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 HobbitDVD.
I came across this image by Aimo of the Durin boys Thorin Kili, Fili, rocking it hard with the support of Bombur here.
It’s about time The Misty Mountain got a rockin’ treatment!
Those dirty dwarves sure know how to get down and dirty 🙂
My family is in a bit of a crisis mode today while we’re waiting on some news regarding my Dad’s health, so just a quick post to keep my mind off worrying and a question to satisfy my curiosity.
After expressing my apprehension about the 48fps and 3D viewing experience, I was surprised to read in comments(or maybe not so surprised come to think of it…) that many of you have seen The Hobbit multiple times.
I bet a nice percentage of the billions the movie has made in the box office is due to the Armitage fans chasing the Thorin high 🙂
I’m still planning on seeing the movie at least once in the cinema and then throwing the DVD on my present wish list.
Is there a number of times of times you are able to see a movie without feeling you’ve crossed the line?
Would you ever go to a different cinema just so the staff don’t recognise you and brand you a multiple-viewing weirdo?
The reason I ask is NOT because my sister Magzy went a bit crazy with the Twilight saga… *cough*…uhmm…
