"And now I'm about to embark on yet another very long journey - through more than a week of LJ posts!!"

Phew!! Wrote above comment on 5 Aug - today I actually caught up!! So many diversions of course:) Oh, and a PS to my previous post - one of the inflight movies on the journey to NJ was 'Forever Young'!!

Fellow ELFlings - re the trailer & clips from the forthcoming LOTR limited edition dvds that were shown at ELF - can anyone remember what was shown? All I can remember is the hobbits falling from 'get off the road' scene (actual hobbits, not stunt doubles), Elijah being wrapped in the web, Ian's special crown (this was actually shown in Ian's South Bank show) & Andrew Lesnie punching the camera!! Not long now til you get these in the US!!


In case anyone missed this, there's a good interview with Emerald Rose here:
http://www.west-of-the-moon.net/emeraldroseinterview.htm
They talk about the One Ring party on Oscar night and how Lij was hiding because he didn't want to leave - he was supposed to go to the New Line party but in the end he refused because he wanted to stay with the fans. Bless.

Many thanks to janejanejane for posting this wonderful LF&CC report here by Annabelle, a Lij fan who met him for the first time at this event - and thanks to Annabelle for sharing your great experience with us.

Finally - apparently we may one day get LOTR in 3-D - and not just at IMAX cinemas. From an Empire interview with James Cameron:

Added good news for film fans is that a process called dimensionalisation enables classics to be re-released in 3-D, starting with The Nightmare Before Christmas in December. "Peter Jackson is a 3-D freak like me and he's been experimenting with footage from King Kong. He and I also talked about the feasibility of doing the three LOTR films" revealed Cameron.

Mmmmm .... Frodo in 3-D :)

You saw spoilers from the new LotR DVD's? Cool! Did it look like anything to get excited about, at the end of the day? I am guessing I'll get them, no matter what, just because. *hopeless*

Well, I'm certainly getting excited about them!! The bits they showed us went by so quickly that it was difficult to take it all in, but yes, I'd say they're worth getting excited about:) I'm so relieved they're finally being released. When the first one was shown in NZ some time ago, it was suggested that because of some legal issues it may not be possible for them to go on general release. So glad that was wrong!! Not long for you to wait now:) A bit longer for me:(

Considering the effect Frodo has on me, I think I might spontaneously combust if I saw him in 3-D :D

I thought they were going to save the gag reel for the big boxed version, but perhaps they'll include some bits from it - hope so:) That's sad that you won't get them over there - you could probably order them from Amazon in the US or UK, but I suppose you'd need a multi-region player for that.
