This blog post is part of The Film That Started It All Blogathon on Let’s Go To The Movies. Getting people to really have a look at a film that they believe started a true love, passion and obsession towards films. I wanted to make sure we focus on the good and get away from the negative comments mainly on Twitter, love film!
When I was thinking about this Blogathon something I actually had a similar draft saved from a couple of years ago, only one film was in my mind. That being Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. I guess I could have combined the whole trilogy but I am going to only focus on that first part and the start of a truly epic journey for cinema watching and then the extended edition released on DVD and now I own on Blu-Ray as well, hoping for 4K UHD one day!

In the past couple of days it has been announced that the biggest ultimate edition of Middle Earth is going to be available. That includes all three Lord of the Rings films and all three of The Hobbit films.
On both Blu Ray and DVD extended and theatrical editions, as well as codes to download the digital versions of all films as well. A truly incredible thing that I would just love, but the price is a bit crazy $799.99! I haven’t currently found anything about the UK release.
Apparently though this is not the ultimate edition Peter Jackson wants us fans to have, he had something else in mind with new footage and special features. Maybe we have to hope that will still happen!
Lets face it I have been waiting for it to be announced when the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition was going to be released on Blu-Ray since getting my PS3 to play Blu-Rays on. I did not want to buy the theatrical versions like I did with the DVDs and decided to just wait for the Blu-Ray to come out!
June 27th 2011
That is the date when the Blu-Ray extended edition is to be released and I am definitely going to pre-order this! Over the past few months I had decided not to buy DVDs anymore and even Blu-Rays (until they become cheaper of course). But Lord of the Rings is the reason I love cinema and films so much. I have to own the extended versions on Blu-Ray!
