Lord Of The Rings -discussWatch
Does anyone have anything interesting to say...or just anything to say - about the films/characters/anything related etc etc as I generally like to talk about it and would be curious to know how many other fans there are out there...
*egan1 think she has done this discussion starter very badly indeed...but felt the need and did it anyway*
I still love the movies though. Luckily, it is possible to get them on DVD, if you know where to look...
But i wont talk about that too much.
The directors cut of FotR was much, much better than the theatrical release. If i'd have seen that first then I probably would rate it as highly as TTT. Then again, if the directors cut of FotR is anything to go by, it should be even better when it is released for TTT.
Also, I think Viggo Mortenson has done brilliantly as Aragorn, not sure if I should be crediting him or those in charge of casting.
Generally though, neither have come close to Magnolia / The Wicker Man / Gladiator / Scarface.
I know some people who have got TTT but I am not into the whole illegal downloading thing- it's a great movie and I feel they've deserved the cash...just a shame about having to wait *sigh*
I think TTT had a lot more humour in it, I don't know which I prefer...am eager to see the directors cut also...I wonder if there is as much extra footage as with the last film? hopefully should be.
And I agree the casting is great, must say I'm a bit of a Legolas fan- all that archery :P
I have only seen Gladiator out of the films you have praised...I did greatly enjoy it but for me LOTR stays in the top spot
I don't agree that actors deserve £30 million per movie, I think that's plain stupid. Millions of people would give their right arm to earn a millionth of that per month. I definately think they did a good job of making the movie and they should get credit for it, not hundreds of millions of dollars.
As for your thoughts on the money factor- it is ridiculous that that is what actors get payed- as indeed the do in many big movies -not just LOTR...however I am still not prepared to illegally download it etc etc- wher's the morality in that?
I don't see it as being imoral compared to charging the prices that we're charged for cinema tickets now! They make heaps of dolla so I don't feel guilty. I'm not exactly a large scale white skinned greasy haired web pirate either, just when a film won't be released for ages and i'm desperate to see it again, as well as being skint, I get it off t' net.

slightly confubled- may well have been a joke I completely missed? or perhaps not relating to the post above?
My sister is headed off to Glastonbury (excuse spelling if tis incorrect) tomorrow and apparently they're showing TTT in a film tent one night...*sigh*...maybe I could sneak into her hiking-style backpack....
You know most of the big UK cinema chains will be showing the EE versions of FOTR and TT in the run up to ROTK, if you'd like to see them on the big screen again! I know I do!
It's odd looking back at some of these posts, I only wrote them a few months ago but all the same, shows a small change.
isnt return of the king said it will be the best film so far out of lotr
