I might rent these, but I'll definitely wait for the EEs before buying them.

So there was talk before about changing Gollum in FOTR to match TTT and ROTK in the next release. I assume that will occur for this Bluray release.
I didn't realize that Gollum was different.

Would you believe I am a huge fan of these movies but have never seen the extended editions? Maybe I'm not as huge a fan as I think.

What basically happened was I couldn't wait for the EEs so I bought the theatricals as soon as they were available. Then I couldn't justify the extra expense for the EEs.

This time around I may actually wait for the EEs.
Do so, only version I watch these days.

Oh and yeah, waiting for EEs. But I don't have a BD player yet anyways.

Wow. Total double dip. Hell, the original DVDs had the triple dip with the "new bonus features" released after the EEs.

I'm waiting for them to restore the cut endings to ROTK. That'd probably be the only reason why I'd pick it up otherwise.
I'd like to see Sauron reintegrated into the Battle of the Black Gate, as in the script and original cut. The films (unlike the books) feel somewhat anticlimactic without Aragorn directly confronting the Dark Lord in some way.

Er, I mean, this.
When I make the switch to Bluray, I'll pick up this set. I enjoyed the EEs the one time I watched them, but other than a few wonderful additions in Fellowship, I found most of the additional material superfluous in the films. Granted, I'm not an enormous Tolkien guy and I've only read the books once, but the movies are some of the best cinema ever. For me the theatrical additions are just fine.

Yeah. I think I can wait a little while longer.

I wouldn't. Sauron isn't meant to be that kind of villain by the end of the Third Age. His physical form was destroyed thousands of years before.

Aragorn's climactic confrontation with Sauron was supposed to have come during the scene where he reclaimed the Palantir and revealed himself to Sauron, along with the reforged Anduril. But then that ended up with Aragorn losing anyway.

Well, there are things they could tweak. They joked about altering Gollum in the first movie because he's using the pre-Two Towers model (one they changed to resemble Serkis more closely), and of course we did see a scene from the Hobbit in The Fellowship - who knows if that'll be whoever gets the role in the new film now?

Shades of Hayden Christensen in ROTJ, granted, but it's an interesting thought to consider.

Me? I probably should rewatch the trilogy. Been years, but love it to death, I really do.

Happy with my standard version EE dvds. No reason to repurchase them on bluray.

Gollum tells Frodo that that there are only four fingers on the Black Hand. Ie he has a physical body again.

Re: LOTR Trilogy (theatrical version) on Blu-ray in 2010

You know, I really enjoyed the Theatrical versions, as well as the EE versions (got them all on DVD). Sometimes I prefer the Theatrical, especially when showing them to people who've never seen the movies before (yes, there are such people ). But they're a bit shorter and tighter, and some of the special features are really more "for the fans" than anything else.

I'm sure I'll end up with both versions.

Honestly, I think FOTR was the only one of the three that didn't need any extra scenes. Both TTT and ROTK needed some of the additions, but I think they made a few poor choices, such as Theodred's funeral and the avalanche of skulls in the Paths of the Dead.
