The Fellowship Of The Ring (Extended Edition)(blu ray):
The AVC/1080p picture is housed on two BD-50 discs (Part 1: 105 minutes; Part 2: 123 minutes). I personally appreciate what Warner Brothers/New Line is doing, in order to minimize compression defects. Changing disc also gives people a chance to visit the washroom. The previous theatrical versions were mired in controversy due to the digital noise reduction (DNR) used on Fellowship of the Ring. The video has been completely remastered from the film's 2K digital files, and the result is a vast improvement in details: beards never get blurry, not once, and facial features remain pure. Blacks are inky. The new controversy is the greenish tinge, because the colour timing was redone. Thus, the picture looked different from the original DVD version. But according to the studio, this colour timing was approved by Peter Jackson and cinematographer Andrew Lesnie. Overall, the picture was very pleasing. But don't be surprised when future prequels (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, due in theatre December 2012, and The Hobbit: There And Back Again, due in theatre December 2013) are out that the studios may triple dip with another "newly remastered" version of the film. (4/5)
The Two Towers (Extended Edition)(blu ray):
The AVC/1080p picture is housed on two BD-50 discs (Part 1: 107 minutes; Part 2: 129 minutes). The presentation was magnificent, with great details and strong black levels. Contrast is excellent. (5/5)
The Return Of The King (Extended Edition)(blu ray):
The AVC/1080p picture is housed on two BD-50 discs (Part 1: 128 minutes; Part 2: 135 minutes). Fine detail is abundant, with lovely contrast and accurate color. The image is delicately textured and highly dimensional.Read more ›
Packaging is slightly different to european (french) version, box is narrower (good news too for gain of space in your collection) but french subs are there and for those who wonder about french language it's proper french too, not canadian dubbing.
So: all's fine, great !
PS I've only given it a 4-star because there are those logos & presentations you can't skip at every new vision.
Pour les francophones, il y a la version anglaise ET la version française dans ce coffret blu-ray! :)
I personally don't mind the fact that each part of the trilogy is split in 2 discs, as they each are long enough to require a bathroom/snack break in between.
The one thing I really dislike about this particular package is the amount of previews (a.k.a. garbage) at the beginning of each part. And the fact that there is no way to jump from there to the main disc menu (only by means of pushing the skip scene button many times). I can accept previews and other uninteresting material in rental discs, but not in a movie collection set like this one. A huge disappointment for this reason.
Do I really need to say everything you probably read or heard somewhere already? Yes, all three films are equally great. They were all shot together after all.
Fellowship of the Ring is about as strong an opening chapter as
you could ask for. Two Towers makes you forget it's just a middle chapter
because it's just as brilliant and... Return of the King sets a new standard for the finale of an epic trilogy.
As if owning the best trilogy ever made wasn't enough, these extended editions are superior to the original theatrical versions. They make the films feel more complete. Oh yeah and all those extras are so detailed you'll want to check out everything though you probably will never find the time to do so. Basically, this set may look expensive but it's worth every
By the way, if you love the movies, I highly recommend the books. They're
absolutely wonderful as well and I'm not a big reader.
