    Wow 50 mins extra. That makes it like what? 4,5 hours?

    I sure hope they put in more battle scenes, cause man there sure weren't enough. Like that one time the good guys were winning, and then the bad guys got reinforcements and then starting winning and it looked like the good guys were doomed but then they get reinforcements and killed the head goon of the bad guys and barely won. I think I only saw that about 5 times in the trilogy, maybe they can fit that in there one more time. Seriously though I really liked the movies but by the end of the last one I was getting pretty sick of the piles of dead orcs.

    Worst movie to win the Oscar for Best Picture since Titanic.

    And yet I'll still buy this.

    I liked Gladiator, but better than ROTK? You gotta be kidding me.

    My condiments exactly.

    Glad they stuck in the bit about the palantir.

    Fellowship was the by far the best of the three movies. ROTK was bloated with way too much cheese and way too long. Jackson seemed to forget how to edit (both un-needed content and to make the story flow better in parts).

    And as everybody knows it didn't win for ROTK but for the trilogy as a whole.

    Worse than A Beautiful Mind?

    Yes. When Sean Astin is the best actor in the movie then it has some problems.

    I didn't like A Beautiful Mind all that much, but I did enjoy the acting in it.

    There's no way I don't get this, so much was left out of the theatre version.

    Does the extra 50 minutes include the scouring of the shire or is that left out again?

    My understanding is that they never filmed that. Sad, as it was an important part of the book (and of Tolkien's world view)

    Never filmed it, from what I understand.

    Well, I guess they showed some of the Shire's problems in Fellowship when Frodo looked in Galadriel's mirror. But my understanding is that they never actually filmed the Scouring.

    On the Fellowship DVD, that was what the Peter Jackson said, although I guess the idea was that the badguys never actually get to the Shire, the scene was a scene of what might have been had Frodo not gone on with his quest.
