  • I can talk about The Hobbit, the movie that everybody has supposedly been waiting for. The blockbuster of the year. But, after three hours of nonstop dwarves and data dumping, I can honestly say that I’ve had about enough of the epic fantasy for now.

  • Feast your eyes upon the Dwarves from the new Hobbit movie.  Depicted here is Nori, Ori, and Dori from the Hobbit played by Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, and Mark Hadlow respectively.

The first of two installments “There and Back […]
