And today I threw back to the glory days when the movies were new and wonderful to me. And I did this by watching the appendices of the movies.
So much went into filming the movies...the props, the prosthetics, the costumes, the body doubles, shooting for scale, the miniatures...
It was amazing. Watching that footage made everything new to me, and can't wait to watch the movies again and look for the small details that I never thought to look for before.
If you are a huge LOTR fan, I suggest taking the time to watch at least some of appendices to the movies. I promise you won't regret it.
