Customer Reviews of Lord of the Rings-Motion Picture Trilogy/Special Extended 3pk
this collection is so good ...i keep watching never got bored....
Lord of the Rings adapted by Peter Jackson2/26/2012
An excellent adaptation of the books I love. Yes, there are some changes from the books, many not even subtle, but in keeping the books to only three films I think those directorial changes were certainly warranted. For their part, I believe this to be the best book to film adaptation of all time.
TLOTR Trilogy Platinum/Extended Series10/8/2008
Lots of choices to make with this set! Where to start---just the movies or the movies with the cast's commentary or maybe with the writers/producers' commentary or how about the crew's commentary? Four discs per movie adds up to loads of entertainment! Plan to spend a full weekend watching this! I found it to be well worth the cost. The set arrived in very good shape and in a timely manner. I am well pleased with my purchase!
LOTR Trilogy Platinum Series6/5/2008
Overall 4 stars only because I was disappointed in the shipping of the DVDs. While the actual DVDs were in find condition, the boxes were scuffed and damaged - not what I was expecting in a product just shipped to me! Otherwise, the shipping was not delayed or problematic. The movies themselves are fantastic! A wonderful trilogy, and wonderful to watch it in the extended version. My satisfaction with the movies is definitely at a 5-star level.
LOTR Trilogy Platinum Series5/18/2008
This without a doubt is my favorite addition to my video collection. I am still amazed at the production from it's inception at the theater to now. Now with addition of extra footage only helps to underscore how well done the series was done by a brilliant director in Peter Jackson. Seeing the series today is no less stunning than when I saw it the first time.
Lord of the Rings-Motion Picture Trilogy (Platinum4/21/2008
Fast shipping and excellent price, the only thing that I was disappointed in is that the description did not say Wide Screen Version. I would rather of had Full Screen. Other than that it was a great buy!
Definitely "My Precious"!!!5/1/2007
I already reviewed the regular "Motion Picture Trilogy" containing the non-extended editions of the legendary Lord of The Rings masterpieces on one set. However, this newest edition is a grand improvement on the previous edition. This item is a much, MUCH better investment than the old theatrical counterparts and is perhaps the greatest DVD purchase one will likely ever make. A lot "Director's Cut" scenes are usually just added footage that doesn't do a whole lot to add onto the theatrical edition of movies with examples like Star Wars, Manhunter, or even most of the "Aliens" movies as well. The extra material is just that, extras, that wouldn't kill me to never see again. It's a totally different story altogether with the "Lord Of The Rings" movies altogether. While the regular theatrical editions were mind-blowing, the extended cuts of the same films do wonders in fleshing out the story and expanding the characters a lot more. Several characters that were not much more than background people are shown much more screen time, stories are greatly expanded, other scenes are much more meaningful, and the movies overall have a totally different feel altogether thanks to all of the extra footage that was not included on the theatrical editions. Now as I watch them, the old editions of them are rendered almost completely obsolete due to the chopped up nature of them. I sometimes wonder if Peter Jackson grimaced when he had to leave a lot of extra shots out of the movies to fit them onto the theatres when they were released. "Fellowship" has 30 minutes of extra footage included to a length of 3 and a half hours. "The Two Towers" was extended 43 minutes to a total of 3 hours and 42 minutes and finally "The Return of The King" is extended by a grand 50 minutes and the ultimate result is a whopping 4 hours and 11 minutes long! I don't know about you but I don't know how one can make a longer movie like this but Jackson did it! The grand total of all three extended editions is at least an astronomical 11 hours long! This is just the movies themselves. As for all of the extras on the "Extended Editions", there are over a days worth of extras for surf through on the latter two discs of each film set. The things on them are too great to explain in detail with this review. Whether you buy them individually or all at once on this massive gift set, "The Lord of The Rings" trilogy goes down as the greatest trilogy of all time. You could not make a better purchase. I swear it!
Awesome movie, awesome sound.2/9/2007
I wanted this specific version of LOTR Trilogy because of the Widescreen formatting and the 6.1 DTS Sound. I don't really care about the extras or the extended version (but it is a plus), but the widescreen version on my upscaling DVD player combined with the DTS sound turned way up is just unbelievable!
These movies are amazing. Once you hit play, you will want to watch them all straight through. The storyline is one of the most captivating, unique, and fascinating you will ever see. The acting is superb and the casting is perfect. If anyone is looking into watching the trilogy, I recommend buying this box set because you will watch them many times over in years to come. Not only that, but these extended versions offer much more valuable content than the versions shown in theaters. These DVDs are a must have to anyone's collection.
Todas estan subtituladas en espaï¿½ol?1/9/2005
Hola,quiero saber si LAS 3 PELICULAS de la trilogia estan subtituladas en espaï¿½ol. Porque las ediciones extendidas que se venden por separado solo estan subtituladas en espaï¿½ol las dos ultimas (Two Towers, Return of the King), pero The Fellowship of The Ring no esta subtitulada. Quiero saber si en este caso TODAS estan subtituladas. Muchas gracias. I want to know if THE THREE MOVIES included in this product has subtitles in spanish.
The Most Epic Movie Ever Produced!12/15/2004
These are the best movies ever made. With over 12 hours of actual movie time in the extended versions you can never get bored of watching this epic adventure. These are probably the best movies produced to date and every aspect is incredibly detailed. Peter Jackson has taken the world renown masterpiece book "The Lord of The Rings" and made it into a world renown masterpiece movie. The hardcore Tolkien fan and casual movie watcher will not be disapoointed!
