About this deal

and The Two Towers are heavily desaturated to match the more black-and-white aesthetic of scenes from the Hobbit films.

Just listen to the deep sound of the horn of Helm Hammerhand near the end of the film, of the screeching of the Nazgûl as they soar over the fighting in Osgiliath! interactive sound demonstration for Helm's Deep sequence (2 mins, 16x9, 8 separate selections of DD 5. The other oddity around this part is The long zoom up the corridor in Orthanc where Saruman talks of joining Sauron.There have been two previous DVD releases of the Extended Editions, and if you have those, you already own all the supplemental content in this set save for the downloadable Digital Copy versions of the films, which are exclusive to Blu-ray. I also got a bit tired of the constant contrast between the wonderfully vivid, colorful moments and those that are obviously afflicted by some excessive color change stigma. While 'Fellowship' was fairly cut and dry, 'The Two Towers' has a level of comedy that is very welcome, and effective, as the gruff Gimli often finds himself on the butt end of the joke. Fans have long clamored for an Extended Edition Blu-ray release of director Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and some even cried foul when 2010 only brought the theatrical cuts to high definition. Each film and its commentaries are spread across two BD-50 discs and the remaining documentaries and Appendices content is spread across three standard DVD discs.

Each film in this collection features new and extended scenes not seen in the theatrical versions of the films. Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron. But all that goes well for the film is discarded by a repetitive narrative that ruins any real drama. Put in the additional paper inserts in the case (the shameless advertising, such as a Harry Potter mini-catalog. Fellowship of the Rings' is easy to enjoy, though it can be a bit laborious to sit through at times, and it plants the seeds for a great saga to come, while still performing at a high level of excellence itself.Its sturdy gold and onyx outer box -- adorned with an image of the One Ring on the front and a simple rune on the back -- is slightly oversized, but no so much that it will cause any problems for cinephiles with limited shelf space. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the relationship between Gimli, Aragorn, and Legolas fastens through a shared goal, as inter-species tension diminish in a bond of brotherhood that was meant for the entire Fellowship. Sauron is given great prominence and is revered and feared properly, acting as an all-inclusive banner for which evil is done, but his agents are naive, selfish, inherently flawed, failing to give the film any level of tension due to their constant missteps and blunders. The extended editions are made around the theatrical cut’s after the fact and not assembled in the fashion of an assembly.

Academy Award wins on each outing, culminating in Best Picture and Best Director wins with the third installment. The Fellowship of the Ring' certainly was a unique and innovative fantasy film upon its release in late 2001, redefining a genre with its lengthy narrative, gorgeous scenery, and numerous themes and messages, all mixed in with sorcery, mischief, and old fashioned warfare.With Saruman effectively out of the picture, and no real figurehead to the evil forces besides the anti-Jesus, the omnipresent evil eye of Sauron, yet the film doesn't suffer.
