got it - the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Yes, I picked it up today, watched it and am now awaiting the extended edition (though I keep wondering how much freakin' longer could it get?).

But the thing is ... so far, the extended versions emphasize the characters a bit more than the theatrical versions, where the focus is on action ... and for me, that gets a bit tedious. How many times can you watch an orc get chopped up? Anyway ... I liked it the movie, though I have some reservations. When I think I can at least attempt an articulation of them, I'll post a review.

But for now ... it's the best current DVD out right now. So what are you waitin' for?
