A Moment Of Shill

I was looking over some upcoming items on Amazon.com and noticed two interesting releases:

The Lord Of The Rings-- The Motion Picture Trilogy
(Special Extended DVD Edition)
$77.98/12 discs/total time of the actual movies: 682 minutes/
street date 12-14-04

The Ultimate Matrix Collection Limited Edition Collector's Set
The Matrix/Reloaded/Revolutions/Revisited/The Animatrix
$90.04/10 discs/street date 12-7-04

If I didn't already own the SEEs of The Fellowship Of The Ring
and The Two Towers, I would be tempted by The Lord Of The Rings set.
No strand of Aragorn's wig or Gollum's loincloth replica included?
Perhaps it is for the best. This is clearly the superior collection.

The Matrix movies started so well, and then seemed to muddle in the middle. Perhaps if The Wachowski Brothers had written books first, and then had movies made from those, fans could have said, "The films were vastly inferior." Then extra footage would be added on DVD to make up for the deficiency.

Hopefully no one mistakes books for movies, and movies for books in the future...
