To the Free Peoples of Middle Earth:
It is now near three fortnights since the glorious conclusion to our
beloved trilogy was released for all to see. Since then, most of us have
returned to the theatre repeatedly, always in complete awe of what is
certainly one of the greatest film creations of all time. As a result
of our reverence (or obsession) Return of the King has climbed the
charts of movie history, currently standing at a respectable seventh
(aprox.). Yet, it has not topped it predecessors, nor its greatest of
adversaries (namely, Harry Potter), and sales are quickly declining.
Such as this, I call on all who have previously shown their devotion
to once again return to the theatre. For though we bask in the glory of
the Golden Globes, the true test is yet to come. As the impending
Academy Awards draw near, we would show that our support and love of these
films is unfaltering, even as the enthusiasm of the masses fades. Let us
make this upcoming weekend, the last of January and the first of
February, a weekend to remember.
So gather all Men and Elves, Wizards and Hobbits, Dwarves, Ents,
Huorns, Mearas, Eagles; invite even Nazgul, orcs, Balrogs, Dark Lords and
the like so long as they are willing to sit in peace and in honour of the
Professor that we all love. Whether your call is "Elbereth!" or
"Elendil!", whether you come for the Shire or for Gondor, whether this is
your last march or a ride unto glory and the world's ending, let us all
come to the theatre one last time.
The theatre guard shall take up the call, for the Fans of Middle Earth
have returned! Let this message be passed to all, so that we shall have
a weekend worthy of song.
Arise, arise, Followers of Tolkien!
pass the message on
