What can we say about a movie we’ve already reviewed twice? Not much more, except that this newest four-disk DVD release stocks a filmmaking class semester’s worth of information on J.R.R. Tolkien’s world of wizards, elves, and hobbits and on the building of a blockbuster movie. Buy it if you’re interested in the craft or if you’re a geekboy who’ll dress as Gandalf for the opening day of the second film, The Two Towers, can’t live without the extended and additional scenes that were left out of the original 178-minute monster, and you’ve got a hard hobbit to break.
