The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD + UltraViolet Digital Copy)

I never thought I'd be a fan of digital distribution, but I'm really loving Amazon's pre-DVD releases lately. Almost every movie comes out a few weeks to a month before DVD. It's pretty great.

Should have learned from LOTR. The extended edition is coming "later this year" so I'm waiting.

They are already stretching this out into 3 movies. How much longer could you possibly make it?

Might be true in this case. I do love my extended LOTR boxset so I'm personally going to wait.

Yeah, that's annoying but I'm fine with having the digital version of the standard "short" versions and buying the "super extended director's cut final edition we swear" edition when all three are out.

How on earth can they "extend" this already bloated and extended movie?

I will prolly own this because I'm a huge fan of the source and of what Jackson has done to recreate Middle Earth, but I _still_ want to shoot him for the bloat he's achieved with this movie.

edit: ninja'd.

Is it really almost four hours long?

No, it's almost three hours long. It really didn't feel that long the first time I saw it though. I'd imagine it will the next time though.

I'll watch it once it's free on Netflix.

Considering that the movie will drop another $5 before release, that makes it $40 for both the game and the movie.

Tempting.
