I've heard aboutt his but haven't had the time to watch it yet.  I heard it was made for $3000 US dollars.

Watched the EE Blu Rays on Friday and Saturday.  The "endings" of ROTK still fill my eyes with tears every time I see it.  Especially when Aragorn bends his knee to the Hobbits...man

The EEs are great too, really flesh out the rest of the story.  I found TTT to drag a little more than I remembered.  Great great great stuff and it really has me looking forward to The Hobbit more than ever.

I actually started watching these last night.  We got a late start and only watched the first half of Fellowship, but the transfer looks phenomenal and the effects held up in HD better than I expected.  We're going to finish Fellowship tonight and then watch the rest this weekend.

I ordered the EE Blu-ray with some extra Amazon gift card dollars I had left over.  Should be delivered today... now to find time and sit and watch them.

I know this is an old thread but thought I'd bump in case anyone still is in need of the EE Blu-ray set.  Amazon has it up on a 1-day flash sale for $29.99:

Great price considering it was $120 when it first came out...

Yeah I got it for $37 and free shipping last month, and man it's incredible to own it in HD and play it on the big screen.  The kids want to marathon it with me, which I did once before and it was almost enough to turn your brain to mush, but it was an experience...  They want to do this before The Hobbit too.   ::)

It's up there with Star Wars to me, so owning it was a no-brainer.

Thanks for that.  I've only owned the regular DVD EE editions up to now so that'll be a nifty addition to the 80" Sharp.   :)

And I thought the $50 I paid for the Blu-Rays a few years ago was a good deal...

I've actually been meaning to marathon these for the longest time but have just never gotten around to it. I haven't seen TTT or ROTK in well over a decade. I didn't quite care for the first two Hobbits but I'm dragging myself to see the third so I suppose now would be a good time to do so.

I had only owned the DVD EE's so it seemed like the best time to get these, finally.  They also had the Star Wars Blu-ray set for $80 so I got that to go along with it.  Hopefully this will be the last time I have to buy these until they are converted to Ultra 4K HD versions once the technology is available  :P

The boys are still too young to be able to see LOTR, but once they are able, I can't wait to marathon these and the SW movies.  Will definitely be a lot of fun when the time comes.
