Just in time for tonight’s final installment in the re-release of Peter Jackson’s (and JRR Tolkien’s) masterpiece, Amazon is running a great deal on the just-released extended edition of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The whole set can be yours for only $69.99, a whopping $50 off the MSRP. While Amazon usually doesn’t charge MSRP, this set has been hovering at around $90 for the last few weeks, so I certainly plan to snap this up.
Get it here.
JRR is and always will be first in my heart and the father of my nerdity. I just came upon this little truffle, and SWEET MOSES is this awesome! Peter Jackson, who was finally brought on to direct the Hobbit films (to be done in 2 installments), has released the first video from inside the set/filming of The Hobbit Part 1.
We are shown mere tastes of what is to come in terms of sets, costumes, Sting, Middle Earth, goblin tunnels, the initial dwarf dinner at Bag End, new and returning cast members from LOTR, and Peter’s sick-awesome accent (which reminds me a lot of these guys – apologies, easily distracted).
Well, enough of my blathering, this video clearly stands on its own hairy feet.
