Bilbo Battles
Your article gave me hope that the Hobbit film will become a reality rather than just a possibility.
Tamarac, Fla.

Thanks for the in-depth article on Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings troubles (”Can There Be Peace in Middle-earth?”). If a Hobbit deal falls through, maybe Jackson should produce a film based on his conflict with New Line. Released by Universal, of course.

It was a pleasant surprise to find ”Great Scot” among your pages! Craig Ferguson has revived the element absent from late-night television: humor. Thanks for a bright, fresh story about one of the reasons I stay up at night.

Love Fest
I laughed out loud at Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Stupid Questions (Spotlight). I appreciated Dan Snierson’s incisive silliness and Hewitt’s mirth in getting things off her, uh, chest.

Boy, did I relate to Christine Spines’ ”My Satanic Verses.” As a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma, a cookie-baking, horror-craving wonder woman. I still fondly remember the ”Poltergeist Pillow,” lovingly made so I could hide during scary parts. This essay reminded me of my favorite person in the world.

At 6, I got to see Psycho during its first run. When the shower scene came, it was like a sucker punch to the gut. My sisters had shower issues for a long time….

Picket Defense
Who cares if a strike could delay Transformers 2 (News & Notes)? Is it so tragic to have another mindless film off screens? Perhaps this will embolden studios to take on nonunion movies with no-name actors and create a more level playing field.

Monster Talent
In his review of 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later (DVD), Chris Nashawaty seems surprised that the ”once-schlocky” genre could evolve and tackle weighty social issues. But George A. Romero allowed it to rise above the arms-outstretched-moaning-mindless creatures that imitators were apparently content with. Can’t we give Romero his due? Danny Boyle certainly gave the genre a twist, but he was standing on the shoulders of a giant.

I loved the LostHeroes battle of the beards (Television). But you forgot the father of Jack Shephard’s and Nathan Petrelli’s beards! In the season 3 premiere of Alias, Jack Bristow had an especially scraggly one after being in solitary confinement for almost a year.
