  Exactly what i expected!

| | See all chubbster999's reviews (1)

With this box set you'll get just what your expecting. Simple as that. As long as you have the right set up to view this on, the picture is quite amazing. The sound is also fantastic, as it should be on a blu-ray. But that is all your getting. you first have to ask yourself "do i really have the cash spare for this"? If your not worried about sound and picture then dont bother, cos as stated in many reviews the films are still split over two discs each. For me thats not a comlete loss as i dont always get the time to watch a whole film in one go! So its easier for me. But alot of people seem to be upset about it. If you do have the cash spare though i would get this. It really does look and sound great.

  The extended, extended version

This buray extended edition is a must for all L.O.T.R fans. I had the dvd extended version, but this bluray has longer scenes than the dvd version. Not only that, but the sound and picture quality is absolutely astounding. The resonating pitch of sword hitting sword, and when the arrows embed themselves, you can actually hear the boinging (is that a word) quiver of the impacting missiles. The dialogue is so much clearer and as for surround sound and bass, it literally blows the dvd version out of the water. It merits being put onto 2 discs. If you have a top notch cinema system, this really should be your show case movie.

  Totally Mind Blowing

Really couldnt wait for this to come out. Just totally amazing bluray quality picture and sound. I played the movie through my bluray surround sound and it just takes these movies to another level. Any fan of these movies should buy this A TRUE MASTER PIECE. Have the Star Wars Saga on bluray ordered as well. Cannot wait.

  One greed to fool them all !

The long version of the films spread over six blu-ray discs is simply fantastic, but to include nine dvd`s of re-released extras in bad quality is total rubbish. I have grown tired of all this expensive LOTR packages who does nothing more than milk religious fans of their well earned money by selling the same product over and over.

I am looking forward to a barebone blu-ray release with the long version of the films only.

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.

Ok, Was really looking forward to replacing my DVD version of this with BluRay. Must say that I'm dissapointed. The description is not really accurate. The description would suggest 15 Blu Ray Discs. This is not the case. 6 Discs for the movies (each movies split over 2 discs same as the dvd's were) the remaining 9 discs are DVD's. This annoys me really because If i'd known before purchasing I may have waited for a Blu ray version of the extended movies by them selves. Now I have 2 copies of the Extras on DVD having purchased them years ago.

So yeah, If you already own the DVD extended editions with the Appendices i'd hold on for an extended movie only release.

i purchesed the previous blueray release and after veiwing this extended blueray edition...there is no competition....the picture quality in the extended release is so much crisper clear striking and the colours much richer!!
this is worth buying and i highly recomend it....personaly im glad they split the film to 2 discs because the quality is worth it!
