I am now trying to decide whether to just go all the way to the Middle Earth as the Hobbit ones are supposed to be remastered too.

The Fellowship of the Ring' - When 'The Lord of the Rings' debuted on Blu-ray last year, with the versions that hit theaters, the video qualities created quite the controversy, with 'The Fellowship of the Ring' being the most. The Fellowship of the Ring' - The first film in the series didn't earn as much praise from me the first go-round in its original cut as it will here. The adage concerning not fixing what isn't broken applies to the audio New Line provided 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.

There is some odd feedback behind the participants at times, which isn't quite as annoying as the ringing in 'Sin City' or the horns behind 'Dilbert: The Animated Series,' but if you can hear it, it's massively distracting. The Two Towers: Behind-the-Scenes documentary (106 mins, video: SD, non-anamorphic/letterboxed, audio: English Dolby Digital 2. The new Fellowship of Sam, Frodo, and Gollum/Smeagol is built on anger, distrust, deceit, and vengeance, as Frodo's will and soul are further sucked into the abyss of the One Ring's lure. These two moments are shot and filmed to transition and join however the extended edition does not present them in the original planned sequence. While 'Fellowship' was fairly cut and dry, 'The Two Towers' has a level of comedy that is very welcome, and effective, as the gruff Gimli often finds himself on the butt end of the joke.

For separate evaluations of each film's new Dolby Atmos audio mix, please see their individual listings. Tolkien’s Middle-earth won 4 Academy Awards®* and earned 13 total nominations including Best Picture.Mankind has little time left to assemble and rally to survive, their fate lying on one hobbit, who may not be capable of completing his mission.

The third and fourth disc for each film contain the Appendices, the final two discs on their respective original Extended Edition DVD releases. One birthday, upon the guidance of his old friend Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Bilbo bequeaths his possessions to his nephew, so he may live out his life creating a novel of his adventures. Lazy, really, almost as lazy as the gifts given to members for no reason other than to be used later in the story. The final score on this set is Blu-ray: 6, DVD: 9, where the DVDs could have all easily fit on a single BD50 disc per film (even at a maxed out DVD9, that would just be barely more than a BD25 disc, before reconfiguring and updating menu systems.As was the case with Fellowship, the A/V presentation of The Two Towers: Extended Edition is magnificent in virtually every respect.

To complete the extended versions of each film, new score was added by Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore and hundred of new digital effects were created. Until Jackson (or Lesnie) himself speaks out on the matter, there may not be such a thing as "right" or "wrong," so, neither of those words will be used to describe the video. Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron. War led to the defeat of Sauron, though the greed, treachery, and lust for power of mankind prevented its destruction, and soon after, it was lost for over two thousand years.We further suspect that many of those who've been following the controversy for the past couple of weeks will wonder what the fuss was about. After the scene where the Black Rider Leaves there is this very long shot of Frodo looking at the ring… We are holding on that image a very long time. Range is brilliantly unchecked, and the echoes found in this trilogy, there may not be any better example on this format! Now, with the Blu-rays of the Extended Editions falling into consumer hands earlier than street date, controversy again would erupt. Doomsayers and cynics were convinced Jackson's expanded trilogy wouldn't arrive on Blu-ray for another two or three years, when The Hobbit was readying its march into theaters.
