Post I will be...an LOTR Nerd

I have yesterday bought both LOTR DVD's....EXTENDED EDITIONS. Uhm, anyways, I bought Fellowship of the Ring, and The Two Towers. Im really excited to watch TTT, cuz I never saw it before...but, I have some bad news. I was watching FOTR and I got to the part where that Grim Reaper looking guy was looking over the tree stump. (I hope you know what I mean.) Well, anyways, the movie started to freeze, and act weird. I took the DVD outta my XBox, and noticed A HELL OF A LOT of deep scratches on the bottom of the disc. I dont know if the disc already was like that (I think it was), or if my XBox did that. I'm going to exchange it tomorrow, and I hope it was just the disc...because if it happens again, it means my XBox is defective, and I dont want that to be so...

Yeah, I bought the EEs as soon as they came out...sucks that your Xbox might be having problems though.

Why don't you test out the Xbox by playing some terrible show on it like Hacker. Or something. That was hard to write, the show was so bad. They didn't even get the title of the movie right...

Take the DVD back and complain, get a refund or a new one.

If your Xbox did it, however, take *that* back and complain.

How the hell could an X Box, or any other CD/DVD player for that matter scratch the media? Sounds to me like you either accidentally scratched it, or it came like that.

The thingy that reads DVD´s/Cd´s is a * quotes with fingers * "Laser" * unquotes * which is a device that doesnt harm your discs. Seems to me it either got scratched before you bought it or due to some mishandling done by you. Either way you should try to exchange it.

What could have happened is that you put 2 discs in at once. I've done that before.

Or the Xbox could be damaged in some way.

But the best thing to do is to blame it on the shop. Persuade them to give you a refund AND repair your disks. I've managed that before.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Fellowship was always my favourite book-wise, and it certainly is film-wise too.

I always thought TTT was the worst of the films, IMO. FOTR and ROTK are much better...

No, your Xbox didnt' do it as you've figured out by now Acrylic. The only way that would happen is if there were a rock or other hard item INSIDE that the CD was spinning over.

My brothers xbox hasn't scratched any of his dvd's.

LOTR nerd? When ROTK comes out on the extended edition, I plan on sitting back and watching all three in one day. I hope I can do it.

I Have both EEs. I must admit I want to be a LOTR nerd of sorts. I have just started reading FOTR and I have to admit, Tolkien's style does take some getting used to, and I'm saying that as a really avid reader...I love to read about everything from Ottoman(Turkish) History to Emily Dickinson and I have to admit, Tolkien was definitely in his own 'zone'............... I am looking forward to getting stuck into them though !

^what he said























Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

The only reason a snot-box has better graphics is because it came out after PS2. PS2 did well for its release era.

Dude, I have a DVD BURNER.

But, I don't have a normal DVD player. I have an XBox and a PS2. My PS2 used to be my DVD Player, but since I got the XBox, I found out it has better quality.

The only reason the XBOX has better graphics than my Pong arcade machine is because the XBOX came out after it.

Also, I don't think there's really any major change in quality using PS2 or XBOX for DVDs.
