I couldn't find a thread with such a topic, and I can't imagine that any other release qualifies as much as this one. As a fan of the movie, I am overjoyed with the specs of the August release, which include the wonderful theatrical version in addition to a considerable amount of extra features. All of this at a very fan friendly price. As a great fan of the movie, I am ecstatic about the November releases. Not only are we treated to an extended version of the film with DTS soundtracks, but we are given an entirely new stable of extras including multiple commentary tracks and the optional inclusion of the Nat'l geographic documentary disc. I am very pleased with the way that you have handled this release. You have provided an ideal initial release that fits the entire movie on one disc, which was a real sticking point for some fans concerned about that factor. You also avoided making this a 'bare bones' release, so there are a number of fans who will be happy with this release by itself. By offering the extended versions on two discs, many are very happy that they will have a DTS track as well as multiple commentaries, which was a concern with the single disc approach. Avoiding the reuse of extras is also very commendable and will undoubtedly give those of us planning on dual purchases a real sense of value for each release. In addition, you have been very forthright about your release plans, which should be considered the model for all DVD release studios. I believe that all involved, from Peter Jackson, WETA, and New Line deserve the greatest compliments on how they have handled this instant classic. This will truly be a new high watermark for DVD releases, and I anxiously await both August and November.
