of course, we'd have preffered this box-set to have been released at the time of the 'blu-ray' theatrical release.....they were never gonna do that of course, the very 'stature' of the trilogy is such, they were allways gonna 'milk-it' knowing 'ring's' fans would probably buy both as so many of us did with the 'dvd' release.
not sure why some are critical of the two-disc per film presentation,the quality of the presentation on this format is surely worth it.
the film's ...well, so much has been written down the years, there is little more to say....the films are simply 'terrific'
the magical 'trilogy' takes us to the lands of the 'hobbit's' 'elves' 'orc's' 'dwarfs' and of course 'wizards' not to mention 'man'
the story follows the gallant quest by young hobbit 'frodo baggin's' to destroy the one ring of power which has been passed on to him.
the early part of the journey he has the protection of 'aragon' and friends, however for the greatest part of the dangerous mission he must continue alone, however 'loyal' friend 'sam' will not allow that, so joins 'frodo' for the journey.
they are joined by 'gollum' who offers to be their guide.......however this evil creature only really wants one thing....'the ring'
meanwhile 'arogon' along with 'legolas' and 'gimli' are fighting the many battles against the forces of 'saruman' for the control of middle earth.
it's truly a magical spectacle, yes the content is 'dark' along with an amazing story line.
eye-popping 'c.g.i' and great quality blu-ray ( this is what your blu-ray player is for ----great visual movies )
loads of extras....truly a treasured possession.
