Ok. Now if you want to know what was good and what was bad about the movie according to the book visit Diana's blog and read her entry on the movie. I am just going to tell you how amazing the movie was. I am not quite as critical of the movie as other Tolkien fans, but I do have some problems with the way the film order was done. However, the final chapter of this epic drama has come to a close and the films will forever be ingrained in my mind. I never get tired of reading the books so the films brought into my mind pictures of creatures and places that I have only read and imagined.
I want to bring credit where it is due. Peter Jackson took on this massive project and completed it with finesse and style. My thanks, and the thanks of thousand fans of Tolkien, go out to him for bringing to life the amazing adventures of one brave hobbit and the Fellowship of the Ring. I also want to congratulate the cast and crew on an excellent job. The characters were amazingly portrayed and the sets, designs, and costumes incredible. I can't say enough about this set of movies and I can't wait for the extended version of Return of the King.
Now I want to say something about fans. I went to see RotK this morning at 10:30. When my uncle and I walked into the theater I about died. The room was nearly filled to capacity, and this was one of the bigger screening rooms in the theater. That has to say something. By the time the movie started at 10:30, the show had to be sold out. As we were leaving the theater I took a look at the board with the movie times on it. RotK was sold out until 4:30 and there is no doubt in my mind that it is sold out for the rest of the day even as I type this entry.
My final words to you are if you haven't seen it already go and see it. If you have go see it again. I assure you I will be.
