After years of waiting the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray Disc has finally hit the shelves. Peter Jackson’s masterpiece of movie making based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s even more masterful portrayal of a fictional middle earth comes as a box set of nine discs consisting of 3 Blu-rays and 6 DVDs. Unfortunately, these are the theatrical versions of the films, but you may find some consolation in the fact that the set also comes with 3 digital copies for your PC, iPod, phone, or other mobile device. The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy is formatted in 1080p VC-1 at 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Audio is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1.
