Finally watched the full screen version on dvd. I would have preferred the wide screen, but I figured while I have it I might as well watch it. I was entertained, though I thought it dragged on far too long. I expected it to end when the Fellowship of the Ring was created. Ironically my main disappointment was how quickly the film would show the scenery. I wanted long shots to let it all soak in. Instead were dramatic but quick shots of the journey. I suppose this is also a problem with watching the full screen version. Overall it was good.
