BBC archival footage of J.R.R. Tolkien. Very groovy. He talks about trees.

The Tombs Of Atuan - Ursula K. Le Guin

This is one of the greatest things I've ever read in my life.

Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King The Movie (2003)

Still an impressively good adaptation of an impossible-to-adapt book. It still feels so fresh, and the special effects still work so well, that it's hard to think that this is sixteen years old.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows The Movie Part One (2010)

It's pretty hard to write about this movie in 2019 without feeling the crushing weight of Harry Potter as cultural phenomena, or the franchise's increasingly-desperate and bizarre 'wizards poop their pants' social media presence. But here goes:

This was the best of the Potter movies. Not as stylish as Azkaban, but also no time travel. It took a lot of risks that payed off, and has some really great, memorable moments you'd never except from the seventh movie in a franchise. On the other hand, they might have been best to spread out the risk-taking a bit, because the the next one is so disappointingly bland and by-the-numbers that it ruins this one by association.
