There are certain films that we all should be very excited to see on Blu-ray. "The Wizard of Oz", "Citizen Kane", "Metropolis", "Casablanca", and "Star Wars" come to mind just to name a few. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is definitely on that list. Many are complaining because this release only features the theatrical editions, as though the theatrical editions are poor films. True, I would love to have the extended editions on blu, and we will eventually. However, that is a far cry from claiming that no one should purchase these. Remember that this series won 17 academy awards - all for the theatrical versions! If you are a film fan, a Tolkien fan, or a Blu-ray fan, you should buy this set of films. Let's stop all the hating on the theatrical cuts. Peace.
