    Both FOTR and TTT are acceptable topics!

    Lord of the Rings rules!
    I agree Rollo! In fact, Fellowship not taking the Best Picture Oscar ends my 11 year streak at predicting the winner. I was absolutely certain it would win right up until Ron Howard was announced as Best Director. Of course, this was the first time in eleven years that I hadn't seen all the major contenders (still haven't seen Beautiful Mind, and for no real reason I might add. Russell Crowe is one of my favorite actors, and I still haven't seen it. Go Figure!). Regardless, I thought LOTR was a lock just based on the popularity factor alone! Kind of like Gladiator which, while one of MY top 3 favorites, was not necessarily the best picture that year, but I predicted would win due to it's overwhelming popularity.

    I often think a movie should win Best Picture and it doesn't. I thought L.A. Confidential should have beat Titanic. It didn't.

    I thought Saving Private Ryan should have beat Shakepeare in Love. It didn't.

    I thought Lord of the Rings should have beat Beautiful Mind. It didn't.

    But the all time biggest upset in my book is 1977...I quote JT.

    Can it be? We've only got a little over three months before TTT hits the big screen? I am so excited for the deluxe DVD set (I'm snagging one with the little statue thingies). I got the regular DVD but all that did was whet my appetite. I wish I had signed up for the fanclub so I could get my name in the DVD credits. Oh well...

    ROLLO!

    I've not heard about this. If you were in the LOTR fan club you get your names in the credits of the extended version??? Oh BOLLOCKS I was gonna join but decided not to !!! DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!!! Oh well...perhaps Star Wars would do something like that, but I doubht everyones names would fit on. There is a fan club in nearly every country and probably all have millions of members. Even if fan club members would be in the credits of a SW film it would probably only be the US fan club, because we all know they get the best stuff and the other fan clubs are forgotten...

    I thought that if you were in the fan club then you were randomnly chosen kinda like a contest, to get your name in their. May be wrong though.

    Nope, if you signed up for the special "gold membership" or whatever it was, you got into the credits for the Extended Cut DVD's. Now the thing is, it wasn't cheap. If I recall correctly it was like $149.99 for to be included on the Fellowship disc, $199.99 for the Fellowship and TTT discs, and $249.99 for all three. You think with prices like that, it wouldn't have been so popular. But the Fan Club Credit sequence runs 17 minutes, and had to have a new music score done for it.
