Not sure why people still buy this, especially since the extended version will be out at the end of the year, packing much more punch than this lightweight. And I just need to add that New Line Cinema did a much better job in making sure the DVD books for LOTR’s extended look good alongside each other. So unlike Warner Bros. for the Hobbit.
I guess not everyone would want to watch extended editions. Those people who complain about long running times might be content to buy the theatrical editions rather than the latter 🙂
Can’t wait! Going to be my new nerd fix!
I’m glad they’re making the plain old DVD edition easier to find this time. it was sort of a struggle last time.
As far as wanting the DVD — I’d like to be able to watch it legally a LOT from the sofa in my living room using my good old DVD player and not have to pay $10 every time I do so. I will probably watch this 30x (estimate) before the EE comes out, so this will save me a lot of money and make me happy I am not breaking the law.
Like Servetus, I’ll merrily get my TBOTFA fix from the regular version while waiting eagerly for the extended. I have zero wish to wait until the end of the year to see this movie again — I have a great need to see it over and over that I didn’t have with the first two Hobbit movies.
