Peter Jackson did a phenomenal job of adapting J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” for the big screen. Here, I share my thoughts about the extended editions of the two film trilogies.
It seems that most of the movies produced these days are remakes or sequels or adaptations. But is that really a bad thing? Can they still be called “original”?
Nostalgia can be a great thing, helping us remember the things we grew up with, the things that comforted us and helped make us the people we are. Nobody likes it when someone messes with our favorite franchises. But we need to be willing to let new versions of them grow so new generations can form their own sources of nostalgia.
