two towers (extended edition disc 1 runtime)

Highlights of the 6.5 hours' worth of documentaries offer insight on the stunts, the design work, the locations and the creation of Gollum and--most intriguing for avid fans--the film's writers (including Jackson) discuss why they created events that weren't in the book. There is of course much more in the extended editions, as the title suggests, but also it simply includes more original dialogue and some of the beautiful poetry and song, which I always felt was Tolkien's particular talent. I hunted high and low for this after buying a new BluRay player. This becomes a satisfying way to explore the places and artifacts of the film, and “Designing” works nicely. Finally, “Abandoned Concepts” lets us look at two topics in gallery form.

• “Big-atures”  Documentary I emailed support about it. In case you haven't gathered, this movie is visually stunning, literally breathtaking. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2017.

A cool split-screen piece appears via “Andy Serkis Animation Reference”. Some of the better moments relate the details about the warg battle, digital doubles, TreeBeard and the other Ents, and virtual armies. Disc Four receives the title “The Battle for Middle-earth Begins” and divides into six smaller sections after a 65-second Introduction from Elijah Wood; it serves the same purpose as Jackson’s opening on Disc Three. In this 25-minute and 19-second piece, we get comments from Peter Jackson, Barrie Osborne, Rick Porras, Philippa Boyens, David Salo, composer Howard Shore, executive music producer Paul Broucek, and score engineer John Kurlander. J.R.R. The image boasted stunning definition, as even the tiniest elements came across as tight and well-defined. “Design Team” remains informative and useful. While it includes a reasonable amount of useful material, it tosses in too much praise and happy talk. While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.

Jackson also tosses out other funny remarks like his ideas for spin-off TV shows. It’s a fun bit. It seems less rollicking than the Fellowship commentary, mostly because this one splits the hobbits.

In addition to the scads of on-set footage, we get comments from Barrie Osborne, unit production manager Zane Weiner, Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen, Dominic Monaghan, Andrew Lesnie, John Rhys-Davies, Peter Jackson, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Sala Baker, Karl Urban, Orlando Bloom, Mark Ordesky, Bernard Hill, Miranda Otto, Andy Serkis, Richard Taylor, Brad Dourif, Carrie Thiel, John Mahaffie, Jed Brophy, Sean Bean, David Wenham, Rick Porras, Craig Parker, Lani Jackson, George M. Ruge, Philippa Boyens, and physical effects supervisor Steve Ingram. On the top, this 106-second clip shows Serkis as he performs the confrontation between Smeagol and Gollum; the bottom offers the final film footage. Synopsis:

And among the many other additions, there's an extended epilogue that might not have worked in cinemas, but is more effective here in setting up The Return of the King. At times we watch Richard Taylor as he walks through the different props and other things and tells us about them. Overall, the image of The Two Towers appeared immaculate. Brilliantly adapted from the book and the extended cuts are well worth it , New Zealand is a perfect backdrop for the tale and Peter Jackson weaves his magic between CGI and attention to detail . • Introduction from Peter Jackson We hear from Peter Jackson, Rick Porras, Elijah Wood, Barrie Osborne, Mark Ordesky, editor Mike Horton, additional editor Jabez Olssen, co-producer Jamie Selkirk, and supervising digital colorist Peter Doyle.

We get a great look at how the animators used Serkis’ work as the guideline for their interpretation. Despite those elements, the track includes a great deal of interesting material.

An insomniac office worker and a devil-may-care soapmaker form an underground fight club that evolves into something much, much more. Unfortunately, the awards people had no way of telling which personality would turn up to recieve the award, and if it was Gollum instead of Sméagol that went up to give the speech, they felt it would have just given off all the wrong messages. The climax is one the best things I've experienced in cinema, and it retains its power in the extended form.

The soundfield appeared very active and involving.

Writing Credits: Director: DIgital Version - 5.1 Sound track is not working, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 February 2020. But essentially, this is why Andy Serkis deserved the Oscar to begin with and frankly it is the greatest travesty since the Oscars began.

In addition, 23 of the elements provide commentaries; we hear from Mahy, Wootten, Falconer, Rivers, and Beswarick.

For me this is the superior cut of this film - GREAT drama all round and additions which allow everything to breathe. Tagline: --David Horiuchi. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Extended Edition The opening scene of The Two Towers provides an outstanding, yet very brief, taste of action, cinematography, and special effects, only to be matched (and far surpassed) in the final hour of the film.

I’ll discuss the supplements in the appropriate area of this review, but here I’ll chat a little about the movie itself. Price: $119.98 Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. All four sat together for the 2001 flick, whereas the break up here. These were less substantial in terms of audio, but the lossless DTS-HD mix seemed a bit bolder and smoother. Next we find a Design Team track that includes remarks from production designer Grant Major, Weta Workshop creative supervisor Richard Taylor, conceptual designer/set decorator Alan Lee, conceptual designer John Howe, supervising art director/set decorator Dan Hennah, art department manager Chris Hennah, and Weta Workshop manager Tania Rodger.

It comes as something of a surprise that Towers actually outgrossed Fellowship by $26 million; I guess the home video release of the latter created enough new fans to more fully support the theatrical take of the former. The other section of the “Galleries” features “The Realms of Middle-earth”. For Fellowship, I thought the production/post-production commentary was the least interesting of the four, but here it arguably stands as the second best of the bunch. It’s my least favorite of the four, but that’s not really a negative since the other three are so good. The three-minute and 19-second clip shows Porras in the “gimp suit” as he acts as Gollum stand-in for some second unit photography.

From early conceptual art to specifics of locations and sets and props, we get lots of information about these topics. Though this might seem dry, the commentary actually comes across as nicely lively and engaging. Anyway, the film is of course excellent and the quality of the transfer is amazing - the sound too is excellent. Since Blu-ray’s potential best is much better than DVD’s top, that made this version of Towers superior. Already a long movie, the “extended edition” adds 44 minutes to the flick. • “The Realms of Middle-earth” Galleries, Disc Four I liked the fact it offered so many notes about the visual design rather than simply “nuts and bolts” issues. Box Office: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on these Blu-ray Discs. The TT was conspicuous by its absence...after a wait of six weeks or more checking various sites it popped up here for £7. The package displays absolutely stellar picture and audio as well as a nearly exhaustive roster of supplements. The first one runs 1:46:39 and cuts at a fairly natural point with the capture of Frodo and Sam. For information about computer effects, check out “Weta Digital”. The interviews tell us more nuances of the production and toss in some nice details such as various injuries, occasional tensions, and different challenges, boat training.

We also learn about different vocalists used in the film, the collaboration between Shore and Jackson, recording the music, Jackson’s cameo on the score, additional and altered music for the extended version of Towers, and some other elements.

The Cast is outstanding , particularly Gandalf and Aragorn . The documentary lasts 43 minutes and features interviews with Jackson, Weta Workshop creative supervisor Richard Taylor, conceptual designers John Howe and Alan Lee, Weta designer/sculptors Jamie Beswarick, Warren Mahy, Shaun Bolton, Ben Wootten and Daniel Falconer, Weta Workshop manager Tania Rodger, Weta sword smith Peter Lyon, Weta Workshop supervisor Jason Docherty, Weta on-set coordinator Jamie Wilson, previsualization supervisor Christian Rivers, prosthetics supervisor Gino Acevedo, and actors Karl Urban, Bernard Hill, Jed Brophy, John Rhys-Davies, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Orlando Bloom and Brad Dourif. Also in the “Miniatures” section, we find a collection of seven “Galleries”. “Designing Middle-earth” lasts 45 minutes and 42 seconds and uses the standard format with movie clips, behind the scenes footage, and interviews. We get a total of 58 shots here. It leads us through the sites for Emyn Muil, the Dead Marshes, Rohan, Edoras, Ithlien, Fangorn Forest, and Helm’s Deep. They cover a terrific variety of topics. We find statements from Peter Jackson, Barrie Osborne, Mark Ordesky, Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen, Dominic Monaghan, Karl Urban, Billy Boyd, Andy Serkis, Philippa Boyens, Richard Taylor, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Astin, and Rick Porras.

How did the picture and sound of this version compare to the original DVD from 2003? This program covers Tolkien’s friendship with CS Lewis and its impact on his work, the effect of his World War I experiences on writing, the process of writing the story, the awkwardness of his story-telling methods, the decision to split the story into three volumes and their titles, some interpretation of characters and elements, and a number of other bits that affected the tale. Other than some shots of the various Towers premieres, “Over” offers little useful material, but it acts as a nice send-off for the package, especially since it concludes with a couple of minutes of credits for the folks who put together this amazing set. As always, the pace remains brisk and lively, and the commentary includes virtually no dead space. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
