REGION 2 DVD (U.K Release)
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Special Extended DVD Edition) [DVD] 
Very Good Condition
In every aspect, the extended edition of Peter Jackson's epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
is superior to the theatrical version
No-one who cares at all about the film should ever need to watch the
original again. Well, maybe the impatient and the squeamish will still
prefer it, because this extended edition makes a long film 30 minutes
longer and there's a wee bit more violence. But the changes--sometimes
whole scenes, sometimes merely a few seconds--make for a richer film.
There's more of the spirit of JRR Tolkien, embodied in more songs and a
longer opening focusing on Hobbiton. There's more character development,
and more background into what is to come in the two subsequent films,
such as Galadriel's gifts to the Fellowship and Aragorn's burden of
lineage. Some additions make more sense to the plot while others are
merely worth seeing, such as the wood elves leaving Middle-earth or the
view of Caras Galadhon (but sorry, there's still no Tom Bombadil).
On the DVDs: The Fellowship of the Ring--Extended Version comes in two distinct packages: choose either the four-disc set itself, handsomely presented in a hardback book-style fold-out, or the huge and more expensive Collector's Box Set,
which has the same four-disc set accompanied by two chunky "polystone"
sculpted Argonath bookends, both of which are solid enough to support
either your DVD or Tolkien book collection. The discs themselves have
extremely useful chapter menus that indicate which scenes are new or
extended. The only drawback is that the film is now spread over two
discs, with a somewhat abrupt break following the council at Rivendell,
due to the storage capacity required for the longer running time, the
added DTS ES 6.1 audio, and the commentary tracks. But that's a minor
inconvenience. Of the four commentaries those with the greatest
general appeal are the one by Jackson with cowriters Fran Walsh and
Philippa Boyens, and the one by 10 cast members; but the more
technically orientated commentaries by the creative and production staff
are also worth hearing.
The bonus features (encompassing two
complete DVDs) are far superior to the largely promotional materials
included on the theatrical release, delving into such matters as script
development, casting, and visual effects. This extended edition DVD set
is the Fellowship to rule them all.
