Movie Reviews

We won't get fooled again...
C. BURNS | Geek City, CA | 08/17/2009

"Some confusion among other reviewers that somehow we're obligated to post a five star recommendation for the movie. This is an incorrect understanding of the review process. If I were reviewing the movie itself it would get a five. This review is for the product, as listed--in other words, I DO NOT RECOMMEND BUYING THIS PRODUCT/DVD. This product is being created FOR NO OTHER REASON than to dupe people into buying this movie twice...again. Those of us who were huge fans bought the original DVDs of the theatrical releases. THEN the studio FINALLY released the extended editions, even though they could have released both at the same time. Now that Blu Ray has won the High Def battle, the studios are salivating at screwing us all again the same way!

Please do not let them get away with pretending that Blu Ray can't hold both versions on one disc--it certainly can! A simple menu option would let you watch the Extended Edition when you have time, or Theatrical Edition when you don't.

Their other argument, that "Peter Jackson is busy working on The Hobbit and will work on Extended Editions later" is 100% total BS. He's ALREADY DONE THE WORK--just copy what he did for the regular DVDs onto a new Blu Ray master!

BOTTOM-LINE: The studios will make whatever argument they think will fly to convince us they can't put both versions on one disc, because they want to double their income on this movie. Which has ALREADY MADE THEM A BILLION DOLLARS. Don't play along--let friends know not to buy ANY LOTR Blu Ray that doesn't have BOTH versions on one disc.

Please do not let them get away with holding the extended edition hostage until everyone buys the theatrical versions. If you agree with my review, you can do your part to exert influence on the studio by doing the following:

Why do you want to rip us off?

"I love LOTR, especially extended versions. This is simply double dipping. It's insulting and distasteful."
Wait for the extended cut

"pure double-dip(x2). i've already bought both reg. dvd versions. now, they want me to buy both blu-ray versions too? no way! the reg extended version looks good enough for me to hold out and wait until new line does it right. this kind of business practice has to stop. hey, LOTR is on TNT in HD almost once a month anyway. that'll keep holding me over....."

"How can you expect fans to watch this movie in the short version after having it in the long. Shameless! Especially when the only reason it is being done is to sell it twice!"
