I have to admit, I have only seen the first of the Lord of the Rings movies, and I thought it was so boring that I didn’t see the second and third ones. In college, my friends in my Shakespearean theatre group also tended to be really big LOTR fans, and I was invited to many a LOTR extended-edition screening, but I stuck to my guns and never attended. Now I know I have to watch them: because today, I saw Mt. Doom.
According to Bob, director Peter Jackson sent members of his crew flying all over NZ, looking for an appropriate mountain to be used as Mt. Doom. I bet when someone saw this one, they said “That’s it!” and called off the search immediately.
