I haven't been this excited for a movie since The Phantom Menace, but after seeing TFotR, Star Wars seems hollow and vapid, not to mention childish. It's not the second coming like many people say but it was a good three hours.

Going to see it this weekend, and it is one of the only films that I'm psyched for. I mean, when was the last time that a studio took a fantasy story seriously? Each fantasy movie to date has been on a low budget, and has ridden entirely on the name. This one was actually taken seriously, I could swoon of happiness.

Talking

Haven't seen it yet, but I loved the books, including the silmarillion...

...glad to hear Gandalf finally got the hang of that silly sleeve spring...

I guess I have to admit the English have damn good writers. And I'm glad they speak American....

unless you have a bitchin' home theater system, i'd say you're missing out

i couldn't reccomend Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (poo poo sotryline) to rent or own, but in the first few rows of a theater with the sound blasting and special effects on screen taking up your field of vision... that's coolness

From a geek friend of mine on LotR:

"This displaces Star Wars as my #1 movie of all time."

From a non-geek friend of mine on LotR:

"I don't have a #1 movie ... but I've got a top ten. I've also got a top 5 ... this one's definitely in the top 3 ... perhaps even topping Ferris Beuller's Day Off."

Not to sound hyperbolusly silly ... but you're an idiot loser if you don't see this movie.

OMFG THAT MOVIE ****ING OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First 5 minutes, dropped my jaw as I looked on in wonder at the computer animated battle scenes. Every inch of this movie was crawling with genuine character from teh books and stunning, and I MEAN STUNNING visuals. Holy **** all 3 of the towers were perfect!!!!!! GOD I LOVE THIS MOVIE. This exceeded my very high expectations. I saw it at 4pm yesterday (19th). and i already wanna see it again. Lucifix, you may not like some of the elvish stuff, but the BALROG SCENE IS WORTH IT! I would say it was better than the book.

My brother is the biggest star wars fan in the history of ...well that i know anyway, and he liked this better than Episode 4 even tho he didn't like the book ( he only read the first) so I think that cinches it. If the second two are this good, there's no reason why this won't be the best trilogy in the history of movie making. my current #1's are starwars 4-6 and indiana jones, but I get the feeling this will displace both

GOD IT WAS so AWWESSOOMME!!!!! *sigh* I can't wait to see it again.

Well, yes ... with most things it's all just an opinion.

But, when it comes to this movie, it's simply a hard-and-cold fact that those who don't see it are not complete and probably have major psychological issues ... and are probably ugly, too.
