To me, the Lord of the Rings shouldn't have been filmed all together lol. The most boring 9 hours of my life have been gone and won't ever be returned.

:lol: The "common sense" approach to will never catch on.

And as for those Nuzgul you mentioned, if the film had stuck to the same story as the book they could have chopped them all to bits on Weathertop with the weapons from the barrows...............darn I appear to have gone all Uber-nerdy....sorry. :oops:

I'm with elizabethswan.... most boring set of movies for me ever. And unfortunately my wife LOVES them. So everytime they play all three of them on TV, guess what we end up watching ALL DAY, and WITH commercials.... As if watching all three in a row wasn't bad enough!! lol

I guess you didn't grow-up reading the trilogy.

I was introduced to the LoTR books in the summer of 1976. It took me 6 months to read all four books (the Hobbit, included), and even longer to understand them. Fortunately, our neighbors (ex hippies) were REALLY into the Lord of the Rings and we spent hours talking about the story.

Since then, I have re-read the entire series about every 5 years. It is still my favorite summer read.

When the movies came out, I was entranced. I have to admit that I teared-up during the Fellowship of the Ring.

I think that these three movies were excellent, and captured much of the magic. Of course, I disagree with some of the Director's decisions, and there are some very important story elements that were left out (Tom Bombadil, the Scouring of the Shire, and Gimli's love and appreciation for all things Elvish after meeting Galadriel). BUT, overall it was a marvelous attempt at trying to create a film to tell the story of my favorite books of all time.
