Simply the best!
If you love the theatrical versions you love the extended version. You´ll understand the movies better. Special effects are wonderfull. I love everything about the movies esp. the Extended Edition. If you ever want to buy entertaining movies, these are the ones to get!

THE LORD OF THE RINGS
When this movie was first released, people tried to compare it to Harry Potter. The only thing similar between the two is that they are fantasy novels. Both are excellent films, but LOTR is much more mature and dark. Excellently acted, written and directed. Spectacular special effects and settings make this film believable. But don’t watch it unless you are ready to invest yourself, the story takes off quickly and similarity in names of people and places become easily confused. Well worth the time spent, and excellent book to film adaptation. The films couldn’t have been better.

You can't ask for anything more!!
This boxed set contains all three LOTR movies (Extended Edition ones) plus Appendices DVD (Containing Extras of all kinds) for a total of 12 DVDs.
-- Each movie is 2 DVDs long for a total of 6 DVDs
-- Each movie has 2 Separate Appendices DVDs for a toal of 6 DVDs
If you're a fan of the films and/or an enthusiast of Tolkien's Middle-Earth, this box set is a must to own!
The price has gone down big time since it was first released, so the Bang-for-your-Buck factor is simply to good to miss out on.
Buy it and you won't regret it. It's got so much to offer.

Good the first time you watch them
I give Peter Jackson a lot of credit for even attempting to take on a challenege as huge as LOTR. I think he has succeded wonderfully in the special effect and production design department; his WETA team has created some ground breaking CGI and the attention to detail on every single set and costume is truely amazing.
The first time I watched the trilogy I loved it, mainly because the images on the screen were so amazing and I did not know what was going to happen since I hadn't read the books. After you watch the whole trilogy and find out that Frodo does indeed complete his mission, the films lose almost all of their tension and suspense the second time you watch them. This is obviously the case with a lot of action/suspense movies that have a big climax, but I have watched many of those other movies (Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Aliens, Star Wars) multiple times and still find them very entertaining. LOTR is lacking that extra something that the other films have that prevent it from being truely great. I think Peter Jackson maybe tried to blend too mnay genres into one, trying to combine fantasy and action with drama and romance, the latter two really slowing down the story at times. I know he was trying to stay as close to the books as possible and not just turn it into an action flick, it just didn't work for me.
If you are dead set on buying the trilogy, then I do reccommend you get the extended editions instead of the theatrical release. Some of the extra scenes are cool, and they do fill in a few gaps in the story. The video bitrate is much higher than the theatrical version, buyers who have a HDTV will notice a difference. FYI: A new extended edition is planned for release on HD-DVD later this year, if you really want the best HD quality wait for that.Read full review
