For all of you Lord of the Rings fans out there, go to the official site and watch the new video about the extended version. Then join me in saying, "SQUEEEE!!!" I can't wait for the release!

SQUEEEEE!

I have purposely avoided buying any of the DVD's because I knew they were at some point going to come out with the bonanza DVD version!

oh Viggo...you swarthy hunka hunka burnin' love!

Re: SQUEEEEE!

I didn't. I bought the theatrical version knowing full well that I would be buying the extended version in the fall. And when it comes out in the special 5th anniversary mega-amazing version in 2009, I will cheerfully buy that one, too. Peter Jackson has my loyal spending for years to come. [g]

And...Viggo...mmmmmmmmmmm................

Re: SQUEEEEE!

My sentiments exactly. I bought every theatrical version knowing full well I'd buy the extended. Now that my roommate of three years is moving on, I'm going ot have to buy the theatrical version of Fellowship, because it doesn't seem right not to have a complete set.

If there is a Mega-Amazing version in 2009, I'll buy it...I'll set aside money for the Ultimate VR version for its 25th aniversary, too!

And yeah, Viggo...from Lucifer to Aragorn, leader of the world of men. Still a scrumptious hottie...who manages to look gorgeous especially when scruffy and dirty.

Re: SQUEEEEE!

He's at his best scruffy. And with long hair. His Lucifer was amazing.

My copy of the theatrical version of Fellowhip is unplayably scratched, but I hang onto it because of the goodies disk. I have considered re-buying it, but I can't honestly see myself watching the short version, so the complete-ist in me is being resisted.

Re: SQUEEEEE!

Yeah, I own the theatrical VIDEOS of the first two. IN FULL SCREEN. So don't you bitch to me about your scratched short version of the DVD.

Re: SQUEEEEE!

So far I've managed to resist, but now that my roommate is moving out...I may end up gioving in. I can see travelling with these, or loaning them out, because my extended versions stay at home.

I can't wait to get that bad boy in my hot little hands. Shortly thereafter, I'll be hosting a marathon of extended version watching, I'm sure.

I have one scheudled her for December 18, all three extended movies, one after another. I know that I will have to have at least one more because we have more people who want to do it than we have space for bodies in the house - but I shall persevere!!!!

Re: Squeeeeee!

I was unable to go to the theatre marathon because it was in the midst of finals, alas.

I have the Two Towers gift box, and haven't really done anything with the sculpture. I was going to skip it this time, but then I saw that it's Minas Tirith and I'm rethinking....

Yeah, I put it in the other day thinking I'd just watch it for a little while, and there I was, sobbing as Sam lifted Frodo to his shoulders, sobbing at "My friends! You bow down to no one!" sobbing as Frodo departed for the Grey Havens. I just couldn't turn it off.

I'm sure one of my friends will get the extended trilogy. And then we'll spend a day watching them back-to-back-to-back.

I feel so fortunate that the release is right at the end of Finals.

You, too, huh? I can barely contain myself. It's an act of self-control not to watch it over and over again.

*SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!*

I really want them to release a collectors edition of all three extended versions, but now I don't know if they will in time for Christmas. Sad, 'cause I told my parents that was all I wanted for Christmas.

Maybe I'll convince them to get me the seperate extended versions....

You won't see the collector's set for a while - that would be bad marketing.

I simply ADORE your icon. I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating.

Not looking not looking not looking!!!

This is the last hurrah, so I want to be completely surprised by it. No trailors or anything!

I wonder what Peter Jackson will do with this trilogy on, say, the tenth anniversary? I'm not even going to mention George Lucas-ifying, but I wonder if he'll release any more specials about behind the scenes stuff or anything like that. Perhaps I'm getting a bit ahead of myself

I certainly hope he will. I will keep buying. Becuase I'm a fangirl and proud of it!
