TheBaxter wrote:one other thing: the extended film is so long they had to put it on two dvd's. this new set is two dvd's, and it doesn't say how or if the film is split over two discs or on one disc. if the whole film is on one disc though, they would have had to really squeeze it on there, which means the video quality would be compromised compared to the extended edition version.

TheBaxter wrote:most of the SW bitching is based on HOW the original versions are being released, not because they're being released at all. the fact they can't even bother to do a new transfer, and are sticking everyone with a crappy 10+ year old laserdisc transfer, just shows how much disdain Lucas has for his fans and for the original films.

Never saw this, but I'd be interested - Tom's rather big in the book, and kind of has some import to the proceedings, at least in Fellowship.

I won't...I won't buy them!! Maybe I can find someone to burn me the documentaries. I still feel denied all those mysterious deleted scenes...of course, considering the hideousness of "the stew scene" perhaps they are things best left unwatched.
I don't get it--I know it's just plain greed, but the fans were such an integral part of the experience and success of the LOTR films that you would think Jackson could throw us a bone...release a set like this, but also package up the documentaries (and a blooper reel!) for those of us who already have the extended edition.

Lady Sheridan wrote:I never liked Tom Bombadil and I was glad he was left out. He really added nothing to the overall story. I love just about everything in the LOTR books and wanted to see it all onscreen--except Tom Bombadil!

What about the old cartoon movie:
Frodo of the nine fingers,
And the ring of doooom....
