The Lord of the Rings: The Eternal Addict
approximately one year ago, dead broke and with more pressing matters in my personal life than cinema-going, i decided that it would not be a big deal if i waited until all three LotR movies came out on DVD and i could watch them at my leisure. that would give me time to reacquaint myself with the books, which i had read only once, when i was 13, and would also give me time to accumulate enough cash to actually buy the DVDs...i dutifully avoided spoilers (mostly in the form of promos and stills, since i did know the story) and even trailers for FotR whenever it was possible to do so.

so what happened? just before Thanksgiving, my sister bought that extended special DVD set. you know, the 4-disc one with loads of commentary and background info. and then sat down to watch it, in the living room, while i was home, knowing full well about my decision not to watch this until i could see all three movies back-to-back.

no points for guessing how long that resolve lasted after she pressed play.

no points for guessing how soon after the movie was over could i be found scouring bookshelves for my LotR books to read them again.

and definitely no points for guessing whether i'm seeing the second installment in the cinema...
