Description:
============
The extended editions of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings present the greatest trilogy in film history in the most ambitious sets in DVD history. In bringing J.R.R. Tolkien's nearly unfilmable work to the screen, Jackson benefited from extraordinary special effects, evocative New Zealand locales, and an exceptionally well-chosen cast, but most of all from his own adaptation with co-writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, preserving Tolkien's vision and often his very words, but also making logical changes to accommodate the medium of film. While purists complained about these changes and about characters and scenes left out of the films, the almost two additional hours of material in the extended editions (about 11 hours total) help appease them by delving more deeply into Tolkien's music, the characters, and loose ends that enrich the story, such as an explanation of the Faramir-Denethor relationship, and the appearance of the Mouth of Sauron at the gates of Mordor. In addition, the extended editions offer more bridge material between the films, further confirming that the trilogy is really one long film presented in three pieces (which is why it's the greatest trilogy ever--there's no weak link). The scene of Galadriel's gifts to the Fellowship added to the first film proves significant over the course of the story, while the new Faramir scene at the end of the second film helps set up the third and the new Saruman scene at the beginning of the third film helps conclude the plot of the second.

To top it all off, the extended editions offer four discs per film: two for the longer movie, plus four commentary tracks and stupendous DTS 6.1 ES sound; and two for the bonus material, which covers just about everything from script creation to special effects. The argument was that fans would need both versions because the bonus material is completely different, but the features on the theatrical releases are so vastly inferior that the only reason a fan would need them would be if they wanted to watch the shorter versions they saw in theaters (the last of which, The Return of the King, merely won 12 Oscars). The LOTR extended editions without exception have set the DVD standard by providing a richer film experience that pulls the three films together and further embraces Tolkien's world, a reference-quality home theater experience, and generous, intelligent, and engrossing bonus features.

You know that bit with the goblins and goo, well it makes me want to hurl. Couldn't they at least have put some less gruesome effects in? :/

Hiya, Please could someone clarify something for me
I know there is the theatrical release - limited special features, no extra scenes

Thanks for any help!

It may be - but if you have a decent AV setup the Extended edition's DTS-ES 6.1 tracks are worth the extra.

I noticed this earlier today on powerplaydirect and I was going to post it as I couldn't see the offer on the site. A quick search revealed that someone had bumped this thread from the last time. I'm glad this offer is back as I missed it last time it was on.

Great price!!!

Well that's what the search function is there for. :) I had been tracking the price of this set for some weeks now. Cheers.

I originally bought this set when it first came out a couple of years ago The RRP was £64.99. I bought it online for the then bargain price of £40.49 from HMV. I had problems playing the discs and ended up returning two sets. I later realised the problem I had was with my player and not the discs. I haven't bought this set again until now for the bargain £16.99.

I don't think this offer is getting many views. Maybe people see the old thread and don't realise that the offer is back on again.
If you want it don't hang around. I doubt it will last long. I myslef missed it when it was last at this price.
