About this deal

It's a fairly straightforward box set, rising above others only by sake of its attractive design and individual cases, and there are few frills to speak of. But most of the additions are little bits that give more detail, but for all the add-ons, the pacing is kept up — one never feels the additional 43 minutes.

Saruman the White looks like he's standing under one of Bruckheimer's CSI filters, his skin looking a tiny bit jaundiced. They meet Aragorn (Mortensen) who helps them get to Elrond (Hugo Weaving) so they can decide what to do with the ring. speaks to Tolkien's creation of the languages of Middle Earth and the roots of his mythology, while delving into thematics that correlate to the author's life, as analyzed by Tolkien scholars. As for the colour (color) issue - it didn't bother me as the changes seemed minor in respect to the long length of the films, and the 'feel' of only some of the scenes.This fan's favorite literary giant became a fan favorite cinematic giant immediately, but will it be a gigantic Blu-ray system seller? Each of the movies is more than 3 hours long, and considering the very high quality of picture and audio, they had to divide it to two DVD's, with the other two DVD's dedicated to appendices containing many superb extras.

The downside: instead of converting the supplements to 1080p, or having all the supplements on one Blu-ray disc, the films’ extras are presented in DVD versions. Twelve months have passed since the trilogy was first release on Blu-ray, shamefully presented in just its Theatrical Edition format, with a few throwaway extras on superfluous SD-DVD discs, and, for a whole year fans have been crying out for a decent release.Peter Jackson didn't seem like the most natural pick when selecting a director for one of the most expensive and expansive film series ever created. It should be understood, though, that overall these video presentations are excellent and represent the best that this trilogy has ever looked since its original theatrical run. As for the extended cut, without providing a frame-by-frame analysis of the addendums, the additional footage consists mostly of things trimmed to get the film near a three-hour running time. The epic fantasy series details the journey of young hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) to . From the merry life of the shire to the eerie whispering of the ring to the ugliness of Saruman's snarling, growling army of orcs, the entire range of effects is treated with stalwart fidelity.

Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron. covers all the Kiwi locations of the third film, while Middle Earth Atlas allows the user to track the paths followed through Middle Earth in the course of the movie. And while the ring has laid fairly dormant in the sixty years it resided in Bilbo's pocket, an evil stirring in Mordor has awoken the ring.One highlight is a documentary on the creation of Gollum, covering every aspect of the filmmaking process that was required to bring this unforgettable character to life. How much/what is shown in these extended scenes and do they add, or detract to the Peter Jackson showcase of LOTR? Although shot back-to-back in sequence, the films were each translated to High Definition with slightly varying results when it came to the Theatrical Cuts. The majority of the new additions aren't to his, Frodo (Elijah Wood), and Gollum/Smeagol's (Andy Serkis) journey, but to the others. They bought the DVDs of the three movies when they first came out, then the trilogy box set, then the extended editions, limited editions, extended trilogy, and finally, in April of 2010, the long-awaited Blu-ray edition.
