That's right 1.40 is comming on my birthday, what a pleasant birthday present. Today my gf took me see Lord of the Rings and that was the best film I have seen my entire life.... and having read the books three times both the danish translation and the english colectors edition compiled as the original in 6+1 books I was sceptical to say the least. What a nice birthday... must be some higher power pitying me as the age of 30 draws awfully close (27)...
Anyway I look forward to playing the new and improved OFP... thanks BIS and may life grant you the power to give us more patches
Perhaps I't like with the rings?
Three Patches for the fan-boys under the sky,
Seven for the whiner-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for the Moron Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark 1337 on his dark throne
In the land of H4x0r where shadows lie.
One Patch to rule the all, one Patch to find them,
one Patch to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Malden where shadows lie.
''must be some higher power pitying me as the age of 30 draws awfully close (27)''
although that big 30 sign looms ever closer and is a mere 14 years away for me, it can't be that bad, thats when you'll reach your sexual peak, so don't expect to be doing the gardening and popping down the post office on weekends just yet, because if your like me when i turn thirty, you'll be shagging like a large thing that shags an awful lot (it helps to be a millionaire, which i intend to be by then anyway )
Re: CanisDEK, a fellow Tolkien fan, but not as old as me!

I'm going to see the rings soon but what i find hard to belive is they made it here in NZ and had the first preimer in Britian.
CanisDEK, I also saw the movie yesterday (19th Dec. release day) and also thought it was fantastic, and the best movie ever made! But am I just being biased because I'm a Tolkien geek???
HellToupee, I think they premiered it first here in the UK as a mark of respect to Tolkien himself!
Still, hold your head up high, you have a beautiful country to be proud of and (I assume) Hobbit holes on your doorstep!
Does anyone know if the Hobbiton village they made for the film in New Zealand is still standing for tourist purposes? (Like a type of Disney World!)

No I would almost say it's quite the oposite. Normally turning a good book into a film is very hard... at least if you don't want to disappoint those who read the book. Lord of the Rings might be a fantastic story which makes that part easier. When people read books they create their own images of the persons, locations etc. and Lord of the Rings is the most difficult film to make if it has to have the same magic as the books. I think it was 100% succes. It the film were only 99% succesful in telling the tale, portraying the characters etc. there would be some minor detail that would bug a fan like me and that feeling could overshadow an otherwise good film. I think Tolkien fans are the toughest audience for this trillogy, but if the next two films are as good as this one I think they have indeed created the masterpiece worthy of Tolkiens name.
Happy birthday Don't worry i turn 30 next year.
