    Ohh, thats a shame, the Mouth of Sauron definitely makes me want this dvd. Hes got the bloody, scarred mouth and the demonic voice, oh he will be good.

    Yah that does look wicked, i wonder why he wouldn't ahve used that scene in the original one. I mean after all the whole story is about trying to defeat Sauron, so oyu would think he would at least show the bad guy once.

    They showed the "bad guy" a lot. The Eye of Sauron. Thats all thats left of Saurons spirit until he could get the Ring. The Mouth of Sauron is the Eye's messenger. He is described as a human who was blinded (hence the metal over his face) and his mouth was deformed and broken because of all the evil he spoke from Sauron.

    I cannot wait for this to come out, although I'll have to wait awhile when it comes out anyway since I'm asking for it for Christmas. Mom is nagging me constantly to make a Christmas list.

    Those corporate bastards... They wait until everyone has the 1st release, then they release this, with a little more added to it, so they can make more money. As if they don't have enought money as it is.

    Umm no. Peter Jackson had the idea of doing it. They did it with all 3 movies. He did it for the LotR fans who wanted to see more of the movies. He actually took the idea from lots of emails New Line got saying that they wanted to see missing parts. Dont get so angry about it.

    Why wouldn't they just put all that on the original release? I tell you, they release more than one DvD for a movie, then it's all about the money.

    Because Peter Jackson is a big fan of special edition dvds. He even says it in a commercial for the Fellowship of the Ring EE. Dont get so bent out of shape because he wants to do something special. You dont know everything.

    I never said I knew everything. I just think it's bullshit how they make so many releases about the same movie that they know the fans will buy.
