The Complete Tolkien Companion by J.E.A. Tyler

Tyler's effort improves with a pleasant prose style and--despite his belated disclaimer for this third A-to-Z version of his guidebook--an underlying tone that relates Tolkien's vision as shrouded both in antiquity and a faint if evanescent presence barely traceable down to our own Earth.

Film

King Kong (2005)

Jackson's film makes Ann's admiration for Kong an earnest distraction from her eventual, proper coupledom with Jack (who, even with Brody's Men's Health coverboy abs, can't compete with the potent spectacle of Kong).
