none of the dvds can compete with a mammoth set like LOTR.  the only thing lacking from the set is the theatrical cut.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I felt compelled to vote for LotR just because there's so much bullshit on it. PDL had more interesting stuff on it, though. Like the Scopitones. Those were cool.

I felt compelled to vote for "Fear and Loathing," because I liked it more than LOTR.

Kudos to LOTR:TTT EE. It deserved to win, for its 139042 hours of content.

Special honorable mention to Casablanca. That was a legendary film finally treated right on DVD. All sorts of fantastic goodies, right down to Carrotblanca. That and Citizen Kane are among the standard-bearers for how to do special editions of "old" films.
