    Just thought I'd send you a pretty spectacular video from my country.

    I've bought a large cell-phone,and installed an e-book reader program on it.Maybe you can consider me a (semi)convert in a few months!

    Hope you dodged the extreme winter where you live

    Loved your review and I feel the same way on many points. Lots of things to like but lots that I just shook my head at during the film. I guess the way I feel right now is pretty mixed. I feel like I ordered orange juice and got TANG instead.

    The most surprising thing about the Extended Edition is the tracked score from the Rings films used and the fact that the editing isn't as smooth as the extended editions of the Rings film. It's pretty rough from my estimation.

    Also, Peter Jackson has his own "Jedi Rocks" moment in this extended edition. It's horrific.

    Well, broke my rule and watched the Extended Edition of an Unexpected Journey and it's a big shrug. It's quite clear that adding a third film pretty much killed the effectiveness of the extended cuts for this trilogy. Only parts of the Rivendell sequence are really worthy but they're not missed in the theatrical cut either.

    Still, haven't watched this film once again, it pretty clear that the entire opening of the picture doesn't really work. You effectively have to watch the Rings Trilogy first before the Hobbit trilogy and that's not the sign of a true prequel. Say what you will about Lucas and the Prequels but he had it right to basically make the Prequels as if the Originals never happen so you could watch them chronologically. That should've happened here.

    Thank you for the compliment on my 'theater' sir.
    It really has been a fun experience putting it together.
    Its all CL purchased with the exception of the t.v. which was bought new.
    Its still a work in progress, cuz there's really never too much

    Seeing the Hobbit's color timing does lead credence to the notion that he did it to make that film look closer to the Hobbit films,even if he didn't do the same to Towers and King.

    Honestly, because the theatrical BD and the EE BD are so vastly different in color timing, I think I'm going to stick with the Limited Edition of Fellowship. Because I'm not going EE with the Hobbit trilogy, the only way the opening of the Hobbit works in conjunction with the Rings trilogy/opening of Fellowship is if you use the opening of the theatrical cut of Fellowship. It's the only one that makes logic sense for having Old Bilbo opening the Hobbit film.

    I think I can live with SD for Fellowship. At least the color will be consistent and the damn subtitles won't be tinted green. They'll actually be white, as they were suppose to be.

    Well, got my Limited Edition of Fellowship today. Now comes the hard part...whether I can live with my favorite film of the series being in SD, while the rest of the films will be in HD.

    I just love the fact that I can have a choice with watching part one of Fellowship in it's theatrical form but then switch to the extended cut for part two.

    I did rewatch parts of the EE of Fellowship last night and man, they really darken the crap out of it. It does resemble the Hobbit's color timing but the Hobbit isn't nearly as dark.

    What to do?
