It is true. I have officially seen all 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Holy cow - those are LONG movies!! Especially the last one - it just kept going and going. I found the last half hour unnecessary but I guess I can truly sleep now without a doubt in my mind that everyone ended up happy in those movies. Overall they were really good and I am glad I finally saw them, so now when people reference those movies I will have some idea of what they are talking about (for example the scene in 17 again with the principal and friend is so much funnier to me now!) Maybe sometime in the future I will watch the extended editions of these movies, but for now I enjoyed myself and can mark one thing off my "bucket list!"
