Woohoo! The postman just delivered a package, I’ve been anxiously waiting for…

It’s the DVD box set of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Special Extended Edition!
12 DVDs containing 35 hours of video!

I wanted to have the DVDs from the moment I heard about the first movie. But I waited… and waited… and waited some more… for the extended versions and the trilogy box.

And then I thought it was a bit expensive, 130 euros or so. So I doubted… and waited… and doubted some more… 🙂

Until Proxis reduced the price, a few weeks ago, to Eur. 69.99! That was it, no more doubts, I just had to have it.

So, now the question is: when am I going to watch all that? I don’t know! Let’s see, if I start right now, I’ll be finished… Saturday morning around 4 am! OK, let’s go! 🙂

BTW, I just noticed that other shops have lowered their prices as well (of course!), but I’m pretty sure Proxis was the first.

It took me a month this time, but yesterday I finally went to see The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The journey has ended.

Wow! What a great movie!
The story by Tolkien is fabulous, of course, with everything he created around it: the maps, the languages (with pronounciation!), the family trees, et cetera. But Peter Jackson also did a fantastic job, directing the movies, and keeping very close to the original story (as far as I can see).

Happy New Year

A very happy New Year to all of you!

I know, I know, I’m a few days late, but I’ve hardly been online in the past two weeks!

My girlfriend and I went to Lyon for a few days, just before Christmas. She has worked there for almost a year, about 8 years ago, so it’s like a second home town to her.

The Two Towers

I’ve been to London between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Went to see the apartment of my brother and his fiancée. They’ve lived in that apartment for about a year or so, but I hadn’t even been there yet!

We went to see The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers. Great movie! Well, at least for my part!
However, my future sister-in-law would’ve walked away if it hadn’t been for us. She didn’t dare to watch the massive fight scenes with all the horrid creatures like Orcs and Uruk-hai. Afterwards she kept saying she couldn’t believe the movie was for 12 years and older…
But, as I said, I thought it was a great movie… Looking forward to part three!
