Then after a few years of LotR obsession(when I went to public school my number 2 goal was to find someone who enjoyed Tolkien's work as much as myself), I see a teaser preview and think "psh, that's a ripoff of Lord of the Rings"...then it IS Lord of the Rings. I about pissed myself. And Jackson didn't let down.
This year, when the Hobbit comes out, I will be taking 2 days off work. I'll watch it a few times the first day, and recover the next.
