Description

Sometimes a reference is all we need to understand a relationship, and while it's always great to get more Sean Bean, it is done here at the sake of the coherency of the film. To complete the extended versions of each film, new score was added by Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore and hundred of new digital effects were created.

In fact, the villains in the story become their fear, in a sense, their inability to control their actions and/or minds. Lazy, really, almost as lazy as the gifts given to members for no reason other than to be used later in the story. So, sadly, what may be the finest long cut of the trilogy is (there is no may be's or possibly's here) the weakest visually, with completely unnecessary little "fixes" that don't quite fix anything. Soon, the Fellowship is broken, and while the other members fight off the evil spreading through Middle-earth, Frodo and his friend Samwise must continue their dangerous mission, with a guide they cannot trust, toward the fires of Mount Doom as the final battle for Middle-earth begins. But all that goes well for the film is discarded by a repetitive narrative that ruins any real drama.

Elijah Wood is spectacular, again, as the pint-sized bling bearer, as his descent into madness and paranoia is very believable, as is his sheer exhaustion. The big to-do on this first film in the series, the talk of the movie forums and blogs, is the color timing, so let's just hop right into that before anything else.

The saga of 'The Lord of the Rings' is timeless, with analogy and parable mixed in beautifully with action, adventure, and a slight hint of romance. There is no comparing the Extended Edition Blu-ray of 'Fellowship' to the previous release, though, as, hands down, this new edition thoroughly and regularly trumps its shorter cousin mercilessly. There is little doubt in my mind that this tint effects the entire run time, but for some reason or another, some sequences become blatantly obvious while others are still pretty darned passable, as there are many sequences where there is no tint in sight, with believable grays and whites. Yes same extras, A quick way to assess whether the green tint bothers you is to watch one of the outdoor snow scenes in Fellowship. The moment any situation looks dire, never fear, another army will appear to lessen the load and spread out the enemies.Now, with the Blu-rays of the Extended Editions falling into consumer hands earlier than street date, controversy again would erupt. The adventure continues with THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy when, with the help of the Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo Baggin’s nephew, Frodo, embarks on a perilous mission to destroy the One Ring and defeat the Dark Lord Sauron and his forces.

Pick the commentary option in the special features, and while each track has a generic name, there is a further pop up that shows who is in it, and what their capacity in the film was.The tracks are extremely good, covering the making of these films from a number of angles often overlooked in commentaries, and in far greater detail too. For more about The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy and the The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Blu-ray release, see the The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Blu-ray Review published by Kenneth Brown on June 17, 2011 where this Blu-ray release scored 5.

What's on display here is the most film-like appearance of the trilogy, even if it has a few minor troubles.

No words can change this problem, be it an intentional change or a mishap, unless they are the phrase Paramount has had to utter quite often with their Sapphire Series: disc exchange. Suffice it to say, with so much ground to cover, there simply isn't a more efficient and thorough way to cover the full 15-disc Extended Edition release. Is 'The Fellowship of the Ring' tainted, or tinted, in a greenish, sometimes cyan hue, in ways that it was not on the previous Blu-ray release? Again, it's presented in widescreen but isn't anamorphic, so you may want to "zoom in" on the footage to properly enjoy it on your HD display. It shows that one need not face their challenges, as when it looks most serious, there will be someone to bail them out.
