the whole fantasy epic thing. I'm not into a lot of that stuff. There are some exceptions I guess...but not many.
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!
