Sazar wait of the extended edition to come out the last two have been significantly more "compleate" than the films making them even more enjoyable! I have a feeling the Jackson may have another crack at the ending for the extended edition as he did get alot of flack for leaving saruman out. Still the movie was groovy as it was and people who get too arsey about the book i always like to remind them of the the sentance included in each film "BASED ON JRR Tolkiens Lord of the Rings" for the only way to perfectly recreate the book would be to film someone filpping the pages monty python style ;) and you read along! :)

I don't care about the dvd... the THEATRICAL version should have at least had some form of closure for saruman and wormtongue... knowing that they are not going to be adding anything to do with the scouring...

All I could say after walking out from the theatre was... "WOW".

I've never really gotten into LOTR at all, I never read the books when I was younger so the movies were all new to me. I'm quite impressed with the movies and I've started reading The Hobbit and then onto the rest of the LOTR books. (The last book I've read was like 15 yrs ago!)

He was going to add a 9mins and some change closure for saruman but he had to cut it for the theatre as well as some other parts ... think i read 1hr 5mins cut total ... as great as it was ALOT less ppl would have gone to see a 4hr 35min movie sadly
:(

*Edit* - he also thought it kinda bad to start the movie on a kinda ending of the 2nd instead of going right into the 3rd (that make sense ... having trouble wording that for some reason :p ). Also the shire stuff will not be making it into the extended DVD version.

Also after what he did w/ LotR I wonder what he's going to do w/ "Kong" that will add something new to a many time told story.

when you separate the movie from the book it was a great movie. But when you change so many things that need to be in the movie you are making a very choppy movie. They talked about the nazgul and gandalf and then they have no part of when gandalf is standing at the gates telling the nazgul you shall not pass...also they left out why Denethor goes crazy in the first place...that part made no sense cause you really don't know why he goes crazy. The movie has to be better in the extended edition or it will be a very dissappointing. if you watched the movies first you will enjoy them like no other movie ever. If you read the books then watch th emovie you can't help it but cut through parts that make no sense...

Also I have learned that the son of Tolkien does not want to have the hobbit made into a movie because he says that a movie would not be able to do the books justice. The only reason why we had a chance to see the LOTR trilogy is because his dad JRR sold the rights for the movies for 15.000 pounds a while back. SO it might be hard for Jackson to get the rights of the movie.

Incorrect. The rights to make the movie are actually already owned by New Line Cinema...the only thing holding back the start of the production is the fact that another company (forget its name) owns the distribution rights.

Eh? What? "his dad JRR sold the rights for the movies for 15.000 pounds a while back" where did you make this up from? A while back? £15,000? ......what's your source? They are owned by Tolkien Enterprises http://www.tolkien-ent.com not exclusively by anyone.

Well thats not quite right, at least accoriding to what i've read. The production rights are currently shared between MGM and New Line Cinema. and they are having a bit of an tiff about who gets to make it and of course get the big bucks

UNited Artists owns the distribution rights...I guess the link that I read from theonering.net had sent me the wrong way for information since from the time that I read it they have posted many more news headlines to clarify it. Some time right after the movie debuted is when I read that Tolkein had sold the rights for 15,000 pounds...that part is true but after researching farther the part about the movie rights I made is inaccurate sorry guys!..
