The last time I watched the trilogy, I was in college. Adding the hobbit trilogy (edited) in the morning was new, and it was a good addition- I never finished the hobbit trilogy before (I found its pacing too slow, and the expanded stuff too boring). Let me tell you, it’s good to watch that every decade or so. Epics like that have a way of helping you frame your own life in a way that’s larger than life. I may not adventure against earth-ending baddies, but I have friends and that’s pretty epic when you think about it.
