Guess what comes out in exactly one month!


Things I am particularly excited about re: the regular version:

Documentary "On the Set: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (Starz/Encore special)

Documentary "Return to Middle-earth" (WB special) (I saw this when it was on TV and loooved it!)

Short film by Sean Astin "The Long and Short of It" (YAY! I've been wanting to see this!)

And then in November?

When the November edition comes out, I will be officially curling up in my house and never coming out again.

According to the blurb on the New Line Cinema site, the bonus dvd stuff with the snazzy version sounds very similar to what came with Fellowship.

"Disc 3 includes features on adapting the book into a screenplay, planning the film, design and inspiration for locations in Middle-earth, storyboards to pre-visualization, a Weta Workshop visit, an Atlas of Middle-earth, an interactive map of New Zealand highlighting the location scouting process, galleries of art and slideshows with commentaries by the artists, and much more! Disc 4 consists of sending actors to battle-preparation for sword fighting, Principal photography: Stories from the set, digital effects including motion capture and "Massive" (a program to create armies of Orcs), "Bigatures"-A close-up look at the detailed miniatures used in the film"

Um, didn't we see pretty much ALL of that on the last dvd's?

This edition comes with a Gollum statue, which is nice and all, but I still really, really want those Argonath bookends.

Do you see how they taunt me? I am always seeking these bookends, the precious... they are calling to me... must get the precious...

(cough cough)

Its amazing how a little bit of moving around can wake you up. I was grooving to the Hobbit Safety Dance Video, and it woke me right up. Then I went outside and did some jumping jacks and stretches and danced around for a few minutes, and that helped a lot as well! Plus, I've just let Lula back in the house to keep me company.

Thank goodness for second winds!
