Is there anyone in this world that never watched Lord of the rings?

I think the only say someone to not watch it is if this person lived in a cave. For women this is like the best movie ever, just gorgeous guys and that Legolas...The story is also amazing and teach so much. There's nothing bad in Lotr really.

I have never watched it! And I never will. Forty years ago, I read the books - three volumes! What a load of rubbish - a kid's story that takes a grown-up to understand. A great writer - yes, but not for this!

Oh, I know a lot of people who did not watch this movie. And they don't live in a cave. :D First one is my husband. He really doesn't like this kind of movies. Whenever this kind of movies come to the cinema, I have to go alone.

Awwwwwwwwww.... I feel so bad. Did you watch all three and then the extended edition on the theaters alone? You should have told me I would go with you :D I watched each twice, it was one of the best experiences.

Thanks katie, but I have to accept that my husband doesn't like this kind of movies. and I didn't care going alone to the cinema. I watched all three movies but not the extended edition. I also just watched the movies and did not buy any DVD's or collectibles about the actors.

Hi! Thank you for answering. I see. Well Lotr is also a fantasy story so we have to be into that too to enjoy it fully. The original edition is preatty fun as well. If you want to watch the extended I have renteled it so I think there are in the stores, that way you don't have to buy. Now in my case (big fan) I'm waiting for my blu ray copy!!!

No, there is no one! I have all the movies at home on DVD and the book also as well as the book of The Hobbit which I am looking forward to seeing when it finally gets released. I love LOTR and everything about it. The best story ever told I think!

You are so lucky! I remember when I begun to know this world, it was exciting. But I'm really becoming a fan more now, like 10 years when I learn that world is so hudge. I could search for a new information everyday but I think it would take years to end and understand it all, the more I learn the more beautiful I see Tolkien's vision was.

Tolkien's vision for his imaginary world was amazing! I remember the excitement of seeing each film as it was released. I am trying to get my kids interested in the books and films now.

Actually there are a lot of lotr haters, that refuse to watch the movies or read the books, or any other tolkien books for no apparent reason. (I am not one of the btw)

I can understand them. You know I loved the hot pale blonde elf and that was it, then I tried to read the book for more Legolas. But 10 years later the story kept coming back to me and I dig in: it's beautiful and so hudge. Then I realize it was the most beautiful mithology ever created, he created languages, races, lands, countries, costumes...So I was always impressed. A simple internet search like 'Who's Elrond?' led me to his past, to Celebrian, his late wife and his connection to Galadriel and so on, how old he is and the wars he fought and my jaw drop. I admire who can create a whole new world to entertain us like Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, Walt Disney but Tolkien I find out is the genious, nothing is like Middle Earth. JKRowling=Harry Potter actually ripped everything she 'created' from Lotr. When I read The Fellowship of the Ring I wanted to throw my collection away. I can't believe a writer would copy everything: nazg├╗l, gollum, elves, dwarves, giant spiders, throlls...Even the story is alike. I'll never read HP again.

One more that never watched any movie of the series. I started to read the first book, but after reading like 50 pages, I quit because the book was so boring to me and I ended up giving the book to one of my cousins. Maybe the reason that I never watched (and probably never will) is because I didn't liked at all the book so I thought how they could make a good movie from that. But I have friends that love this movie, they try to convice me to watch, maybe one day that I don't have nothing else to do.

Hi dear, I'm so sorry you didn't like the book. Maybe you should try to go for the movies first. It has much more meaning to a fan for example. I fall in love with Legolas then I went to read the book then I realize that Harry Potter even is a copy of the lord of the rings and how hudge the universe is, how amazing the elves are how amazing the universe of Tolkien is. He even created languages, maps, races, it's really hudge. It took me ten years to understand and fall in love to Tolkien, now Star Trek, Star Wars is small to me near to how I love Lotr. And Harry Potter, I don't like anymore, once I read the book I could recognize a thousand rip offs and I became really disappointed with J.K.Rowling. If you found the books boring, you won't find it in the movies. Peter Jackson changed all that was a little without movement. But he messed as well, he took major nice carachters. And gave Arwen a part that wow! She's not like that at all and I didn't like the carachter. The movie is quite nice thought.

Hi katie: I am hard judging book adaptations but I have to admit that Lord of the Rings is an amazing film. I love the books but I also love the films. They're epic and the story is simply fantastic. However not all of the persons enjoy this genre. For example, for some girls even if they find that the male actors are hot, they won't watch the film because they don't like the genre or because they find the storyline and the wars stories boring. But for me as a fan, it's a great movie. ALVARO

Hello there! When I last came here I didn't got responses yet, thank you. Yes, such a beautiful movies and aren't the actors hot? They created the slash experience, Legolas/Aragorn, Legolas/Haldir, lol. Really love fanfitions like crazy. The movies are great, the books even better. Tolkien is a genius. The movie always makes me smile and cry. I think it's the best story that give us strenght, that it doesn't matter how dark is today, there's always light. Or how Aragorn tells Hanlet (I think that's how it's writen) in Helm's Deep when the boy is lost as he is so young: "There's always hope." And he says that after Legolas freaks out that 300 will fight ten thousand. Oh, that conversation was awesome. They speak in elvish and all. Can you speak something in elvish Mellon nin? Hannon le for answering the question, hahahahahaha.

I've got lot of friends that haven't seen Lord of the Rings, not because they live in caves, but because they don't like fantasy. And really, despite being a woman, I didn't watch it for the hot guys. I liked the hot guys, yes (although I don't think Legolas is very hot) but I'd never watch a film that long just because of them. There's something bad in the Lord of the Rings though. Those stupid CGI hyena thingies. Didn't like them at all :-)
