I think it'* hilarious here when poeple are like "Have you seen it? I don't want to ruin the ending for you!"

I've read the series probably a dozen times. If you can ruin the ending for me, then they ruined the movie!!

Paul...lol, when he single handedly takes that thing down, the theatre broke out in applause, that battle scene reminded me of the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars

I always do, and I'm out just before the previews end...
Tell me about it. Ten previews of upcoming movies before the main feature. If the movies starts at 2pm I can show up at 2:30 and won't miss anything.

The series was great.

However, during the RotK, there were these two ladies behind me laughing everytime gollum said something. I wanted to throw something at them.

I take it you're not a book reader...Tolkien'* series can hardly be classified as childrens' books...(reading helps your grammar and spelling, among other things, y'know... )

I agree True, LOTR is not for children. It is a wonderful story and the movie helps those who do not have the patience or the time to read the whole series. But I do recommend that you do...it is better than the movies.
