Customer Reviews

I truely love Lord of the Rings.
Treacherous
I could have lived with certain sound effects missing or whatever, but the dialogue cuts out often and ruins the experience.
Michael Rosenberg
Yet again, something that was right on a decades-old VHS release has been wrong on multiple iterations of the DVD.

If you're thinking of buying this mainly for "The Hobbit" - easily the best (or at least most consistent) of these three features - I'd stay away. The infamous soundtrack issues are still not fixed. This has the same missing sounds as the last DVD version. Yet again, something that was right on a decades-old VHS release has been wrong on multiple iterations of the DVD. I'm returning mine. I suggest you don't even buy yours.

It is hard to believe WB has released another version of the Rankin/Bass Hobbit with the botched soundtrack. As other reviews have noted, all DVD versions are missing numerous crucial sound effects and music and dialogue is missing or incorrectly mixed. This is one of my favorite childhood films and the only way to see it correctly is on a 1990s era VHS. This should have been fixed years ago but apparently WB absolutely does not care about this film or it's many fans.

I am hesitant for only 1 reason. The DvDs in this set have not come out, but there is one point I want to make. 1 point to rule them all;

The Animated Hobbit needs fully restored sound.

In every DvD edition half of the audio is missing. The depths of chorus music sung by a half dozen men sound like drunken duets, the dragon destroys his cave with fire and brute force and it sounds like a bunny rabbit breaking a thin sheet of styrofoam, and the wealth of the soundtrack that defined my childhood sounds like it is coming out of an iPod ear bud left on my kitchen table at a high volume. If they do not go back to AT LEAST the audio quality of the VHS, I will…………well, do nothing honestly but stew like a nerd on the internet (as I always do), but I would WANT to shove my hairy feet up someone's incompetent #%& for making this mistake 3 times in the last 15 years.

Long before Peter Jackson ever turned the world of J.R.R. Tolkien into a string of blockbusters, there were... there was ANOTHER Tolkien trilogy.

Specifically, there was a trio of animated movies based on Tolkien's "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings"... except they weren't by the same people, didn't have the same style, and didn't even cover the whole plot. And while "The Hobbit" is a fairly decent adaptation (if sometimes baffling), the two movies that address the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy are a cornucopia of poor animation, bizarre stylistic choices and strange plotting.

The Rankin-Bass "The Hobbit" follows mild-mannered Bilbo Baggins, who is invaded by a bunch of strange dwarves and the wizard Gandalf -- and then dragged on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug. But the little gang runs afoul of wargs, goblins, hostile wood-elves and a strange froglike creature called Gollum -- and worst of all, Bilbo ends up facing the dragon Smaug himself.

Ralph Bakshi's "The Lord of the Rings" takes place about sixty years later, when Bilbo suddenly vanishes during his birthday party. He's left all his possessions -- including a magical Ring of invisibility -- to his young nephew Frodo. But then Gandalf reveals to Frodo that the Ring is actually the One Ring, which contains the power and evil of the Dark Lord Sauron.... and it's made Frodo a target for the Black Riders.

So Frodo, his cousins Merry and Pippin and his creepy gardener Sam (seriously, what was Bakshi thinking?) join up with an elf, a Viking, an American Indian king-in-waiting, Gandalf and a very tall dwarf.

I only watched part of the Hobbit before I had to turn it off because the sound kept cutting out completely. I could have lived with certain sound effects missing or whatever, but the dialogue cuts out often and ruins the experience. Sadly, I'm returning my set of three movies.

I truely love Lord of the Rings. Although these animated versions are not perfect I appreciate them non the less. I remember seeing them when I was a child and they were my introduction to Middle Earth. I will charish these movies and hopfully show them to my children one day.

They are great movies, in an animated sense. They tell the basic story of Tolkien's novels. They are worth watching if you like animated versions of stories. It's interesting to do a comparison of them since they have completely different animation based on the technology of the time that they were made. The only true difference between them is that the animation changed because the directors changed and that totally changed the movies story and animation. The hobbit and The Return of the King movies were fully animated films by American directors for children. The Lord of the Rings animated version had a director born in Europe and blended Fellowship of the Ring with the Two Towers and the animation was based on live actors and wasn't proper for an animated children's tale. It was too 'dark' for children of the 70's and 80's and I'm one of them
