Back in 2012, Cracked posted this story about Movies That Put Insane Detail Into Stuff You Never Noticed, and we weren’t surprised to see The Lord of the Rings on the list! They focused in on the attention to detail on the armour, down to the chainmail, of heroes and villains alike. But if you’ve seen the behind-the-scenes features on any of the extended editions or any of the books from Weta Workshop, you know there’s plenty more. What are some of your favorite LOTR that almost go unnoticed? (spotted by Middle-earth News reporter Valdis)

Today, our reporter Alice looked back on her blog from exactly a year ago when Peter Jackson announced that the final filming on The Hobbit had begun. How is it possible to seem so long ago but also like it was just yesterday? But unlike last year, we now have only one more movie in the trilogy to wait for!
