About this deal

THEN we'll get the all new packaged master director's uncut extended deluxe box set of both the Hobbit and LOTR.

spends much of time talking about the film's premiere, the Oscars, and a short autopsy on the series. With the forming of a Fellowship to help guide Frodo along his path to Mordor to destroy the ring where it was created, all races have put their fate and faith in their newfound Hobbit friend. I like LOTR quite a bit, but I'm not a fanatic (I've read all of the books, plus The Hobbit and have seen all the movies).Spreads out the story around a weeks viewing and each viewing doesn't feel like a marathon to endure. However, assuming that this isn’t a Gladiator-size mistake on the part of Jackson and the studios, it’s only fair to conclude that this is a step up from the previous presentation, and deserves a just-about demo-quality rating all-round. 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. The second is the more standard "making-of," where they cover the difficulties involved in making the picture (especially the money sequences), though producer Barrie Osborne does mention that since all three were shot at the same time, it's sometimes hard to differentiate between what was for what.

There’s no need to split the discussion into individual movies – these tracks are universally great.Watching them again, the films still feel perfect, and though there may be some bad jokes, and perfectionists may wish that more of the books made it on screen (or were added to the extended cuts), the sheer scale that Jackson gets to by the final chapter is one of the great achievements of cinema. It sets up how RotK was forced to contain footage originally intended for inclusion earlier (such as Sarumon's final scene and Smeagol's discovery of the ring), while also shows how this film reunited Jackson with editor Jamie Selkirk, who worked on all of Jackson's films previous to Fellowship of the Ring.

Disc Three offers “The Appendices, Part V — The War of the Ring” which starts with an introduction by Peter Jackson (2 min. If that weren't enough, the disc wraps up with the epilogue “The Battle for Helm's Deep is Over…” (9 min. It seems that if a rating for this edition only was calculated, it would be much closer to 5-stars than the current 3.which talks about the planning that went into making the film, along with “Early Storyboards,” which offers a look at “The Prologue” (8 min. Many would further argue that it really doesn’t matter that the extras come on SD-DVD discs, as they were all recorded in SD in any event – so an upgrade to HD was never really on the cards. One of the most magical, intensely spectacular epic adventures in film history comes alive with these extended editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray boasting unsurpassed high definition picture and sound. What may be most surprising to those who were looking for some of the "important" scenes trimmed but rumored to be filmed is how the majority are brief. Documentaries Cover the Filming Process, Visual Effects, Editing, Music and Sound, and a Touching Tribute as Cast Members Bid Farewell to Middle-earth and the Characters They Played.

Instead, this massive FIFTEEN disc bundle actually only includes SIX blu-rays – the other NINE discs are just DVDs (and it should be noted, although the Blu-rays are Region Free, the SD-DVDs are US Region 1). 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. The feature-length documentaries, with more than four and a half hours of footage, focus on a number of complexities and circumstances that tested the filmmakers, cast and crew during the shoot, as well as a look at some of the comical antics and personal moments on the set.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Bilbo and the Dwarves escape the giant Spiders and Wood-elves of Mirkwood before encountering the mysterious Bard, who smuggles them into Lake-town. All the while, Sauron – the original owner of the ring – is growing more powerful and has recruited Saruman (Christopher Lee) to help build him an army.
