Honestly, I like the new edition. The colors have a more striking quality when you watch the feature and it gives the image more contrast compared to the more blown out look of the original. I can honestly see why Peter would have changed it. The only think I find objectionable to that scene in general is when Boramear (misspelled) is holding the ring on the chain and looking at it. You can see a bit of color bleed on his stray hairs above his head. They look a bit cyan, even compared to the sky.

I still think most will LOVE this new transfer, it really is a huge improvement over the TE BD release.

Why do so many directors feel the need to go back and fix things that aren't broken?

They probably had to use black cases because they used up all the blue tinting TFOTR...






Spoiler:
[Just kidding, I am really looking forward to getting this set when I spot a good price.]

I can easily wait for the Hobbit+LOTR mega-set, and even then, if the colors are "off" again, I may just buy The Hobbit.


No excuse for switching discs in blu-Ray, IMO.

Via Robert Harris at the HTF, the official answer to the infamous and highly controversial "green tint" question on FOTR...

"This just in from Warner Home Video:

"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™ was remastered from the original digital production files in order to reproduce the full color imagery of the feature.”

Some will like it, some will hate it, some will be in-between...but it looks like this color scheme isn't being changed on the new disc.

^ Mr. Cinema already posted that...

Anyway, I still think it looks off but whatever. I'm not getting this set until it drops in the $45 range ($15 per film seems reasonable).

Yeah...it's a Warner corporate statement; it doesn't mention Jackson specifically saying he intended it but he sure isn't going to come out now and say he disagrees with WB.

I interpret it as "we're not changing it...maybe next release."

I obviously haven't watched the disc, but based on what I've seen online I'd say I fall in the "in between" camp. I think some scenes look improved and some worse.

I'm waiting for a price drop also. This will probably be $45 or less by Black Friday.

Sorry about the double post. I checked but must have glanced right past it.

Wasn't there some other post that stated Peter Jackson and the cinematography both approved the transfer?

Well then...whoever calibrated the TV or screen they watched needs to be fired, shot, hung and shot again.

No shit, I watched the first disc tonight and I thought it looked incredible. I was looking for green tint and saw nothing but the perfect image I remembered. Very, very happy!

Wow!


All right... I'm sure this announcement is going to liven-up discussion around the Interwebs. As many of you are aware, Warner's new Blu-ray release of The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy - Extended Edition finally arrives in stores tomorrow. It's a damn fine box set, that we think you'll all enjoy (see our review here). Meanwhile, a few of you may be aware that there's been some controversy regarding screenshots and the color timing of the new 2K-remastered presentation of Fellowship of the Ring. Our feeling here at The Bits is that it's been blown out of proportion, as things tend to be these days. However, just to be sure, we started a process a couple weeks ago (before we posted our review) to encourage Warner Home Video and Wingnut Films to investigate the matter to make sure that the discs streeting tomorrow truly and accurately represent the creative vision of director Peter Jackson and cinematographer Andrew Lesnie. That process has been on-going, involving Wingnut and the filmmakers, and it appears it's finally concluded. Here's the studio's official statement on the issue, as of this afternoon:
So Bill started the process before the discs even arrived in peoples hands. Wowee! And someone else said, the shill must have a time machine.

Screenshots have been floating around on the web for some time. I believe they started popping up around the 1st week in June. Does anyone here know for sure?

Nahh, it's just fun to point out all the shit he talks about.

I'll take Bill Hunt's entirely innocuous and respectful blatherings over Gizmo's perennial quest to invent another reason to complain about him, every time.

Looks to me like what he posted is correct. Screen shots showing the difference between the EE and TE blu were posted around the first week of June. That would have been more than two weeks ago and before he posted his review.

Shocked the guy who hangs on every word that they spit out, #3 poster in the Insider Thread (now locked - did they stop getting paid?), would take his word. I don't care either way. I don't own this set and never will. I especially will make sure not to support them when the slather puke all over the encode and call it an upgrade. If I want to see green, I'll watch Troll 2.

But hey, no worries. Warner likely does not want to do a recall but may eventually like Paramount did with Gladiator.

How many times a day to you check his site? I didn't even know about that post until you posted it here and I was there a couple times today. You only seem to pop in to post about him.

Never. Reading the HDD thread and someone posted the response.
