The Extra-Special Super-Duper Edition

What's this I hear about a new version of The Lord of the Rings DVDs? They include the original and extended editions, a new documentary, and they're only available for a limited time! Buy now! I loved the books. I loved the movies. We already own both the short and long versions of the movie, and I've watched every special feature, including all the commentary tracks.

However, the re-merchandising has kind of worn out its welcome. Even this diehard fan isn't sure she can really bring herself to get another set. Too bad Netflix isn't stocking the new documentary – I'd get it in a heartbeat!

Repackaging, Remarketing is tough to pass up (Maybe there is one how-to or deleted scene I haven't seen!)

For my super-faves, I must have all versions, silly as that is.

(Now we're still waiting on the trampoline-newt story!)

Yeah, I've watched it all too, we're big fans. Think we'll skip this promo. How many different versions can one have of the same movie? Hmmm... One must ponder, will there be yet more?

In one of the earlier special features, Peter Jackson was mentioning something that "they'd save for the 25th anniversary edition." He may have been joking, but I don't think so!

We have learned our lesson about this with the Star Wars movies -- I think we own every possible version, and I bet there will be yet another enhancement in a few years!
