Greg and I continued our Middle Earth film tradition and viewed The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Which was excellent. Very pleased with how the film turned out and our cinematic experience watching it. Just before the troll encounter the power went out in all the theaters for about ten minutes. But the film resumed with little problem.
The first one, Fellowship of the Ring, was viewed by us in St. Louis. We drove all night after work on a Wednesday. Met mom and dad as they were going to work. We slept for a few hours and then got up and went to the film. Completely blown away. We repeated this the next year. The third movie we watched in different circumstances. I suspect we'll be able to repeat this for the next two films as our boys will still be too young to watch these in the theater.
