About this deal

Each of the 3 boxes has an inner sleeve that contains a nice booklet, that gives all the details you need about the special extended edition and the appendices, followed by two detailed stylish foldout diagrams that map the entire extras' menus. Also in this section is a still gallery for Abandoned Concepts, featuring the talked about Slime Balrog.

Academy Award wins on each outing, culminating in Best Picture and Best Director wins with the third installment. 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. focuses on Howard Shore (who won an Academy Award for his score), and the songs that come into play in the theatrical and extended edition.

Would I have preferred a single BD of extra features, rather than just brand new replicates of my previous SD-DVD extras discs? 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.

And the skin tones of many others, including Gandalf, look much more tanned as a result of the green/cyan dominance. Gone are many of the niggling digital defects associated with that earlier release, and whilst the image cannot really be regarded as demo quality (not least because of this whole colour timing furore), it is still a very good rendition indeed. Academy Awards® (2003): Best Picture, Director (Peter Jackson), Adapted Screenplay, Art Direction/Set Direction, Costume Design, Editing, Makeup, Score, Original Song “Into the West,” Sound Mixing and Visual Effects The final battle for Middle-earth™ begins.The Costa Botes documentaries accompany acclaimed special features by Michael Pellerin from the original extended cut releases to make this the most comprehensive The Lord of the Rings compilation ever. From Helm's Deep, the shire and Minas Tirith it's obvious that a lot of attention has been paid to making these films as epic and amazing as is possible. Osborne, Richard Taylor, Howard Shore, Jim Rygiel and Cast Including Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Sean Astin, John Rhys-Davies, Bernard Hill, Christopher Lee, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, David Wenham, Karl Urban, John Noble and Andy Serkis, with Smeagol and Gollum. How much/what is shown in these extended scenes and do they add, or detract to the Peter Jackson showcase of LOTR? All the supplements are the same, and they include everything from the four disc sets previously released, along with the Costa Botes documentaries – the ones issued with the two-disc EE sets.

But everything rests on Frodo getting that ring destroyed as both he and Sam come to think it will be the end of them. An HD upgrade to the documentaries would have gone a long way towards alleviating the disappointment at the redundancy in the supplemental materials. covers all the Kiwi locations of the third film, while Middle Earth Atlas allows the user to track the paths followed through Middle Earth in the course of the movie. And the Jackson sensibility is notable throughout, with his silly humor and blood and guts swordsmanship, but this is kept in balance by the weight of the quest to destroy the one ring. mostly has the cast talking about their love of the source material, and the changes that were made - like the snipping out of Tom Bombadill.

From the origins of the rings, to the splitting of a group of kindred spirits who set out to free the world, from humble beginnings to great expectations. The film covers the history of the ring, and how it got to Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm), who received unnaturally long life and health from the ring, but treats it like an addiction. It’s still not perfect, it’s still not demo-quality, but, apart from the up-in-the-air colour timing issue, it is still better than fans have ever had before. 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. Howard Shore's thematic, rousing score is pervasive throughout, reminding us of the hope and courage of the band of heroes in this film as they fight (and largely overcome) all odds, often by the skin of their teeth.
