[Current Mood |obsessed]

My LotR re-obsession is reaching critical mass. I read Bag Enders - again - last night, and I kept hearing the actors' voices (especially Orlando's *swoons*) reading the relevant bits in my head, and imagining them acting out certain scenes.

I woke the cat up laughing.

It's because I got the new DVD. So much to watch, and I've barely scratched the surface.

Only 26 days till the next movie!

*bounces*

How long? Um, let's see...

Disc 1 and 2: Four different audio commentaries, each of them laid over the film.

The film itself, with added bits. This is split between two discs. It's that long.

Disc 3: Six documentaries about the making of the film from start to finish.

A map of Middle Earth with movie clips to illustrate the Quest.

2000 pieces of artwork from pre-production.

Storyboards and previsualisation sequences with film comparisons.

Disc 4: 11 documentaries about life behind the scenes, and about post-production stuff.

Galleries of behind the scenes photos.

So, all in all, it would probably take over a day to watch the lot, and that would be without any breaks at all. That's my entertainment for the next few weeks, then...

It cost me about £30. It might be cheaper on Amazon, I just couldn't be bothered to wait.

Toronto, Canada. I've got pictures (illegal ones, mind you) and lovely brochures I shall painstakingly scan in. But I might need prodding to do that. I forget. Pictures will be posted at my LJ later, I can promise that. :)

Awwwww, Canada? No fair! What about us Brits?

...

It's not a touring exhibition, by any chance?
