Well, there's also the special features to think of, unless you don't watch those or already have them from the DVD releases.

Just looking at Amazon now: both sets would be about $120 total, while the individual theatrical discs are $10 each...

If you don't wait for sales, sure.

I paid $20 for the theatrical and $35 for the extended, so $55 for the whole thing isn't too bad.

Saw all the bonus features when I bought the DVD sets (which will be getting donated very shortly), don't have any particular desire to watch them again. I am interested in those fly-on-the-wall documentaries from Costa Botes, as I've never seen those before, but I get the feeling that'll be a one-time viewing for me as well.

Even waiting for sales, buying the films in the configuration I want would be significantly cheaper than buying both sets, unless they plan on charging some ungodly price for the individual extended editions.

I agree. I'll pick up TTT: EE eventually when the price comes down. I prefer the theatricals for FOTR & ROTK.

The Mouth of Sauron is creepy and cool looking in the extended version.

And some people will be contrarian just for the sake of being contrarian.

I remember when the Fellowship of the Ring came out and there were a few people who claimed that the Ralph Bakshi animated Lord of the Rings was superior to Peter Jackson's effort.

So, I just bought the set today. The digital copies expire today, and I have no use for them. Here's the codes for whoever wants them:

Cheers.

Yep, I bumped this thread on 6/18 mentioning it, and thought about mentioning it again now that we have this new activity. Now I don't have to. :up:

Thanks. Used TTT and ROTK. FOTR didn't work.

Typo for FOTR, sorry. It may be too late to activate but I sent you a PM with the correct code.

I was able to download all three before they expired last night. I haven't seen the films in ages so I'm really looking forward to revisiting them.

Many thanks for posting the codes! :)

I've been watching this set this week, and tonight I made the unpleasant discovery that the first disc of Return of the King skips at around 5:52. Has anyone else experienced a problem with this disc?

Well, I said I wouldn't upgrade my DVDs (any of them!) when I latched onto Blu-ray last month but I found the LOTR-EE set for $6 at a local pawn shop doing a Boxing Week sale. Ummm, yeah, I bit on that one. :p

Now to see what these babies look like in HD!

I have heard that the transfers in HD do expose the occasional dodgy CG shot here and there, and there is a minor color timing controversy on Fellowship
