A tradition of excellence from New Line Home Video continues with the first release of 2001's epic The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, a DVD that quite simply takes sound, and especially picture, to a new level. The image on this disc, framed at the original aspect ration of 2.35:1 (but also available in a separate severely cropped pan-and-scan version) is stunning. Stunning might not even be enough to describe how good it looks. The Oscar-winning cinematography is perfectly realized, with solid and deep blacks and lush, wonderfully saturated colors. The sound is equally impressive with a 5.1 EX Dolby Digital English track that is startling strong. Recorded loudly, this track will certainly put all sound systems to the test with vibrant use of the surrounds and deep bass. Also available are a surround track and subtitles in English. As for supplemental materials, they are a mixed bag. The focus is on three documentaries, but there is far too much repetition among them. The longest, "A Passage To Middle-earth," at 40 minutes, is really the only one that needs to be watched, as all the information, from interviews to behind-the-scenes segments, are basically the same. A real plus are 15 featurettes taken from the original website for the film. Each lasts only a few minutes, but adds in its own distinct way. Also included is a music video from Enya, a preview of the video game for the second film, theatrical trailers and television spots, and a look at the four-disc special extended set, released three months after this two-disc set. In addition to some online DVD-ROM content is a ten-minute preview for the second film in the series, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Granted, there is a supplement-heavy special edition of this film (if you want a commentary track from director Peter Jackson, among others, better look for that one), but this release is still a outstanding presentation of a spectacular film.

I have watched the DVD version many times. Very disappointed to find many scenes removed in the Blu ray version: Elrond's council, inside Moria, in Lorien. The story has lost a lot.

I have watched so many movies... too many, maybe. But never had any of them ever etched in my mind as much as the FOTR did. The visual effects and cinematography are stunning. Every scene is breathtaking -- The Shire, Rivendell, Lothlorien, the Misty Mountains, the River Bruinen, the Great River Anduin, and even the darkest place like Moria. The casts are so perfect for their roles. The score is majestic. I have watched Beautiful Mind. How it beated the FOTR at the Academy Awards I still do not understand.

This is one of the best movies I have seen for the year so far!!!, after I saw the moview, I read the book. I must say, the book is not that much different from the movie...oviously the book is more detailed...the second part of the movie, I anticipate will be even better, because the book was a page turner.... after I had finished reading the entire book, in my mind I could envision the actual movie... the book was very clear and I can't wait to see the second part. the special effects are absolutely stunning. The directors did a great job with everything.

If you love JRR Tolkiens Lord of the Rings or fantasy/adventure you have to see Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy!! Elija Wood (Frodo), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Viggo Mortensen (Stider/Aragorn), Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Hugo Weaving (Elrond) and the others are outstanding!! This is a movie that does some justice to the book despite a few differences between them!! Excellent a must see!
