I will listen to Gollum's Song as i can't recall it off the top of my head. Otherwise i'd probably have mentioned it. I'd agree with you Gimli, probably because i prefer Enya's voice. Only just though.

So someone at youtube has posted the animated verisons of both The Hobbit and Return of The King. Never saw these two films before...and now I wish I never had. I tell you, makes you marvel at just how well Jackson translated the books when you see the results of these cartoons.

The Minstel of Gondor? Wtf!?

I might watch them for comedy value. Then again, I still have nightmares about the animated LOTR. Rarely have I seen anything so bad!

I think i will avoid. BUT i do need to rewatch LotR again soon.

I've just heard Gollum's Song. I remembered it straight away. It's brilliant. Not as good as May It Be. But by God it's got me in the LotR mood!

Fotr is not my favorite but i understand why people like it. It was hard to start a very big trilogy and introduce people of middle earth ! TTT was much better it had more action and it was building up . Rotk the battle for middle eart starts enough said !!!!!!!!!

I found ROTK the most disapointing....Mainly the paths of dead and Pelanoer Fields bits....though the charge of the Rohirrim was brilliant.....

The thing i get mostly annoyed with the movies are the changes Jackson made form the book.....most of them just seem unessecary like when Frodo tells Sam to go home. The Frodo in the book would of never done that. And how the characters of Aragorn, Faramir and Denether were completely changed....why did Jackson feel the need to do that....and i havent even mentioined the elves at Helms Deep or the paths of dead bits.

I remember saying at the end of ROTK that everyone else had just better give up making movies from now as nothing is ever going to top the LOTR trilogy.

It still stands that nothing has surpassed it.

LOTR are fantastic, but in terms of spectacle IMO transformers came close!

Well im not saying that transformers is a better film because its not. i think LOTR are vastly superior than the other films i have seen, and i cant imagine how they would have been

portrayed on the screen any differently, other than 1 or 2 niggles. I only saw ROTK at the cinema as before i wasnt interested in them at all. but after constantly seeing the trailer on the

rush hour dvd i was persuaded by the older brother to read the books before which i did. I thought ROTK was the finest film i had seen both in terms of spectacle and story.

While transformers' plot wasnt really amazing, the whole feel of it was incredible, much to what i felt like ROTK

Watched The Two Towers on 4 tonight. I just meant to watch bits of it but i got so drawn in. I cried as well. I'm sure it's the only film that really gets me going. All of them make me cry at somepoint. More usually it's more than once. Truly amazing.

I turned on just as the Ents started to match, that got me started. I've always wondered why a bunch of talkin trees should make me so emotional. I love the way the three stories head towards their climax at this point, as we go to Frodo and Sam and the fight in Osgiliath, and then the supremely awesome moment of Gandalf and the Rohirrim arriving at Helm's Deep. That latter scene just stuns me every time, The perfect combination of imagery and music.

My sister saw more than I did and said that certain moments were missing. I know they were showing the theatrical editions but she swears blind some bits had been cut.

Your sister may have been right. But then again it could just be that she's watched the Extended Cut so often she forgot what was in the theatrical cut in the first place. I know i just gave up caring. It's not as good without the extra bits inserted though. She may have been right especially if it was violence or something early on?

Id say the Two Towers is the best film from the trilogy, and the only better trilogy out there is the Godfather. My favourite scene is the Ent Moot, with my favourite line being when we go back to the ents, and the whole cinema audience wants to go back to the battle of Helm's Deep, and we get the two-three minute scene of Treebeard saying "You have to understand it takes a long time to say anything in old entish, and we ents don't bother saying anything, unless it is taking a long time to say." or something like that.

I re-read Empire's piece on LotR it was very good. And i do appreciate the criticisms that Empire lays at Jacksons door but i just don't care! The good sooooo outways the bad!

I know exactly what you mean. The films aren't flawless, no film is, but there's just so much to love then geting bogged with the faults of the films seem silly. Also, and I've said this many times before, I've never seen a film in which all the separate elements come together so well, to make the most complete and fulfilling film experience.

agree with the above. i can't see how anyone could really hate LOTR and, even worse, how people find them boring!!!. Those are the people who just don't understand films and who think Michael Bay is a god.

Everyone has got different tastes....
I dont hate LOTR.....but as a massive fan of the books i just get annoyed at the changes Jackson made to the movies from the books...
If it wasent for that i would call LOTR a oustanding set of films....the hype running up to the films is a thing i will never forget...

An amazing film, totally changed my views on things, im saddened that over the years theyve become burried and i just cant find time to watch them. But wow so many scenes, and the acting, it isnt acting, its just the characters, just amazing, no faults there and wow, ROTK merges the action of TTT and the specticle of FOTR together seamlessly, just an amazing trilogy, just wished ROTK could of out grossed titanic.

Time and hyp has the effect of weakening things and taking them for granted. Looking back on the LOTR's now and watching them again it has to be said that they have to be three of, if not the, best films ever made. Whether your a fan or not, the difficulty and techincal achievement of bringing something so epic, fantasy-based, deep and complex to the screen, let alone make into a credible film with all the structural elements and cinematic rules necessary, and to do it to an extremely high quality three times over is just absolutely unbelieveable.

You should always go with your first true feelings, instincts and reactions with things in life and when i sat down for the first time to watch FOTR it just took my breath away. Fantasy buff or non-fantasy buff, you can't deny they are a work of cinematic genius.

RotK was on in a bar at my Uni the other night (no sound) and there was something else going on that wasn't that great and everyone has said they half had their eye on LotR when something good wasn't on. Obviously, most of the time there was no need but everyone kept looking up just to see where Frodo was or whatever. Made me smile.

I have to disagree. Even on DVD they were completely outstanding. I was really moved at the end of ROTK. Nearly moved me to tears again watching the strength of friendship between Frodo and Sam. The character acting is fantastic.
