DVD Review: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King Extended Edition

God damn. This has to be the longest timesuck ever. Totalling at about 250 minutes (and that's just the film), this DVD contains 50 minutes of extra scenes. That's 50 minutes, almost an entire hour not found in theatres.

For those of you who weren't patient enough to wait for this delicious DVD, buy it. Now. The extra scenes are more than worth it, and add on top 2 discs of special features. The film itself is excellent, with commentaries from the director, cast, and many others.

There were a few gripes, such as in my copy, at the end of the first DVD there was some choppy playback for some reason. But overall, this DVD belongs in your collection. If you've been collecting all 3 extended editions, this is a no brainer. If you haven't, it still is.

Rating: 8/10
