And now for something completely different: How to See Five Hobbits in Five Days
Step 1 - Wednesday Night: Watch Dominic Monaghan in "LOST"

Step 2 - Thursday Night: Watch Sean Astin in "My Name is Earl"

Step 3 - Friday Night: Watch "The Flying Scotsman" (opens May 4) with Billy Boyd (yay!!!!)

Step 4 - Saturday Night: Watch "Paris Je t'Aime" (opens May 4), a collection of short films about love in Paris, including a short starring Elijah Wood

Step 5 - Sunday Night: Watch "The Treatment" (opens May 4), with Ian Holm

Bonus #1: for "Firefly" fans, watch Nathan Fillion in "Waitress" (opens May 4; plays the love interest of a waitress married to a louse of a husband; got good reviews at Sundance)

Bonus #2: Elijah Wood look-a-like Tobey MacGuire stars in a little film called "Spiderman 3" - *G*

Weee! Where are you seeing these? Are they in wide release? Not that I have much in the way of time, but still... *goes to imdb*

I know they're showing in this area! So... not everybody will be able to see them - but we Chicagoans can! Heck, Flying Scotsman is at several places. Unfortunately... the reviews are just so-so. But I'll see it for Billy. *S* I saw Elijah's at the film festival last fall, and I'll probably pass on Ian's. But I watched LOST and I'm recording "Earl".

And Nathan Fillion's movie sounds very good.

Or if THE FLYING SCOTSMAN has not shown up yet in your hometown, rent ON A CLEAR DAY with Billy Boyd.

That's perfect, you are so clever! Especially counting Ian Holm -- The Fifth Hobbit -- cracks me up!

I laughed when I saw "The Fifth Hobbit" - made me think of "The Fifth Element" - *L*!

Yes, it's a particularly fortunate conjunction of the stars... or perhaps I should say, the media!

Ha! That sounds exactly like my week; except i'll be seeing 'Spidey 3' tonight at midnight ; that would just be weird to have the same exact schedule. ;)

You could always round out the Fellowship with dvd viewings of 'X-Men', 'Pirates of the Caribbean', 'Hidalgo', and one of the 'Sharpe' movies. Those would be my picks, anyhow. :)
