In his [[White Books]], [[Ian McKellen]] gives his impressions of the extended version of [[The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring]].
My impression was that this cut is superior to the previous one and that it is a pity that there are as yet no plans to show it in the cinema, where managers gulp at the thought of a three and a half hour movie, with no interval and thereby less-remunerative refreshment sales. But perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps it’s the greed of one already sated that makes this extra dish so appetising. At first sitting the original cut may be easier to digest. But this DVD is a must for the devotee.
Wow! I can’t wait to see this. I’ve already got mine on order over at [[Amazon.com]].
