Seems like a a fairly reasonable price as it's about £5.25 per movie on bluray, and don't forget the quidco! It's not bad to have until the extended versions get released and could be a nice Xmas present without costing a fortune.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid Middle-earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring -- a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay. Beside Wood, the films star Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, featuring Sean Bean, and Ian Holm, with Andy Serkis as Gollum. The films also star Marton Csokas, Craig Parker and Lawrence Makaoare.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
In this first part of the Trilogy, the young hobbit Frodo Baggins inherits a ring; but this ring is no mere trinket. It is the One Ring, an instrument of absolute power that could allow Sauron, the dark Lord of Mordor, to rule Middle-earth and enslave its peoples. Frodo, together with a Fellowship that includes his loyal hobbit friends, humans, a wizard, a dwarf and an elf, must take the One Ring across Middle-earth to Mount Doom, where it first was forged, and destroy it forever. Such a journey means venturing deep into territory manned by Sauron, where he is amassing his army of Orcs. And it is not only external evils that the Fellowship must combat, but also internal dissension and the corrupting influence of the One Ring itself. The course of future history is entwined with the fate of the Fellowship. The film won four Oscars® for Best Visual Effects, Cinematography, Makeup and Original Score.

Before anyone votes cold because this is not the extended version please remember that this site is about the best deal you can find. If you can find this boxset cheaper elsewhere by all means vote as cold, if not either mark or hot or don't vote at all. Thanks

Its about getting the best deal and that doesnt always mean the cheapest price. Everyone knows what clever people they are trying to make us buy the same film in a different format again and again and again and again. It may well be the cheapest price, but If you really like these films then the best strategy is to wait imo. They are probably already done, but they are trying to screw the fans for more money.

Please note that this is just your opinion and it is rather impertinent to tell other people how to vote based on this rather misguided opinion. If people voted purely based on comparing this price to other prices for exactly the same product, then voting would be almost entirely pointless as it could easily be replaced by a computer that mindlessly, mathematically compares two numbers. The point of the human element is that we are intelligent beings who can consider many factors when evaluating a deal. Bleating about people using their knowledge and experience, instead of mindlessly comparing two numbers, is counter-productive and actually quite irritating. If you want to mindlessly compare two numbers, then go for it; but kindly refrain from dictating to others how they should vote.

How is it misguided, is there a defect with this boxset? Does it only work in certain blu ray players, is there any false advertising... I think not.

You may or may not personally prefer to wait for the extended version and this naturally is your right. However you cannot find this particular box set cheaper elsewhere, to vote the best price currently available down purely for a preferance is not right.

You mention my misguided opinion yet fail to see the failure of your own argument.

GIVE IT A REST!

We all know what this is and for the money I'm buying a copy for by son's X-Mas.

Great Price, thanks OP

The theatrical cuts are fantastic. The transfer on the original film is slightly soft due to some DNR and could have been better - but these are the films most of us saw in the cinema, and the ones Peter Jackson has always said are his true "Directors Cut".

Whether you prefer the extended cuts is another issue really and definitely not something to vote cold on.

Great deal I was waiting till it came down to this price, but you have to take into consideration if the item is value for money and when it was over £20 and the cheapest around I didn’t see this value for money personally myself. So I didn’t vote at all but some people might vote cold considering what points other people made.

This is a double-edged sword.

IMO, the price on this set keeps dropping because a lot of people are waiting for the extended versions and these aren't shifting as quickly as they expected. If you're happy with the theatrical versions then fill yer boots.

On the other side, I get the feeling that when the extended versions are released on BR they're going to hike the price to £40+.

Personally speaking, I'm going to wait until the extended versions are available in a box set for < £20 but I'm not voting either way on this deal.
#11
Can I be daft and ask the difference between these and the "extended" versions? obviously play time, but content?
#12
I bought this when it was £28 and even then it was a bargain for any Blu-ray equiped LOTR fan.

I will also buy the extended set when it becomes available but I am not so short sighted as to deny myself this fantastic series of films for 'X' amount of years out of some misguided and masochistic principle about having to have the extended versions or nothing.

It is what it is (and what it is is an absolute bargain at this price.)

I saw this in Morrisons for £19.99 this morning, thought it was a good buy at that price.
Glad I put it back! Just ordered.

I decided not to wait another year.
I got mine through Zavvi, with Quidco & a nice little 10% off from O2 surprises it worked out at £15.20 or so inc. P&P.
I'm happy with that.
£5 an HD film?
Bargain.

You wont be saying that after you buy the trilogy and see the awful transfers.

Just buy the extended editions on dvd, same picture quality anyway pretty much.

Can't find it. Anyone got a direct link?

Got to love these people. If you cannot tell the difference between the Blu Ray and DVD versions of these movies then you need to invest in some better equipment or just stay away from Blu Ray/High Definition altogether. Either way, to come on here and tell people the transfers between the two formats are 'pretty much' the same is hilarious. Yes, the first movie is quite soft and inconsistent, looking great in places and not as great in others, but still a way better then the DVD. The second and third films look superb. Not reference quality but very good indeed. All three films also boast HD Master Audio mixes, which are also a considerable improvement over the DVD releases.
As for the debate over the cinematic and extended cuts, my opinion is that there is room for both. Yes I think ultimately is a bit of a rip off the studios releasing them both separately, both versions could have been released on the same disc with branching depending on what version you wanted to view at the time. I love the extended cuts of the movie, but I love the theatrical releases too, but not everyone who watches these wants to sit through the extended versions as they are so long.
Sorry for the little rant, but I can't stand it when people that clearly know nothing at all about a subject come onto forums and start trying to 'advise' others on it.

Thanks for that, it really helps (no I'm not being sarcastic!) I already own the 12 DVD special extended edition (didn't buy it specifically for this version, it was just a bargain at £15!) so I've been wondering if the BD version is better. I value a considered opinion rather than eliteist one so your full explanantion was really useful. However I may just wait for the extended edition so that I'm not "taking a step backwards". Still voted hot though as not everybody gives a monkey's about special editions.

This site isn't for finding the cheapest prices of every single given product on the face of the Earth, it's about finding hot deals. To you this is apparently a great deal, but some of us want a good transfer and the extended version rather than paying over £15 for a pretty shabby blu-ray box-set.

I'd rather have the extended DVD version than this. :).

Got to love these people. If you cannot tell the difference between the Blu Ray and DVD versions of these movies then you need to invest in some better equipment or just stay away from Blu Ray/High Definition altogether.

The issue is rarely that people cannot see any difference between Blu-ray and DVD, that's a total red herring, the problem is that a lot of transfers are so poor that there is little difference and the film is not the leap in quiality we were supposedly promised when high definition began.

I am an avid film collector and now have over 300 high definition films and I can say without fear of contradiction that far too many films are poorly transferred and little better (note I did not say no better) than upscalled DVD.

.....oh and before anyone leaps in with a comment about my kit it is very recent, properly calibrated and working properly.
I'd also mention that one of my mates has a new excellent 1080p projector easily able to throw an image to 100"+ and even with that (although the differences magnify with size) rubbish Blu-ray tansfers remain rubbish Blu-ray transfers.

This reminds me of the defensive nonsense talked about with Gladiator.
We were told then that it was 'better than the DVD'.
Nevertheless eventually the studio recognised that their first release was sub-standard and we finally got a high quality remaster.

The issue is not one of there being no difference it is one of the difference being too small and film studios not bothering to remaster properly.

All three films also boast HD Master Audio mixes, which are also a considerable improvement over the DVD releases.

Sadly most people do not have (and never will have) the very expensive audio package needed to even hear lossless audio done properly.
I'm lucky enough to and this is one point I would agree with, the audio is usually (although not always - some Blu-rays have only vanilla Dolby Digital audio tracks) far superior to a DVD's.

But seeing as the number of people with a set-up for DD is the minority even here too few care about this.
#24
I have a 1080p projector, the difference is easy to tell, so give it a rest.

Also this will have a soundtrack not available on ANY DVD i.e. DTS-HD or TRUE-DD

So for £15............it is a bargain........!!

Again, thanks OP.
