Just a reminder: for those who have the luxury of leisure and can loll in front of their computers awhile, don't forget to watch both Born of Hope and The Hunt for Gollum. Both productions, while borrowing the northern air and gestalt of Peter Jackson's films, are done as acts of love and on extremely low budgets. They are apocryphal to J. R. R. Tolkien (some can argue Jackson's films are equally apocryphal), but "fill in the gaps," so to speak, of events that the producers, directors, and casts deem important enough to devote their time and energies. Enjoy.
