Ok, it's been forever since we last commented upcoming DVD releases, since there are just way too many DVDs coming out nowadays and there are totally different sites that focus on telling you about those. But one DVD definately worth of mentioning is the upcoming Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring DVD.
New Line Cinema revealed their DVD plans yesterday and they're going to roll out four separate versions of the movie. First two, set to hit the shelves in August, are pretty regular releases of the movie with pan&scan and anamorphic widescreen versions. Meanwhile the other two versions, scheduled on November, are more interesting. One is a "regular extended version", a four-disc package with R rating, four hours of special bonus material and 30min longer cut of the movie. Another one is the same version, but bundled with extra stuff like two bookend statuettes, National Geographic's "Beyond The Movie" DVD, etc.

Ok, we oppose MPAA, RIAA and their evil plans to restrict fair use of once sold immaterial such as movies and music, but then again -- good art is always good art, the problem is that supporting it also benefits the forces that try to take away your rights. Dilemma...
