  Excited but disappointed

| | See all FatBuoy's reviews (5)

As someone who has followed LOTR for some 35 years in book, radio play (CD), and then DVD, I am naturally highly excited that this is finally comiong to Blu-ray in its extended format (why aren't all films offered in DVD as extended? [HP take note]). However I have to agree with those who feel that this technology should enable viewers to watch this version from a single disc. I do really enjoy all the extra's, but not at the expense of having to pause a film (3 films actually) in the middle to put in the 2nd disc. And at 55 pounds it does leave a slightly bitter taste in the mouth. Having said all this I wouldn't miss the chance for Blu-ray extended LOTR for all the treasure in Smaug's cave!

  THE KING OF ALL BLU-RAY BOXSET'S

| | See all CHEETAHSPEED's reviews (41)

YES! About time....the fantasic complete extended editions on blu-ray with a wooping 15 disc's! i dont have to say how awsome these films are cause i'm sure you all no these will be one of the best blu-ray boxset's ever like the alien anthology. The films will be in stunning hi-def and extra's that will take weeks and weeks to get through.
On the the box it says limited so this set will only be out for a limited time i think so pr-order this awsome boxset on play.com now! i definately have.

  Not Happy!

I was so looking forward to this release but I am left very disappointed. What is not explained is that each film is split over 2 discs(6 of the 15) to allow all the extra commentaries + what they say will allow the best picture/audio quality. Whilst I applaude the extras(2 stars) I can't help thinking if they'd have ditched the 4 commentary tracks we would have the film on one disc & not something that reminds me of when DVD first started out & you had what was called a "DVD flipper" i.e halfway through the film you had to get up & turn the disc over to watch the 2nd half of the film-this is no different. Sorry to sound so negative but for 55 pounds buyer beware.

  At last!

| | See all how1ard's reviews (36)

Oh yes this is what we've been waiting for! I just hope they've improved the transfer of the first two films which were poor on the theatrical release, which I borrowed from a friend as I've been waiting for this version, the only one to watch.
