Thank you. Bought the PotC box set. £5GBP less than Zavvi standard price.
£14.99 is a bargain for one of the best trilogies available...

LOTR is one of the best trilogies. The Hobbit is hopefully one but I'm assuming not, stretched out for commerce, in my opinion. Shame.
Too much padding in LOTR, as much as I enjoy it.
And that's on the theatrical versions. Can you imagine sitting through the extended versions? Insomnia cured.

God knows what The Hobbit will be like in all its 'nine hour total running time glory' then*. Its only a little book

We did all the LOTR extended last Christmas. Fantastic and on Blu-ray, a superb picture.
This year we're doing all the Harry Potters.
Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed LOTR extended editions. The extended portion made the story even more interesting!!
With the extended blu rays is there also an option to watch the theatrical version?

How many times did you nod off though, be honest?
It took me several attempts to get through the theatrical versions. I do like the films, and I understand that they do need to be long, but I don't think I'd ever be able to get through the extended versions, even if I wanted to.
If you go to Zavvi's website and not the outlet shop on ebay, you can get the Toy Story box set for £13.46 delivered if you use the code MB10
Honestly, not even once!
We were quite looking forward to the extended versions. The story became even more engrossing.
Watched all 3 versions thrice so far; just me & my wife the first time, with the in-laws 2nd time, & with my sister & her husband the third time.
My sister's husband has a technique to prevent him from sleeping during long films; he switches English subtitles on!
We do that sometimes, because my wife is Japanese, and she finds it easier to understand what is going on with the subtitles on. Personally, it makes me even more sleepy.
Thanks BB Still waiting to find this for £30...
