    I guess what I hated about it was the portrayal of Sauron. In the first and third one, even though he was a giant eye it seemed to have character and was a mennacing type villian thing. In the second one, he just seemed like just a background figure that wasn't that dangerous. I don't know, just a weird observation on my part.

    I also think the extended versions of the movies add a whole new element to the film. The Return of the King extended version is, in my opinion, way better than what was put on the screen.

    I guess I shouldn't be be surprised considering the source material . If you're going spend four pages describing a door I guess that's what you'll get.

    Don't get me wrong, I thought they were visually beautiful films, they just weren't all that interesting to me.

    I adore all three films, or I should say all three parts. Its one movie broken into three parts.

    I assume you are talking about LOTR and not The Hobbit, which hasn't been released yet?

    Which is why I found this trailer a little odd. The tone of it certainly didn't match the lighter environment I remember from the book. Still looks frikkin awesome though

    Re: The Hobbit.

    I was excited when Del Toro was cowriter and director. when he had to leave the project due to endless delays Jackson took over as director. The Hobbitt book has a completely different feel than the Lord of the Rings books. its much more a kids book. the trailer looks just like the LOTR trilogy that Jackson directed. I would enjoy a Hobbitt movie. I'll enjoy a 4th & 5th LOTR movie less so.

    J.R.R. Tolkien apparently created the whole of Middle Earth as a linguistic hobby. And wrote "The Hobbit" as a children's' story. When it exploded in popularity in the 1970's the LOTR quickly followed it into print as a "grown-up" continuation of the story. All are great reads in their own way. 'Bout time "The Hobbit" got the attention it deserves.

    Re: The Hobbit.

    I remember there was an animated movie of The Hobbit that my mother used to rent from the library for me. It had this eerie music that scared the ever-living pants off me.

    Plus "The Hobbit" shows how the ring, the story behind it, which is the center piece of the whole series, first came into the possession of a Hobbit via Bilbo and then passed on to Frodo. It was the stage setter.

    Re: The Hobbit.

    You can actually watch the '77 version on youtube:
    The Hobbit (1977) Movie Part 1/6 - YouTube

    Does anyone know at which point in the story they are splitting it into the two movies?
