Woo, my LoTR 4-DVD box set has shipped :) So in the course of a week I will have:
  • Babylon 5--
    • The Gathering
    • Series 1
    • In The Beginning
  • LoTR

Yummy yummy yummy. I ought to work out a way of connecting some decent speakers to my DVD player. Or getting a surround sound system. Or I could just cart them over to Sue's to watch :)

LotR is on 4 DVDs??? Bloody hell what the heck is on those disks!

I take it this version doesn't have the much-missed and rumoured-to-have-been-recorded-for-the-DVD Tom Bombadil/Barrow Downs scene?

If not, I guess it'll be added to the 12-DVD set to be released after the third film.

Well, the extended version of the film itself takes up two DVDs (it has four or five separate audio tracks, i.e. three or four different commentaries).

Then the other two discs are "appendices". "From Book to Vision" and "From Vision to Reality". I haven't had the chance to look at them yet . (I really need to get to work).

Oh, and a couple of book-ends.

Personally, I don't miss the Tom Bombadil section (wasn't the film long enough already?), and the only thing that really comes out of the entire Bombadil/Barrow-Downs episode is the Arnor swords... Would be interesting to see how they meant to do it, but the idea of someone in yellow boots singing a silly song in the film... mmm...

Hi there, found your journal off of the Linux community.

Saw this post of yours, and thought I'd recommend

http://www.hometheaterforum.com

All you'll ever want to know (and more) about HT. Scroll down past the stuff on top, and you'll see a ton of message boards broken down by subject. I'm sure you'll find information on hooking up speakers there :)

I still need to buy the 4-disc set of FotR...
