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!
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.
but lets be honest, how often do you run into "epic movies" where they were identical to the books? Not often. I'd say Game of Thrones on HBO is the closest youre going to get.

It's too bad, I'm too good....
Overall it was a good film I suppose. Not even close to Star Wars though. That was just great in every way. The newer three don't exist in my eyes.
