DO NOT BUY IF YOU LOVE ORIGINAL MOVIES, 30 Aug. 2012
I am really really sad. The extended editions have almost completely ruined all of the movies for me. I bought this thinking it would explain a few things. Boy was I wrong! The only thing you realise is that good editing is very important. If Peter Jackson had released this version then they would have been getting the razzies not the oscars. The extra scenes add nothing and in fact break up the beautiful flow of the orginal movies.The comedy that is put in is truly awful.I must confess I have never read any of the books so do not know the story inside out so I can't comment on what should or should not be left in. Having said that from a movie buff prospective the original movies are beautiful and classic.
