Watching The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition Blu-ray

18 01 2013


The Lord of the Rings might very well be the film franchise of this generation. Either that, or Harry Potter.

What I have here is the LOTR Extended Edition Blu-ray which is probably the most comprehensive collection of LOTR goodness you will ever find anywhere. The trilogy itself is split into 6 Blu-rays (2 Blu-rays for each film) and you also get 9 DVDs of special features, so that’s 15 discs full of content. I haven’t even touched the special features and I’m not sure if I will ever have the time to.

LOTR is magnificent, full of grandeur yet intricately emotional. You definitely have to watch the first film Fellowship of the Ring to really understand the epic story. If you missed that first film, then you won’t even care about all these people (and elves, dwarves, etc.) running around frantically. But once you get caught up in the world of Middle Earth and its lore, then you will most certainly stay till the end. And it is a LONG way to the end.

It’s a pity that the video quality of Fellowship of the Ring isn’t as good as the other two films, Two Towers and Return of the King. Return of the King looks the best with unbelievably stunning photography which makes the picture pop out at you. This is no doubt one of the best Blu-rays I’ve ever seen. The booming soundtrack is awesome and will just blast apart everything in your house and even your neighbour’s.

Until the Super Ultimate Hobbit Extended Trilogy arrives on Ultra-Blu-ray, this is the set that all LOTR lovers and Blu-ray collectors need to check out.

this is very very cool. 😀 When I saw the trilogy in the movies, I was completely awed at how well the books translated to the big screen. Seeing them in succession must be a new experience as you get to see the progress of each film, especially in high quality blu-ray. Still, I have a special spot in my heart for Fellowship because Sean Bean (Boromir) was in it.

Fellowship might be my favourite of the trilogy, but the story isn’t complete until Return of the King 😀

The trilogy is amazing, the third one has to be my favourite!

Also, do you or anyone you know who writes stories preferably short stories? Why not post more of your fiction there, review others and get some inspiration from other writers? You can build up an audience around your story by starting small writing short stories now and allowing your readers to download and share with others. If you are aiming to be an author, novelist or writer, this is a great way to start to market your stories online. So please check out the site:
