The Hobbit....and Theater Seats that Move!

We went on a date today. To see The Hobbit--which is a movie we've been waiting anxiously for ever since we first heard it was being made. Angel was hoping to go to one of the very first showings at midnight on the day it came out, but his work schedule didn't agree, so we had to postpone watching it till Sunday. We even went to a D-box theater to see it. I highly recommend D-box for a special occasion like watching The Hobbit for the first time, but only if you like feeling as if you're riding a roller coaster for 3 hours straight.

I thought it was great, but of course, I've been an LOTR fan since the first time I saw the movies, which was probably 2005 or 2006. Watching The Hobbit reminded me of the olden days, watching LOTR marathons with my family. Why, I don't know, but at some point in our relationship with the movie series, my siblings and I decided to pair each one of us up with a character from the movies. I think the actual pairing varied somewhat, depending on the day, but usually, we decided that I would marry Aragorn (who wouldn't like him best?), Lizzy would marry Legolas, Anna would marry Pippin, and Rebekah would marry Gandalf.

But there was one more match to be made.

My cute, tender-hearted little sister MaryGrace. Not a mean bone in her body....which is somewhat different from just about everyone else in my entire family. Obviously, because we assigned her to marry Gollum. And every time we told her that, she would cry. And yeah, we told her that more than once.

Poor, poor, MaryGrace. Now that I think about it, no wonder little kids complain about being tortured by their older siblings. Don't worry, she's not scarred for life. At least, I don't think so.

I can't wait to see The Hobbit!! My friend and I have been planning for over a year to go see it together! We're still trying to decide if we should see it in 3d or not. said...

oh my gosh, that's hilarious. i think i might cry, too if someone told me i was to marry gollum, haha.
we went and saw it last night and loved it! i really don't think it has to be three movies..they definitely could have put more of the story in but hey, i guess that's just how these franchises work!

So small town Montana girl here (where there is only one theater that ALWAYS has something do wrong!) what exactly IS a D-theater??

HAhaha, I totally did the same thing growing up! my sister and I would pick out who was who in what movies and who got to marry who in others. :) um, i think you need to make it up to marygrace and let her marry bilbo. (the younger, not the older).
