There’s no need to split the discussion into individual movies – these tracks are universally great.

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. How much/what is shown in these extended scenes and do they add, or detract to the Peter Jackson showcase of LOTR? If that weren't enough, the disc wraps up with the epilogue “The Battle for Helm's Deep is Over…” (9 min. As five great armies go to war, Bilbo fights for his life, and the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must unite or be destroyed. A journey that will cross the whole of Middle Earth, with every inhabitant affected by the crusade of the few, the proud, the Fellowship of the Ring.It sets up how RotK was forced to contain footage originally intended for inclusion earlier (such as Sarumon's final scene and Smeagol's discovery of the ring), while also shows how this film reunited Jackson with editor Jamie Selkirk, who worked on all of Jackson's films previous to Fellowship of the Ring. An emotional highlight of the Appendices is a documentary showing the cast bidding a fond farewell to Middle-earth and the characters they played. Now back when the theatrical edition Blu-ray was being promoted – just prior to release – there was a big ‘net hubbub about how these were going to be remastered transfers. The majority of the new additions aren't to his, Frodo (Elijah Wood), and Gollum/Smeagol's (Andy Serkis) journey, but to the others.

Tolkien’s Middle-earth won 4 Academy Awards®* and earned 13 total nominations including Best Picture. Fellowship' does more than just set the entire series into motion, despite the fact that it doesn't have a true conclusion.

It's also interesting to note that the commentators are at times a bit critical of his writing style, and are surprised that the thing was published at all. which offers a location-by-location series of scouting trips of the places filmed in New Zealand as substitutes for middle Earth. There is a sense of scale here that is unparalleled – you’d have to go back fifty years to see someone attempt something of this scale, but the freedom of digital technology means that it’s not just panning across thousands of people, but swooping from up high, and going everywhere. 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. Four Hobbits (Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd) join up with a Dwarf (John Rhys-Davies) an Elf (Orlando Bloom), a wizard (Ian McKellan) and two humans (Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen) to destroy a ring that controls the fate of the world.

Suffice it to say, with so much ground to cover, there simply isn't a more efficient and thorough way to cover the full 15-disc Extended Edition release. Not that you’d notice, unless you were a) a massive fan or b) watching the two Blu-rays simultaneously for cross-comparison – but that doesn’t detract from the fact that there has been a change.

Certainly those who have somehow resisted purchasing all (or any) of the previous FOUR digital home media releases of this trilogy should rest assured that this is the definitive package.

As with the extended DVD editions, the films have been split over two discs, so no information has been lost in compression. The long spoke of "Mouth of Sauron" scene, in which a nefarious ambassador (Bruce Spence) meets Aragorn's army at the Black Gates, takes about a minute. The score is soaring and spacious, while dialogue is crisp and never lost, even in the midst of the chaos. 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.It's allusions are veiled properly, mixed in with a coming-of-age and responsibility tale, so that viewers young and old can relate to the subjec In addition to the extras from the extended edition DVDs you also get the three Costa Botes making-of documentaries, one for each film, that were included in the limited edition DVD release.
