Hello World!

My eyes almost popped out of my head earlier today when I saw the prices for the extended and collector's edition DVD of 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.'

According to EzyDVD.com.au, the extended edition is $74.95, and the collector's edition a whopping $174.95.

There's no way I'm paying another $100 for a pair of statues and an extra disc, but still, $74.95 is pretty steep. And the 'Attack of the Clones' DVD comes out a day later, too, so I think they'll definitely be going on the Christmas list.

  • Official 'Flesh and Blood' Info
    Paramount Pictures released the official synopsis of the upcoming Voyager telefilm, 'Flesh and Blood':

    The U.S.S. Voyager answers a distress call from a Hirogen training facility, only to find a holographic environment littered with Hirogen corpses. The holographic technology given to the Hirogen by Captain Janeway for hunting training has been modified to the point where the prey have become the hunters. The holograms have not only become self-aware, but are essentially a new race, seeking refuge from "organic" slavery and brutality. Seeking to liberate one of "their own," the holograms kidnap the Doctor, who soon finds himself torn between his loyalties to Voyager and his holographic brethren.
