I RATE THIS DVD 2 OUT OF 5 STARS!!!! Before I get burned let me just say it up front: The movie was nothing short of a masterful adaptation of Tolkien's genius, and I'm glad someone finally, actually, got it right on film. (It DESERVED Best Director AND Best Film, and the fact that it didn't get it shows that Hollywood and its "Academy" is just as self-serving and political as anyone on Capitol Hill...) As for the DVD, however, I was disappointed. Sure, the studios are allowed to think marketing, but to make us wait until November for the expanded version (4 discs, incl. 30 extra minutes of the movie), just smacks of Enron-style greed. They know that all us die-hards are going to buy both releases anyway, and they're taking advantage of that. This release of the DVD doesn't include that much extra. It has all the trailers and TV spots for Fellowship, but doesn't include the teaser for Two Towers (which was playing at the end of Fellowship in the movies). Some short "behind the scenes" clips (~10 minutes each), but no in-depth character interviews, etc. The Enya video. A preview of the game. I was expecting so much more in this DVD, but what you get is what you saw on screen, some bones to whet our appetite, and not much more. They're making us wait. Thus my low rating: Movie: 5 Stars; DVD product: 2 Stars. I'll wait for the November release of the extended version.

one of the best movies in history

on 5/2/2012

This is a must watch movie by any movie lovers. I have watched it a number of times. It is just fantastic and superbly made movie. The story keeps you very engaging. I love all the lord of the movies series. I'm surprised that this one didn't get as Oscars as the others. I think this is the best of all. Read More
