It's hard to believe that ol' Pete Jackson and his Hobbit crew edited anything out of the final product. They've turned a relatively short book into three three hour movies, after all. And not that there's anything wrong with that. But come on, guys.

The fact that there's even a minute of serviceable extra footage is baffling, and yet, when the Blu Ray of the first third comes out in October, it will feature 13 whole minutes of legit scenes. Like the one above. If the rest of them are anything like this one -- which features Elrond and Bilbo doing the whole, 'I thought white people couldn't dance...' and 'I thought black people drove like this...' kinda thing, but with Hobbits and Elves -- we're in for some trouble. What's even more baffling is that (as described by the studio) the set will come with:

Nearly nine hours of new special features boasts audio commentary with Peter Jackson, director/producer/screenwriter, and Philippa Boyens, co-producer/screenwriter, and 'The Appendices,' a multi-part documentary focusing on various aspects of the film and the Trilogy.

NINE HOURS OF FEATURES!? What the f*ck? I'm a certified Tolkien nerd and all that, but nine hours of not-movie? That better have Jackson copping to the Zodiac Murders or describing elf-sex or something interesting.
