These films are pure gold to the world of cinema, there is nothing better than sitting down on the sofa and watching all three in a row, it is so easy to do this as well because each one follows on perfectly where the other left off. I have also heard that these smashing films are set to be released in TotalHD which will catapult the special effects out of this world, imagine the battle of Helms Deep in beautiful High Definition. These films seem to have been made purely to enthrall the watcher. After the final one finished, I felt like I wanted it to go on forever, to never stop. The ending is so sad as well. These films are not to be missed, pure gold.
I know many years have passed since these films graced our cinema but £9.99 for all three!!?? What are you waiting for? Order it! The films are so well made, awesome visuals and special effects. The story continues well from dvd to dvd. Each may be over 3 hours long but I didn't notice that. Don't just watch them once, free yourself from distractions and settle down to take in the incredible trilogy. I paid quadruple this price and it was worth it.
I cannot believe the comments of the previous reviewer. Were they seriously watching the same films as the rest of us. These films are in a word phenomenal and Jackson has done the books proud. I couldn't ever grow tired of watching these films,particularly The Fellowship of the Ring. My only gripe is that my t.v. is nowhere big enough to do them justice. Ignore the last reviewer, get some munchies, sit down and let yourself be transported to a fantastic world of hobbits goblins and monsters.
Truly desrving of it's record breaking oscars, the story is amazing, the characters are amazing and so are the special effects, the battle scences too are explosive. These are my favourites films of all time, i just can't wait for the hobbit film to be made!
