Okay, so, I’ve been thinking about things I am obsessed with, and I automatically go to movies. All of my friends love/hate me for knowing so many movie references because I quote things all the time, depending on the situation of course. At first I was going to go with Harry Potter, but then I went to Pirates of the Caribbean. Then I looked at the one movie in my life that I have actually bought memorabilia from: Lord of the Rings. I have the extended version of all three movies, have read the books, and, as you can see from the picture, bought the One Ring. Yes, I know, I’m THAT person. It’s sad because I continue to watch the special features on the DVD on rainy days, and will probably never get bored with them. You can even catch me still wearing it once in a while. Who knows, maybe I’ll wear it tonight. And yes, I even know how to write my name in elvish.
By the way, I think it’s Claire that said something about the Harry Potter movies on twitter, but I agree with her and the fact that the movies do not do the books justice. Which is why I love Lord of the Rings so much better, because Peter Jackson, in my opinion, is amazing. He did a great job with the LOTR movies. I heard he is also doing the Hobbit as well, but I’m not sure on that one. But I’m simply saying that they should have given PJ the directing job for Harry Potter, he would have actually used things from the book, instead of making stuff up. Professor Groom and I, during the meetings, were talking about how I would sit through a six hour movie, just to see Harry Potter done exactly like the book.
But here is a fun video from LOTR clips, and it even gives us a mash up:
