GAD I wish Bluray would become the norm already and not an over priced luxury so I can hop on the band wagon. I remember it took me until 2003 to finally give up VHS for DVD, heh.

There is no Blu-ray release of LotR. This was probably taken from an HD TV broadcast or something.

One of the very few Films (Film series in this case) that I would double dip to get the Hi-Def...
And pray for decent 7.1 sound!

Probably, but impressive noentheless, no? And anyway, Peter Jackson has actually stated that they're going to take about a year working on a Blu-Ray edition of the films, but they won't be around until about 2009. He's also stated that the BD releases will have deleted scenes and an outtake reel.

The BD release will look a lot better than that. It hasn't been cleaned up much if those pics are anything to go by.
