I have of course seen all of them and some of my favourite scenes are –
When Bilbao fights the spider. It was so well done. And I loved where he met Smaug. And of course the journey with Gandalf and the dwarves and Throin as they go to claim Erebor.
The Lord of the Rings
Aragorn’s coronation and the Rohirrim showing up at Pelenor fields.
I can’t wait to sit and watch all of these. I know they’re all quite long but all so exciting. I hated having to wait to see the next part as they were released. Now I get to watch them all together.
And one of my lucky readers is in for a treat too. You can win a 6-disc DVD set containing the entire collection of the films.
