Rejected from Sundance and Berlin but imdb did bestow us a page so I guess that's something.

A little slow on the uptake but I've recently just seen the final 3rd of the lord of the rings trilogy. Didn't care for number two but very pleased with the project in general. I read the hobbit in 1971 but couldn't make it through book one of Lotr. Now looking forward to the hobit this time next year. here. anyone remember hobbit the animated feature? About as bad as fritz the cat!

Dvr alert: goldstein on Tcm 4:45 am here

TCM has the Alistair Sim version of A Christmas Carol tonight at 8:00. Widely regarded as the best film version of the classic conversion story, I haven’t seen it in the last few years though it had been shown regularly on local stations as “Scrooge” not too long ago. Not sure how the licensing works, but glad it’s back and on TCM where it belongs. Meanwhile they’ve had repeated showings of the 1938 Hollywood version with Reginald Owen which I remember from childhood but hadn’t seen in years until I got cable. It’s not bad, but seeing it again I was struck by its emphasis on religion in contrast to the British film’s harsher depiction of the corrupt heartlessness of business, i.e. capitalism.
