Default Lord of the Rings Marathon

Encore has been running a continuous LOTR marathon. What's really been nice is that quite a few deleted scenes have been included, in Return of the King, such as Gandalf's battle with the Witch King. With the inclusion of all the extra scenes, it pushed the movie out to about the 4-hour mark.



It was great to see this epic film again!!

I saw part of this too, Pete. It is an amazing trilogy. I'm glad they showed the expanded editions. I am fortunate to have the expanded trilogy DVD collection which are packed up in boxes until I find an apartment to move in to.
I agree, it was great to see it again.
