Do you remember?

Far back in the mists of Time of early 2011, rumour spread that Peter Jackson was asking his fans to submit questions whilst the production on The Hobbit was underway. The director stated he would be going through the questions and answering 20 of them as filming took place. Continue reading

cup-of-tea

In keeping with tradition, I decided to write another brief blog post in honour of Peter Jackson’s birthday.

Last year I wrote a short letter dedicated to the director, praising his work and thanking him for introducing me to cinema and Middle-earth.
