It's here.

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

and

his interviews with The Lord of the Rings cast & crew.

Foolish Knight, I read the Articles! He makes a very good point, about losing the individual imagining of Tolkien's world. Although the movies are very good, that is Peter Jackson's opinion of Tolkien's world.Now as I read the books, my visualization really can't help but be influenced by the pictures from the movies. Yes, we have lost something great, but I keep thinking of those who would never read it, how they have now been influenced by it. It is a sort of pro et con battle, that is , in English, for and against.
