Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship continue their quest to destroy the One Ring and stand against the evil of the dark lord Sauron. The Fellowship has divided and now find themselves taking different paths to defeating Sauron and his allies. Their destinies now lie at two towers - Orthanc Tower in Isengard, where the corrupted wizard Saruman waits and Sauron's fortress at Baraddur, deep within the dark lands of Mordor.
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: The final battle for Middle-earth begins. Frodo and Sam, led by Gollum, continue their dangerous mission toward the fires of Mount Doom in order to destroy the One Ring. Aragorn struggles to fulfill his legacy as he leads his outnumbered followers against the growing power of the Dark Lord Sauron, so that the Ring-bearer may complete his quest.
Jackson and cowriters Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens have much ground to cover; that they do so with intense pacing and epic sweep is impressive enough, but by investing greater depth and consequence in the actions of fellow Hobbits Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd), they ensure that Return of the King maintains the trilogy's emphasis on intimate fellowship. While several major characters appear only briefly, and one (Christopher Lee's evil wizard, Saruman) relegated entirely to the extended version on DVD, Jackson is to be commended for his editorial acumen; like Legolas the archer, his aim as a filmmaker is consistently true, and he remains faithful to Tolkien's overall vision. If Return suffers from too many endings, as some critic suggested, it's only because the epic's conclusion is so loyally inclusive of the actors--most notably Astin--who gave it such strength to begin with. By ending the LOTR trilogy with noble integrity and faith in the power of imaginative storytelling, The Return of the King, like its predecessors, will stand as an adventure for the ages. --Jeff Shannon
Great set at an amazing price. It's good to watch after one of the Hobbit movies just to remind yourself of a time when PJ cared about Middle Earth.Published 7 hours ago by jared owens
I purchased this set back in 2011. The product sat on my shelf for 4 years still in shrink wrap. After all I had seen the theatrical released many times before and even had them... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Juan J. Casero

|how about a review on the BLU RAY quality?||
Wait - you want "reviews" to be about the products themselves?
You're blowing my mind, dude.
You should suggest this paradigm shift to the powers-that-be at Amazon.

|Peter Jackson - Theatrical Editions are DEFINITIVE versions of the LOTR...||
I'm a big fan of the theatrical versions but after seeing the extended versions it's hard to go back and watch the originals. It feels like something's missing. I want to buy a definitive blu-ray version of LOTR that has both versions. The argument seems to be that the consumers should be... Read More

|LOTR Blu-Ray buyer beware possible corporate cover up in progress!||
It says THEATRICAL EDITIONS right in the product title!
How much of a dunce does someone have to be to not notice that?
These thousands of one-star "reviews" are not warnings for unsuspecting buyers, and you know it. They are just the whining of spoiled babies.
Reviews are for the... Read More

|Extended Editions to be released with "The Hobbit" in 2011||
It just seems like a very odd move. It was understandable when they released the DVD Theatrical Edition first and then the Extended; that's a normal, if rather sleazy, way of getting people to buy it twice (I did myself). However, as others have pointed out, nearly all hardcore LOTR fans vastly... Read More

|Amazon raised price of LOTR Theatrical Edition Blu-ray set to $84.99||
it was a black friday doorbuster at target and target.com for $7.99
Kind of shocked Amazon jacked the price back up. Figured with Target selling it so cheap it might be a precursor to an announcement of the Extended Editions possibly being released in the near future. I guess maybe not
