About Me

Hi. My name is Peter and I am the creator of The Hobbit Movie News. I made this site in late-September 2013 in order to house all of the latest news concerning The Hobbit film trilogy. I've been working on the site on and off for about a month as of this writing (November 3, 2013).

The reason for making this site is that I loved The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and the first Hobbit movie. In addition, I wanted to make a website about something, so I figured that making it about something that I liked would be a good idea. Thus, this site was born.

One thing that you may want to know about me (which some may consider heretical) is that I haven't read Tolkien's books. Shocking, I know. The reasons for this are several (and I mentioned some of them in this blog post), but basically I was never a big reader and I never actually thought to read the books before watching The Fellowship of the Ring. Now that I'm older and have come to love Tolkien's work through Peter Jackson's films, I certainly will read the books, but it will probably be after seeing the final two Hobbit films. This is so that I can do a comparison of the two as suggested by a member (named dernwyn) of The One Ring forums when I discussed this topic over there.

Anyway, that's all I can think of for now. If there's anything else that you'd like to know, or if you'd like to suggest something for the site, you can email me at radagasthobbit@gmail.com.

Thanks for visiting.
