I had lost my original copies and was really disappointed, but I decided to take a chance on this order and I was so happy.
Love the Extended Version of the whole Lord of the Rings movies, it is the only way to watch it. All of the behind the scenes moments are incredible, I also recommend the cast commentaries, I'd you need a laugh listen to Billy and Dominic. The Director and producers give so much in-depth insight on the vision you just feel like you could listen non-stop.
I need the Extended Edition of The Hobbit next.
If for my experience with the seller, there were no hitches at all, and I thank that person.

Still looks amazing even though it is a long time since this movie was first released.
Makes Game of Thrones look like an episode of Emmerdale.
The films for me just never age, they are, as a trilogy, my favourite films of all time. The bluray is spectacular and i feel as though i am watching the films for the 1st time.
Great to chill out on a sunday with.
The movie itself is arguably the best in the trilogy, though it shouldn't necessarily be taken as its own movie. The extended cut of this movie is as great as the one for the first two - it not only expands the running time - it also expands on the story and gives fans a chance to see things that didn't make it from book to cinema screen. The movie is split on two discs; this gives the viewer a logical break in the
For a DVD, the picture is adequate. That said, as a cinephile, it does always bother me, when a DVD transfer has black bars all the way around the movie - I mean, of course there should be black bars top and bottom to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. But those 6-10 on either side of the image are so ugly, when your monitor doesn't apply overscan. This arguably won't bother most casual viewers anyway, and the rest of the 2.39:1 picture looks excellent for a DVD, with the slightly desaturated colours of the original theatrical presentation nicely presented. Like previous releases, the integration of the new scenes is seemless.
The DTS 6.1 ES Surround track is excellent - simply the best DVD has to offer. It is sad, that the push towards Blu-Ray keeps these tracks from being added to DVD - of course Blu-Ray will always sound better, but especially so, if only compared to a Dolby Digital 5.1 track. 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo tracks are also provided.
The last two parts of the "Appendices" are here. Once again an excellent, attractive package is rounded out by a huge amount of exclusive extras. Overall this set is definitely worth the upgrade.
