    My SO and I just watched all 3 movies this past week.

    I saw 'The Fellowship of the Ring' about 8 times in theaters and have seen it out of theaters countless times.
    I love all 3 but it is my fav.


    My SO just discovered them a few months ago (I have the 2nd one here the 1st one at my dads and never bought the 3rd). He saw the 2nd and just HAD to see the others. My local blockbuster didnt have the first (someone never returned it) so he had to settle for watching the 3rd. Well a few days ago I was looking around in the BB and noticed they had the 1st one so I rented it for him (and myself [​IMG]). Then we just HAD to watch all 3 of them in order over the next few days (hey thats cool with me!).



    Im sad there is only 3. I want more! [​IMG]


    I can not WAIT for 'The Hobbit' to come out. Though it wont be the same...
    I will want Frodo and Sam and Aragorn and Legolas...




    Anyone else love LOTR?

    I loved the series. My babysitter read The Hobbit to me when i was 5 and I was hooked then. I read all the books in junior high and again as an adult. I was really pleased with how Peter Jackson got so much of the books into the movies. Usually when a movie is made of a book, I'm disappointed because so much is not there, but these movies were great.

    I really like Viggo Mortensen too, so that was just a big bonus too.

    I am a Tolkien nerd.

    WHen I was in the fifth grade they showed the cartoon about the Hobbit. A year later, I found the book. Oh my goodness, I was in heaven. It saved me from a lot of problems. OTher girls my age were putting on make up and dating boys. I was fighting imaginary battles with evil and trasversing through the woods with Bilbo. LOL

    Yeah. I was a nerd. [​IMG]

    By the way, the part in the first LOTR when the Ringwraiths are sniffing for Frodo scared the heck out of me. LOTR is not horror but the way, Tolkien described that was frightening.

    Strider/Aragon looks much better looking then I imagined him to be.
