Then there's the TE-vs-EE issue. I've only seen FotR TE twice, once in the initial release and once at the RCMH concert. I don't like it nearly as well as the EE. Actually, that's true of all of them -- I sold or gave away my TE DVDs when the EEs came out.

I was all agog, but burned out pretty quickly. I saw FotR in the theater maybe half a dozen times, and the others less often. I've only watched my copies three or four times. And though I'd read the books about 20 times when the first movie came out, and read them again maybe five times in the next five years, I haven't gone back to them either. Just burned out. It may take a few more years before I can read the books or watch the movies. But when I do, it's definitely the EEs, and not the TEs.
Interesting, we have one camp who has watched them 10-20 times, and another who has watched it over 50 times. Are there really two camps of LOTR fans? A Super-Fan group and an Ultra-Super-Fan group? Interesting....
Or need to get a life :P ...............Just kidding!

I guessed i have watched it between 11-15 though to be honest i have no idea as i dont count how many times i watch a certain film i just watch them. I do know though i went to see them a couple of times each and then when they came out on dvd especially FOTR and TTT i watched them loads over xmas, then i got over exposed to them and had to leave them alone for a few years and now i can watch them again. The books though, never get old..
