The Lord of the Rings finally on blu-ray!!!

5

I've just bought this Lord of the Rings blu-ray collection, and I was very excited to get it. Know, that I finally have it I have to say, that it is truly wonderful. The outer box case is very hard, and sturdy, and looks very good on the shelves. Inside it there's three individual cases, all containing the main movie on a Blu-ray, and a bonus DVD with special features. I've already tried all three movies, and the video transfers are wonderful, the best among them is the picture of the Return of the King, the third movie, but all movies look and sound very good on the ultimate format. The special features are very interesting, although not as expanded, and lush, as the special features of the extended versions, but I still find them very interesting. So, ultimately, I can't recommend this boxset enough both for the lovers of Blu-ray, and for the fans of the trilogy.

LORD OF THE RINGS BLURAY

5

As soon as I received the pack, took it out and pushed the Fellowship of the Ring inside my PS3, and the wait for it was finally over. As the movie begins with history and the shire, the quality of bluray comes into view. With the green and the nature all around the shire showing a real life perception, the bluray shows us the real meaning of it. The dark second film Two Towers, the visual aspects of the movie is portrayed via deep sense of colors. With a solid transfer depicting visual effects as it is in real life the disc was fantastic. And the third movie, The Return of the Ring is the best movie out of them all. The one to rule them all, the one to beat them all. With a great detail on characters and the interactions with the nature, this disc is great and one of the best. With great audio and video the trilogy stand out as one of the greatest bluray movies ever. With only the sad nod towards not having the extended versions, the Lord of the Rings trilogy Bluray is awesome and one of the best.

Excellent edition!! It's Theatrical Edition, no extended... It's the perfect trilogy with 5.1 sound and excellent video quality! It's a great offer to get on of the most important films in the history of the cinema!

Something that will live forever

5

This motion picture trilogy will take you to amazing world of magic and mystic. The film cast is awesome starting Elijah Wood,Viggo Mortensen,Liv Tyler,Ian McKellen,Cate Blanchett .... I strongly recommend to all of you to watch all of 3 movies in a row,because that's the best way to feel what i felt when i first time saw all of them.I try to explain that in this way if you were sad or worried you will fill at the very and that you somehow solved your problems. Its funny how their quest becomes your quest,their happiness will be yours too... Anyway i just waned to say that this film will always linger,you will have something value and worth of watching so your money will be well spend.

Shame on you, New Line

I actually find it incredibly insulting that the studio put out the Theatrical Versions on Blu-Ray instead of the Extended Versions.. Even a simultaneous release wouldn't have been so bad, but no.. We're expected to shell out twice if we want a Blu-Ray copy for the interim.. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of the Trilogy, but buying it 4 times over? I really don't think so.. Aside from that, the Blu-Ray transfers get progressively better from film to film, with ROTK being a superb and beautiful transfer that really shows off your player. FOTR is a little ropey in places with a fair amount of DNR, but it's certainly passable. All in all, it's an average release of three phenomenal movies.

The three best films ever made (yep, I said it) look truly marvellous on Blu Ray. They are the reason I bought the machine in the first place, and they have been optimised for the format with real love and affection. This is the only way to watch these flicks. AWESOME

LOTR, DVD vs BluRay

3

Are the Lord of the Rings films worth buying simply for the opportunity to watch them in high definition? The mitigating factor, primarily, is whether you prefer the theatrical cuts or the Extended Editions, or in my particular case, the theatrical version of Fellowship but the Extended versions of Two Towers and Return of the King -- a preference which makes straightforward "set" purchases impossible. The problem, however, is that it's hard to be discouraging of this release since it is obviously intended to be a preamble, an aperitif, for those expanded, extended, encyclopedic version that will no doubt be released, and the last thing that fans want is to scare Warner Home Video off of prioritizing those releases. But the bottom line is, who are we kidding? Is it even remotely possible that poor sales of this set will result in WHV pulling the release of the Extended Editions? They are, after all, planning to make two more of these movies, predicated almost exclusively on the critical and commercial success of the Rings trilogy. In which case, peruse the details of my descriptions of the video and audio quality and determine for yourself if this is a must-have set for your burgeoning blu-ray collection. Because if it's true that Lord of the Rings as a whole was the most important provider of information about moviemaking, then you can decide for yourself how much more you need to know, or maybe how many more times you need to know the exact same thing.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy - best movies ever?

5

It has been a while since the last Lord of the Rings came in theaters and knocked people down with a fantastic story, amazing pictues and wonderful soundeffects and specialeffects. A while later it came out on dvd and likewise a trilogy with all three excellent movies. Now you can get it on blu-ray!! What earlier was an amazing movie collection, is now even more stunning with optimized sound and pictures. If you felt like you were in some way a part of Frodo Baggins journeyt before, you are now going to feel like you ARE Frodo Baggins. Buy this, if you want a fantastic and beatiful story in super quality. Dont let it slip away!
