Yeah same for me, I saw the first one cinema and the last one. Both because I was dragged there. For me, I just found them far too long. It was stretched out to be deliberately epic in length rather that letting it last as long as it needed to. So much could have been left out, and that is why it became tedious. But with SW, often GL had to cut it down, especially with Episode III which would have naturally lasted 3 hours or longer, but he cut it down cause he knew it wasn't necessary. But I think the extra footage would have brought more to the stories than the extra footage does with LOTRs. As said, as a movie achievement, it gets my thumbs up, but personally it is not for me..... In any way shape or form.
