Long, but worth it
26 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently purchased the Directors Cut of this film and it was a well spent $20. The film is great, but this documentary, which is on side B of the disc, really adds that extra something to the viewing of it. Peter Jackosn created this for the Laserdisk version of the film and since he had a lot of time between this movie and the LOTR, he turned what was supposed to be a 1 hour documentary into one that almost lasts 4 hours. But this time does not go wasted. Practically everything anyone would want to know about the movie is in this. From bloopers, deleted scenes, special effects, miniatures, on the set, and really, everything else that made the movie what it was. There's also a great number of interviews with many of the stars of the film as well as Danny Elfman and a whole lot of Peter Jackoson. He actually tells a story in which he saw a ghost and it really seemed freaky and had me sleeping with the TV on that night. Overall, this really was something amazing to watch and complemented the film in a way few documentaries do. If you have the time, and love the movie, watch it. You'll be glad you did.
