Tolkien dissed by Nobel Committee?

@Slublog is just a bit offended that the Nobel prize committee back in the Sixties apparently did not particularly enjoy JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings, and definitely rejected it for a prize.  In particular:

The reporter discovered that jury member Anders Österling wrote that the novel ‘has not in any way measured up to storytelling of the highest quality’.

…I’m sorry: Anders who?

@allahpundit is not actually dead to me.

But I’ll be damned if I can think of many leisure activities off of the top of my head that’s preferable to sitting down and watching the The Lord of the Rings trilogy for the first time*.  Oh, there are a couple – but less than you’d think.

Anyway, here.  Have ten and a half minutes of footage designed to make you drool over the upcoming Hobbit movie.

Oh baby, yeah.  I’m in the wrong business.

*If you’ve never seen this in theaters… well.  I’m sorry for you.

Movie of the Week: Logan’s Run.

We say adieu to The Lord of the Rings – The Motion Picture Trilogy and put up instead Logan’s Run, for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Why would anybody think that there’d be a reason?

Why, the very idea.

Movie of the Week: The LoTR Trilogy.

So farewell to 12 Monkeys, and hello to The Lord of the Rings – The Motion Picture Trilogy.

Because sometimes you just have to take the half day and watch the whole blessed thing through, that’s why.
