NewsReal Blog Film Club: Is It Now Time to Buy The Lord of the Rings Trilogy?

Posted By NewsReal Blog On April 11, 2010 @ 6:00 am In NewsReal Blog | No Comments

NRB’s Managing Editor David Swindle used to be a film critic. He’s still a cinema enthusiast and DVD/Blu Ray collector.

“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy came out on Blu Ray on Tuesday. He had this to say:

Most reviews of the set are pretty negative for one reason: the films released are the theatrical editions, not the “extended” cuts that are much longer. LOTR fans are claiming that New Line Cinema is trying to pull the wool over their eyes by getting them to buy this trilogy and then a Blu Ray version of the extended cuts.

But I have this thought: for non-LOTR obsessives who merely like the movies (*raises hand*) maybe it’s better to just get the original theatrical cuts? I haven’t gotten around to actually buying the trilogy yet. Perhaps this edition is the one for those of us who don’t dress up like elves and wizards when we want to watch the film?
