A classic film and the extended versions plus all the extras are so very much worth it. A great set to sit down with on a rainy afternoon.

This movie and this entire trilogy is amazing. The films get 5 stars all day long and the extra footage is fantastic. So you might ask why I'm only giving it 4 stars then? There's one major issue I have with this product, and that it's a Bluray copy of LOTR, but the film is still separated on two discs. Why? There's no good reason for this when you can easily put 5 hours+ worth of content on one disc to make me change discs for the movie halfway through. There's no reason they can't put the entire film on one disc and the special features on the second disc.
I'd love to give this product 5 stars, I really would, because the cover art and extras are all amazing. But it's incredible to me that they immerse you into the film for 1.5 hrs and then rip you from the world and tell you to put in a second disc. If this was DVD I would understand, but you can easily fit the entire film on bluray.

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien is the epitome of fantasy fiction and the Film adaptation by Peter Jackson helps make it an even more powerful long term classic that stays with us forever. Everything about it is just perfect, from the sound and visual effects to charcater casting. It was an ingenius idea to shoot in New Zealand, this movie is a must watch. It stars Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins, Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, Sean Bean as Boromir, Dominic Monaghan as Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck, Sean Astin as Samwise Gamgee, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, John Rhys-Davies as Gimli, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Billy Boyd as Peregrin "Pippin" Took.

“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.”

Bilbo Baggins of the Shire had an amazing life then retired to journey far away leaving behind the ring of power to his dear nephew Frodo Baggins.
“When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.”
Frodo forms a bond with a an amazing group of people we came to love known as “The Fellowship of the Ring”
“Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.”

In this very powerful, classical story, passion, friendship, love, loyalty, mystery, and action is masterfully blend with realistic, three dimensional characters. Tolkien’s story happens in a different world, and he makes that world palpable. There is this unspoken connection between his readers and his story, it’s as if he reaches out through the enchantment of his pages to touch our hearts and one cannot help but love his work. The adventure of his characters are epic, wrought with danger, sadness, grief and triumph. Readers appreciate the fragility of life in a time when darkness looms over the world and death was omnipresent.

Tolkien is a master storyteller and it’s almost impossible to find a very successful author today who has not drawn upon his work for inspiration, he also set the foundation for many up and coming writers.

The Lord of the Rings is truly an unforgettable read that stays with you for a lifetime, this enthralling tale is a worldwide bestseller and its regarded as insult to this great writer to not read his work whether you are a new or established writer in this genre. Fiction just doesn’t get as good as Tolkien and Peter Jackson did him Justice.
