Just got my notification from Amazon that they’ve shipped my copy of the Platinum Extended Edition of LOTR: Return of the King. Yippee!
I’ve been thinking about having a marathon LOTR party for a while. Get together and serve finger food, and watch all three extended edition DVDs in one day. Wondered how much material that would be, so I added up the running times for the movies. Fellowship Extended Edition — 208 minutes. Two Towers EE — 208 minutes again. Return of the King EE — 250 minutes. And… oh.. this is spooky… it adds up to 666 minutes of running time. 666 … the Number of the Ring?
That’s 11 hours and six minutes. Counting on bathroom breaks, ordering some pizza for supper, and so on… it’s probably a noon to midnight marathon.
