Format: DVD
First of all the good news, the cover says that this movie is presented in a standard format, formated to fit your screen, but it is in fact in a widescreen format (but, since I don't have a widescreen TV, I can't tell you whether it is anamorphic or not). Why the back cover says otherwise is a mystery to me (as the original release of this on DVD stated that it was presented in widescreen).

As for the picture quality, it looks quite good, with only the odd bit of film related dust specks/print damage, to the point that it's almost non-existent. Colours are nice and bold, and detail is very good (I'd hazard to guess that this DVD probably looks better then it did in the cinema back in 1978).

As for the extras, you get a 30 minute bio piece on Ralph Bakshi that actually feels like a cliff notes version of a much larger documentary (but it does have it's merits) and nothing else, not even the trailer for the film (which the original DVD had along with some text info) so if you're a completist like myself then you'll want to keep the original DVD as well.

As for the film itself, for all of it's short comings, it still holds up as being a very regal attempt at putting the books to film, with very little budget and no real support from the studio (to the point that the film just abruptly ends about halfway into the second book with no fanfare, due to the money running out and the studio not paying to have the film completed).

Personally, I applaud Bakshi for his efforts (because think about it, no one attempted to bring this story to film before him, and it took over 20 years and hundreds of millions of dollars for some to try to film it after him) and think the film is very good for what it is.

Format: DVD
I guess that I'm a little different than most people, because to me, this was the best animated movie of all times! Unlike most others, the rotoscoping animation made the movie even better. The music was superb, much better than the recent trilogy. I found this animated version a thousand times better than Peter Jackson's. It was much more magical. The Orc's were more mystical than Jackson's hideous sci-fi Orcs. The ring wraith were more dark and interesting than the recent version also. I have seen this movie at least 50 - 60 times, and it just gets better. I only wish that they had finished the movie to include book three. As much as I like Peter Jackson's newer version, it will never be as good as this one!

This movie it's just a diamond of animation. Long running for more story and a good adaptation before the Peter Jackson one for the lord of the rings.

I had only an old VHS copy of this movie, and I thought to myself that the remastered edition DVD would be practically unrecognizable. Quite the contrary! The music is the same, the animation is the same... It's just as I remembered!

If you seen this movie you will enjoy this movie. I use to go to the theatre and watch the movie many time when it played. The animation is great and the store is great. You have to like Animated Movies and wizards and powerful dark underworld. The power of the rings were made for Kings and elfs and one ring to role over them all was made bye evil. This movie has adventure, suspense and war for man kind, between good and evil. The Hobbits you can't for get because they are part of the story. I gave this movie a 4 because I like this movie a lot but I also like the new movies that have been made with real people. Great acting enjoy.

This form of the Lord of the Rings is okay, but I wished it would stay either a cartoon or a live action. I found the mix a little distracting from the plot. That being said I like it anyway

once again another bakshi movie is at times hard to follow or completly understand what is going on, even though it made more sense than most of his other movies. And once again despite its flaws it does look very cool. His animation style and rotoscoping give all his work a very unique sense of style and this is where he gets most of his appeal. We are given very good characters and the first two books of the lord of the rings trilogy compacted down into one movie that unfortunatly was never finished.

Format: VHS Tape
I bought this film on a semi-impulse, and it is one of my worst buys, ever.
Other than the lousy animation, there are a LOT more problems with this film:
1) The music: Well, it isn't that bad, though it is a bit, um, noisy at the beginning, really 70's music(not Rosenman's fault, afterall this film was made in the 70's), and kinda Batman-ish.
2) Ok, so, basically, Isildur snuck up behind Sauron, then slashed off His ring finger. How heroic!
3) Then, there's this scene of the Shire, '19 years passed sleepily in the Shire'... and we get a nice wide view of the Shire: Winter dissolves into Spring, then to Summer, then Autumn... Typically cartoon-ish, but that's fine. Then, just as I'm starting to get into the mood, they flash heaven knows how many seasons in less than 2 seconds. ...
4) Gandalf the Grey: In Bag End, he recited the Ring inscription. According to the book, he never did so, as the inscription was of the language of Mordor. That's fine, but what really irritates me are his actions and the way he pronounces 'Sauron'. Tolkien has stated quite, quite clearly in the Appendixes that it is pronounced something like 'Sour-ron', NOT 'Sore-ron'. Evidently, they have not made any effort to research. And his actions! As he recites the inscription, he gesticulates as if he was praying to some demented god, and as he translates it to 'and in the darkness, bind them', he wraps himself up in his arms. What the??!?
5) And why on earth would Frodo and Gandalf chit chat about the Ring outside Bag End?? Didn't Gandalf say that the spies of the Enemy are many??
6) Saruman or Airuman? Sometimes he's Saruman, sometimes he's Airuman. Perhaps the filmmakers are afriad me might confuse Saruman with Sauron, but they might as well be consistent about that.
7) Saruman's Voice.
