    Hmmm, it was way cooler in my mind's eye.

    Event Horizon . . . solar systems being devoured . . . Big Bang Singularity at the center . . . Matter-antimatter collisions . . . Dark Energy.

    I guess I've read too many sci-fi stories.

    WOW!!

    To my shame my rate slowed down since the movies. I've done the more difficult (but in many ways more interesting) Silmarillion x2 so far...and hopefully will follow my LOTR journey with #3.
