Episode Sixty: That's What We're Tolkien About [Dec. 23rd, 2012|05:10 pm]
Made Of Fail



Episode 60 is live!


SPOILER WARNING: We spoil The Hobbit out to there and back again.

Thanks to Cleolinda Jones (@cleolinda), our Senior Elvish Correspondent, for coming on to replace Dayna. And welcome Danielle (@eruvadhril), Tolkien fangirl extraordinaire and venomous Australian. :P Oh, and some guy named Kevin was here.

The Hobbit is still in theaters. Go see it! Buy the book while you're at it!

Editor Devin has requested we link to The Literal Hobbit Trailer, and who are we not to share?

OTHER THINGS OF NOTE: Kevin is now a part of the MorBacon Theater Company, and has a few projects up his sleeve for 2013, so cross your fingers that all goes well! With any luck, they will be doing a production of Carnacki the Ghost Finder, which you can download for free to the Kindle here.

Danielle would like to draw your attention to Mitch Benn's audio performance of A Christmas Carol here, as well as Martin Pearson's website for a Lord Of the Rings musical.

Also, there is a Klingon Christmas Carol going on in Chicago. No, really. Try to catch it before the end of December.

Finally, keep a close eye on Cleolinda's Movies In Fifteen Minutes for Breaking Dawn Part 2 In Fifteen Minutes!

Happy Holidays to all our listeners!

Good episode, but I don't like this new host. Go back to your old hosts.

Great Episode, guys. I am a bit ashamed to admit, as a newbie Who fan, that until the end credits, I completely forgot that Sylvester McCoy had a role in the movie. It didn't help that looking back, he was still nigh unrecognizable to me as Radagast.
I actually saw this in 3D (not my first choice...it was the only thing that was playing near the time I showed up at the theater), and though it hurt the hell out of my eyes, it was totally worth it. 3D can work, in the right hands and for the right reasons.

Nice to hear your dulcet tones once again, Kevin.

And I second the fluid intake. I had water and only had a few sips and by the end I had to pee so bad. The second viewing was better though...

I have the entire LOTR and The Hobbit book set that I got in college but never got around to reading. So after seeing this film I thought I'd dive right into The Hobbit since I heard it was a bit of an easier read than the others. Maybe if I make it through that, I can tackle the trilogy proper.
