    Title say it all.

    I'll start off and say the extended version of FOTR has my vote.

    Attack of the Clones. I thought Fellowship of the Ring was too long, as-is, and an extra half-hour is snooze-inducing.

    LOTR, who cares how long it is.. it's LOTR!!! I'd be happy with an even longer version that contained more of the stuff they cut from the books.

    Attack Of The Clones. It's got laser guns versus short people taking forever to throw away one unwanted piece of jewelry. [​IMG]
    Besides, FOTR was "just right" at its length; why mess with something that worked so well (and, besides, was a top contender for editing and best picture awards)?

    AOTC. I'm a Star Wars nut, so what else am I gonna say. I liked LOTR, but didn't think it was this flawless masterpiece many did. But I am looking forward to LOTR:EE.

    Hmm, why do I see this breaking down into a franchise war.

    Let's hope not. If any forum can avoid that, this one should be able to.

    I don't know Terrell, we've already seen it in far too many threads to think we're above it.
    I would vote for Lord of the Rings for this reason - the extra scenes would be sourced from the book, which gives us a preview to just how good they can be. Given the number of fans of the book (and the series), I would think that they would be well received when placed into the movie.
    We really don't know (or at least those who haven't seen the spoilers) the content of any scenes added to Attach of the Clones, so there is no telling how valuable they will be. There has been some generally acknowledged problems with a few scenes in AOTC (namely the fireside chat) that open the door that the dialogue for the excised scenes may not be as good as the rest. However, if the additional scenes are largely special effects, I wouldn't doubt they would be impressive.
    But, this is just one man's opinion.

    I was going under the assumption that this was some mythical extended version of AOTC. Has there been an announcement of an extended version or something, or is this an extension of the 'modification' concept applied to The Phantom Menace?

    Here's what I've heard Alex. Don't know if it's true at all. There are 3 scenes that are put back into the film, in addition to the 8 deleted scenes. This could be bogus, but that's what I've heard. I personally would like to see 3-4 scenes put back in the film, because I thought those scenes would have made the film even stronger.

    We'll have to see.

    Close call...but I'm probably more geared up for LotR Extended Version.

    ...although I'll probably end up watching AOTC more.
