Hey there, everybody! :bye2:

In relation with this year's Return of the Rings we plan on organising LotR Movie Marathons. Would you be interested to join us? What would yo prefer to watch - original or extended edition? What time suits you best - weekends/some other day of the week? Should there be a different host for each time zone? Would you like to host the movie marathon for your time zone?
Share your opinion with us! :)

Don't know what RotR is? Want to be part of the organisation? Want to share your ideas for the event? Then click here to visit RotR's Planning&Discussion thread:click here

I'm in for it! And extended version is just fine with me. :) And I think weekends would work best.

I love this idea, and I would definitely choose the extended editions. We could have the movies just go in a continuous loop for several days, as I'm sure we've all seen them multiple times, we can jump in and watch any time we can and not be lost.

Extended, most definitely. To quote Dom in an interview, "It's the only way to get it." And as a busy college freshman, I would definitely prefer weekends! I'm not quite sure how one would go about 'hosting' the marathon in their time zone, but since I moved into my dorm I'm now on US Central Time (back home I'm on EST), so if anyone needs me to host it for those of us also on Central Time, I suppose I could, someone would just need to tell me what to do.

Ok, so maybe we should have two hosts for the movie marathons - one for the US and one for Europe?

That would work better than tryin to find someone for each and every time zone. Timing would be a little off, but there's not much that can be done about that, I'm afraid.

I assume these marathons would be held using the A-U chat? That doesn't work on my computer. :( Should I just download the version of JavaScript it tells me to?

The AU chat is on the actual AU homepage, not the forum.

We plan on running the movie marathons during 3 weekends within the range of the RotR event - one movie per week. The majority of participants chose the extended edition of the LotR trilogy.
The marathons will have two hosts - one for the US, one for Europe. Each host posts a date and a start hour for the movie that will be watched.
