I never imagined that Jackson could produce a film of the Hobbitt and especially The Lord of the Rings with fidelity. He seems to have done it. Towards the end I became quite tired of so much war, but it was excellently done. Horrible orcs! Marvelous Mirkwood forest; Fascinating to see Turner as one of the dwarfs; Legolas and Turiel amazing with their bow action! Incredible dragon Smaug!
