LOTR Movie Marathon!

Another check off of the Summer Bucket List!

I kind of can't believe I actually did it! I watched all three EXTENDED versions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy :) 
So this week, it has just been me and my dad at home. So, we decided that on Wednesday of this week Dad would stay home from work and I don't have school on Wednesdays. 
We were going to watch all 3 movies straight, in one day. 
We've never done it before. We've done where we watched one a day for three days, but never all in one day.
So, Wednesday morning, I got up early (like 7:30am, which is early for me on a non-school day) and showered and such. Then at around 8:30am, the marathon began!

The box set :) 

And so, it begins...

One down, 2 to go!

2 down, 1 to go!

Ended, at 8:30pm, almost 12 hours exactly!

It was a great day, besides the fact that I was sore from hiking the night before. 

My favorite "meaningful" quote is by far between Sam and Frodo during "The Two Towers". Here it is:

Frodo: I can't do this, Sam. 
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. 
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam? 
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.

So, this is why my Dear Boys Post from yesterday was LOTR style :)
