KING Of All Schmoes
What's up MFC?! I hope you guys all had a wonderful Thanksgiving or if you don't celebrate it than just a great weekend. Hopefully the Jurassic World and Star Wars trailers blew your minds just enough so that they're recovered in time to be blown once again by Peter Jackson in a couple of weeks.
may already know my favorite series of all-time comes to a close on Tuesday December 15th as the Middle-Earth saga will finally end. After 13 years, 5 films and countless memories we will sadly be saying farewell to some of cinema's most beloved heroes for the final time. To add to the epic ending even more I figured there would be a lot of people on here having 6-film marathons during the release date and figured we could all do it together - or at the very least, attempt to.
So I'm declaring the week of December 14th, 2014 as MIDDLE-EARTH WEEK on MFC! It'll be a week to celebrate one of the greatest trilogies in the history of cinema and a follow-up series that places itself admirably amongst the great fantasy-adventure flicks of our time. While yes it may be Tolkien Week every week on my MFC page I'm inviting you all to partake in a marathon, follow along in some blogs planned - make some yourself if you'd like and generally get as much Hobbity-awesomeness as you possibly can on here. If this is to end in fire, then we will all burn together - just replace "fire" with gifs and burn with "post them"!
Since the movie comes out on a Tuesday and most of us will be watching that week I figured this would be an optimal viewing schedule.
Sunday December 14th - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Monday December 15th - The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Tuesday December 16th - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Wednesday December 17th - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Thursday December 18th - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Friday December 19th - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Saturday December 20th - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Sunday December 21st - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
I know not all of us will be able to watch along together but I figured some of us could and there's a 3 day gap to see The Battle of the Five Armies in there since it's release date varies by country.
Anyway, yeah, if it's just myself celebrating this week of Tolkien love than that's alright by me but I wanted to lend the invitation to you guys and get this community as actively festive for one of the most important movies of my entire life.
