Unlike Melinda, I did not grow up with Lord of the Rings in my house. My family had always believed that Lord of the Rings, was this dark,evil, and satanic film. I would look at the cover, and really think that these movies were just as bad as Harry Potter! But whenever I was with Melinda, she would NEVER stop talking about it! It was when one day she said "Lord of the Rings really helps me get a better picture of the Bible" And I'm just like, what are you talking about??? How can you even think about referring these films to the Bible??? Then she told me that the author who wrote these books was a devoted Christian, which got me to thinking, "Why would a devoted Christian write a satanic book?" Of course I couldn't of a reason, so I finally agreed to watch them, and I thought that it was going to be like a real serious movie where if you laugh, you die. But it was nothing like that! I was completely taken back about the whole Shire thing. I was just shocked that such an "evil" movie, would allow such joy to take place with the Hobbits. And then came the One Ring. When it first came on screen, I was like "Oh no, this is where it begins" but once again I was wrong! I was amazed through the whole thing, there was so much love, and self-sacrifice throughout the trilogy. I thought that Lord of the Rings, would be something that I would watch one time, and then never have a desire to watch it again. Little did I know that it would be my favorite movie of all time.
