Big Grin New LOR extended edition DVD

Has anyone seen the new edition with 30 minutes of extra movie footage and stuff? I'm just wondering if it's good stuff? We already have the orignal release, but this new one is 4 discs. Is it worth buying?

Anyone? Anyone?

Sorry about that. I think its worth it, really.

Plus the packaging is cool too....the booklet is a map.

The cast commentary is great, if you have 3 hours to kill.

Normal

So I am just a casual LOTR fan, my hubby is not psycho about it but he likes it more than I do, so he sprung for the extended version. I thought some of the fans out there were crazy, but I'm wondering if the production people were even more crazy after watching some of the disc where they talk about the making of the movie. I mean seriously - making all that chainmale (sp?) by hand? Like hooking each ring together for each and every one? The detail in the armor, just so many different things - unbelievable.

Anyone in the feature wearing a "I'm a citizen of Middle Earth" T-Shirt?

Not that I can remember but I wouldn't doubt it.
I actually wasn't watching all that closely, I was on here while he was playing that disc so I was only half-paying attention. It's just amazing that basically everything seen in the movie was handmade from scratch. Seems like it would be expensive, especially labor costs, but my husband commented that since all 3 movies were made at the same time, they were able to reuse most of the props. I dunno, just seems really over-the-top to me

It was $25 at Best Buy when I got it, it's well worth the money though.

Actually, that's not dedication to duty, that's just reality of chainmaile! That's actually how you have to make it! It's incredibly time-consuming...and the *really* dedicated ones make their own rings, one by one, rather than buying "pre-made" ones. (Though where you actually buy them, I have no idea.)

Can you tell how much I've hung out at the Renaissance Faire?
Interesting stuff....

Aragorn looks particularly nice in chainmaile though....

Interesting comments. Everyone else who has seen this has been appreciative of how much attention was paid to detail. There were no 'cheesy' sets or costumes or props. Everything was authentic...right down to the glasses in the bar. They even went to the set of the shire and grew plants there a year before they started shooting so it would look like people actually lived there.

We aren't talking about run of the mill fantasy books here...we are talking a classic that a huge fanbase, some of whom have been waiting 50 years to see these movies. No halfway measures or just 'make do' will pass the test on these films. It was vital that it look good to please all those fans so it will make money...and evidently all that hard work paid off...big time.

I for one thought they did an excellent job ...and they have spoiled me. Every other set or prop I see in other movies will probably look cheap and tacky in comparison. They have really raised the standards for movie making...

As far as money...New Line has already recouped the cost of making the movies and then some....its all gravy now.
