An extended cut? Really? My biggest complaint about the movie was that it was a theatrical release that already felt like an extended cut. I guess I shouldn't be surprised...
This is my opinion as well. I felt there were a lot of scenes in the theatrical cut that seemed like they should have been left for the extended cut, such as the pointless rock giants scene. I even debated whether to even get the upcoming blu-ray at all. I did pre-order it, but I definitely won't be double-dipping for the EE. If this is what we can expect from the next two, it's no wonder PJ was able to pad this story out to 3 movies.

I can't believe I actually voted B+ for this movie. Of course, that was a result of the just-watched-it high, but retrospect certainly hasn't been kind to the movie, IMO.
