Just Fellowship of the Ring. The other two films have not been tinkered with in terms of teal.

I was comparing to the DVDs, which they are much better than. Also, as I noted above the EEs have better PQ than the TEs.

the 3 and a half hour versions of each are fine.

those are the movies we saw and fell in love with

i have the theatrical and extended DVDs and only watched the EE once.. don't see the internet nerd fascination with them.


Just picked up the theatrical at target for $15 last week.

y'all can keep the $70 EE

Maybe both of ya should read the thread more carefully - wherein, folks have given several reasons for "owning the theatrical set" (like you just did - uh, did you notice that you were agreeing with someone who completely disagreed with what you were saying?).
Epictetus : "A man should ... be prepared to be sufficient unto himself ..."
Memphis : But far more fortunate are those lucky few who are truly loved.

Isn't that the same as this one:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Lo...Blu-ray/92735/
... except for the cover? Cause I think I picked that one up for about $10-$12.

The other one included DVDs and digital copies. But I am more than happy with the one you linked, got that pretty cheap a while back as well..

Are the current US steels without the bonus DVD? Noticed they're on sale, and I already own the 2-disc BBY ones w/o interior art (so it really doesn't matter for me), but clicked the link to the page for them on this site, and they show as 1-disc releases (the ones on sale). Yet the "slipback" images show them as being 2-disc. Is that just an error on this site?
Wanted:
Warner Bros UK 90th Anniversary slipcovers:
'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 'The Exorcist', 'A Clockwork Orange'
Criterion: 'Chungking Express' Replacement Sleeve Insert OR Digipak, 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases

A little off topic, but for those that might be interested Bottleneck Gallery has a pretty neat set of prints, for all 3 films, by Matt Ferguson. I've ordered form the place before and they are fantastic. If you're interested, order quick, because their items are always super limited.
