Sorry, but I am a bit on the left side of the LOTR topic because the movies did not live up to the books... It was comparable to the letdown I had when watching War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise; the Authors work with your imagination was so vivid that any adaptation was a let down to what your mind could conjure.
Then again, perhaps I am too harsh on the movies for having such high expectations for a story I loved so dearly when I was younger. It's perhaps the same reason why I have yet to see a Beowulf movie that I enjoyed outside of "oh, cool! Look at that CGI!!!" Here I am, turning into the pessimist again
