Middle Earth 6 Film Collection

mec_lce_glamjpg-e1471955025289-768x472_zpshsv3bfuy

In the past couple of days it has been announced that the biggest ultimate edition of Middle Earth is going to be available. That includes all three Lord of the Rings films and all three of The Hobbit films.

On both Blu Ray and DVD extended and theatrical editions, as well as codes to download the digital versions of all films as well. A truly incredible thing that I would just love, but the price is a bit crazy $799.99! I haven’t currently found anything about the UK release.

Apparently though this is not the ultimate edition Peter Jackson wants us fans to have, he had something else in mind with new footage and special features. Maybe we have to hope that will still happen!

Blogathon: Against the Crowd 2016

fotorcreated_zpsthripxin

I took part in this Blogathon back in 2014 for some reason or another which I am totally unsure of I didn’t take part in 2015. I must apologise for that as I totally love this Blogathon as it shows that everyone is different and don’t love and hate the same things, one of the best things about watching lots and lots of films!

Massive thanks to Wendell @Dell on Movies and KG @KG’s Movie Rants for putting together this fantastic Blogathon!

The rules are simple…
1. Pick one movie that “everyone” loves (the more iconic, the better). That movie must have a score of at least 75% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you hate it.

2. Pick one movie that “everyone” hates (the more notorious, the better). That movie must have a score of less than 35% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you love it.

3. Include the tomato meter scores of both movies.

4. Use one of the banners in this post, or feel free to create your own.

5. Comment on this post, or on KG’s Movie Rants with the two movies you intend on writing on.

6. Publish your post on any day from Monday August 22 through Friday August 26, 2016.

7 Incredible Photos of Sir Ian and Sir Pat!

Firstly I feel I need to apologise that I am posting about Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart again. But I am still feeling very fangirl-ish (and making up new words) for the pair after an incredible few days seeing them live on stage in No Man’s Land and the the stage door meeting (McKellen/Stewart) and not forgetting the Inside View Event.

I thought I had to post with 7 amazing photos of the pair who have the best friendship and bromance going!

Bruce Wayne wants revenge for his parents death and in the process of this we see that his goal changes to trying to save Gotham from the corrupt mobsters who are beginning to run it. A very intensive training programme with the League of Shadows is going to put so many different things in notion for Gotham as well as Bruce Wayne.

Inside View: No Man’s Land

img_0067_zpsoypzrvoo

This year I signed up to become a Friend of the Theatre Royal which means you get discounts for the Theatre tickets, priority booking and other perks. Such as Inside View events, I had no idea about these until getting my first newsletter ahead of the new season going on sale. When I read about them thought it sounded very interesting getting an insight into a show and possible appearance by cast members. As soon as I saw that one was down for No Man’s Land and £2 more expensive than normal I just had to go for it and hope Ian McKellen and/or Patrick Stewart would be involved.
