ROTK EE appendices

I just finished watching the appendices of ROTK EE and I am sitting here totally in awe. I mean I was aware of the work behind the scenes from the blurbs in the previous two movies, but this was over-the-top amazing. What a piece of work! I decided to watch the last DVD tonight thinking I'd just watch one or two of the pieces and found myself sitting on the couch with my mouth agape for the entire 3 or more hours of documentary - the layer upon layer of complexity in putting that movie together - what a feat on the part of just everyone involved. I was literally in tears at the end. I so wished I could have been part of all that. The premiere in New Zealand - god, what an outpouring of affection. Was there ever a movie that more deserved to win all those academy awards? And Peter Jackson is a god.

I think I'll wander aimlessly about the house for a while - pondering the effect on the world when talented, dedicated people become united by a great vision and produce a fantastic work of art.
