Man I wish I would have bought tickets for Trilogy Tuesday! I could be watching FOTR right now! :)

I am happy that I got to see both FOTR EE and TTT EE at the theater though, so Im definately in the mood to see ROTK. Im going straight from work to the theater tomorrow, cant wait!

Ill say this much, Im much more excited about ROTK than I ever was about AOTC.

I swear to god tomorrow cant get here quick enough! I'm about to platz! Tomorrow is going to be the longest day I've experienced in ages.

Just watched a Starz! preview of ROTK, Jesus this looks fantastic! I know what will happen, but I'm still overwhelmingly excited.

I'll say this much, if we didnt have the original trilogy, my room would be filled with Lord of the Rings merchandise right now, not Star Wars...

So...  Beth?  Spuff?  How was it?  As awesome as we're all anticipating?!  No spoilers though...  Beth, did you make it through the entire Trilogy Tuesday unscathed?  Was it great to see them all back to back to back?  Or was it exhausting by the time you were nearing the end (which I can't possibly imagine being the case)?

I'm hoping to catch it tomorrow evening, but since I've been getting my ass kicked at work, and sleeping about 4 hours a night this week, I'm not sure I'd make it all the way through.  I want to be as alert as possible as I take this bad boy in!  We'll see...

Giddy with anticipation, I am!   :D

Then either Thursday or over the weekend I'm off to see it once more....  Maybe twice depending who I get to go.

Well, I went!

Initially, I spoke to the theatre manager about 2 weeks ago regarding a Midnight show, to which he told me that his theatre just doesn't do well with Midnight shows.

That said, they ended up scheduling one just the other day for which I got tickets for.

Get to the theatre at 11:15, lo and behold, literally all of Mooresville, NC had shown up! To my surprise, they added a 12:15 and 12:30. The 12:00 show was just packed, as was the 12:15 which I had to trade tickets for.

I can only sum the movie up in two words.

F***ing incredible.

I think it's the best of the 3, and it goes without saying, although I'll say it, that this is the greatest movie franchise of all time.

It clocks in just under 3 hrs, 15 min, so be careful as to what you get at the concession stand.  ;D

I'm going to try and go back either this afternoon, or Thursday morning.

Brilliant, brilliant work.

Caught it at a midnight show last night as well. Amazing. Beautiful. Amazingly beautiful. The battles were just spectacular, and wait until you see what Aragorn has up his sleeve for the battle of the Pellenor.

Spuffy--what theater were you in last night? I was in #1.

Just got back from the 11am showing. It is a wonderful movie. Many things are cut from the book but I hear they are put back in for the extended DVD, over an hour of footage. :)

I recomend this movie. The Trilogy is now complete. Can't wait to see how Peter Jackson translates "The Hobbit" after he finishes the remake of "King Kong."
