What is the 235-minute "full version"??
I cannot find any information elsewhere online to support the existence of a third version of this film distinct from the theatrical cut and extended edition, and I have never heard of a longer version than the extended edition (208 min.) having been created, much less made commercially available. Nowhere in the body of the article is this explained or substantiated in any way.
Inaccuracy Regarding the Comparison Between Book & Movie
In the section comparing the book and the movie, there was an inaccuracy. Prior, it implied that Aragorn chased after the Orcs under fear that they had taken Frodo. This is not the case; In the book, Aragorn deduces that Frodo has left by noticing that there is a missing boat and that Sam's pack is gone, and chases after the Orcs due to a compassion for Merry and Pippin. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stargazer7121 (talk • contribs) 18:40, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Country of origin of the films
United States should be listed as a country of origin of The Lord of the Rings films alongside New Zealand because they are US-New Zealand co-productions. Moreover, the American Film Institute (AFI) awards which honours the best "American" movies has included The Lord of the Rings in various best movie lists. See AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies (10th Anniversary Edition) and AFI's 10 Top 10.

Requested multi-page move
does anyone have a proper copy of the movie the current sound is extremely bad, for instance, the dialogues are so soft one has to turn up the volume to full and then the music is so loud that we cannot watch with family due to the bad sound recording, im sure peter j knows the difference of bad sound recording
Pl let me know if i can get a copy of good recording, the current one i have is a DVD and would like to watch the movie with good and audible dialogues and not have to raise the volume every time for dialogues and turn down for music. Its very irritating
- What's your address? do you want me to pop round and read the article to you? IdreamofJeanie (talk) 18:11, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
- @IdreamofJeanie: Please be civil. HawkFest, the infobox says the budget was $93 million, though the budget is not really discussed in the article body. The Lord of the Rings (film series) details the budgets a little more (since the films were produced as one). Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 18:18, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
I remeber not so long ago, the infobox on the right hand side of the page used to list the running times of the theatrical release as well as the extended release. This seems to have been removed for some reason. Could we get that put back in? It's useful and relevant information. --Sauronjim (talk) 09:26, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
Length of Plot Section
I just came to this page, having seen all three of the movies, to get some questions answered. I found the plot to be just the right length to include the key details of this complex story, However, I don't wish to act rashly and remove the tag suggesting the plot be shortened without getting some input. Opinions? Peacedance (talk) 00:42, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
- It is currently 744 words and therefore too long. Why not spend some time editing it down instead of removing tags for a problem that still exists? Elizium23 (talk) 02:28, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
- Hello Elizium23, I appreciate that someone put the tag out there for a reason - but I am not sure precisely what it is. The suggested length for film is 400-700 words, so 744 is 6 % over; the MoS says the policy can be excepted or if "the plot is too complicated to summarize in this range." The plot was difficult to understand if one hasn't caught every line of dialogue or read the books. Therefore I am trying to "Discuss with other editors to determine if a summary cannot be contained within the proper range." On your talk page, you seem like a pleasant person but your comment above did not come across as having any interest in consensus. If I had been in agreement with you, I would have already edited the plot.Peacedance (talk) 18:24, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
