Since the films are top notch, specially the Extended cuts and this editions have new purpose for the older fans - the (new) documentaries.
I thought the reviews about this edition were accurate about the "needless" new documentary.
Well, even so I bought the R1 Box. And I have to say that I'm glad I did. The documentaries are absolutely for the fans and casual viewers. It gives the feeling how the filmming, production processes went on. It is raw but is soulful - In the studios with the designers, special effects, production people, customs, Peter Jackson behind everything that went on screen (even the Boromir's pocket!!!)... Hilarious stuff, Wow.
This is a special movie. I know that the 4disc SEE DVDs are better, BUT this was a behind the scenes camera, filming what wasn't supposed to be filmed, even if the director Costa Botes was chosen by Peter...
Grab it. Treasure it. Even if you have the SEE DVDs or you love "The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy".
