Lord of the Rings

LoRI have a confession to make. I don't really dig this whole Lord of the Rings thing. I saw the first movie of the trilogy and found it rather long and boring. Hell, there wasn't even an ending. The experience pissed me off so much that I refused to see the second installment. The final movie is now in theatres and geeks everywhere are celebrating. I just don't care.

Sometimes I think I'm the only one who isn't into this Lord of the Rings craze. My wife is a big fan of the movies and has even read the books more than once. I know my brother Steve is anticipating this release. Many people I work with have Lord of the Rings screen savers in full effect. One fan was even noticably absent yesterday and my suspicion is he came down with a case of "Trilogy Tuesday". Now that I really don't get. Hundreds of people paid $50 to sit in a movie theatre for 12 and a half hours to watch two movies they've seen dozens of times and own on DVD and one new movie that is now playing everywhere, all day long. That's exactly how I want to spend my day. Can I line up for five hours beforehand too? Oh joy.
