Wow! I bought the extended edition today and I just finished watching it. It completely blows me away. So many new scenes, so many little but important details are now in the movie. Faramir has been given much more depth and as a result I am much happier with him now than after the theater version. Warning, this might include spoilers! More Ent scenes The hobbits drink from the spring The woods of Faragorn help in the battle of Helmsdeep More details of the background of Faramir So much more, more and more! I urge every LOTR fan to see the extended edition! Simply wonderful stuff!
