    We bought the original DVD collectors editions when they came out.

    Then we bought the Extended Editions.

    Then we bought the Blu-Rays.

    Then for Christmas I bought the Extended Blue-Rays.


    Spent like 400 dollars on those damn movies.

    My parents got me the theatrical editions this Christmas.

    In the sales I bought the extended editions.

    Now I'm sorted for both a bladder-straining in-depth look at Middle Earth, and the extended version.

    Indeed.

    Also, I managed to get the extended editions on normal DVD for about $15 each at the local used game/movie/music store. Excellent find, and they all seem to work just fine. And yes I watched ALL of the disks... SO MANY SPECIAL FEATURES.

    So I read the first chapter of History

    and it's essentially a framing device for the tales of the Silmarillion that was thrown out

    it's bananas how much this man wrote and how many great ideas he had that he later threw out.

    Tolkien for Boss of the Last Three Thousand Years.

    Damn, that mashup is really slick.

    Also, HISHE put their spin on the movie.

    The vocals at the end are perfect.

    You just now listened to it?

    It's been all over the web for over a year since the trailer was released.

    It was easily the most popular part of it.

    I had no idea there was 18 years between Frodo receiving the ring and him actually heading off to dispose of it.

    Damn, I forgot that the movie totally compresses that into what seems like maybe a week or two but it is almost two decades in the book.

    Sure. Frodo is in his fifties before the story goes anywhere. I remember because when I first started on the Lord of the Rings at the age of eight, that was the weirdest thing to me - not the wizards or evil ghosts or orcs or whatever else, but that some old guy could be the protagonist of the story

    Yeah, even the 1978 animated movie managed to explain that part.

    I think it's for the best that the movies ignore some of the ridiculous ages/time periods - Aragorn's like eighty at the time of the Fellowship, isn't he?

    well, while hobbits age less slowly than dwarves, 50 is still considered relatively young. It would not be the same thing as a 50 year old man doing things, and he's also slowed his aging down by owning the ring. He's basically 30.

    I mean, to put things in perspective, being in your twenties has an infantile name that is the same connotation as being in your teens, for hobbits.

    oh, also we are currently watching through Midsommer Murders on netflix, and there is one where Orlando Bloom guest stars as a delinquent youth who is murdered for basically being the worst sort of person, with a pitchfork through the heart. It was filmed during the production of LOTR, and the manor of the people in the story is named Lothlorien.

    i was losing my mind during that episode, it was hilarious.

    Honestly I'm glad this changes in the movie
    The idea of waiting so damn long to do things takes a lot of urgency out of the quest
    Especially when even after Gandalf tells Frodo to leave he says, "Sure, I'll get around to it sometime this year."
    I like to think in the movie about three or four years pass between the party and Gandalf coming back
    That seems to be enough time to do his business

    Shit they did? That's the one extended edition my family didn't own so I've forgotten a lot of those scenes. Huh.

    It's the scene in which Aragorn tries to dispose of the stew Eowyn gave to him.

    Gandalf was working on his One Ring thesis down in the libraries of Minas Tirith. Shit takes time. Especially if you want to graduate Magus Cum Laude.
