DVD ROM Features
While it may seem that there would be nothing left to say after the bevy of features on the extended Fellowship, the four commentary tracks and two discs of supplements on The Two Towers remain informative, fascinating, and funny, far surpassing the recycled materials on the two-disc theatrical version. Highlights of the 6.5 hours' worth of documentaries offer insight on the stunts, the design work, the locations, and the creation of Gollum, and--most intriguing for rabid fans--the film's writers (including Jackson) discuss why they created events that weren't in the book. Providing variety are animatics, rough footage, countless sketches, and a sound-mixing demonstration. Again, the most interesting commentary tracks are by Jackson and writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens and by 16 members of the cast (eight of whom didn't appear in the first film, and even including John Noble, whose Denethor character only appears in this extended cut). The first two installments of Peter Jackson's trilogy have established themselves as the best fantasy films of all time, and among the best film trilogies of all time, and their extended-edition DVD sets have set a new standard for expanding on the already-epic films and providing comprehensive bonus features. --David Horiuchi
This is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen.
Okay now the bad part now: many people will probably say this movie is no good because it is just too much fun for it to be right for one man to enjoy.
These movies were very well done; good actors, great special effects (especially for being several years old now).
My favorite of the trilogy. The Battle of Helm's Deep is a masterpiece. I fast forward through the Frodo stuff. Not sold on Elijah Wood and his bug-eyed pathos.Published 4 days ago by FlyingFish
