I Am Tempted To Wax Derisive

We saw Fellowship of the Rings tonight. It was a good movie, though my listening comprehension and my LOTR-fu were too weak to quite understand everything that was shown.

At the end of the movie, the kid behind us said, "That was a good movie. They were clearly setting themselves up for a sequel."

With some difficulty, I reminded myself that it is through introducing the uninformed to works of merit that the genre sustains itself. Given that, Lori and I explained to the kid that this was the first part of a much longer story, and the second and third movies had already largely been filmed and would be released over the next two years.

But in my head, I thought derisive words.
