  1. Sara appreciated posters more than trailer. A bit disappointed. 

  1. Gary—it depends on what the series is like. Controversy: races of people, bigotry, social justice oh my. “Evil can create anything new… it can only pervert what is already made.” Get woke, get broke. 

  1. Chris—has mixed feelings. Cinematography of an ad 

  1. Hawke—big and expansive for 2nd age, bigger than 3rd age LOTR and hobbit. Disappointing no meat. None the wiser. Told us nothing. A lot of CGI. Wished they gave snippets of story.

Spokane Smial Secretary,

P.S. I assume we are talking about Tolkien's influence on/opposition from Moorcock, rather than Cherryh? 
Hawke: Correct.
