The old movie, not the TV series, I assume?

TV series actually. I didn't pay attention its only about movies. But thanks for the idea, i didn't know there is a movie. Will definitely check it out. Very pity it is not on Netflix , but probably i will find it on some other web streaming sites. Hope the movie is at least 50% as good as the tv series. I think I cried every episode of season 4. The ending was so cruel and a bit sad... How can I wait another year for the next season???

Every few years I'll pop in the Extended Versions of the Lord of the Rings and watch them all.  They really are fantastic movies.  Definitely in my Top 100 (if not my Top 10).

So I have the original trilogy release that has both the theatrical and extended versions. It was before the Blu-ray was released about ten years later. The extended version on the Blu-ray, and now on the 4k edition, both have about 20 minutes more than the original 480p extended version.

Now certainly the original extended version was a tremendous treat and it also wrapped up the story of Saruman who in the theatrical version died off screen. "Remember that awful, nasty guy Saruman, well he's dead." However, the Blu-ray added another 20 minutes to each of the three films. I know that many people can't get enough of Middle Earth, but there is really some padding that could be eliminated. I would like to see the original extended version come out on Blu-ray and 4k, but I'm pretty sure it will never happen.

To give an example of how I watch movies, I'm really digging, this time around, the work of the camera operator and the focus pullers. One day someone should write a book, and criticism, of the work of the camera operator. There's a lot going on there.

Watched Rush again - the movie about the Formula One racers.  Not quite as good as I remembered, but still pretty good.

I would love to watch it. I was very lucky to meet sir Jackie Stewart in person and to have a decent conversation with him) And I was driving him in his car even))) Such a great experience. Do they mention his name in the movie?
