Just a quickie for today, but I’ll have a review for the sequel to The Hunger Games over the next few days. If you’ve watched the Lord of the Rings movies, you’ve probably seen that they are indeed very good films. Quality screen-time, one might say. Now, if you haven’t treated yourself to the Extended Editions box-set, consider yourself diminished, for you have not seen the full glory of that which is the Extended Editions!
Each of the films is about four hours long. Some people might say ‘I can’t sit a movie for that long!’ Trust me; you can. These films will suck even those who’ve watched the standard movies and know all of the lines (guilty, I can sit and recite the standard films along to the television, which my family hate), and spit you out twelve hours later wanting to start all over again! There is a lot – a lot – more content, many new scenes and many revised scenes.
Please, please buy yourself the Extended Edition set. I mustadmit I’m watching it right now; I just got to one of my favourite bits of dialogue.
“Frodo Baggins is my name, and this is Samwise Gamgee.”
Can anyone place those lines?
