About

Lord of the Rings Trilogy Blu-Ray



Yes I have seen it and I'm nearly positive every reader has as well.  However, they have now released this epic series in Blu-Ray.  I've already purchased it as in Hi-Definition audio and video, this movie will blow anyone and their system away.  Hell it did even before the Blu-ray.  Throughout this post, if you wish to purchase any version just click the picture.

There are several options to pick this up.  Personally, I say why waste time?  Just get The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended Edition + Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]
@ nearly half the retail price.

You can buy them separately if you like but really?  What good is this movie without all of them?  It would be blasphemy to attempt to watch one and none of the others!







For those rebellious types who like to do it their way.....
You can purchase them separately here:(Fellowship of the ring, The Two Towers and Return of the King...in that order)

There is also The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Theatrical Editions + Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] This edition doesn't carry with it the extended versions or the special features. (It is substantially cheaper.)










Now really there is only one thing missing from these new editions.  That Elf Arwen really had unharnessed potential.
