 Veni, veni, Emmanuel, 
 Captivum solve Israel, 
Qui gemit in exilio, 
 Privatus Dei Filio. 

 Gaude! Gaude! Emanuel 
 Nascetur pro te, Israel.

O come, O come Emmanuel 
To free your captive Israel 
 That mourns in lonely exile here 
Until the Son of God appear. 

Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel, 
 To you shall come Emmanuel. 


So, This is The Hobbit

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence, and frightening images.

It doesn't matter what I think.
Because of  loyalty to Tolkien and to the previous, well-done movie trilogy, this movie will be heralded as "not as good as The Lord of the Rings, but alright," and people will still flock to see it.
But all I can say is that Tolkien did not deserve that.
It starts out well enough, what with the prologue, and the dwarves barging in uninvited to Bilbo's home and singing, "That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!" And Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage fit their roles perfectly. It seemed, then, that the movie was going to be alright.

But then the quest began and so did my disappointment.
Unnecessary characters who weren't in the book, unnecessary fight scenes, and far too much emphasis on the necromancer--who only gets a passing mention in the book. The movie was very BUSY, with so many fights and  battles and whatnot, so that throughout all the busy-ness, the heart of the story was ultimately lost. Much of it felt like filler, like Jackson was attempting to cram in as much as possible in order to make part 1 of a simply-told children's book a three-hour long explosion.
(If that does little to convince those who have no interest in the books, then may I say how fake the CGI orcs and goblins looked? And the goblins were quite unbearable to watch, as their design made them much more gag-inducing than Jackson's previous creations.)

It's a shame the way it turned out, and I'm afraid I won't be seeing this again.
I still love Tolkien, however, and will forever remain true to the previous movie trilogy. This film, however, seems to have no part with them.

Verdict: You'll probably go see it anyway, but if the book is dear to your heart I advise you look elsewhere for a true adaptation.

The Hobbit Quotes Part 1

>> Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Picture by Justin Gerard
"Good Morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.
"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
"All of them at once," said Bilbo.

"We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!"

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,/To dungeons deep and caverns old,/We must away, ere break of day,/To seek the pale enchanted gold./The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,/While hammers fell like ringing bells,/In places deep, where dark things sleep,/In hollow halls beneath the fells./For ancient king and elvish lord/There many a gleaming golden hoard/They shaped and wrought, and light they caught,/To hide in gems on hilt of sword./On silver necklaces they strung/The flowering stars, on crowns they hung/The dragon-fire, on twisted wire/They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Trolls simply detest the very sight of dwarves (uncooked).

"Where did you go off to, if I may ask?" said Thorin to Gandalf as they rode along.
"To look ahead," said he.
"And what brought you back in the nick of time?"
"Looking behind," said he.

Even the good plans of wise wizards like Gandalf and of good friends like Elrond go astray sometimes when you are off on dangerous adventures over the Edge of the Wild; and Gandalf was a wise enough wizard to know it.

"Why, O why did I ever leave my hobbit-hole!" said poor Mr Baggins bumping up and down on Bombur's back.

He could hear the goblins beginning a horrible song: Fifteen birds in five firtrees,/their feathers were fanned in a fiery breeze!/But, funny little birds, they had no wings!/O what shall we do with the funny little things?/Roast 'em alive, or stew them in a pot;/fry them, boil them and eat them hot?

"A very good tale!" said he. "The best I have heard for a long while. If all beggars could tell such a good one, they might find me kinder. You may be making it all up, of course, but you deserve a supper for the story all the same."

"Breakfast!" he cried. "Where is breakfast?"
"Mostly inside us," answered the other dwarves who were moving about the hall; "but what is left is out on the veranda."

Famous Literary Swords: Sting

>> Saturday, December 8, 2012

The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

As you can see, there are no Elvish markings when Bilbo first finds it.
These were added later by the elves at Rivendell.

Sting was lost around the same time as Glamdring, and in the same battle. Along with Glamdring, Sting was found in the troll hoard, where it was described as a blade that "would have made only a tiny pocket-knife for a troll, but it was as good as a short sword for the hobbit". The sword glowed blue whenever orcs or goblins were near (a common property of blades forged in Gondolin).

The sword's gaining of a name is an historic occurrence. After killing a spider in Mirkwood "all alone by himself...without the help of the wizard or the dwarves", Bilbo felt "a different person, and much fiercer and bolder..."

...he wiped his sword on the grass and put it back into its sheath. "I will give you a name," he said to it, "and I shall call you Sting."
Bilbo carried the weapon throughout the "incident with the dragon" and ended up giving Sting to his nephew Frodo, when the young hobbit was setting out to destroy the One Ring.
The sword seems to come in full circle, for it was on that same quest that Sam took up the sword to protect Frodo and kill the most dangerous and deadly of all spiders, Shelob.

"Let him go, you filth."

At the end of the Third Age Frodo gave the sword to Sam, and the sword became a Gamgee family heirloom.

If there's one collection of Greek myths I love, it's The McElderly Book of Greek Myths. It has to be one of the only collections I shall ever buy for my children.

The first reason, of course, is the narrative. Instead of treating the people scattered throughout the tales as stiff, black-and-white archetypes, Mr. Kimmel gives them character, explians their weaknesses and describes their strengths. He really makes them human (if human can be used to describe the mythical beings in the stories.)

Take this example from "Pandora's Box":
Epimetheus came home. He found Pandora lying on the floor...Her eyes were red from weeping.
The overturned box lay in the corner. He knew at once what had happened. "I am so sorry," Pandora said. "I broke my promise...I only meant to take a peek. Instead I ruined everything."
"Don't be sorry," said Epimetheus, taking her hand. "You made a mistake. That is all. the fault was mine. I should have explained what was in the box and why it had to remain closed."
It also has the occasional laugh, as shown in "Persephone and Hades":
Persephone let out a shriek. The ruler of the Underworld was frightening enough. Seeing him in
love was absolutely terrifying.
Even Medusa has depth. She is evil, to be sure, but only came down that path after becoming embittered by the curse that took away her beauty. 
And the romances are told in such a  beautiful way--even if most of them are tragic. (As a poster for the opera Orpheus and Eurydice once said: "Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Boy goes to Hades to get girl back.")

But the main reason I adore this collection are Pep Montserrat's illustrations. They add such passion and drama to the stories! The emotion in the pictures, coupled with Mr. Kimmel's writing really bring it all to life.
Take a look:
"Now is the time. Kill your father!"

I never wondered what Daedalus and Icarus might have felt
when they were imprisoned--until this illustration.


The Lord of the Rings Tag

>> Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Got this off The Life of a Musician and Dancer.
Couldn't resist.
So here we go:

Have you read the books? 
Three times. Each.

Provided you've read the books, which is your favorite? 
The Fellowship of the Ring. There's something just so classic, so childhood-y nostalgic about it for me.

Have you read the Hobbit? 
Yes, twice. When I was young I remember the old cartoon was playing for it, but I didn't like it and didn't even know it had anything to do with The Lord of the Rings.

Have you read any Lord of the Rings companions? Not movie companions, but Middle Earth and book companions? 
I read the poems about Tom Bombadil, and I've also read The Children of Hurin, but it's not my favorite.

Have you seen the movies? 
Have I seen the movies? *maniac laugh*  Why does it ask us silly questions, preciousss?

Have you read any movie guides? If so, which one(s)? 
I own all of The Art of the Lord of the Rings books. They're brilliant.

Which is your favorite movie? 
It's between Fellowship and Return of the King. While Fellowship once more reminds me of my childhood, The Return of the King is. just. epic.

What's your favorite scene from the trilogy?
Just one?! Well, I'd have to say where Gandalf and the Rohirrim come charging down the hill as the sun rises. That's just stunning.

What scenes do you find exceptionally touching?
The Breaking of the Fellowship, where Frodo remembers Gandalf's words and Sam goes after him,
"There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo",
and "I can't carry it for you. But I can carry you!"
Come to think of it, mostly ones involving Sam.

Have you seen the extended movies?
Yes, and I own the second one. It was a birsssday present.

Tell us your three favorite characters (good luck narrowing it down) and why.
Sam for his loyalty and innocent courage, Aragorn for his selfless bravery, and Faramir, because he has many emotional struggles, and so his happy ending with Eowyn is much more sweet.

Who bugs you the most in the terms of being really annoying (but not necessarily wicked?)
Gollum. I mean, sometimes I pity him, but sometimes I just wish Sam would shove his head in.

What are your feelings on Boromir? 
 It bugs me when people who haven't read the books think he's evil. He's not. He just gave in to the lure of the ring, and that was his downfall. He learned his lesson too late. But he was a good man, and you can really see that, especially in the way he looks out for Merry and Pippin, and in that extended scene with him and Faramir (why they didn't keep that in the theatrical version, I'll never know).

Who do you like better, Aragorn or Faramir? 
Aragorn. But I still love Faramir--he's also a good man.

Which Lord of the Rings weapon would you use?
A bow.

What do you think about Eowyn?
"...fair and cold, like a morning of pale spring..."
She's an incredible, brave woman.

If you were going into battle, which character would you want to take with you?

Which girl is your favorite?

Which hobbit is your favorite?
Samwise Gamgee.
(These questions are getting too easy.)

Which location is your favorite?
The Shire is just picturesque. I could gladly live there till the end of my days.

Famous Literary Swords: Narsil/Andúril

>> Thursday, November 15, 2012

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Narsil was forged in the First Age by the Dwarf Telchar, and its name was Quenya for "red and white flame". Everyone who's seen the movies thinks they know the story of how The Blade that was Broken came to broken in the first place. But they don't.
In the Battle of the last Alliance, King Elendil fell in death and Narsil broke beneath him. In the films, however, it breaks by Isildur (Elendil's son) killing Sauron. Also Narsil, in the books, breaks into two pieces while in the films it breaks into six.
The re-forging of the sword differs as well. In The Fellowship of the Ring Aragorn has it re-forged before they set out for Mordor, meaning that he probably was close to acepting his role as king.

The Sword of Elendil was forged anew by Elvish smiths, and on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon, and the rayed Sun...and about them was written many runes...And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West.

And, of course, you all know how it ends up in the films.

But I won't be a purist. Though the films and books differ, the sword of Narsil is fascinating. And they couldn't have done a better design (Thank you, John Howe.)

Wreck-It Ralph: A Non-Gamer's Review

>> Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Wreck-It Ralph
Rated PG for some rude humor and mild action/violence.

I'll be the first to admit, I am not the intended audience. I am not a gamer. At all.
So the fact that I actually enjoyed this film is slightly shocking.

Wreck-It Ralph is a film with surprising depth and emotion, as well as some satisfactory twists at the end. Somehow it left me feeling much more fulfilled than this year's Pixar project.
Admittedly, it didn't pick up until he agreed to assist Vanellope. Then I actually got to sit back and enjoy it as Ralph and his little charge created chaos in their candy-coated world, and got to appreciate each other more. The moral was handled extremely well, and I had no idea how Ralph was going to manage to get out of the muddle he found himself in.
And though I expected all of the video game jokes and references to fly over my head, there was actually nothing that I didn't understand (or at least I didn't notice that I didn't understand.)
And yes, there were many crude jokes on bodily functions, but clean jokes were slipped in for older viewers, so I found myself laughing constantly. However, flaws included Calhoun's awkward back-story shown in flashbacks, and King Candy becoming a bug at the end (I was confused on that part until one of my movie buddies leaned over and reminded me that whatever the bugs eat becomes the bug. Right. They probably should have explained that better.)

While the film was more FUN than inspiring, I rather liked and really enjoyed it. It's not destined to be a favorite, but I will see it again on DVD. Preferably on a Friday night with a box of pepperoni pizza.

Favorite Line: "How many licks does it take to reach the center?"
Verdict: Wait for the DVD, although I'm highly tempted to tell you to go see it in theaters simply so you can enjoy the breathtaking animated short "Paperman" in HD and surround sound.

Grey Travel Rating: 3/5

Animation: 5/5

Plot: 4/5

Characters: 4/5

Acting: 4/5

Objectionable Content: A zombie's heart is pulled from his chest, mostly as humor, but it has a certain gross factor. Some mild crude humor involving bodily functions.

4. Notify them that you've awarded them.
5. No tagging back.
6. And the eleven blogs you tag must have less than 200 followers.

2. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. That is, a Mormon. (And, no, we don't practice polygamy:)
3. I've ridden a horse bareback.
4. Norse mythology is fascinating to me, and despite enjoying The Avengers, I'm having a hard time with these new misconceptions about Thor, Loki, Heimdall, and Odin. It's kinda frustrating.
5.  Prehistory is also a fascinating subject for me.
6. I think every writer ought to own a multi-purpose black cloak. It helps enormously.
7. I plan on attending the midnight showing of The Hobbit. It will be my first.

As long as I was some animal living at Redwall Abbey I'd be perfectly content.

Famous Literary Swords: Glamdring

>> Monday, October 22, 2012

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

It is a sword of many names. In Sindarin its name literally translates to "Foe-hammer", and the Goblins in The Hobbit knew it only as "beater".

It was forged for the elf Turgon, a king of Gondolin during the First Age. He only used it twice in battle and the sword was ultimately lost to history for thousands of years.
Gandalf first came upon it in The Hobbit. After the incident with the trolls, they came upon the trolls' hoard, and it was there that Thorin Oakenshield gained the sword Orcrist (literally, "Goblin-cleaver", and nicknamed "biter" by said Goblins) and Gandalf gained Glamdring.
(It was there that Bilbo Baggins also took Sting, but we'll get to that in a later post.)

Throughout The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Gandalf wielded it, relying both on Glamdring and his skills as a wizard. After the War of the Ring and Gandalf's departure to the Undying Lands, the sword was kept in the treasure vault at Minas Tirith.

Ever since the films, Glamdring's look has been pretty much set in stone, although I rather like John Howe's representation:

The film version:

On the sword hilt it reads:
Turgon aran Gondolin tortha, Gar a matha I vegil Glamdring Gud Daedheloth, Dam an Glamhoth
which, translated is:
Turgon king of Gondolin wields, has and holds the sword Glamdring, Foe of Morgoth's realm, hammer to the Orcs.

And, of course, Glamdring will appear in the upcoming Hobbit film (which means that the clip with Gandalf in the ruins must happen after the troll incident. Speaking of which, what are those ruins to begin with?)

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
