The Lord of the Rings Deluxe Edition/The Hobbit Deluxe Edition/The Return of the King Deluxe Edition/ (3-Pack/Giftset/DVD)
Controversial animator Ralph Bakshi's literal adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, is brought to the screen. An evil sorcerer from a previous era created a magical ring which enables its users to call upon its tremendous powers to rule the world, but it inevitably warps them to evil. It was believed lost, but during a resurgence of magical evil in the world, Bilbo, a simple, plain-spoken hobbit, recovers it from its hiding place. The forces of good give his nephew Frodo the choice to bear the awful burden of the ring to a place where it may be destroyed. The place is Middle Earth. The time is long ago, when humans shared their days with elves, wizards, goblins, dragons, heroes…and hobbits. Bilbo Baggins is a hero and a hobbit, a roundish, peaceable homebody going on a dangerous quest - even though adventures make hobbits late for dinner! In this enchanting adaptation of the first installment of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Bilbo the hobbit is asked to recover a fabulous treasure stolen from friendly dwarfs. All he must do is brave dark forests, towering mountains, hobbit-eating trolls, huge spiders, a fiery dragon and more. Fun and amazement await - so join the quest! Frodo the Hobbit, the remarkable hero of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, battles more evil forces plaguing Middle Earth in The Return of the King. The Magic Ring of The Hobbit has now become the Ring of Doom - and to restore peace it must be destroyed in the raging fires in which it was made. Chosen for the task, Frodo and faithful servant Samwise face grave perils - the worst of which is the ring's terrible power to possess its wearer. Will Frodo give in to the madness of the ring....or will he fulfill his quest?]]>

As of this date I have only watched "The Hobbit," and I noticed several sound effects and musical effects were missing. Smaug was missing his roar over Laketown, the flapping of the Thrush as it spoke to Bard, all missing. At first I thought it was a setting on our player, but that turned out to not be the case. Seems that we were not the first or seemingly the last to find these issues.
In all, the movie is still enjoyable, but these missing bits strike memories that I have tried to share, but the experience is sadly, lacking.
P.S both the books and these animated stories was the best part of my childhood with my parents im glad warner put these out and hope one day they give us a ton of goodies from a dusty archive....
Well, no brainer.
