Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Yeah, I'm willing to wait and see on this one. Once they don't contradict major storylines I'm willing to accept a bit of latitude.

Re: Looking back at the LotR gamble 20 years on

Actually it was Moriarty from the same site http://legacy.aintitcool.com/node/10098 The lights come up. And I’m sitting in a screening room just off Beverly Blvd. It’s a Wednesday morning. Everything’s back to normal. Only it’s not. Because I’ve seen what I’ve seen now, and there’s no turning back. ...

I remember downloading that overnight. Quicktime player

Cannes was the following year. A 20 min presentation that was never released to public. Harry Knowles of Ain't it Cool News wrote a gushing review.

Re: Looking back at the LotR gamble 20 years on

I was really eagerly following every tidbit of news at the time, checking all the websites and chatrooms daily. Its funny though that its taken 20 years before they started talking about tensions over money. Around the time of the movies and in all the Appendices and interviews, everything was sunsh...
