There seems to be more whinging about this edition from people who haven't even purchased it than any other film. (only Bladerunner coming close !)
I even delayed buying this edition because of all the bad reviews, waiting for the extended version to go down to a sensible price.
Well the extended version trilogy still hasn't gone down to a sensible price and at less than a tenner for the shorter theatrical versions ( a mere 9 hours !) for 3 blu ray films and 3 extras DVDs I thought what the heck I can't go wrong!
I think the whingers have forgotten what brilliant films these are , they were good enough at the cinema and are still great to watch again and again. Of course I have the extended versions on DVD so can watch the 10 1/2 hours for all 3 if I want to, and to think I paid over £20 each for those, so didn't want to spend another £40+ for the blu ray copies.
From a technical point of view the Blu ray copies are better than the up scaled DVDs, but with less layer break glitches and the whole of each film on one disk ! Sound quality is significantly better but that's just my opinion and picture quality is superb, even on the Fellowship of the Ring. Maybe the techies should stop looking at the screen with a microscope and just sit back and enjoy.
Stop the moaning and remember if like me you were lucky enough to see the original LOTR trilogy in the cinema it was probably the best 3 movies you will ever have seen on the big screen . (with the exception of Bladerunner of course !! yes even the 1982 version!)
What other films of this magnificence can you get on Blu Ray for £3 per movie ?! BEST VFM so far this year, money well spent in my opinion.! Get them while you can at this ridiculous price.
OK these aren't the Director's Extended Cuts they are the cinema versions, and only come with a single disc of extras for each movie but for the price this set is superb value for money.
An undisputed five star essential purchase.
The only set back is probably the two discs per movie, but this can be considered a positive if you don't have the time to watch the whole movie in one go, but if you are going to marathon it you'll find yourself getting up a few times to switch it over. Otherwise, amazing.
The hours of extended DVD playtime, as well as all the extras are very much worth the time/money.
I, personally, love being able to see the behind-the-scenes on films like this, and seeing everything that everyone put into the films just makes it all that much more special to me.
I sat and watched all of it over a long weekend, and I felt honoured to have been allowed to watch something that all these people so obviously enjoyed doing. It was quite a wrench realising that I wasn't a part of it, and I never can be!
Really worth your time.
In my opinion, this Extended Edition DVD Box Set is also one of the best ever published for a film. Jackson and his team manage to give you a surprisingly honest look behind the scenes of one of the biggest movie productions of all time.
You won't find any glorification here as you so often do in other Behind the Scenes featurettes where everyon is just congratulating themselves and assuring what a great time they had.
Here, when they say, they had a great time, you actually believe them, even more, as the Behind the Scenes team also does not hesitate to show you the darker moments during the making of the films.
The films itself are presented here in the Extendet Editions and are a must-see for every Lord of the Rings fan. Not only do you get three fantastic films, but additionally to that, every film comes with at least 3 different audio commentaries (a writers one, an actors one and an art department one) who are very interesting and very entertaining to listen to at the same time.
This box set gives you not only three perfect films in (for DVD standart) perfect picture and sound quality, but also one of the best look at what it takes to make a movie.
When I first watched them ten years ago, they inspired me to become a filmmaker myself.
Go. Buy. It.
