Double-dip it may be, but it'd take 30 years and 40 re-releases before I could find something nasty to say about ROTK.

A dazzling, gripping and triumphant resolution to the series, and a certification that motion pictures can fully replicate the depth and scope of the human imagination.

There isn't a film in the trilogy that benefits more from the "Extended Edition" treatment.

[The Extended Edition DVD] is an encyclopedia, a text book, a film school on four discs...

Grandly epic in scale, yet deeply human in emotion, The Return of the King is a fitting capstone to one of modern cinema's greatest gambles.

As with its two predecessors, the 'regular' DVD release is very nice, pretty much equivalent to most 'special edition' DVDs, save for the absence of audio commentary tracks.

Once again: You know that the definitive, extended DVD edition of the film is a few months away, so you're probably buying this edition to whet your whistle until then.
