Oh.

Just after learning that, I wiki'd through her profile. Turns out that corny line of hers from the movie, that's also written in the original book although not as a one-liner. How awkward.

If you like the movies the EEs are better versions and add a lot of great scenes. I see the films more as LotR prequels than an adaption of the book, which means length is irrelevant.

I felt the prequels were just so so in the theaters. The original movies were totally amazing in the theaters. I have the extended set but also the non extended set as I never could decide which to keep. But I loved the movies in the theaters. With the prequels, I walked out of each one going, meh. The effects weren't as good. The plot wasn't as good. They ended at points that didn't feel like high points (to be continued should always happen at a high point) and the acting didn't seem all that great. I almost felt like they should have just skipped doing them altogether. The second movie was the best of the three because of Smaug but he was killed five minutes into the last movie. Truthfully, I liked the animated movie far better than the prequels. At least the animated movie was cohesive and was easy to follow.

The $55 is a good price so I'm tempted but I'm 50/50. I want the prequels because you want the story that leads into the main books but that's where I can't decide whether to keep my standard movies or get the prequels. Maybe if the price was $40 it'd be an easier buy for me, like the original extended edition has been to. I got it at $45 a year or two ago. $55 still seems like a lot for movies that weren't as good as the previous trilogy.

Can I have a great day even if I don't set a price tracker? Maybe? Possibly?

Just opened my copy of the set as a Christmas present today and sure enough, it has the same sort of packaging as the Hobbit Extended Trilogy set.

Thank goodness the slimmed down, cheaper Canadian slipcover version shown several pages back isn't as widespread as I feared.

The day has passed, but the greatness of your days depend mostly upon you.

For years I've debated waiting for the grand super duper mega extended set of all six films but the new films simply suck too hard. Finally snapped-up the original US extended package on eBay with the black boxes. It isn't as nice as the extended DVD package and buying nine DVDs with my six BDs seems a farce, especially as I already own them, but I'm looking forward to seeing these masterpieces again.
Faster than a bullet from a gun. Closer to Heaven than to Earth.

2K setup: 65" Panasonic VT65, Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2, Oppo BDP-103 Region-Free, Sonus Faber Venere 2.5 fronts, Jamo E8CEN centre, E800 surrounds and rear surrounds, E8SUB subwoofer, Sony MDR-HW700DS 9.1 headphones, Monster Power HTS-2600, 1TB Mediacentre, 500GB PS4, Cyron RGB LEDs. 50" VT30 and 40GB fat PS3 in the lounge.

4K setup to follow...

I'm so frustrated. I received this set from Amazon and inside The Two Towers box was discs for The Return of The King. Sent it back and got a replacement. Exact same issue with that so sending that back now. I'm in the UK so postage is costly and it'll take weeks for me to receive the replacement.

If you like them less, pay less - by them used. I've gotten BDs in excellent condition.
