Let's pause for just a moment so I can remind everyone that on sale today is the long-awaited Blu-Ray box set of The Lord of the Rings: Extended Editions. Ever since the series finished in 2003, fans have been anxiously awaiting high def, Blu-Ray copies of the movies, and not just the theatrical editions, but the true fan-favorite Extended Editions. The best place to pick up a copy is on Amazon for $69.99 (click to support FS.net!) - that's where I got mine! I'm an all-out, die-hard Lord of the Rings fanboy and will be in a theater in Burbank tonight watching all four hours of Return of the King, so be sure to get your copy if you haven't.
Now some may say we've never, ever written about DVDs/Blu-Rays before, and that is true, and we don't. But today is a day where I make an exception because, plain and simply, I love Lord of the Rings. Return of the King is my all-time personal favorite movie and my unforgettable experience seeing these three back in 2001, 2002 and 2003 was integral in putting me on the path that brought about FirstShowing.net and got me here today. So, I feel it's only necessary to pay my continuous tribute to one of the greatest cinematic trilogies of all-time, and remind you that after eight long years, you can finally own all of them on Blu-Ray.
And for anyone concerned about the rumored "greenness" of the video that I've heard some mention, don't worry too much, as High-Def Digest still gave it a glowing 4.5/5 stars, and Blu-Ray.com also 5/5 stars, too.
