    I'm going to have to say that even though I have not seen the 3rd movie yet, I really disliked the first two. (By dislike, I mean I would never watch them again). So I probably won't watch the 3rd one. :cool:

    I thought it was really good..although the ending could have been cut down some.

    :finger3:

    The first one was... decent. I can't really remember anything from it, so I can't really say it was too great.

    I honestly never saw the second one. Maybe that's got something to do with it.

    I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi/fantasy to begin with, I was into Star Wars as a kid, but that's about it, so maybe that's why I wasn't really into this at all. Anyway, I'm right and anyone who disagrees with me is stupid. Have fun in Stupidtown watching Return of the Stupid King, stupids!;)

    People keep saying that, and I really don't understand it.

    You have to remember it is in effect one movie. It's not a trilogy like Star Wars when one movie takes place months, or years, after the others. The ending in LoTR:RoTK is basically the ending of one 12 hour movie. Taking that into account, and comparing it's endings to the endings of most movies, how long do you think it should have been? I've seen movies under 2hrs where the ending dragged on for 20 minutes. The LoTR:RoTK ending was certainly not 2 hours long.

    I would add, they didn't put in half the length of the ending as it stood in the book.

    Well, I think that sufficiently explains your apathetic response to it.

    Hahaha.
