Today is the release date for Fellowship of the Ring (one of the best movies of the year, imo) on DVD and VHS! Yippee!

I am going to wait for the 3 boxed set with extra footage in 2004

Only 5 1/2 months to go to the Two Towers.

Need Tolkien fix NOW.

Hmm, maybe I will re-read the book for the nth time

Heh... kinda funny since it just hit the dollar theater here this past week. I'll probably go go spend a buck to watch it again to tide myself over until they release the second version of the DVD with the extras.

I was in the local Best Buy yesterday and couldn't keep myself from dropping the $17 for a copy of the DVD. Watched it again today (five hours in total - three hour movie, plus two hours of bonus material). Definitely worth owning - I'd forgotten how dramatic the movie is. Now I want to read all the books again..

At least the next movie isn't too far away (only about four months, not 5 1/2). In December I didn't think I could wait for a whole year, but I think I'll make it after all.

indeed the movie is great. I think i will get a copy now, and get another in November. Best to have all your bases covered, especially when you are not paying to cover them.

The DVD is amazing.

I picked it up at the local WalMart at 12:01am tuesday morning (which I then returned in the afternoon, because I grabbed the fullscreen instead of widescreen version, and got back $5 cause they dropped the price). I have watched it twice now. It is freaking amazing. From both viewings, i didn't notice a compression artifact or any dvd issues. The sound is amazing.

They even included a trailer for the extended version DVD. An extra 30 minutes of footage, which they made a new score for. I can't wait to get it in Nov.

Gah, im going to have like 9 different copies of the LOTR trilogy when this is over. Normal Release, Special Release, and then at the very end, the boxed edition.

I gave in! I was going to wait for the November release - but then I thought 'sod it' - and went and got it.

Sat and watched it in its entirety - 5 hours' worth.

Honestly - do films get any better than this? I'm not even a Tolkien freak! Only ever read the Hobbit - it was the most anticipated film in the history of the universe... and it was better than I had hoped.

I think maybe Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) gets my vote for most impressive performance... just edging out Sir Ian McKellen.

Am I the only person who thought that it sucked?

Go to a strange place with daft names and get threatened and chased by some daft-named buggers to a place with a daft name, where some daft-named bugger will chase and threaten you so you have to run to a daftly named place where another bugger with a daft name will threaten and chase you....
and repeat until your ass is so numb you can't feel a thing.

I mean, I enjoyed the first hour, but then it repeated itself twice over. Dull.

And don't even get me started on the "ending"

I dun know you, but I dun like you.. You DO realize that LoTR is made from a book right?(I actually know someone who didn't know it was a book)

Yeah, I know it's a book. I read the hobbit when I was about 12 and thought it was far too much of a kids book for me. I just don't like fantasy I guess. But I thought for all the rave reviews LoTR was getting I should go see it. Also all my friends were going and if I didn't I would have felt left out of all the conversations about it. I did like the Harry Potter movie, which I didn't think I would, as it's made from a kids book. And I think that star wars is hugely overrated- it's a kids film with dodgy acting. The special effects were good, but effects do not a movie make. Now, Citizen Kane, there's a good movie.

Heh...

Everybody has an opinion...

I liked Harry Potter. And Lord of the Rings.

And Star Wars. I'm a loser for Star Wars. Even if it does have dodgy acting.
