Return of the King gushiness [Sep. 28th, 2004|11:33 am]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |geekygeeky]

Things that make my lil' fan-girl heart go "SQUEEE!!!": I just received an ad from LordoftheRings.net for the extended edition of Return of the King. Not only will it be a full 50 minutes longer than the theatrical release, the picture in the ad clearly shows Aragorn wrestling with the Palantir, mentally dueling with Sauron. We had previously seen that there would be extended scenes on the Pellinor Field at the end of the battle, and that the Houses of Healing would be added back in. Now I know that another favorite part of the book will be restored (and plenty more Aragorn, which never breaks my heart).

50 minutes is a lot of film time. I can't wait to see what else it will entail. And since it is being released December 14, I will not be torn between obligation and desire - my last final of the semester is the very next day, so I will be able to indulge myself that weekend!

Again I say, "SQUEEEEEE!!!"

I am considering making that Saturday a marathon. I know several people who would happily sit through all 11 hours of it.

YAAAAY!!!! Ooh, I'm so excited. :) And the courthouse is absolutely dead that time of year, so it won't matter if I'm half-asleep after watching it all night either. *g*

Huzzah, December! I heard a rumor it was coming out in November, and I was afraid I would give in to temptation and let my novel fall to the wayside.

Alas, law school will prevent me from participating in NaNoWriMo for two more years. Good luck!

I WANT TO SEE EOMER CRYING OVER HIS SISTER AND UNCLE!!!! They promised us that in the previews, and then it got cut out!

I also want to see Eowyn falling in love with Faramir, but I REALLY want to see Eomer.

It appears that it will be in the extended version.

Re: Box Set

I've seen the box set with all THEATRICAL versions. I have thusfar been able to resist that purchase. I suspect that a final, difinitive box set will be a year away.

It's almost consolation for the fact that this is the end.

Almost.

Squeeeeee!

can't wait... been looking forward to this ever since I started watching RotK on a near-weekly basis. (Yes I really have been for the most part... it's dropped to every week and a half to two weeks now because of classes)

Must.. see... *posts to gondorlicious*

I know. [sigh]

So, if I have a LotR marathon to watch the whole extended trilogy from beginning to end on the big screen, I take it you would like to be invited?

I won't be able to afford it :(

On an off-topic note, I came up w/another costume idea for you. Bit of a gender-bender though....

DOOMSDAY!

Specifically, in the "covered head to toe in a green jumpsuit w/goggles and one arm chained back" mode, right after he escaped. I've always wanted to do this one myself, but could never come up with even the small amount of $$ needed due to my SW addiction! ('Course, I wanted to partially rip the suit to expose bits of craggy bone and grey skin, but that's cus I'm a costuming lunatic and want everything to be uber cool. Uber cool almost ALWAYS = Expensive, sadly. At least, when it comes to MY ideas.

I am exceptionally broke right now, so my costuming choice may be my daughter's suggestion - go as a DC illustrator!

or take it one step further and go as a DC WRITER-then Ferrett will be compelled, as a DC character, to do whatever you write down!!! MUHUHAHAHAAAA!
