As far as I know, Tom Bombadil was hardly in the novel to begin with - Tolkien put him in at a later stage in the writing.

As much as it would have been nice to have him in the movies, Tom and the...

Release date

Dec 7. is a qualified guess based on the fact that the DVD's usually are being released on Tuesdays - if the release is 'beginning of December', that's the only candidate on that weekday ;)

:) I doubt that anyone will blame you for not having obtained the first two EE versions. Rather, we admire you for your patience! ;)

Sounds like a great idea to watch them over a weekend - but,...

I wish that I sometime could hear this music 'live' But going to London in September for the sake of hearing it seems a bit much :(

I heard ~4:20 for the extended, making it about an hour longer than the theatrical version. If that's true, the 3 EE versions will last over 11 hours in all. Should make for a good, long day of LotR...

Well, I'm not questioning that New Line have their eyes on the money. But there's another (possible) reason that the RotK EE won't come out sooner than November - namely, that it isn't finished yet!...

The giving of the ring of fire to Gandalf is surely mentioned in the appendices of the books - it's even mentioned that Cirdan (or Kirdan, as it's sometime spelled) says to Gandalf something to the...

Mr Essex

Is right! I adore the books just as any 'fan' - but the movies work in their own right!

Hail Essex!

Yeah - you managed to mention things I didn't even had begun to think about! :smokin: As I've stated many times, I love the novel - but that doesn't prevent me from loving the movie equally :)

In a way I'm glad I read the books many times long before the movies came. I've noticed than when reading them now, I'm still having the 'old' pictures in my head. Not that PJ's vision of Middle...

Yes, that was largely what I was referring to when I...

But the mere fact that some of you actually have to go back to the books to 'recall' speaks volumes about how good Jacksons adaption really is!

Actually, I thought (some of) the characters in PJ's movies were more interesting than the ones Tolkien himself describes! That's got nothing to do with Tolkien being a bad writer (I love the books,...

Well, May 25. seems to be the fixed date for RotK-theatrical. But some doubt still remains concerning RotK-EE, it seems. Some says September, others 'around Christmas'. Maybe the truth is that even...

Viggo Mortensen was actually away promoting another movie he's in - & since the promoting is part of the job, one can't really blame him.

But OK - he probably is the most withdrawn of the actors!...

8 disc set? Ugh... I had heard the idea was to send out three 2-disc sets - sort of 'extended edition' soundtrack for each movie. That would have been more manegable.
