For those fans of the Lord of the Rings films, the wait will soon be over. I just learned that the extended edition of the final film in the trilogy, The Return of the King, will hit the stores December 14. I will admit that since the films have come out, I have become a Lord of the Rings fan. I have yet to read any of the books, although I plan to get to them soon. If you haven’t seen any of the extended editions, I would highly recommend them. They add so much to the story, unlike many extended editions on DVD that seem to be merely director’s edits thrown in, which should have remained on the cutting room floor. Is it too early to ask for Christmas gifts?
