    Is anyone else going to go to "Trilogy Tuesday" - the screening of the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy - in their town this Tuesday?

    I don't think they have it here. :confused: If they do, it hasn't been advertised, and I can't go anyway - working all day. :( I'm not suure when I will see ROTK; I don't get out of work until 11:30 on Tuesday so that's cutting it awfully close for the midnight screening. The first two times we didn't end up seeing the movie until after Christmas just because of the way things worked out, and that may be the case this year.

    I would have loved to, but it has been sold out for at least a month. Instead, 5 of us are going over to my parent's house (large flatscreen/widescreen TV) to watch the first 2 and then go to the midnight showing at the local stadium seating theater. That should be a blast!

    I wish I would have bought tickets for Trilogy Tuesday back in October :(

    I found out about the whole day LOTR too late. But I am going tomorrow night to a midnight showing. Love Sac is presenting this and they are having a pizza party before hand and all sorts of prizes and then after the movie they are serving breakfast. It's going to be cool...... :) :excited:

    My little brother's THERE, right now!!! A theater nearby in Hrahan's showing Trilogy Tuesday!!! One of our friends' mothers is good friends w/the manager that theater, & she managed to get a ticket for him after a last-minute cancellation! He was SOO excited!!! He went w/a big group, and most of them are in costume! (He's been working on that costume for MONTHS!) I'm REALLY excited he got to go, but I admit, I'm REALLY jealous!!!!

    Well, didn't go to Trilogy Tuesday, but held my own. And then went to the midnight showing. Oh man!!!! What a great movie! If the Oscars don't look like below, then something is wrong:

    I agree whole heart. I went today at 11:00am. WOW!!! Best Trilogy ever. What else can I say. It was just fantastic.

    The only down side is they are all done. Now I will look forward t seeing it a second time and then the extended version next year.

    Well, there is at least the possibility of a prequel. Though it's quite a different type of story, if Jackson tackles "The Hobbit" as has been rumored, it would make me very happy. :)

    This was very cool....by the end you had a real sense of taking a "journey" and it was a treat to finally see the extended editions of the films at last. Some people have been disappointed by the lengthy epilogue, but personally I loved it and I think it will be a crime if they don't get best Director and best picture.

    BTW, they were giving out a WETA/Sideshow film frame (containing one actual film frame from each of the movies) in Toronto. Did anybody in other cities get this or something else?

    I just got back from seeing it and I agree, it's wonderful! It WILL win best picture, etc. I'm very confident about that! The Trilogy Tuesday in my town sold out the same day tickets came out.

    I can't wait to see this again! And even though I'm insanely happy that it was such a great movie, I'm so sad that its over now! (besides the extended which should be AWESOME).

    Oh! I'm so giddy, I can't possibly go to sleep now! :excited:

    The first Trilogy Tuesday screening at the Paramount in Toronto sold out, but they opened a second theatre (the one I was in) and there were lots of extra seats available...I heard some people here didn't try to go because they assumed it was completely sold out, which was not the case.

    I also have some more info on the SideShow/WETA collectable I mentioned they were handing out Tuesday. Seems everyone who went to Trilogy Tuesday anywhere did indeed get one. They're a true collectable - no two are exactly alike and they are not available for sale. New Line had them made as an exclusive for the event. I imagine a few will be turning up on ebay soon.

    Click here for a picture of one and more info.

    :eek: NOT FAIR!!!!!! I want one!!!!!!

    Yeah, I would have loved to have gotten one of those collectable clips. In my area the marathon sold out super quick too. No second day was added and in a 45 minute area around my house there are at least 7 big theaters and on one carried the event.

    I was disappointed by that.

    I LOVED this movie!!! I thought it was so awesome! And, yes, I did get a bit teary eyed........if this movie doesn't get an Oscar we will truly know there is something wrong with the world.

    I'm having the same sense of "loss" that there won't be anymore but fingers crossed, God-willing they will be able to make the Hobbit.

    Trilogy Tuesday sets are all over E-bay now, if you feel like spending the money to get them.
  16. Manda:-D

    Manda:-D Well-Known Member

    James brought home one of those sets...I hear no two are alike.

    About the movie.....WOW. Leaving the theater, all I could say was, "WOW." I thought I'd end up being REALLY upset a/b how they cut Saruman's end & the House of Healing, (and I WAS), but the movie's STILL fantastic w/o it!!! I mean....WOW. Gotta love movie's like that....I LOVED the ending...And I ended up being SOO happy to see that everybody ends up happy in the end!!! :D Any movie that makes you care THAT much a/b the characters...:D WOW. (We just got back from watching it, so I'm still kinda in a state of shock!!!)

    Man, those WETA sculptures are so cool. I would love to get some of them, but they're way out of my price range. My favorite is the one with Sam and Bill the Pony, and the Gandalf ones are awesome.

    I'm so jealous! My brother saw RotK already!! He said it was good but too long. Three hours and 20 minutes is pretty lengthy, but I don't think I'll mind. And I'm sure if I think it's too long, it'll be in the battle parts, not the end that I've heard some complaints about. A lot of people complained about the beginning of Fellowship being too long, too, but I loved that part; I would've been happy with them taking twice as long to get to Bree! :halo:
  19. bats1972

    bats1972 Well-Known Member

    I thought the end of ROTK was fine, it could have been longer as far as I am concerned.

    I loved the beginning of Fellowship, loved it more when the extended version came out. I too wouldn't mind if the trip to Bree had taken longer. Anything to see more of Hobbiton.

    Yeah, Hobbiton has always been my vision of the ideal place to live. :flirt:
