    This is a huge stickler for me since all of these add so much to the film. I've just come to the conclusion that without New Zealand so much would be missing.

    I agree Anduril, New Zealand really was the perfect place to create Middle Earth, and although I think the other aspect made the film as well, the scenery was incredible.

    Without the quaility of the actors, the movie just wouldnt work, u could make ME in sets, sure wouldnt be half as good, but still it would work

    Even though I voted for New Zealand I must say that second to that the music because it is so surreal and after that the acting.

    It was tough, but I had to say New Zealand. They could have had the best costumes, the best weapons, and the best actors, but if it didn't look like Middle-earth should, it would have spoiled the enitre thing. But the thing is that they did have the best costumes, and actors, and weapons, so it all makes for a great combination.

    I voted for actors. If the actors could not act it would not have nearly been as good. As much as I agree New Zealand was a good choice to film the movie in...there are other forests in the world that could have been used if needed.

    The music of course. The music helps us to feel the right emotion at that time, and without the music, there wouldn't be as much feeling toward the movie.

    I had to vote for New Zealand's scenery because it also contributes to the acting since much of the environment is real.

    Well I had to vote New Zealand cos I live here. But i have to say that with all off the other aspects to the film like the actors,music, costumes,etc, It has paid off spectacularily. The whole lot has been melded together just right.

    Well, I suppose we would all agree that without any of these things the movies would have been nothing like they are.
