May have to wait until the extended set for both Smaugs comes out - or even the trilogy () ext. set. Personally, I bought the first extended relatively cheaply (I believe), but I'm not buying this. It's an incomplete story and I'm sure a "fuller" version will be released. I can wait, plenty of movies to watch.

I actually own the 3D extended version (Best Buy steelcase). However, I'm not too interested in 3D any longer and I cannot figure out a way for my Oppo to let me watch it in 2D. I wanted to watch the extended versions of the first and second movie before going to see the third film movie next month - and both are $19.95 on Amazon so I am thinking of just springing for both but wondered if perhaps they will drop in price around Black Friday. I am guessing they won't though.

Are you saying the extended version is not going to be the final cut of the movie?

With the new movie just coming out, it's a coin flip. But if I had to guess, I'd agree with you on "not". Sorry to hear about you're having to buy it again. That's why I'm waiting, I'm too poor for all this double & fripple-dipping.

P.S. Have you tried calling Oppo, they're very helpful (just in case it's not handy : 650-961-1118).
P.S.S Sorry, missed it. Probably not, but sometimes there are added features to pry that last buck out of completists.

The Oppo doesn't necessarily need a setting to watch the movie in 2D. Most 3D displays have their own settings via Menu: Menu > Setup >3D Settings > 3D Eyewear ON or OFF.
Display Select [3D Eyewear OFF] to view a 3D movie in 2D.

I double check my JVC again, but I think I had it turned off and still couldn't watch it in 2D.

Doubled checked and the 3D was turned off.

On any rate, I am going to sell my extended 3D Best Buy steelbook version if anyone is interested, PM me. It's in great shape and viewed just once.

Finally watched The Extended version Today/Last Night...
Gotta say, this really sucked...
I love the book, One of my Top 5 all-time favourites.

But damn, too much needlessly changed and added.

I'm getting the sense that extended editions are not worth it in the Hobbit series.

I've only seen the extended editions of The Lord of The Rings trilogy.

I think there's only been comments on the first one, right? But I haven't gone to the Smaug thread, are folks unhappy there?

P.S. Other than that idiot song. the first one was fine.

The Smaug EE is excellent IMO.

Oh. I guess I don't know that.

My plan was to pickup the 3D theatrical releases then probably grab the extended edition trilogy once a good deal shows up for it.

Your senses are wrong, the extended editions of The Hobbit movies are awesome. They're just not really as "substantial" as the LotR movies, but these are just shorter overall anyway.

The bonus materials are still amazing and make the purchase worth it.
But the thing that makes Woody special, is he'll never give up on you... ever. He'll be there for you, no matter what.

The Hobbit Extendeds are vastly superior to the theatricals. Outside of the Saruman bit in RoTK extended, I wouldn't consider viewing the extendeds essential when watching LOTR.

Hmm. That's not what I heard. Especially for Unexpected Journey.

I wonder if they will provide a 3D extended trilogy...

This makes some good points (small spoilers obviously)... http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/12/the...trical-release

I think the Extended Edition was great. It only added like 13 minutes so it doesn't slow it down at all, and adds some vital information.
