The Anti-Lord of the Rings snobbery brought RT on through

I like Lord of the Rings and all, but the extra half-hour doesn't do it any favors.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I'll have to disagree greatly with you there. The additional half hour makes the movie twice as good. You can't steamline a book like that to three hours.

And LOTR had *clears throat* BY FAR the best DVD set put out... ever (with perhaps the exception of Evil Dead: Book of the Dead). The packaging, the extras, the interface--all were just about perfect.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

LOTR didnt win because many of us hate the movie and were unable to give credit where its due.

The Royal Tenenbaums won because Wes Anderson is trendy among artsy movie snobs and LOTR is not.

I think people probably forgot that this category was about the DVD, not the actual film. I don't think I voted for this category because I tried to avoid voting on categories where I didn't know enough about the nominees. I've only seen these movies, and haven't explored most of the dvds. Even though it seems like LOTR had a million bonus features and Tenenbaums didn't have all that many, RT won because people like the movie better.

Thats bad. Better film - debatable.

Better dvd - impossible.

My post was crude, I can accept that, but I just can't see any good reasons for not voting LOTR. The DVD should be beyond the years best and i hate to see it not getting credit because of the mindless grudge of the LOTR bashers who doesn't like the DVD for lame reasons.

Maybe TRT was a better movie but never a better DVD.
