My Precious!! Extended Hobbit DVD out today

Just a reminder that the "Supersized, Bloated, Extended Edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today in a store near you.

Now this new, longer version adds another 12 minutes to an already massive 2 hour and 50 minutes and includes additional footage of the little hobbits going to the bathroom and engaging in hobbit-styled coitus.

Well, not really, but director Peter Jackson insists that we know every nook and cranny of a hobbit’s existence, which is why he added more to this film and already took the book and expanded it into an unnecessary three films.

The new set, which will cost a whopping $30 for the 3D Blu-ray, is five discs thick and includes everything you wanted to know about the making of the epic.

Oh hell, I’ll probably pick it up today at the nearest Best Buy. Damn you Peter Jackson!
