Great price....certainly the cheapest around!
#2
Good price.

I guess this is being voted cold as it only contains the Theatrical edition of the films rather than the extended editions.
#3
I don't know why people are voting cold. Yeah it doesn't have the extended films which will be released as we all know but for those who want the Theatrical versions this is the best price I have seen.

heat added.

P.S. I'll wait
#4
Verry tempted!

Everywhere else is about the 40 quid mark!

Don't know whether to wait for extended blu-ray or just get this the now?

Voted hot anyway
#5
I'm gonna buy this but only when it drops below £20ish and then i'll buy the EE. Hot price at the mo tho.
#6
Hot! Come on people. this is the version that we all saw in the cinema! You did not rant about it then.
#7
i only just bought this a couple of days ago from hmv for £39.99 so this is hot ....

Well said. I'll be waiting for the extended editions like most fans but lets not forget how great these films were in their original format.

Reviews say this release isn't too sparkling picture quality wise, can anyone comment who has these?
#10
A good price but reviews also state the picture quality is actually not very good for a Blu Ray and hardly any better than an up-scaled DVD.
#11
Maybe it's Peter Jackson using alternate accounts to vote cold.

Its ok to vote cold if you don't like the product.

I think its pretty damned good :thumbsup:
#13
I was going to buy this just because it was LOTR in bluray, and the wait is going to be a long one for the extended editions but every review I've read said the picture quality is pretty poor :?
#14
when does the xtended get released?
#15
The PQ isn't as bad as its made out, but as they are only the Theatrical I downloaded the 1080p rips to tide me over until the proper Extended Editions when they come out, which I will buy.
#16
With the picture quality being poor on these theatrical edition Blu Rays, for the patient its worth waiting and hoping they improve the extended editions.

If not got already, I think the money is better spent on the extended edition dvds for now, after all the film is split over 2 disks ensuring an already high bitrate transfer, so if you have a decent upscaler they do look very good and already have a very decent 6.1 DTS-ES soundtrack.
#17
Can't argue that the price is pretty good...however, a quick scan of the reviews for the US edition indicate the picture ain't up to much. I think this trilogy deserves a proper release, all singing & dancing with a raft of new special features in glorious HiDef...and all supervised by the great Jackson himself! As it's got 'average' picture quality and no new features to speak of...and no Jackson input...you can bleedin' keep it mate!!

...not to mention theatrical cuts...ugh!!!! :x

...if this was £1 I'd have to vote it cold...sorry, but you gotta make a stand sometimes!
#18
£20 reduction since release 2 weeks ago
#19
I ran a simple test with the upscaled DVD and the Blu-Ray, you can only tell the difference if your less than 2 ft from the screen 37".

I didn't own the blu-ray, rented it. So as a result I bought the extended DVD version from Amazon £18.

You should all do the same.
#20
Just this once, and no disrespect to the OP, but stand up for all of us as consumers (dirty word) because these releases are pure rip-offs - I'm voting cold, just so that I'm not promoting this to all the people who are in fact most likely to buy these, then stump up again for the inevitable superior releases later on.

That's not true.

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/2313/lordringstrilogy.html

Only the first movie has a less than great review (3 out of 5) for image quality, the 2nd and 3rd films are supposed to be much better (4 out of 5). They might not be the best looking blu-ray transfers but they definitely aren't the worst, and they will still look miles better than upscaled dvd.
#22
How is £30 for movies released in 2004 a "good price?" Oh right, Blue Ray, that's a scam, these are just up-scaled DVDs with a doubled price tag.

You can buy (Amazon):
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Extended Edition Box Set) [DVD]
£17.99

It is the same exact same movie. HDTVs cannot even display DVDs at full picture and sound quality and you need an even higher definition format?
#23
been waiting for this to drop

Has it crossed your mind people may actually want these theatrical cuts rather than the EE? :thinking:

Erm, what? What do you mean?
#25
I decided to go for this deal, can't wait for EE's, I will buy them when they come out next year, under a tenner each for my favourite films is a must..can't wait to hear DTS Master 6.1 on these!

I too will not be purchasing because I will wait for the extended versions. However, this is a hot deal. It is the cheapest you can find this product... you're forgetting the function of this website if you vote cold.

From what I have seen and digested, the first film is not quite as good as the second two in terms of Blu Ray quality and transfer.

That most Blue Ray discs aren't reproductions from the original film and instead are upscaled DVDs? And that most HDTVs aren't HD and cannot display the full colour and pixel depth of a DVD let alone the surround sound.

My PC can. And yet it is such good quality from a DVD I never see any need to go even higher quality. In fact I would happily drop the quality down if it meant saving money. DVD displays wonderfully and I could easily increase my screen size by several inches without any loss.

Come again? You presumably have facts to back up your assertion that "most BluRays are just upscaled DVDs"?

The Extended Edition of Lord of the Rings are out on Bluray are out in 2012

Check your facts ;-) Blu-ray movies are remastered from the original source, not just upscaled versions of DVD. Anyone with a 1080p TV and a blu-ray player can experience full-HD picture quality. The discs also often included uncompressed HD audio, a feature that movie enthusiasts will probably have the equipment to hear.

DVDs are good quality yes, but 1080p full HD Blu Rays on a Full 1080p TV are better. Granted a very very few minority of films have been upscaled, but you can definetly tell the difference between DVD and Blu Ray.

Some movies are more noticable than others. I watched the EE of LOTR (DVD) on my PS3 last week and the quality was amazing. I actually dont see the point in buying the Blu Ray version any more, as upscaling worked very well and was hard to tell the difference between this DVD and some Blu Rays i bought. However, films like LOTR, Dark Knight or movies that were shot with brilliant picture quality are awesome even on DVD, especially having been upscaled. Other films are no so impressive and the Blu Ray takes them up to a brilliant new level.

Basically, there's no point rushing out and buying all your DVDs on Blu Rays unless you're really vain. Dvd quality is sufficient enough still, and im sure they will still be made for many years yet, before the majority of Blu Ray comes down to DVD prices.


Anyway. Great Price for this Trilogy. Not seen its cheaper than £40 yet b4 this :thumbsup:
#34
Bought it
#35
Tempted, but gonna wait for the extended versions whenever they are released.

May buy if there's a misprice or a really cheap price though. :whistling:
#36
I think the price will drop further, as most fans are waiting for the EE to be released. That is why the price has had to drop so much already, to try and get people to buy it. Still a hot deal though as it is the cheapest on the market at the minute by a good margin!!
#37
HOT! I want... :thumbsup:
#38
I've already got the EE editions on DVD and I have a rule that I won't buy something again on DVD. This rule would have been broken if the EE had been released on Blu Ray but for now this is only worth it to those that don't currently own the movies ... and if you like LOTR you will already have them!

Are you a troll or are you serious? On any HD-TV you can tell the difference between a Bluray and an up-scaled DVD. I am not saying it is night and day, but if you can't watch both and tell the difference then you need your eyes tested.

They are also definitely not up-scaled from the DVD versions. Most are transfers from 35mm film, some modern ones were shot in digital at better resolution than 1080P.
#40
I think I will download 1080p for now, then buy extended editions. I was going to wait for EE's but I thought they would be out this Xmas, not 2012! I bought all the DVDs on double disc special edition, then I had to rebuy the extended editions too so the studio can f**k themselves if they think I am doing it again on bluray.
