    What's the purpose of this set? I saw it at Wal Mart it was about 65 bucks.
    That's 21.66 per movie and the new one is only 15.86.

    Any reason to buy these as a set since I have none of them yet, or should I
    buy them separately?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, with the box-set, you get the nice box....

    If buying them seperately is cheaper you can go that route,
    the box set has nothing in the way of added features. Don't
    forget that the first two films have extended versions on DVD
    as well, with extra film footage as well as lots more making-of

    Go for the extended editions. I myself have both the theatrical and
    extended (being the big fan I am)...and both versions are great......but if
    you only want one version...go for the extended....

    Yeah: Soon, and there is one.
    Only thing about this is that I'd like something to watch between now and

    That's *enough* to make me not buy the theatrical.

    Nothing. But:

    a) I'd like to watch it more than once (and not just in one week)

    b) I enjoyed the movie and it will probably get many rescreenings like the
    other two have done so I consider this one a no-brainer

    c) To me $20 isn't all that much to spend on a movie.

    Yes, I can use Netflix but I also like to *own* this title...

    If you are going to watch it mult times...I would buy the theatrical..

    Both the theatrical and extended hold up on there own...both are great
    movies. PPl on here can get pissed off all they want about having 2
    versions come out in the same year....but if I remember correctly, and I
    do....Jackson stated that there would be 2 versions of each movie coming
    out. So it wasnt like a "shadey" thing going on. Buy both (hey, I am just
    helping out Uncle Peter)...enjoy them for what they are (great movies)...and
    be happy

    BTW...Target has it for $15 right now

    me too since I bought the extended versions of the first 2....just thought

    Of COURSE Ethey're going to wait until Xmas time to sell the extended
    versions... they make you slog through all of the drek out there in the summer
    months grinding your fuzzy little Hobbit-Heals into the ground, waiting for a
    "Go"... and then right as everyone is slavvering to spend their hard-earned
    shekals on themselves and the ones they, love, the finger will be pulled from
    the damn and it will be LOTR over-load.

    I wish they wouldn't, but I understand why they are going to do it that way. We
    all do.
