Never thought about that, I was going to do the marathon when I get the EE versions as I havent watched them yet. How much shorter do you think the PAL is to the NTSC (the EE and the non EE) roughly possibly
I did the first on a friday night then 2 and 3 on Saturday afternoon/evening with a mate.
If watching all 3 together I think you need to plan it lasting at least 13 hours (with food/toilet breaks).
Oh and make sure you're well stocked up on munchies and beer, just don't start drinking too soon or you won't have a clue whats going on by the end
thanx for the link smashed - very enlightening. when i read of a 4% increase in playback speed my first thought was that music would sound different to what was intended. i couldnt quite believe this to be the case though as i was sure that i would notice it.
how does ntsc get around this? pal runs at 50fields (25frames/sec) but NTSC does not match 24frames either, running at 60fields (30frames/sec)
yikes. i think that i have opened up a can of worms here, purchasing a dvd won't ever be the same again. now i understand the phrase "ignorance is bliss".
back on subject. i intend to watch all three extended lotrs when i get my 5:1 speakers up and running.
