Now I've gotten some much needed sleep, I decided to tell you about it.

Last night at about 10:00, me and my brother decided to do a Lord of The Rings marathon, watching the extended editions of the films back to back. It was brilliant, we spent the night watching fantasy and drinking coffee and whisky to keep ourselves awake.

It finished at about 8:00 this morning, when I realised in horror that I had a music exam in 2 hours. I showered, picked up my guitar and went to school. Somehow (I think it may have been the excessive amounts of coffee) I stayed awake and managed to get 13/15 marks for my practical. Not bad.

Have you guys done any film marathons?
#3
no, but I plan on doing all the LOTR THEN Pirates films in one go some time
probably with this girl 'cuse she loves the films just as much as I do
I'm a Fire, and I'll Burn.Burn.Burn.

I did a LOTR one once. Was pretty fun, I was really tired by the end though, just from lying around 9 + hours straight.

LOTR and The Matrix marathons were pretty cool.

But the Red Dwarf one killed me...


That must have been like 30+ Hours...

My freshman year of college we did Star Wars 1-6 when Ep 3 came out on DVD. I slept for like 16 straight hours afterward. I woke up and had no idea what day it was. And everytime someone fell asleep they would be awakened violently. I still sleep with one eye open to this day because of it... when I drifted off halfway through Empire I was blackjacked with a sock stuffed with somethin.. felt like concrete.

I've done LOTR several times, when the extended ROTK came out we did that, and then my roommate and I have watched basically every commentary track and every behind-the-scene feature on all those DVDs.

I couldn't do a LOTR marathon, hell i can't even watch one film without getting bored after 5 minutes.
Adderall? Ritalin? Whatever you gotta do to love LOTR. If I could be a hobbit I so would be.

Also, I just want to state for the record that Lord of the Rings is far superior (ten to twelvefold) to Pirates of the Caribbean.

Oh, also, I'd love a Lost Marathon, all released episodes at the time... It'd be insane

I was like 2 episodes away from completing season 1 when the beer and weed caught up with me and I was out like a light.

I have too much of a life.

I don't have enough money for a life so I invite girls over and watch movies with them at my house, it's cheap and it's usually a good time.

My criteria for liking a girl is based around what movies she likes. If she likes Lord of the Rings, can see the charm of Star Wars, and understands at least 10% of the dialogue in Snatch, she gets to go out with me again!

If i had the time, i would definately do a LotR marathon. Ive seen all of em, and own the extended versions, but all at once would be amaaaazing. I think, if i can rent em all at once, ill also do a Star Wars marathon sometime. Ive seen Ep. 1 and 2 all the way thru, but none of the others. itll be tiring, but worth it.

That long ?
Didn't take THAT long..

42 mins an ep, roughly. around 20-25 eps a season.
I suck with math though.. but 50 hours? .. no way.. i got through it too easily too easily for it to be that long..

I could never do a LOTR marathon. No offense, but I just wouldn't be able to stay awake. I did watch every episode of Scrubs (seasons 1-6) back to back. Now THAT was awesome.
