I can count on both hands how many times I’ve been to the theater since….um…high school. This is worth a trip. I was stifling geeky-English-major squeals as I watched this (locked in my bathroom, on an iPad, because I didn’t want to scare the kids in case of goblin imagery).
**Update, 20 hours later. Having watched this already about five times, I’ve decided something. I’m going to want half of Bilbo’s furniture. At least. I’ll be there at that sale with the Sackville-Bagginses.
