I was grateful for the chance to see the extended version on the big screen where this movie
series was meant to be seen. Blu-ray, which is how the extended version will be released on DVD, is all well and good but it's just not the same as the theater experience.
As far as the extended story itself there was nothing fantastic about the added scenes in this first part of the trilogy. They fleshed things out with a bit more detail and I was interested to see them, but did not add anything significant except maybe a bit more humor. And one brief scene, I remember thinking, was just unnecessary and was better left out. Sometimes it's what you leave out that's important. Take Apocalypse Now Redux, for instance. That included every scene that should have been left on the cutting room floor and it was a piece of crap!
Anyhow, I recommend you go see LOR extended because theater showings will be a rare thing.
