I have a little confession to make:
I still don’t own a copy of The Hobbit.
Nope, not even a naughty copy tucked away somewhere on my laptop to tie me over.
When the DVD came out in March I had already decided that I’d wait till
someone bought it for my birthday in November the fancier one with all the extra footage and whatnot was out.
I’m not sure if it’s a smart move, I’ll probably watch the special features once, if that, and I’m hardly a hardcore Tolkien or movie buff to appreciate the goodies Sir PJ throws our way.
Then again, I may be rewarded for my patience by hours of extra Richard/Thorin footage to last me a lifetime.
Yeah, I’m not holding my breath either…
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we got to see Richard’s transformation from the moment he arrives at the costume department (or even sooner, like getting out of bed), to the time he’s ready to start shooting (again, or further, when he’s getting back into bed).
As my extreme Armitage fangirling wishes rarely come true (not one RA-inspired symphony has been written to date!), I think we’ll probably end up pressing the pause button to capture those few glimpses of Richard, and he’ll probably have his back to the camera in most of those.
I was wondering what your tactic was with regards to The Hobbit DVD.
