Chomsky reviews FoTR movie
#1
OK, I'm still laughing.

This is off of War of the Ring.net, I think. Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky give a blow-by-blow review of FoTR. This McSweeney guy is a genius:

Part I: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2003/04/22fellowship.html

Part II:http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2003/04/23fellowship.html

Pretty long, but worth it.

LOL, I cannot believe how close to Noam Chomsky's style that is. "Peemptive war on Mordor, indeed."
"What song the Sirens sang, or what name Achilles assumed when he hid himself among women, though puzzling questions are not beyond conjecture." - Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Medici

Yes indeedy, their comments are quite something!:laugh:
