Just watched the LOTR extended edition to my surprise it finished sooner than I expected. There are not as many extras scenes in the movie as I expected. The biggest diffence is the end credits, I've just spent 20 minutes watching the names of people in the LOTR fan club scroll by. At least you can listen to Howard Shore's score in DTS 6.1 if you want to. Overall, the end credits last 27 minutes!!!!!!!!
