They're expanding the first one? Like how much are they doing this by? 20 minutes? Or like another whole hour, or heck, even more? If that's the case. Sweet!

Hmm, not much, but I guess they can fit a lot of information in the 30 minutes, or half hour, whichever you said it was.

What, like the little song-and-dance number they do in the cartoon after smoking "pipeweed"?

I would like to see Tom Bombadil and Goldberry in the extra scenes, but I don't think they'll add that. Too bad.

I really missed Tom Bombadil and wife. While sooooo many folks look on the whole episode as not fitting or not being necessar, I thought it was a bright spot in the dark story of LOTR. Unfortunately, they had to make cuts/changes, and I appreciate what they did to make the movie as good as it was. I look forward to the next 2 installments, faulty though they may be. Good entertainment is sooooo hard to find, and at least the 3hour movie is worth the $9-$10 US per ticket.

Cheers!
Trajan

Oh, I was hoping for some car chases, tense shootouts in dockside warehouses and exploding helicopters. A Hollywood film just isn't a Hollywood film without car chases, tense shootouts in dockside warehouses and exploding helicopters.

And I still can't figure out which one of those hobbits was the tough, living-on-the-edge loner cop with a personal vendetta and a problem with authority. I thought it might be Merry, but I'm not sure. Can anyone help?

I bet that we will see Kheled-zâram, the sea in which Durins Crown rests. You can see that they are walking toward a sea after Moria and look into it but it is cut before they can speak a word.
