Class the last two days has started with a showing of Sam’s speech from the end of The Two Towers concerning stories and the people in them. Once again, very few students have actually seen the movies (and a smaller number have read the books). It’s interesting how much the zeitgeist changes. There aren’t even that many Marvel fans in my classes these days.
This past Sunday’s FoxTrot strip had a nice nod to the Lord of the Rings, or balrogs, at least. Take a look.
