An Unexpected Joke

Peter Jackson played a little joke on us. I am very pleased that I am geeky enough to notice it. I wonder what that says about me?

In the movie “The Hobbit” there is a battle of rock giants. It is also in the book–Chapter 4, I looked it up. The book does not mention where the rock giants are from, a character in the movie mentions they are from Ettinsmoor. These are well-traveled rock giants: Ettinsmoor is in Narnia!

I don’t mind changes in the Middle Earth movies. They are so well conceived they capture the spirit of Tolkien’s world, the landscape, and the flavors. And I’m very tickled by this joke.
