Weird. I rewatched Fellowship last night. As much as I enjoyed the Hobbit, FOTR is vastly superior. I enjoyed the evolution of Gandalf. Where he was mostly goofy in Hobbit, he's a little more reserved here, and then a total badass by the time he become Gandalf the White.
The Hobbit is a much more goofy book (in a good way).

I didn't notice any additional bonus scenes, and i have them seen often enough, I'd think
Also no extended scenes?

What are these fan club credits that are mentioned? Did they just add the names of fan club members to the credits? Why would they do that?

They were in the original Extended Editions, after the standard production credits. They did that because that was an enticement to get people to pony up and join the fan club.

If you belonged to the Official Lord of the Rings Fan Club, your name went in the fan credits. Supposedly.

The OLOTRFC was run by Decipher, the RPG company. They produced an official magazine and other collectibles. They had the reputation of taking fans' money and running, but they were apparently overwhelmed and, once in the ditch, were never able to dig themselves out. At the time, I was upset that I only ever received one issue of the magazine, but in retrospect I count myself lucky that I got the wristwatch I ordered from them.

It's true. I never actually signed up myself (never was one for fan clubs), but the owner of a Tolkien message board I used to post at decided to sign up on behalf of everyone there, and we were all represented in the credits under the name of our board.

So they don't account for the extra Blu-ray running time? It's only the frame rate difference that JarodRussell mentioned above, that leads to the longer running time then? No extra added or extended material whatsoever in the Blu-ray release?

Just for any UK posters who might be interested; Asda are currently selling the Extended Edition Blu-Rays for £10 each.

The actor agrees with you. One of the things I heard him say in interviews repeatedly was that the Grey was much more fun to play. The White was "a stick in the mud."
Sir Ian playing Gandalf the White reminded me of some of Toshiro Mifune later roles.

You know, all those American movies like The Challenge or Shadows of the Wolf where he was hired to be the "tough but wise old warrior" type.

I recall that the extended DVD box set absolutely crashed in price after about a year. I picked it up for £14.99 in the end.

I think I am going to give the blu ray box set a few more months to see what happens, I bet it comes down to under £30 as soon as they think they've shifted as many of the individual releases as they can.

Aye, probably. Cheapest I've seen the box set at the moment is just over £43 on Play.com. Amazon want nearly £60 for it. Not sure if I can be bothered waiting though, so I might just go get the individuals for £30 tomorrow.
