    The full review of the extended edition of The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring is up now at www.dvdfile.com and it sounds spectacular.
    The review is extremely comprehensive and covers pretty much everything included in this mega set.
    P.S. The review does mistakenly list James Horner as the film's composer when it was in fact Howard Shore who composed the films Oscar winning score.
    Can't wait.:b

    Wow, wow, wow, wow.

    Wow.

    I feel for the poor Joe Six Packs who bought the regular release with no idea that this amazing DVD was coming. Everybody who knows I'm into home theater asks me if I have LOTR yet. I always explain that this SE is coming and they look at me weird and typically say "crap, I didn't know that. I just bought it."

    Well, this DVD set looks to be a movie lover's dream, and a LOTR lover's heaven!

    Thank you Peter Jackson. Thank you New Line!

    Composer James Horner composed a few new cues just for this release of the film, and the additional sound effects are adroitly integrated.....
    I also caught that [​IMG]

    What oscars for sound did this win, like mentioned in the review. I think it got sound design, but Black Hawk Down got the best sound oscar.

    Trailers were on the original release, and they said that NO features were repeated, so this comes as no surprise to me. I am not mad, since I have the 2 discer and will get the 4 disc.

    Yeah, funny how some see video improvements and some don't.
    I guess it depends on the person's equip. and critical eyesight.

    I still haven't seen an answer to this ...

    Does anyone know if one or both discs automatically starts playing the movie when inserted? I really hope that the second disc does this, it's not so important that the first disc does this though. However, since there is nothing else on them I seriously hope that they just auto-play.

    Michael, according to Bill Hunt disc 2 strikes up with an immediate menu allowing you to select to continue your audio options (DD, DTS...etc) and audio commentaries.
