith in my mind's eye. Can't get away from that.

First time poster here..but I had to come out of lurker mode to make a reply. As the mother of 2 teenagers (well..they were teenagers once), I understand completely. I once gave my daughter a copy of The Princess Bride and had to nag her into watching it. She had no interest in it whatsoever, certain that she would not like something I loved so much. Cause of course we all know kids are nothing like their parents. ../endsarcasm. It became one of her favorite movies and books (she had to have that after seeing the movie). The only other suggestion is to have a friend recommend it. Someone he doesn't perceive as being as 'geeky' as you are. That may do the trick.

Excellent review. And thank you for posting it here. I have been looking for a working link to your keynote address ever since I found and started reading your blog (which was only a few weeks ago I'm ashamed to say).
