    This would only be the case if the upcoming Hobbit movies were on the same level of episode 1 & 2, which destroyed the franchise in my eyes.

    Lord of the Rings is on another level. The only reason people hold the original SW trilogy in such high regard (I do, honestly...I love star wars), is because it was so ahead of it's time!

    Blasphemy! have you read the books?

    Peter Jackson basically destroyed them and put his own tarnished mark on them.



    Although I did think the Fellowship was a pretty good movie and the most accurate. Thats not saying much though..



    And Rudy, how could you not like StarWars? What is wrong with you woman!

    No, but I plan on reading them actually. I always like books over movies/shows, but it's not like they were that bad. The Lord of the Rings are pretty popular and they've all gotten pretty good reviews

    I'll agree with you 1/3 of the way. I thought the Fellowship was good. I didn't like the other ones that much at all, and felt they were a letdown from the buildup of the first one.


    The biggest problem is that they ruined/changed much of the story and took a lot of liberties. I will say this though, I thought the casting was brilliant. The actors did a fantastic job. The cinematography was stunning and the costumes, set design, etc. were very well done. The music score was amazing! Howard Shore was genius in this film. I thought the music really captured the essence of Middle Earth.

    Shame they couldn't get the rest right.
