Re: Christmas Day NOW Movies

While I have very much enjoyed the theatre releases, I think the longer
director's cuts are the better movies - there is so much depth even to the
movie story (which is simpler than the books) that needs additional
explanation.  For example (I don't think this is a spoiler!), in the Two
Towers after Aragorn gets dragged over the cliff, a horse finds him, wakes
him up and takes him to Helms Deep.  This is not from the book, so being
familiar with Tolkien's work doesn't help.  The scene really doesn't make
sense, but in the extended version an earlier scene shows Aragorn
befriending this horse.  So at least we have a reason for the horse to go
rescue him.

We saw the Return of the King a couple days ago and I really enjoyed it.
All three parts are long, but worth it.  Great story.
