|07:53 pm - LotR:RotK:EE DVD, OK?|
(one slightly-frantic unwrapping frenzy later)
...so: anyone want a coupon enabling them to order a miniature statue of Minas Morgul?
Oh, and there's a nice offer in the box for a free (well, free + $3.00 shipping/handling) beefy slipcover to hold all three Extended Edition DVD sets. You don't need a receipt or anything, so go ahead and order now if you're ordering.
And now, please excuse me: I need to disappear from the world for... well, not actually four hours, since (a) I'm going to skim the bits I remember; and (b) I don't have four hours until my work-night bed-time. But close enough. G'night, all...

If you decide to do a giant showing of all three of them, could I wrangle an invite in exchange for yummies? *bats eyelashes*

I won't be able to until January: I'm disappearing on Thursday, and there just isn't time before then to cram eleven-and-a-half frickin' hours
into tonight, tomorrow night, and Wednesday night.
But if you haven't experienced The Trilogy by January when I get back, you – and mindways
, too, if he's so inclined – could wrangle an invite just in exchange for being you. (Well, and batting your eyelashes. Well, you
, anyway, not mindways
. If he's so inclined. I'm stopping now.)

Oh, no, I didn't figure until January anyway - there's fewer than 14 days until Christmas. But you see, I haven't seen the EE of -any- of them. :) (I own the EE of the first two and I'm told I'm getting the third one for Christmas, but our TV is kind of small and lame.)
I'm very amused by the idea of mindways
batting his eyelashes at you. I'll bat mine at you when you get back. :)

I'm game for January, subject to scheduling considerations. (Namely: with breaks for food and bathroom use, The Saga will consume more than half a day even if we skip the credits, so a week-end and an early start will be essential.)
I'd suggest a Saturday, if only so that we have all of Sunday to try to get the circulation restored in our legs. :-)

I'm not actually sure I'd want to do a full viewing of all three extended editions in one day - I'll think about it. :)
However, I would very much like to come over sometime to visit and to see The Iron Giant...

That, too, can be arranged. On the list of "movies I really, really don't mind re-watching", The Iron Giant has a proud place. :-)

Um, me too! Well, I can bat my eyelashes, but I'm not so good on the yummy making front.
|Date:||December 13th, 2004 05:20 pm (UTC)|| |
/me bats eyelashes and offers to cook something. Oh course 11 hrs will be my movie allowance for the entire year!
|Date:||December 13th, 2004 06:25 pm (UTC)|| |
Uh, can I request a different showing so I don't have to sit through 11 hours with a fidgety 5 year old? :D

Given that my viewing room really only seats three in any comfort (or five with extra chairs, but for an endurathon like this you really want to sit on the couch), I suspect we'll have to have several different showings.
might be up for showing the saga by that point, too.
ordered, and done. :) well, the slipcover anyways. Our copy of RotKEE is in the mail from Amazon.
Argh. Freakin' Joe won't sleep for 11.5 hours in a row, so I can't watch it all in one go. Unless I get a sitter... hmmm... :)

If you get a sitter so you can watch the three LotR DVDs, you will officially be a bigger geek than I am. And that's saying something. :-)

Slipcase ordered here. Thankee, sir.
(We're getting our copy for Christmas, AFAIK.)
And *my* house is starting their all-three-episodes viewing orgy tonight, if any of you feel like a last-minute flight to LA. 100" screen, niiiice projector, speakers that have to be bolted down... :)

Okay, so I now have a slipcase but no LotR movies. :}
