    I find it hard to believe you'll be disappointed, as even the biggest Tolkien enthusiast can sit down and appreciate films of such epic proportions.

    I completely understand where you're coming from though. I have read books that I hope are never made into films, as I'm not sure whether justice would be done.
    LotR however, is one of those rare occasions where a great job was done :)

    I'm glad you will watch the movies one day Kaly. You won't be crushed or dissappointed I don't think. Make sure you let us all know when you do watch them and give a review of the trilogy here on the forum so we see how you exactly responded to the films.

    How do you ask that question on a LotR forum. Yes, it's a beautiful thing.

    It's supposedly Grimbeorn, just google "Grimbeorn."

    The movies are excellent. I didn't expect Peter Jackson to have every little detail in each movie. Why, if he did then each movie would have been more than three hours. I believe he did a fabulous job of casting the characters as well. I give each of the movies a A++.

    Yes, I agree, but I would add some of these: +++++++++++++++^^
    It is the right mixture. They fit to each other and fit into their charakters. It is just perfect and the best fil/trilogy that has ever existed.
    Oh, and the music is great too, just perfect.

    I personally feel that the Lord of the Rings movies are the best movies ever made. That about sums it up. :)

    Hmm yeah. Right up there with Star Wars (better movies, but nearly equal classics) as I never have to say it's my favorite movie. I always exclude SW and LOTR, as it's a given. :cool:

    There's one other movie-book adaptation that I think is better, and I think that most people will agree: The Chronicles of Narnia
