Re: [mythsoc] Who's buying the DVD?
- Hi John and all. do you happen to know if the extended edition, will include any different audio tracks like a audio description track for the blind? I am not holding my breath since it is a wb release but I thought I would ask all the same. I did hear maybe it was on this list of a big box set coming out in 2015 that would include all of the hobbit movies and all of the lotr movies and that this set would include access features like talking menus and audio description etc but again as I said I am not holding my breath since wb's track record so far as far as access go's is crap at best. but yet when these same movies like the hobbit and Argo come out in places like the UK They include a audio description track for the blind as part of the standard audio track features on the DVD's. from Mich.----- Original Message -----From: John RateliffSent: Sunday, April 28, 2013 3:37 PMSubject: Re: [mythsoc] Who's buying the DVD?
I bought it, of course, the day it went on sale and have now watched it multiple times (five in the theatre, five on dvd). I was particularly impressed by how much is going on in the background of some scenes, such as those at Bag End. There are a lot of little character-building moments with the various dwarves that I didn't take in on a first or second or third viewing, where I was focusing on the main characters in a scene.
All in all, my reaction is pretty much what I expected: I enjoy the scenes I'd liked on the big screen, and didn't like those I hadn't liked. So I don't think having or not having the dvd will have a major impact on anybody's appreciation or otherwise of the film. Luckily, I liked it v. much indeed, so I'm glad to have the chance to re-watch it anytime I feel like.
November comes the extended edition, and December the next installment. Seven (eight) months to go.

- Hi John,> I'm hoping a complete version appears in the extended edition.
I'd say that is about as likely as getting the rest of the riddles in the extended edition. Which is to say, not very likely at all.Doug
