Excerpt: After a couple years I have been impressed by 2 and 3's Blu releases. Fellowship's interweb controversy made me pass on purchase and kept me spinning my beloved DVD EEs. And boy that's looking kind of blurry.. Now let's just give this a chance, yes? I got this mainly for the image upgrade and I'm pleased to write that this image is simply beautiful and stunning. The remastering brings out a warmth and a feeling that THIS IS Middle Earth! The book's pages coming to life.
Excerpt: I found "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" to be dazzlingly cinematic and intellectually engaging, and the casting is superb. Stunning location shooting and terrific special effects bring Tolkien's novel to vivid life on the screen. Because of the density of the material, I enjoyed this movie even better on DVD than in the theater.
Summary: okay it is not long until the hobbit come's out so let's review lord of the rings.lord of the rings the fellowship of the ring.this movie is a classic I mean the score and the visual effect's are amazing.
Excerpt: Jackson's realisation of the first of the Lord of the Rings books is one of those rare instances where everything from casting to production design, music, editing, cinematography and location come together to such stunning effect that the minor quibbles with the film feel like redundant trivialities.
Excerpt: An utterly brilliant masterpiece on every level, Peter Jackson delivered way beyond all possible expectations one of the greatest movies ever made- period. "Fellowship Of The Ring", like the equally brilliant "Two Towers", "Return Of The King" and underrated "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", puts you right in the middle of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and never lets you even think about the real world for three straight hours.
Excerpt: Fellowship is most likely my favorite of the trilogy, because it has all the elements of Towers and Return, but has better pacing and I just love the all round introduction and the inception of this remarkable story. Peter Jackson is a great visual director, and I think his other works are underrated, too. King Kong was decent and The Lovely Bones had great acting and depth. He's made himself aware through his style that he knows how to film something for the fanboys.
Summary: This is my favorite of the trilogy. The film creates a charming group of characters in its Hobbit cast and the world of Tolkien feels fresh and intriguing. Plus, some of the scariest moments of the trilogy are the arrival of the evil Nazgul in the unassuming world of the Shire, as well as the grotesque orc armies that descend upon Middle Earth.
Excerpt: The new color timing of Fellowship is much more accurate than the timing of the DVD EE's several years back. On all the closeups of Frodo's face in the opening scenes of Hobbiton Frodo's face is less pink and contrasty and the "inserts" don't feel like inserts anymore. Bravo! This is the only film in the trilogy that doesn't suffer from having the extras added--no extra singing, no extra speeches.
