i already bought the extended versions of LOTR: fellowship and two towers.i will be getting return of the king extended version soon (the boxed set i got only has the theater version of ROTK). watching this film, i cant believe the setmen and crew are soo cuckoo. filming for 16months, the logistics is a nightmare, and the continuity of props hell! i salute their production artdept crew! the scope and breadth of the filming is indeed a gargantuan task and the art department had been more than capable and id love to work with these people just to experience the disclipline and their dedication plus acquire their work ethics.
