notice i have already revealed how i felt about it in the way i asked the question. i try to get the best possible quality a/v copy of the film and everything else is secondary. so why is the extra stuff so important to people? i mean not many watch that material more than once. can ya'll honestly say you watch the behind the scenes stuff for LOTR more than once? i got sick of it the FIRST 36 hours i spent on the entire trilogies' extra stuff. i don't think i wanna' get sucked back into that. i mean, the film is the meat. i try to carve out the fat, doesn't mean i don't enjoy it from time to tmie. my fav. extra is still star wars ep1's "The Beginning". the emotions behind that are awesome.
