Extended edition. While the Fellowship extended *almost* felt like too much of a good thing, I fully understood the allure of the length and indulgence here. I love every single addition. I feel the weight and struggle of Frodo and Sam's journey more. I feel the tragedy of Gollum. (Also his emergence as a main player is built up better in Fellowship extended). The Faramir/Boromir/Denethor dynamic is perhaps the best addition? Fleshing out the murky and pride-addled state of the…
Absolutely obsessed with this miniseries. One of my favorite pieces of media ever. Haunting, infuriating, tragic, terrifying, inspiring. It's a singular work.

A Shane Black script I've never seen and it's new on Netflix? HELL YEAH.
Geena Davis, wow. Samuel L. was made to say Shane Black lines.
