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.


Alright, I'll give you that. LOTR is definitely a better DVD, hands down. I guess I really voted for TRT in this category just because I love the movie.

And I'm not necessarily holding a grudge with LOTR, but with the entire genre more like...the whole fantasy epic thing. I'm not into a lot of that stuff. There are some exceptions I guess...but not many.

Best DVD: THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS  (The Criterion Collection)



WHAT?!  this was the most disappointing dvd ever.  i really thought criterion would load the disc up with more features.  RUSHMORE had a shit load of features!  LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (extended edition) was a far superior dvd.

Right, that's all I'm sayin' here.  This DVD is good for people who are interested in filmmaking... even if you don't like the fucking movie, it goes through everything, from adaptation to post-production even through to the DVD production.  Watching the extras on this DVD, you get to know what kind of pains are put into making a film... especially this one.

I think it had to do with anti-LOR bullshit as well as people not understanding the category is about the DVD, not the film.

LOTR is an exception...the DVD is phenomenal, so is the movie. R.Tenenbaums was a really good movie, but the DVD was not even as good as the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back DVD...the idea of putting the movie together with the stuff Jackson originally left out i'm sure was a painstaking and costly process...the score was redone to flow with the added material...and though the movie would've suffered greatly if it was shown in theaters like this (especially critically), it added so much back to the story, and is a joy to watch in the comfort of your own home.

btw...Fuck Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back

Man, I can't agree more - on all points.

I had actually considered NOT seeing Two Towers in the theater. Having never read any Tolkien, seeing the FotR movie on VHS first and then the SE DVD, I found that the DVD extended version told so much more of the story that I didn't want to see an "edit" of the second one. I wanted to see it all, so I considered just waiting for the Two Towers extended DVD. I do hope they do another DVD set for Two Towers with an extended film. It's just so much better that way.

And oh yeah... Kevin Smith's movies do suck!

Peter Jackson spoke to Aint it cool News and said he's busy doing it with something like 150 new effects shots to be completed for it.  So he doesn't even have time to the trailer for Return of the King yet.

I've watched the Documentary on Digital Grading a few times now, it's all so interesting. The way they desaturate Bormoirs face slightly after he dies.

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.


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


speak for yourself bud.

Wait, why did you quote me? Are you are trying to sway my opinion on LOTR. If you are, let me just tell you...it's a lost cause...so I'm just wondering.
