The music swelled, the New Line logo came on screen, and...what did you feel, right then, and when you walked out of the theater? Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and we all sat down again to revisit Middle-earth for the first time in years on a big screen, and as the music swelled again...what did you feel, right then, and when you walked out of the theater three hours later?

Well, being a "film-firster". (aka person with zero expectations) ...I really don't recall the thoughts I had during those first couple of minutes but maybe something like "what is this?" would apply. I think I was pretty well hooked at some point during the prologue though! I do remember thinking "that's it!?!" at the end of FotR, along with "WOW!". I also remember getting a copy of the books--promptly! So began my now-over-a-decade-long love affair with M-e/Tolkien.
Fast forward to 2012. To some degree, Sam's "Well, I'm back" fits here. Hearing the music and seeing "The Hobbit" appear on the big screen in that familiar style was happy-sigh worthy. I enjoyed The Hobbit and look forward to seeing the rest of the story on the big screen. Was I "wowed"? Not so much. I suspect this has much to do with my own expectations or knowledge of the lore these days rather than anything the film-makers did or did not do.
