Default LOTR



Saw it tonight, amazing, epic story, visually stunning, glints of humour, battle sequences that were just jaw dropping...

A visual masterpiece, Tolkien should be happy with Jacksons work on these films.

I'll wait for the trilogy to come out on DVD

He'* not a fan of LOTR. Maybe he likes Star Trek?

Just kidding Tofu!!

I haven't seen any of the LOTR movies. Never saw the first and then missed the rest of them. Some time I'll get the DVD'*. I know they must be pretty good films.

Like I was sayin to Peterman earlier, I am a huge Trek fan, never followed Middle Earth fantasy stories, but I can appreciate a visual masterpiece such as LOTR

I like both, Trek and LOTR. I'll probably see the movie Xmas day, when everyone else is busy opening presents...

That'* what I heard, too. The reviewer I saw said "Make sure you get the big tub of popcorn..."

I always do, and I'm out just before the previews end...
