One and Only Lord of the Rings: Two Towers on DVD Thread

Someone suggested this in one of the other five active threads about the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers DVDs coming out.

So vote for which version you'll buy.

As before, the theatrical and regular extended version. No need to for fancy book marks or playing cards.

As with FOTR, I will be buying both the theatrical and the gift set. Here's hoping the Two Towers EE gift is as cool as the Argonath statues/bookends were. I'm hoping for something like a Gollum statuette or (as suggested on another forum) a swirly palantír "snowglobe".

I don't like the film enough to buy both versions even though I hate buying an inferior DVD (and technically, both of these DVD releases will be inferior, since each is missing what the other has). So, either Theatrical or Overkill/Extended. Tradeoff is No Theatrical Cut vs. Lame Extras.

Got to own both. For the extras and the different versions of the film represented. It's Lord of the Rings, so I don't skimp.

I said both the Theatrical and EE, but I'm assuming there will be another $5 MIR for purchasing both, and that I'll be able to get the theatrical version as a fulfillment from CH for less than $22 (should average out to less than $10 for the whole lot of enrollments and fulfillments).

Oh yes you do aaryn. I have that screener and as many times that I have seen it, It doesn't have any extra's so I will be spending my cash on the big one when it comes out.

Theatrical and EE, same as FOTR and ROTK. Don't need the junk, so no gift set. I should probably make a special section on a shelf eventually for all 18 DVDs and 4 books. Maybe 19 DVDs if I ever pick up the NG disc.

OOPS!! Maybe I should just use my calculator to add this up.

Same as last year.. get the theatrical for "free" by either test driving a Kia or trading in 2 DVDs at EB, and then buy the EE.

I'm going to be patient this time. I bought both the FOTRs - this time I'll probably wait for the 4discs.

I did the same thing, but I will only buy the EE. Borrow or rent the 1st version.

I have the screener too. I hope they make a new transfer for the theatrical version because the bitrate and digital artifacts on the screener is terrible.

Although, I thought that the theatrical version of FOTR was horribly pixelated, too. It's really distracting to see lots of grey blocks in what should be a solid black colour.

The Extended Edition was a MUCH better transfer. Also, noticed that the FOTR theatrical version was also much brighter and washed out overall.

It looks like they re-did the colour timing for the EE. I hope they put as much care in the TTT transfer.

I'll probably just pick up the EE, although the theatrical version is somewhat attractive (Sean Astin's short film seems interesting) this time around.

I will end up getting both the theatrical and gift set. I know it. I'm weak.

I didn't think I'd buy both for FOTR, but I just couldn't help myself. Now I'm really glad I have both, because sometimes I feel like Theatrical, sometimes I feel like Extended.

I'm sure I'll do the same for TTT.

I am definitely getting both the theatrical and extended versions, as I did with FOTR. I like to own the theatrical version, the way the director wanted it, and I like to own the extended special edition. Also the fact that they have different extras is just another reason to buy both.

Just the 4 disk EE. With FOTR I could never watch the theatrical cut again after seeing the EE.

I actually had both DVDs for it as someone bought the theatrical version for me out of the blue, but after seeing the EE I gave the 2-disc version to a friend.
