First Return of the King reviews start appearing...

...which are largely pointless. Of course Mr. Bracke at DVDFILE.COM can't help but throw the 'homoeroticism' and 'anti-climactic' cards in there, but surprisingly gives the (likely) very highly-compressed video high marks:


The Digital Bits claim their review will be up at midnight.

As for you, you're either buying this one without a second thought or holding out for December's 4-disc. Or you're still not won over.

it looks great so far. i know alot of you were concerned about a 201 min movie all on one disc, but the picture quality is amazing according to reviews. the bit rate is at around 8.5.

crap you're right I forgot what was coming out that day:

- Bubba Ho-Tep
- Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Complete Sixth Season
- Carry on Laughing
- Duel in the Sun
- Guns of the Magnificent Seven
- Hell in the Pacific
- Junior Bonner
- The Larry Cohen Collection
- The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King
- Northern Exposure - The Complete First Season (why is the MSRP so expensive??)
- Slaughterhouse-Five
- Smiles Of A Summer Night - Criterion Collection
- Stray Dog - Criterion Collection
- Underworld - Extended Edition
- Winds of War
- Wizards

it also doesn't also help that the prior week the Disney Treasure discs also get released - May is turing out to be a very expensive month.
