Cameron,


Outstanding job with this review.  Your opinions

on the video quality should alleviate many concerns.

Thank you for providing a detailed opinion of the

video portion of this set.


I am hoping that as more of us receive our boxed

sets over the next week that man will discover that

more was being made of this "green tint" issue than

was really necessary.  Of course, still not having

seen the presentation myself, I have no definitive

opinion to offer -- but yours joins the chorus of many

here who have already seen the set and see no major

problems.


If I may take a break here to interject some humor,

this was just posted on James Finn's Facebook page

and felt it was quite appropriate to include here:

Thank you, Cameron. Well done. And, you have given me peace of mind since the discs are on their way to me. 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Thanks, Cameron. I also hope that your more thorough deduction of the color problems alleviates consumer concerns. It's nice to hear from someone who's actually watched the blu-ray!! I do wish that over-reacting pundits would stop freaking people out about minor disc "problems" (if they really are problems) before release dates. But I guess the internet rewards the stupid and ignores the wise.

Thank you for the wonderful review.  I can't wait until later this week when I view this BRD release for myself as it seems like ages reading what other people think of it, particularly, this green issue. Crawdaddy

Cameron,


Thanks for a great and thorough review. (But I hardly dare to praise you, if that would be felt as "a reward".)

Anyone who has Amazon Prime and pre-orders this set will receive it on street date? If so, this means they would have to ship before street, which is something Amazon doesn't usually do. Just curious.
RIP Roberto Gomez Bolanos.

I have Prime and pre-ordered.  Amazon shipped it on Saturday; it's expected to arrive tomorrow.

Amazon always ships prior to street date.

Cameron, thanks for the review.  I am still hesitating to buy this set.  I don't understand at all why any changes were made to the coloring of Fellowship of the Ring. I really wish someone connected to the film would tell us why these changes were made. I wish I could rent this new Fellowship to have a look but it looks like Netflix is not planning to make either the theatrical or extended blu-rays available for rental.  At least I can't find any LOTR blu-rays listed at Netflix.

Thanks for the in-depth review, Cameron. And thanks to Ron for that photo of Ian McKellan -- very funny! I had canceled my Amazon pre-order because I will not have time to watch these films the way I like until at least August, but Amazon's recent price drop changed my mind. The set may drop in price more before the holidays, but I couldn't resist at $70.

Just a heads up to any UK readers that the Extended Edition bluray set is currently available at Tescos online for only £45 - Think I'm going to have to pull the trigger at that price! :)
