Warner Home Entertainment's Blu-ray release of the epic fantasy series, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is the big-screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's much-heralded literary creation, which details the journey of young hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood, Wilfred) to keep the Dark Lord Sauron from acquiring the One Ring and ruling all of Middle-Earth.
This fifteen-disc collection offers director Peter Jackson's extended edition of the trilogy alongside a wide assortment of bonus supplements, including behind-the-scenes documentaries, interviews with cast and crew members, archival footage, and audio commentaries.
Through today, Amazon is offering The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy for $43.49, or 64% off its SRP of $119.98.
Never rely upon Amazon for accurate product information. The 1.77:1 aspect ratio they list for every release simply means it's enhanced for widescreen monitors. It may or may not have anything to do with a given film's correct AR.
I'm still holding out for $30. That's $10 a film because all the extras discs I already own with the superior DVD packaging which I plan to keep. I wish they would have released the individual films without the extra discs because we'd likely see them for $9.99 or less at this point.
I don't understand why everyone flips a lid with this box set because the extras are on DVDs. They are all shot in SD so putting them on a blu ray disc at 480p is not going to make the picture any better than the DVD.
