Well we got through all three LOTR extended version DVDs on Saturday and it worked really well seeing them all in a row.
I can highly recommend LOTR fans view the extended version for The Return of the King. There is heaps of extra footage and they make the movie match the books so much better (still no scouring of the shire though).
Oh and the official count of the number of “more than friends” scenes was:
For a grand total of 78. And those getting the DVDs must look for the easter egg which is an interview of Elijiah Wood by one way video conference with Dominic Monaghan (Merry) pretending to be a German reporter. Hilarious.
