The LOTR Films posted 08 June 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionThe LOTR Films by Loof, Peralogue

I liked them alot, and in many ways think they are better then the books *ducks from the horrible flaming* since i dont like the books much mainly because I think tolkiens storytelling is lacking in many parts of the books and the conversion to a movie forced cutting many of the parts that draged in the books.
Also the mixing up of the parts of TTT and ROTK so that we alternate between the two parties of the fellowship improved the flow of the story immensly.
Other things in the films irritated me since they wheren't from the books and didn't add anything to the story, the two main examples are Aragons mini-Gandalf when he falls of the cliff in TTT and faramirs personality shift so they could show of parts of Gondor already in TTT. view post
