A pretty good read on the Lord of the Rings trilogy films can be had here: http://www.boundless.org/features/a0000860.html Be warned that non-Christians may feel "out of the loop" as this review has a definite Christian bias. But then again, J.R.R. Tolkien had the same bias! I'm not saying I agree with everything this author claims but it is interesting nevertheless! BTW, I've read "The Hobbit" twice and the trilogy four times and enjoyed the films immensely!
