Well, from what I know, many moviegoers who never read the book didn't feel the end was lacking. Most of them thought the ending was drawn out. Many told me that the movie should end at most at the...

My friend said the Gondorian army looking very British, while the Rohirim looked vaguely Roman, costume wise at least. We ought to kill the costume designers if this is the impression they are giving...

Viggo Mortensen is a very good actor. Okay, that is the biggest understatement of the year. But anyway, he was just glorious and splendid beyond words as Aragorn. <P>His "I do not fear death" line at...

Definitely Denethor. That character came of as a total jerk for me. The way he treats Faramir and the way he doubts Gandalf and Aragorn sickens me.

Not really a movie... but does anyone know The Ring of the Nibelung by Richard Wagner. It's quite similar to LOTR, starting with that all powerful, evil ring! Also the union between a mortal man and...

Oh please. Of course the elves did all of those farming, cooking, washing stuff! I am sure the elven society is just like a feudal society, and Rivendell is nothing different from a manor. No matter...

Rrrriight.... Evil? Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter? Who on Earth came up with the idea? They are fictions, stories to "cheat thee of a smile, or charm thee to a tear" according to old verse. So...

To be honest, I hated the hobbits' part. I was often very annoyed because the main hero of LOTR was actually a hobbit. My friedns and I used to sit there and come up with tons of reasons why hobbits...

Things that turned my stomach in TTT.<P>1. Gollum's line of "But master is my friend!" with that sympathetic innocent expression. Gollum is a well done character, BUT that part is just overdone. I...

I really loved and enjoyed Arwen's role, so did my friends. We all read the books before seeing the movies, but we still loved the changes. Movie is a different media than book. There is no room for...

The first time I saw LOTR, I was thinking, "cool, this stuff is just like The Ring!(the opera, NOT the new horror movie)"
There is the ring motive. A ring of ultimate power of dominance, but it's...

Some say there is a line between normal "magic" and Tolkien's magic, some say there isn't. Well, it really depends on how you define the word "magic". If magic simply means things that can't be...

I would liked the title "The Ring". It's easier to say and we don't need to use abbreviation.(you know, the whole LOTR thing)
It would sound kinda menacing and evil and all that. But it maybe...

The whole book is mad if you look at it that way.(and I admit, sometimes I do) I think the reason Gandalf sent Frodo is because he is resilient to the ring's power. The problem here is not how to get...
