I've got the extended edition boxed set and have watched it a few times - two and three are much better to me, but mainly because of the extra scenes included in the extended edition, and that they attempted to shoehorn more of Tolkien's own dialog into the script in those scenes. (although usually spoken by the wrong people, but whatever, at least it's in there)

I actually prefer the theatrical release of the first LOTR to the extended edition. In the "Keep it secret, keep it safe" --> "is it secret, is it safe?" part there's just too much going on in the extended edition. The quicker edits of the theatrical release work much better.

I totally agree.

Not sure I've ever seen the extended version of part three. Maybe I'd like that more?

The theatrical versions are basically incomplete, guys. Especially when it comes to TTT and TROTK.

probably better theater fare that way - but as a long time fan of the writing, i'm biased towards more original Tolkien dialog as opposed to better action/congruity whatever.
the movies were all so ridiculously long that sitting in a theater through 3 and a half hours (give or take) for each one seems like a lot of work regardless of the editing.
I figure if i'm devoting that much time to watching that kind of story being told, i'm happiest when i can make direct correlations to the books. it feels more authentic to me that way (and fits in nicely with the entire production being part of an effort to bring as much of the world in the books to the screen in a faithful manner as possible)

Does the extended version of part 3 change all the dialogue to make it not awful and most of the acting to make it less like a video game? Also, talk to me about the roles of giant birds and doe eyes.

I just floated that one right across the plate for you. I'm a bit disappointed, I gotta say. But they can't all be home runs, and don't I fucking know it. I've laid so many eggs around this place that *generic Birdman post*!

Seconded Return of the King. Fairly disappointing after the brilliance of the first 2. It’s pretty unwatchable to me at this point.

The third one is my favorite, but I always turn it off when he says "you bow to no one". That was the proper place to end it, and Jackson was an idiot for failing to do that. May he rot in hell.

That third LotR movie is almost unwatchable.

Blade runner. Both of them. I should love them but I’m totally impervious to them.
Just totally overrated to me.

Agreed on the first one. It's never done anything for me, despite everyone raving about its genius.

The new one, however, I found stunning.

Can’t agree with that. It simply has a lot more to do than either of the other two films and feels compressed when it should feel epic. It is epic but there’s just so many threads going on there’s little room to breathe I think. The extended edition is much better. All the extended editions are for my money.
