    Probably the best film adaptation of a book series ever.

    Although it will always bother me that Arwen is the one who rode Frodo to Rivendell. :comicbookguy:

    The Hobbit adaptation was so so so terrible compared to this masterpiece.

    It's like Peter Jackson was like "scene sucks and is too short? Let's just pan around the characters for a few minutes. These idiots will watch it either way."

    Harry Potter is a recent one. I would probably amend my statement to say best book-to-movie period.

    I'd say HP and LOTR are about equal...LOTR isn't remotely close to the best book to movie ever...RotK was terrible and eliminates it from consideration

    I agree The Hobbit comes no where near close to touching LOTR but i will always watch it still when on TV because i'm a sucker

    Agree on the ghost army. If you mean not including the Scouring of the Shire by atrocious ending, I agree on that too.

    Disagree that's it's terrible though.

    RotK suffers from the recency effect - the ending is so shitty it fouls the memory of the entire thing. The exact opposite of the Hangover.

    When I think of The Trilogy at this point, I think of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. Which also suffers due to the rushed ending to TDKR.

    Leaving out the Scouring of the Shire so that they could amp up the battles with meaningless scenes like Legolas swinging around on a Mumakil is, IMO, unforgivable. The whole fucking point wasn't for the hobbits to go off and have an adventure; it was to learn shit and apply it to their own lives and situation. They needed to come back and fight evil in their own home, instead of just rolling over like their fellow hobbits (or, just come home and exchange meaningful knowing looks over a pint of ale, like they did in the film), for the whole storyline to make sense and create closure.

    That said, I disliked Two Towers more. So much good stuff in the book, but they cut it out so they have enough screen time for a meaningless series where Aragorn goes over a cliff, Gimli calls 3000-year-old Legolas "Lad," and a ten-page attack on Helm's Deep becomes half the fucking movie because PJ likes to choreograph battle scenes. OK, Peter, we get it, lots of orcs die in different ways. Bleh.

    FOTR was the good one.

    I haven't watched the most recent because the first two were so incredibly bad.

    Different strokes for different folks, but LOL at you getting mad at someone pointing out the movies were crap.

    Calm down stinky, you don't have to get so michigan mad because someone points out your opinion is meaningless because you didn't even know there was a 3rd movie.

    You don't have to white knight for a couple of shitty movies just because other people think they're dogshit. It's ok to have a different opinion. It doesn't mean I think less of you. It's not like you enjoy country music or something.

    I think they're dogshit, huge disappointment. It's just hilarious you are offering your opinion about a movie you didn't even see, or even know existed, yet you have an opinion on it. Thanks for sharing Stinky!

    Reasonable minds can differ on whether the first Hobbit was bad or merely okay, but the second and third were steaming piles of crap.

    You're right man, because I chose not to watch the third movie I have no right to express an opinion of the the first two, which I did watch. You're so right.

    But, by all means, keep congratulating yourself for choosing to watch a movie that you now conveniently think is dogshit.

    Sorry to ruin your childhood.

    It should have been one fantastic well made movie. The book is short as fuck.

    But that wouldn't have made nearly as much money, so they just made a bunch of shit up that wasn't even close to tolkiens standard or in the book knowing our dumbasses would just lap it up.
