10. Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Okay, so you’ve probably bought the theatrical cut and extended edition on DVD already, but we still think this Blu-ray version is worth shelling out for. The film is presented in its native 2.40:1 aspect ratio with all the ‘pop’ that 1080p brings to the screen. The fine detail present in the embroidered costumes and windswept vistas is truly a sight to behold. Actors are similarly awash with detail: even the completely CGI Gollum looks more lifelike than usual.
The film: Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
didn’t win 11 Academy Awards for nothing. From the opening prologue with Sméagol to the Grey Havens finale, it will keep orc-loving fantasy fans riveted. There's even a love story in there for non-geeks to swoon over.
