Which do you like better? The movie trilogy or Tolkien's written epic?

Post by Jojoriah on Wed Nov 25, 2009 9:01 pm

So I thought I would see what you all think about the movie vs. book. There is a LOT of controversy of this topic in some forums that I have seen. Hopefully we are more civilized than that Very Happy

Oh I like both! I really enjoyed reading the books, but the movies provide exquisite visuals! So in my book, (yep, PUN lol), I don't think either one is better than the other, cuz they are different. Very Happy (Sound logic I must say) haha.

For visual paradise and stimulation....totally the movie

Definitely a wonderfully engrossing book; one of the best books I've ever read or will ever read.

I agree with you, Jojoriah (and Brendon! ehe!), about the movie. I especially LOVE the musical score by Mr. Shore! So beautiful.

I have the score....pretty awesome! So of the three seperate books/movies...which is your favorite? The Fellowship, Two Towers, or the Return of the King.

I like both, movies and books. Except they did miss out on a lot of stuff in the movie like Tom Bombadil and a couple more things but it was still really good.
I think the Fellowship is my fav as well.

Yes that would!
Then make like Aragorn say something like: "Your meant to be here ages ago, Deed" or something
That would be funny.
Good idea Matt!
