    I'm not the only one who thinks that. Epic battles, fairly tedious in between. The action is good, the special effects are good and Smeagol is great. On the other hand the characters are predictable and wooden, the movies are too long and baggy (people walking and walking and walking, and the ending is the longest in movie history; I see why Jack Nicholson walked out because I too was thinking "omg will this ever end?"). I got bored at many points and often it became a chore. When I first watched LOTR I gave it a 7/10 mainly due to the groundbreaking special effects at the time, and it remains as that.

    Fair enough, that's your opinion. I love anything to do with LOTR

    I don't see how people can dislike Withnail and I.

    30 Minutes or Less already has 56 points. Are people forgetting the point of this a bit? :laugh:

    Not seen any of the movies so don't want to actually save any. Whereas before I could save on I knew and liked and just kill any old random one. Just to wait I suppose.
