This is the day that I was anticipating the most. Frankenstein is clearly an influential film, but I had no idea how much so. I’m pretty sure Peter Jackson paid homage to the ending of the film with Saruman’s demise in the extended edition of Return of the King. We were planning on watching The Creature from the Black Lagoon today as well, but that didn’t work out time-wise. We’ll probably end up watching it on Thursday, though.
