GREAT FILM! but...,
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Special Extended DVD Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
I have to say that Lord of the Rings - The Original Film is the best film i have seen in my life, period.
However, since i bought this extended edition and not the original release i must admit i am a bit disappointed and i think i should have bought the original version.
the problem in this extended version is mainly the music and sound of the film.
I dont know if it is only me but the battle music in many scenes has been recomposed and some is completley new music.
The new music is far far worse than the old one. Im sorry to say that lot of my favourite scenes that had great music accompany them, are now sounding awful with the new music.
I have no idea why they felt like adding new music to this new extended CD and why they changed the original's great music themes.
Apart from the music issue this version rocks too, with some nice additions especially in the begninng.
If they had left the music the same this would get a sure 5 stars like it deserves.
