God forbid you buy one of these King Kong DVDs...Seriously, I've got a warehouse full of them. C'mon...free delivery? Who can say no to free delivery? C'mon!
Well, now, I didn't say I adored you, Pete, just these movies.
Somehow, I imagine him and George Lucas on the phone late and night, giggling to each other: "...and then, I'll take the whole Greedo shooting first thing back out, and sell it again Bwa!"
Ferrett wouldn't let me buy those. I still whimper when I see them in the store, but he insists we hold the line.
This is a battle you must win, Gini. I bought the original HT on DVD, and I forgot how utterly perfect they were. Having them on a more-or-less permanant media like DVD is well worth the expense.
We bought the box set SEs last year, and Ferrett is protesting against the poor sound quality (only stereo) of this release. I am losing the battle thusfar.
I originally protested the 2.0 audio release, but honestly, it didn't bother me when I watched the movie. Just have your receiver process it in virtual surround and it's all good.
Watching the pristine original version of the story far outweighs any negatives from the DD2.0 soundtrack.
You must convince my husband. I am certainly adding them to my Christmas list.
Just don't be taken in by the 2010 super-special ultra-plus-extended edition, with the only thing you haven't already seen being a specially shot Tom Bombadil scene. Even the most hardcore of fans has to draw the line somewhere. :)
I am thinking Peter and George must use the same PR company.
If they do, it's obvious Pete came later, after they learned from their mistakes with George.
"Okay, utterly fucking with the story and continuity on the fifth re-release? Bad idea..."
Yes, it has a lot of stuff we haven't seen before. In fact, there is very little overlap. It's much more like a home movie, shot without narration, and it's most amusing to see where the crew actually got irritated with the documentary crew for always being there.
Oh! Are these the 'production diaries' for LOTR like those that they shot for King Kong? I knew that they pulled the production diaries off the Kongisking
website for subsequent DVD release, and heard rumor that something similar was being done for LOTR.
If so, they would be amusing, though not sufficiently so for me to justify purchasing the DVDs again. (I held out for the Special Edition box set, once I saw the Special Edition of FOTR.)
Yes, that's what it is. You may be able to wangle a loan from me....
I have been listening to the LOTR soundtrack on my borrowed iPod all week and I am dying to watch the trilogy again. Such happiness.
I keep them at work - great background music.
How many re-re-re-re-re-re-releases will it take before you can't take it anymore? :-)
Darth Plaid has almost reached that point for me.
I don't have the most recent release of the Holy Trilogy, but only because Ferrett won't let me.
I am pathetic.
ha we thought we were so kewl... one of our friends...way back when had the original trilogy on laser disk (remember those, they looked kinda like a record thingy)...and we pirated them onto DVD the first chance we got...
AND NOW HE COMES OUT WITH THE FIRST TRILOGY ON DVD?>???? WTF????? But of course, we are suckers and will need to buy them.... grin...just for the extras you know....
