You can rent it! I did last night and finally watched it for the first time. SOOOOO exciting!

I just loved the trees (ents?). They're my favourite. And I hate hate hate them mean, ugly orcs.

Yay for Gandalf the White, and holy but Aragon is dreamy...

Yeah, but the extended Two Towers will be out in a couple of months. I'll wait for that one.

But I do intend to rent it for my parents to see - my mother was quite sick (and she's a big Tolkien fan) most of the time it was in the theatres. When she was finally well enough, we planned to take her to see Two Towers, but it left two days before the days we were going to take her. And they kept freaking Kangaroo Jack! It boggles the mind.

I personally would have until all three have been released because then they will be released as a package with ALL the bells and whistles. (And will be released every few years with even more)

Here's what I heard . . .

The Return of the King is coming out on Nov. 18. For the two weeks before the release they will be showing, in 100 selected markets, the extended versions of FOTR and TTT - FOTR the first week and TTT the second. On the 17th they will start showing the extended FOTR at 4pm then TTT at 8pm leading to the premier of Return of the King at midnight.

Whew, what a bum number.

lima - are you saying you haven't read the books?

I didn't think there WAS anyone who hadn't read the books.

No, I haven't, and I'm really enjoying the movies, maybe more than people who have concrete expectations from having read the books. I know that a lot of people are upset about changes to the story and the addition of the romance and everything, but I just think they're the greatest, most exciting movies. I don't really care about their questionable fidelity to the "real" story.

And I know I'm in the minority too.

Believe me, there are many many people who haven't. Odd, isn't it? I find it difficult to believe myself. They are so much a part of modern culture now.

So how many different versions of these bloated things are they going to release? I'll wait for the "Super-Deluxe A-Number-1" version that has all three movies together including nine thousand hours of additional scenes, with seven million different shots of orcs getting beheaded.

Actually I hope once the series is done they package a neat little two-hour version that encompasses the whole story, without the endless video game combat sequences and awkward love scenes with the excerable Liv Tyler.

Is meant "Two Towers" with probably an extra 45 minutes to an hour of footage that wasn't in the theatrical version - like they did with FOTR.

Most movies, when they do this, the stuff they cut was crap,and could easily have been left out - with FOTR, it was pretty much all stuff that must have killed Peter Jackson to leave on the cutting room floor.

According to the imdb,

"As with the Fellowship of the Ring, Peter Jackson is working on inserting scenes cut from the theatrical version for an Extended Edition DVD planned for release near the end of the year"

The extended version of FOTR came out around the time Two Towers was released, so I would look for the Two Towers extended version around the release time of Return of the King.

Me and a considerable portion of my extended family have already planned our holidays so we can all be off work and see the 11-hour three-movie marathon together (on December 17th, I believe). The family that geeks together...

I envy you, Lima Bean! I wish I could see the movies with a "fresh" eye, which is hard considering I've read the books regularly since I was 11. I'd love to go into Return of the King not knowing how it ends!

Zaphod: TTT Extended Edition is out November 18th.

i won't spoil it for anyone, but i'm very interested to see how they pack all the action of the 3rd book into 3 hours of film. there's about 13 major things that need to happen, plot-wise.
