We just finished a Lord of the Rings marathon here in our house. The Borden and Russell kids watched the extended version of each of the three films three nights in a row, concluding last night at about 1am.
It was awesome. I only watched bits and it was still awesome.
(Did you know that the extended versions are about 4 hours long each? Good grief.)
It was a little difficult trying to get to sleep with the thundering surround-sound booming out of our living room and echoing down the hall to our bedroom every night, but it made for vivid dreaming.
Aragorn has taken up his rightful place as king and all is well again. Phew!
Tolkien...what a guy!
