Well...they show her poking the sword in the head and him melting but then they cut away to something else.

Am I missing something?  Isn't that how it happened in the original release?

Yeah but then there was a big explosion deal that lit up the sky which sort of signalled the turning point of the battle

Oh.  Don't remember the sky lighting up, but it's been awhile since I've watched the original.

We watched this over Christmas-time, and I thought something seemed different at that part as well.  I couldn't place it for sure either, since we hadn't seen the theatrical version for a little while.  All in all though, it was good, I always look forward to the extended editions and squeezing a little bit more out of the LOTR franchise...at least until the Hobbit gets made ;).  Missed not having a new one to go to this past December :).

Perhaps I'm confusing myself on this one (I did the same thing with the ANH DVD) and I'm crossing scenes up with the light shooting to the sky when they leave Minus Morgul

I still think the battle is messed up though editing wise...showing the Houses of Healing stuff before Pippin finds Merry is dumb (since Merry needs to be in the HoH too)

OK, now that Scott's officially confused as to the Witch King scene, can someone who has both versions (theatrical and EE) pop them in and tell us if there's a difference or not?

Or is there a good LOTR site that lists all the EE differences?

BTW, I ordered my loose EE boxset case a couple weeks ago, so hopefully that shows up in the next month or so, so I can have the "complete" boxset.  Anyone else order that thing for $3?  Pretty reasonable deal, I think.

What did you order for $3?

I'm trying to save up for the 12 disc set...

Just the empty slipcase box thing, to house the 3 EE's (and turn them into a "boxset").  It's the same thing as the now available boxset at retail, but just for all of us who have all three of the EE's already (but not the box).

Get it?

You can order the EE Slip Case cover through NewLineShop.com here:

Its free except for the $3 shipping charge

Thanks can be directed to me and I'll pass them along to the great unknown

Got it.

I still need the dvd's... If they start offering one that comes with the dvd's for $3, will you let me know?  >:(

(that's for participating in the slipcase discussion without owning the EEs, and even moreso for not having the EEs in the first place!)

On the $3 slipcase, there's one catch.  Gotta have a credit card (no debits it says) which sucks for those without.  And one per household...  I had a hell of a time getting one for my brother.  Darn site gave me fits.

Got my ROTK DVD for Christmas as well...  So anyway, I haven't watched it yet, 'cause I want to have an EE marathon viewing party with myself - all 3 EE's in a row.  Yes, I'm perfectly capable of planting myself on the coach for about 12 straight hours!   ;)

So, that was FUN!  Did the 11.5 hour marathon on Saturday night/morning, from 6:15pm to about 5:30am.  Took a couple lightning quick pisses along the way, and skipped the end credits of the first two (of course), but other than that, I made it all the way straight through them!  Very cool seeing them all together like that, as if they were all one continuous movie.

Only downfall is that the "superhero" status of the heroes is even more pronounced, since you're seeing Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli kill hundreds and hundreds of bad guys with barely a scratch - in battle after battle after battle.  No idea what Boromir's problem was...   ::)

So, has anyone else watched them all the way through like that?  I think Beth came close, since she went to the Trilogy Tuesday for the ROTK's theatrical release, but technically she came up a little short on ROTK by 50 minutes, since it wasn't the EE.   ;)

Anyway, highly recommended for you Super Couch Potatoes out there!

Definitely more fun than Tidal Pools, that's for sure...  (on the off chance someone here may have been doing that instead)   :P

You don't need a credit card...if you buy the ROTK EE you get a booklet inside to order the case.   I sent a cheque for $3 as payment.
