Thanks, Paul! RE Lord of the Rings: may I boldly suggest: Read, don’t watch? 
Jackson failed to grasp a lot of what Tolkien wrote and bulloxed core concepts 
like just war theory (Entmoot result), human dignity and capacity for good 
(Farimir’s initial response), depth of friendship (betrayal by Sam of Frodo on 
the Stair of Ungolath), among others. I now refuse to watch the movies, and 
have never seen any of the Hobbit movies. What I get for being a stuffy 
theologian. Grin. The book — well worth an annual read. Grin.

With abandon,
