When it was announced that the “Lord of the Rings” Trilogy was gonna FINALLY be released onto Blu-Ray, many fans were excited. But then, it was announced that only the theatrical editions and the extended editions will be released much later. Well, that already convinced me to NOT buy them, and just wait.
It seems now the other fans are getting upset with this news as well. On the set’s Amazon page fans are already telling people to not buy them.
Thanks to /Film:
“I DO NOT RECOMMEND BUYING THIS PRODUCT/DVD. This product is being created FOR NO OTHER REASON than to dupe people into buying this movie twice…again. Those of us who were huge fans bought the original DVDs of the theatrical releases. THEN the studio FINALLY released the extended editions, even though they could have released both at the same time. Now that Blu Ray has won the High Def battle, the studios are salivating at screwing us all again the same way! Please do not let them get away with holding the extended edition hostage until everyone buys the theatrical versions.”
I have to agree with this person. It makes no sense to buy purchase the films twice. Hell, that’s the main reason why I’m upset about the upcoming extended edition of the new Evangelion. I could understand releasing the extended versions separately when the films were first released, but it doesn’t make sense to do that again. Like this person said, its just to take all your money.
I can’t even watch the theatrical versions of the film anymore. And, not gonna waste my money on a version that I can’t watch.
However, fans are most likely gonna buy these regardless.
