I've heard that the extended version of Return of the King is currently sitting at a glorious FIVE HOURS LONG By the Force...that's a loooong movie! I mean come on...some of us like to sit down and watch a good movie, and experience sunlight in the same 24 hour span! After hearing so much about Eowyn and Faramir getting together...I was disappointed that it was just mentioned in passing. Just another of those things about Jackson cutting the film down (for the sake of running time) that he already knows will be put back in EE DVD. Among the additions are some Saruman, as well as the Houses of Healing When I heard the Christopher Lee was cut out entirely from the theatrical version, I was so upset...because it seemed disrespectful to such a well known actor (and huge fan of LOTR) to be cut out all together. What would happen IF Christopher Lee died (Force forbid) before ROTK EE DVD is released? It would be sad to think audiences never got to see his last performance. I mean people still get all sentimental about Richard Harris in Harry Potter.
