Lord of the Rings Trilogy

All signs point to a 2009 release for this trilogy, including director Peter Jackson’s comments in the spring that he was indeed working on a Blu-ray version. However, no formal timeline has been confirmed and until I see a date, I’m still dubious. We all know several Blu-ray release have been announced and then put on hold. Not to mention a Blu-ray wish list without this epic would be immediately thrown into question. Much like Braveheart, the beauty of the filming locations in this film would be wonderful in HD (the three were filmed in New Zealand). On top of that, there’s a lot of dark scenes that pop with bright flashes of color, a true test for a video processor.

Scene Stealer – The Battle for Helm’s Deep in The Two Towers. It has everything you could want, intense battle scenes, stirring acts of bravery, awesome sound and a stirring soundtrack. The entire battle spans daytime to night and back to day, offering plenty of variations in source material, highlighted by the explosion when the Uruk-hai finally breach the wall of the fortress.
