The extended version of The Return of the King is in stores.
Here are some links to articles written while it was still in theaters.
Those who are fanatical about the film should read this one (just don't stone me after you read it)
and for those who want an in-depth review I recommend the one found here.
Enjoy and, as always, let me know what you think.
Update! Jeffery Overstreet's magnificent article on what we have lost because of the films
his interviews with The Lord of the Rings cast & crew.
