About this deal

Much of the furor about the colors related to some pre-release screen shots; in particular, one that showed a white screen which now boasted a distinctly pea soup orientation. THEN we'll get the all new packaged master director's uncut extended deluxe box set of both the Hobbit and LOTR. But fate smiled upon the tubby (at the time, at least) native, as he was given the reins to adapt the literary giant from famed author J. With the forming of a Fellowship to help guide Frodo along his path to Mordor to destroy the ring where it was created, all races have put their fate and faith in their newfound Hobbit friend.

This section features footage from Jackson's Dead Alive as the Dimholt road sequence was filmed in a shared location, where Bad Taste is featured in the “Bigatures” section (19 min. The remastering process, supervised by Peter Jackson himself and director of photography Andrew Lesnie, involved a brand new digital transfer from the original 2k source, and some tweaking of the colors and contrast. In theory, if this was done as an overall correction, you could just knock down the green channel a couple of points to compensate (essentially adding magenta). Its impossible not to be entertained by these films, each one of them delivers us into an astoundingly realistic and beautiful world where it is very easy to get lost in.They bought the DVDs of the three movies when they first came out, then the trilogy box set, then the extended editions, limited editions, extended trilogy, and finally, in April of 2010, the long-awaited Blu-ray edition. As they say, your mileage may vary, but I thought the transfer looked great, even with some mild color alterations.

Here they were Michael Horton and Jabez Olssen, and Jackson talks about the process where in which he gets to see a rough cut put together first, with often crude animation filling in for the uncompleted sequences. The finally bonus extra to be found on the first disc has Frodo and Merry messing about in this short parody. where everyone talks about the relief of having finished, the premieres, and (briefly) what's to come.The end result here pays off in dividends, with solid blacks, rich and vibrant tones and excellent detail throughout. The bottom line is, if you're a fan of Lord of the Rings – or cinema in general – and care at all about video and audio quality, this is a must-own collection.

The longest addition is the one that fans (and Christopher Lee) have been clamoring for since it was announced that it was snipped: the resolution of Saruman (Lee) and Grima Wormtounge (Brad Dourif). The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - The Extended Edition includes a new transfer of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring , which was remastered from the original 2k digital files, and it all comes in multi-disc elite packaging inside a premium rigid slipcase. What may be most amazing about this series — aside from its command of CGI effects; aside from its compelling characters and story; aside from the fabulous star-making performances of Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom; aside from the great casting; aside from the beautiful New Zealand vistas shot by Andrew Lesnie; aside from the sheer spectacle of it all — is how Peter Jackson has made these films his own. Next up is the section Filming Middle Earth, which has two sections: Warriors of the Third Age (21 min.Our review of The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Extended Edition on Blu-ray follows after the jump.

Also in this section is a still gallery for Abandoned Concepts, featuring the talked about Slime Balrog. Effects are simply astounding, and where the CG in these movies (particularly the first entry) is already starting to date a little, the corresponding sound effects have lost none of their potency. As for The Two Towers, here Sam and Frodo meet Gollum, and Merry and Pippen are stuck with Treebeard (Rhys-Davies) and Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf (now the White) help Theoden (Bernard Hill) reclaim his soul from Grima Wormtongue (Brad Dourif) and protect his people from an assault on his retreat fortress – Helm’s Deep.I was blown away by the audio presentations on the Blu-ray release of the theatrical cuts, and, seamlessly extending the tracks for these longer extended editions, I found the aural rendition here even more jaw-dropping. On the one hand, The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy – Extended Edition boasts the most complete, definitive extras package of any previous release. Even on SD-DVD discs; even with no new extra features – this package is still leagues ahead of pretty-much anything else on the market.
