    ahem...the movie is 2 hours and 59 minutes long, NOT 3 hours. granted your total movie going experience will breech the 3 hour marker(and then some) you should always be wary of the little things :D. Actually I'm only being this critical because I'm jealous!(thats right I'm made of Jeal)

    I'm seeing it at 8:30 on Wednesday night, definatly not opening, but it is the opening day, and thats good enough for me :)

    I got my tickets from fandango last night....I just watched the extended version of the Fellowship of The Ring....*drooool* it is soooo good, such a great movie, and the extended version only makes it better.

    enjoy the movie!(from a friend, whos dad is in the academy and has already seen the movie...."it makes the first one look like silly putty")

    I am going to be there for the midnight showing :D It has been way too long waiting for this. I bet your right there are going to be some serious "fans" there. I can't wait, 2.5 hours to go :( :) :D
  10. the extended version is SO much better. the regular was really awesome (of course), but with the extra stuff, it was even greater, with the gift giving and what not.
    i love how on the end of the vhs they scroll through all the names of the members of the lotr fan club. it took soooooo long. and yes, i watched through the whole thing.

    Yeah only the local theatres here won't accept the free ticket dealy so I'll have to use it later at a bigger name theatre. At any rate, the extended edition totally rocks....it is sooo very cool.
    its soooo cool that its the first DVD ever to come with a map ;)

  19. I'm am impatiently waiting to see this movie, but since I've already waited a year I figure I can wait another week for it to be a little less busy.

    Just got back. I enjoyed it more than the first one. They really built up to the third one. It was a little long, but I got my money's worth.

    Thoughts from the rest of you nerds?
