The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey (Extended Edition) DVD

Filed under : TOLKIEN Miscellanea > DVDs

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Extended Edition DVD)The Extended Edition 5-DVD boxed set of the first part of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy of movies.

New material includes a couple of new songs (Bofur in Rivendell, Goblin King) and several little extra bits of exposition including some more background explanation behind the enmity between the Dwarves of Erebor and the Elvenking Thranduil. If you liked the theatrical release you will love this. If you didn’t - well, there’s more here not to like.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (DVD)

Filed under : TOLKIEN Miscellanea > DVDs

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (DVD)The DVD of the first part of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy of movies.

There are plenty of reviews around so I won’t go into too much detail here. Tolkien purists may find some of Peter Jackson’s changes/additions unnecessary, while fans of his earlier Lord of the Rings movies will lap this up as it is very much in keeping with the previous films.

Children’s Treasury of Literature

Filed under : TOLKIEN Miscellanea > General Fantasy / Literature

The Children's Treasury of Literature In ColourThis collection of children’s stories includes the first chapter of The Hobbit - ‘An Unexpected Party’ illustrated by Robert J. Lee.

Tolkien himself famously described these illustrations as “vulgar, stupid and entirely out of keeping with the text”.

Very much a product of the times, the illustrations are indeed playful and a bit psychedelic. But personally I rather like Robert J. Lee’s pictures - and the fact that they have Dwalin the dwarf with an actual blue beard.

Tolkien related magazine content (various)

I have collected a number of magazines which feature either Tolkien-related cover stories (mostly about Peter Jackson’s movies), or articles inside. I haven’t photographed them all though. Honestly that would have been too much… Still, they’re all listed at the link below.
