That's what I did with the LOTR movies. Once I found out about they were doing extended edition, I just rented the theatrical versions, and then bought the EEs.
Yep, that's what I plan to do.
I'm just gonna wait for all three in one fell swoop. Maybe I'll be able to talk my husband into watching. He said he couldn't get into the book(!) but he loved the LotR films.

Yeah, I got a box set LOTR EE (it was a gift actually), so it makes sense to do the same for the Hobbit to parallel it.

So, about this Extended Edition.

I was a big fan of the LOTR EEs so it was pretty much foreordained that I would go the EE route for The Hobbit.

But I'd be hard pressed to call the AUJ EE a superior cut of the film.

Think Apocalypse Now Redux.


I'm still basically committed to the idea of EEs for this series - I don't even own the theatrical cuts of the LOTR films - but the AUJ EE is by no means the "slam dunk" that the LOTR EEs were.

I generally agree with your thoughts on the EE, such as the scenes that were good additions and the scenes that probably should have been left on the cutting room floor. However...


Overall I do think the AUJ EE is the superior cut of the film, in spite of those. Just like in the LOTR EEs, there were some questionable additions and some that made me think they really should have been in the movie all along.
