There are even more "never before" seen scenes?!?!?! Anyone have a time machine so I can go 10 years into the future to get the microchip version???



It's not stealing BTW. I'm very happy to spend my $ on LOTR. I don't think they have LOTR on VHS. I only bought the DVDs. And do they even have a fullscreen DVD?

Longer does not necessarily mean better.

Didn't Peter Jackson swear that the theatrical release of the movies would never go beyond 180 minutes for any of the three volumes? Did they just forget or what?

Did he put it in writing and sign it? Otherwise, I'm sure he can do what he's doing now... ;)

Either way, I agree, longer doesn't mean better, but Peter Jackson hasn't disappointed me so far, and I don't expect him to any time in the future. Hence my excitement over this news. :)
