An insurmountable amount of extras comes second only to New Line Home Video's stunning visual and audio transfer of Peter Jackson's exhilarating and exhausting epic.

This DVD, with its 35 additional minutes, has the character development I desired. It has the humor I longed for. It's the fantasy film that I craved.

Honestly, what more could you ask for? In addition to getting the extended cut of the film with four commentary tracks and a new DTS ES mix for the film; there's two more discs packed full of documentary material that runs for more than six hours.

What brings all these people together, what yokes their individual creative efforts to the task at hand, is a common love of Tolkien's novel . . .

A project with the kind of visual grandeur on display in this movie demands a lengthy running time, and I will be watching the Extended Edition of "LOTR 1" now that I have it in my hands.
