Are the New Lord of the Rings LE Worth Buying?

I had planned on double dipping on this one, but I hestitated in the store when I saw the dvd. The packaging feels flimsy and thin so on a psychological level, I didn't up to dumping more money.

Are the documentaries worth the extra money? 60 bucks is a lot of cash for new documentaries, but I really enjoyed all the extras in the extended versions. Also, do you think this dvds may go OOP real soon?

I'm wondering the same thing. I have both the Theatrical and Extended releases for each film. However, I stupidly purchased the first two films (Theatrical) in foolscreen, so I want to get them in widescreen. I think I may end up picking these new sets up.

I do know that the both version are on the same disc (disc 1) It is a double-sided disc. Side 1 contains the first half of each version and side 2 has the conclusion of each version. They do not contain a DTS track. Disc 2 is the extra features. So in my mind, they are not worth it.

LOTR is so grand in cinematic scope that I can't even comprehend how buthered it'd look in fullscreen.

There's a lengthy discussion on this very topic already underway in the 1/Only New LOTR release thread a little farther down this very page.
