J. R. R. Tolkien

No, I have not discovered hobbits in my basement. I discovered this.

If you are a complete geek like me, and you thought the three Lord of the Rings movies were the best things ever filmed, you are going to love this independently made 40 minute film extending the Jackson trilogy.

What is truly amazing is that they made the whole movie on a budget of less than 10,000$. Even more amazing --- it is actually a pretty darn good short film. Move over Peter Jackson.

PS: Hat Tip to Gerit Quealy for pointing this out to me.

PPS: Wouldn't seem right to have a LOTR post without mentioning that Tolkien was an Oxford Professor.
