When was the last time you watched any of the LOTR movies?  Just watched the FOTR:EE and man oh man does that movie kick ass.  They all do but Fellowship may be my favorite of the 3

Watched them all during the fall as I was packing stuff up.  Indeed very good movies.

I watched the EE trilogy sometime Holiday 2004/early 2005 after I got the ROTK EE for that Xmas. Much more powerful when you watch them all in a row. I almost cracked up at several particularly moving points. *sniffle*

I really wanted to pull an all-day marathon over Xmas break this year, but I never got around to it. Maybe over spring break or something.

We were actually going to bust out one of the EEs this weekend, but we ended up running out of time to do that.  You really need a good afternoon (or day) to get it all in.  I watched FOTR and TTT when they were playing on TNT the last couple months, just have to at least watch some of it every time they show it on TV, just like the Star Wars OT.  Great movies.

I always have these movies in my "morale bag" when I go on alert.  If it's particularly quiet, and no good sports to watch, I'll pop one of them in.  I managed to get through 2 and a half of the EE movies on alert once.

I haven't watched the movies since I did the EE marathon around the same time as JediMAC. I really want to do the Marathon again, I just have to find the time.

Same here.  Now that I finally have a Surround Sound system, I need to check out the DTS tracks on these.

I only got a DTS system at Christmas, along with a LCD tv.  The Nazgul flying around the room scared the **** out of me - but only in a good way  ;)

I totally failed to watch them all in a row and only skipped to the bits I thought would look or sound good.  While I was doing that I discovered that the Midgewater Marshes (?) section in FOTR was amazing in DTS with all the bugs buzzing around.  Makes me wonder what other cool stuff I've missed  :-[.

I trust you all know LOTR is comeing out later this year on blu-ray and hi-def DVD. Thats going to be sweet, I hope its the 'ulitimate collection' with all those deleted scenes we never got, and were not on the EE.

Yes, I've often thought that the Lord of the Rings movies just weren't long enough, even in their extended forms.  "What can be done to make them longer?" is a question I've pondered many a time.

Anyone going to be reading this?  I will eventually, but probably not in 2 weeks...(damn you David Copperfield and your 700+ pages!)

Yes, I will be reading this and getting it when it comes out.

As far as the blue rays, IF there is not more extended I will pass and wait for what PJ called the anniversary additions that will have more of the deleted scenes on them.
