    Zzzzzzz these films put me to sleep

    •  

      This movie could just be shorten to become one movie. They drag the movie out to so long and after watching the first one, i already had enough of this slow pace plot

        There is a condensed fan version on the internet and it is excellent! All three movies in the length of one movie, it's the version to watch.

    There's a trilogy of these movies?

    Saw them recently all in a row at the cinema. They are actually FAR better than I remembered.

    •  

      Still super silly how they made this short story a Trilogy.

      I say this as a MASSIVE fanboy of the universe.

    There's an edited down to only 4 hour custom version of all 3 movies - it's better than the 3 combined and it's still only ok.

      Brilliant!

      Where can you get that?

        I can't recall the name, google it, it's out there.

  •  

    Yeah I liked them as well. Probably even more than the Lord of the rings trilogy. Mainly cause I watched LOTR a few times already.

    I cheaped out though and got the 4K extended digital release - its also on discount:

    Good god. The Hobbit should have been a single film as it is and they made an extended version of the three part feature?

    I can't say I was able to watch more than 60 minutes of the first part before turning it off in boredom.

  •  

    Got it for $32 from JB in February. They had some coupon stacks so Hobbit 4K ended up being $32.04 and LOTR 4k was $71.28

    •  

      There was also a buy 1 get 1 free promo, where you paid $99.00 for lotr and got the hobbit free. So slightly cheaper.

      •  

        That's when I bit the bullet.

  •  

    There's a better version of the LOTR 4K set coming later this year, I think. Does anybody know if the same is true for the Hobbit one, or is this as good as it's going to get?

    •  

      The only difference between the set that's coming later is the inclusion of extras, which have already been included in every other box set in the past.

      In terms of the films, nothing is expected to change between these already released 4K remasters.

      •  

        Yeah, but those extras on the LOTR extended editions were pretty damn good. Just wondering if the same holds true for the Hobbit movies ie do the current versions lack the extras, and is there a forthcoming set that will include them?

        Doesn't really matter to me since the Hobbit movies bored me sh*tless and I wouldn't buy them, extras or not. But it might be useful info to people who are interested in them - they might be better of skipping this deal if there's a better edition not too far off.

    An unexpected bargain

  •  

    If it was LotR this would be a fine deal as is however: pass. Google play has the three extended Lotr movies at 4k for $37.99 but I don't think that includes the extras like the behind the scenes :(

    No 3D, no deal. I saw the first one at the cinema and it was the first time I watched a 3d movie without getting a headache. 3D done properly

    • +4 votes

      I remember seeing these at a cinema that had the 3D 48FPS and I enjoyed the unique experience. I didn't want all movies to be like that, but it certainly was a different cinematic experience to have.

      Agree the 3D Blu-ray set is the way to go with this one it was really well done and a must own plenty of replay value for mine.

      Do people still have 3D tv's though? I think that format is dead

      • +2 votes

        People who blindly go and buy the latest TV without thinking about what's available and how they can enjoy it, yes for them it's dead :) for the connoisseurs among us it's not quite

        3D tellys don't do justice to 3D content you need a decent 3D projector setup imo to really get into it. It sucks that 3D blu-rays are pretty much done away with now. 3D when done properly adds a whole another dimension, quite literally. Whereas 4K yeah it's nice but doesn't add that much to the overall experience. It's missing that wow factor. Maybe in the near future VR can step in where 3D left off.

        3D projector is the way to go. Have these in 3D so no sale on the 4K for me…

    A heavy recommendation to try a 'fan edit' that squeezes all the movies into 1 or 2 shorter films. I tried this one and it was really good: http://www.maple-films.com/faq.html

    I'd pay money to avoid seeing those movies again….
