    Take it in a backpack along with sweets and drinks

    After college (one computing lesson at 9:00) knox and i and hopefully some sane people will be rendezvousing at our local cinema to see the concluding part to the greatest film ever

    College bags must be packed with edibles and drinkables for this epic and also my medication ... at least its dark so i wont get many strange looks when im applying the creme

    I believe The Two Towers was around three hours long. Went to see that at the Cinema and the time just flew by, didn't seem like three hours.

    I've just watched the first two again and getting all primed up for the Final one - can't wait

    perhaps they will release a continual film of around 12 hrs? running straight through one to the next - with only the obvious 'time for feeding and peeing' intermission breaks...how cool would that be!! an entire day in a darkly lit cinema watching the best films back to back, cinemas could do really well out of it too

    afaik they did that a while back with the star wars trilogy when it came out special edition... they will probably do the same thing for LOTR, although at 12 hours, imagine the mess on the floors, the smell of sweat in the cinema, and the possible risk of blood clots in your legs... thinking in that vein (sic), how about playing all of them on a flight from the UK to Australia, would make the economy seats all the more bearable.

    Best way to watch the extended editions is over a weekend.. Watch fellowship Friday night, TT Saturday, etc... With plenty of beer it would be bearable...
