Review of LOTR marthon Part 2 (The Cons) Can't Post

Pirate Okay so here's the bad side:
I wore a Two Towers T shirt with Aragorn on the front, I wore (as always) my One Ring on a chain around my neck and even painted my fingernails green, brown and blue just like the Extended Edition boxes.The problem?
Not one single person remarked about it or anything. I was hoping to run into other Ringers and instead everyone there seemed to just be there because it was someting to do on a Saturday. No one even said "Hey cool movie huh?" on the way to the bathroom.
Disappointed. Very.
Where are all the Ringers in my area people? I wouldn't trade the experience of seeing these beautiful movies on the big screen for anything but what I would trade is the people I saw it with and the people I have toive around.
Where are you fellow Colorado Ringers? Where?

similar experience in CA [In reply to] Can't Post

Much more of a reaction to the one at a time release during the summer.

Plenty of fans [In reply to] Can't Post

don't show it overtly. If I had been in that audience you would not necessarily have known I was a fan. I have never dressed up, and I don't usually talk to people I don't know at a movie, but I would have been just as excited as you.
I wouldn't assume all those people weren't fans.

Fans at movie showings [In reply to] Can't Post

Well that's true and I'm going to admit that it was a good movie crowd in the fact that they were quiet during the shows and always turned their cell phones off and didn't text until afterward. That's a plus.
I just wish I could find someone around here that would show their love. Heart
I will also admit that I could have been more outgoing too and I suppose it was wrong of me to judge others when I myself didn't say anything. Frown I am pretty shy about speaking my thoughts and feelings but what I'm NOT shy about is dressing up or wearing props.
My apologies if I brought any Ringers down and no worries I will just keep looking!
