The singular most impressive film series in history takes viewers deeper into Peter Jackson's epic "The Fellowship of the Ring" in this DVD!
review by . February 25, 2004
I was not especially taken with Peter Jackson's films, but was sufficiently intrigued by them to read the story, and wasn't especially swayed by that either - Tolkein's masterwork is a heavily over-written linear, episodic chaser providing the context for a devoutly catholic (and therefore fairly block-headed) rumination on good and evil - the sort of thing you don't see too often in these post modern times (and three cheers for that).

Long had fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" novels waited for a film worth making.

There are DVDs. There are special edition DVDs. There are special edition DVDs loaded with extras. Now, there is THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING SPECIAL EXTENDED DVD EDITION. I don't think there has been anything like this in home viewing ever. It has been suggested that this Special Edition set is the closest thing one can actually get to having been a part of the movie and I would have to agree.It will take a person about two weeks of 4 hours of viewing each day to get through …
