Jesus god, stop talking about Elijah! He's not hot, and he's not a good actor. He had the same dumbass expression on his face for the entire movie, and oh yeah, Deep Impact sucked!

But he has the intense eyes Jeff, you can't deny.  Even if he does look kinda mushy if you really think about it.  Girls can't resist the intense eyes!

 I agree one million percent. The movie was three hours long. Considering how little plotting there was, you'd think we would at least get to know the characters a little. Frodo was "wide-eyed", I guess. And Gandalf was supposed to be "wise"(although I thought he seemed kinda senile myself). But what about the rest of the fellowship? I can't think of a single character trait of the dwarf or the elves. I didn't know anyone, I didn't care about anyone, and the slow-motion "get hit with five thousand arrows and still have enough strength to deliver some moving last words" death scene had me shaking my head.
i'm going to be a jackass and post twice in a row.  I agree 99.9% with FishyJeff. 

I posted previously that I thought Gandalf was pretty senile.  He seemed like the kind of guy who'd be going on a walk and stop to look at a butterfly for 3 hours and then forget where his home was.  Now I'm just going on the movie so you guys can all laugh at what a moron I am, but a movie shouldn't need a book to make viewers understand it.  It should stand alone.

When i see the actors go on talk shows and explain their characters it's always interesting.  they explain how elves are kinda supernatural and really brave and great fighters and very smart.  and they talk about how hobbits are little and no one expects much from them.  And how powerful and scary wizards are.  And I didn't get that from the film at all.  I think the movie explained the bad guys a lot LOT better than the good guys.  Half the time I had trouble telling the two humans apart and forget about Merry and Pippen, I didn't get that they were amusing and I didn't care about any of them.

I agree about those two humans VF. That really confused me. They could have at least had 2 different actors that didnt look the same.

I think Elijah is a good actor. But that was not what I was gonna say, how many people watched all three movies in a row, as a whole? I'm guessing more than average since this is a very nerdy place, but still.

I did it once, it was more than awe, it was heaven. I am actually surprized though that I stayed awake the whole time as we didn't start until 3-4am and ended about 1pm, and at least two of us were had been awake since 8 the previous morning. I want to do it again smile

My cousin keeps trying to get me to watch all three extended versions nonstop. I keep trying to get him to watch all 4 seasons of Lost nonstop. Neither will ever happen

Oh, well, we all have different taste. Speaking to a bear I should add "in movies".

Fellowship is a fantastic film and I made sure I watched that just before going to watch Two Towers for the first time.

That's the full extent of my commitment to a LOTR marathon.

In my opinion the first is the best and the last is the worst, but as a whole which it should be they are fantastic,

I'm waiting to get the extended Blu-Ray(s).

Books, I need to find our eyes, you probably double posted without seeing it. And I thought the Two Towers was the best, but remembered it as the worst (worst still being very very good). I don't think I want to watch them again not as a whole.
