Guest -*Sterling84*- Posted March 1, 2004 Share Posted March 1, 2004 Just felt compelled to somehow congratulate the cast and crew of the Lord of the Rings on a well-deserved evening. Since I don't skulk any movie chatrooms (thats right boys, I'm 100% faithful to the CC Family) I'll do it here.Some of you are undoubtedly sick of all the hub bub and to you, I apologize. Just skip this thread entirely.I'm pretty knee deep in the whole thing myself and just constantly in awe of what was pulled off. Sometimes when something is good and then word gets out and everyone knows its good, its easy to forget how rotten it could have been. I mean, "Dungeons and Dragons" people? Or the live action "Street Fighter". If you've never seen some of the behind the scenes documentaries on the extended DVDs, they are worth the time. Some guys who did nothing but make chain mail for a year straight. Umm, for some Uruk scenes where the music is kind of loud and chanty, they'll write a poem about the scene, then translate it into elvish lyrics, call in some choir and have them sing the lines. All of this when some basic ambient noise might have sufficed. Its nuts. Thats the kind of dedication poured into the whole thing.Anyway, I am really thankful to have lived to see this made. And a geek flick takes Best Picture. Damn.'Bout time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
