I can't believe I just realized that this thread existed!
Yes, of course I LOVE LOTR! I'm obsessed! (obviously)
I like the movies more than the books, but it's probably because I saw them before I read them, (or because they're just plain awesome!)
When I've actually read the posts in here, I'll have something more productive to say, but I just had to let you know that I'm obsessed with LOTR (have been for like 7 years or so).
Edit: Ok, so, yes of course I have all three in extended editions. I have so many different versions of them. They are the absolute greatest movies ever created. I love them so much.
Yes, of course Sam is the true hero. Frodo is so weak. But Aragorn is also the other hero, more than Frodo. I love Aragorn.
I have an LOTR collection. I used to clip out every single add or article about the movies from ever newpaper we got, and I still have them all. For practically every year after I first saw them I was Arwen for Halloween, and I even have an Evenstar necklace, and an Elven Brooch.
I wear "The One Ring" every day, around my neck *looks at it and starts stroking it* I have so many LOTR trading cards it's ridiculous, but they don't really sell them anymore, so my dream of collecting all of them is starting to fade. I never actually got around to organizing all of them though. I even have special edition cards that were only available for a limited time.
I have so many posters, but they aren't actually all on the walls of my room.
I'm so bummed that I didn't get to go to "Trilogy Tuesday" where they showed all three movies in a row in a theater. (I clipped the add out though). I only got to see ROTK in theaters because I didn't get into them until after TTT came out on VHS.
I've seen the movies at least 20 times. I haven't watched them in a while though. I need to do that.
That's kind of all I can think of at this point. But if that's not proof of obsession, I don't know what is.
