^ With amazing artwork by Dave Gibbons of 'Watchman' fame. Also includes some other really good short stories from later in the run. Smile

You're amazing. Downloaded and read, that was cool.  Looking forward to the film even more now and looking to get more of the series.

Sure, the ending to Return of the King, where the Elves and others leave for the Grey Havens, is pretty touching, and the Annie Lennox song is pretty decent. But, just imagine if Jackson had incorporated this track:

Which... yeah. Anyhow, still a very good movie.
It's not often I find myself imagining potential sequels to standalone films, however, now I'm thinking of all the possibilities for a 'The Social Network' sequel.

The original only covers Facebook's foundation and rise, we never see it become the monster it is today. Jesse Eisenberg testifying before the senate would be an incredible watch.
Unfortunately, the Young Turks-related YouTube channel What the Flick?! has been canceled, replaced by a podcast I don't intend on following. The show/channel wasn't perfect, and they were often concerned with being PC to a fault, but Christy Lemire was always a delight, I was always interested to hear what Alonso Duralde had to say, and Ben Mankiewicz is just plain awesome. I, for one, will miss their voice.
