    According to The Registers review here they remastered it once more: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: Blu-ray extended edition ? reghardware

    Interestingly, Fellowship has been remastered following its first appearance on Blu-ray, with changes to its colour grading and tone. Some consider this controversial, but to my eyes the end result looks fabulous. When Gandalf returns to the shire (Chapter 3), the screen explodes with vibrancy.
    This should have fixed it. I'm going to wait to see if it's on offer about Christmas time I think

    when is the remastered 3D special edition with cherries on top released?

    Is Jackson becoming the new Lucas?

    Leaves a Bad taste in your mouth.

    Something else which is quite annoying is the fact the each film is still split over two Blu-ray discs (each part being ~30GB). Thankfully there is a way to combine them.

    If only we had 1TB Blu-Violet-Ray discs.

    I'm betting when The Hobbit (parts I & II) are released on Blu-ray so they can sell a special edition boxset for 100+ which also includes the extended editions of LOTR's. Most likely in 2014.

    Say what now? You mean even though they're blu-ray discs, I have to change the disc halfway through the film? Was in two minds whether to bother with LOTR, the novelty has kind of worn off for me, but I think this decides it.

    As much as I want it, I cant see why I should... I bought all the extended collector versions when they came out on dvd, so I have all of the 'extras'. I cant really justify paying 50 quid for a movie that I already own, :-/

    It's now down to 30 at your local Tesco store. It pays to wait (and the reason why I never buy Blu-ray's on the day they are released).

    Was about to say the same thing. So we've already maxed out blu-ray What a waste of time that was eh

    Anyone remember having to change discs on VCDs and SVCDs and what a success they were?
