ha ha That is so funny you say that! I have watched all the movies. I even refused to watch all the movies because I am not much of a tv person. But one day I walked in when my partner and eldest son were watching them and I got sucked it! There must be something subliminal! Because I even watch it when it comes on tv too. We own all the DVDs and I keep telling myself that I want to watch them with the hearing impaired captions so I can catch every word. I am a visual person...LOL I have watched one with the captions...but would you believe that was when it was airing on tv? Why do I torture myself with the commericals? Just so I have a reason to step away during a commerical? LOL Point is...yes, I get sucked into it too. :)

yeah, same here, even after i watch it maybbe five times and red the book i always want to watch it.. every seconds of it... this is one of the movie that created such power. plus whats in the book was portrayed pretty good in the movie..not all movies who came from book can do that. i just love the general idea!

I was really surprised that they pulled the whole thing off so well. I understand that they are working on filming "The Hobbit" but there will be a different director than the one who did "The Lord of the Rings."

I simply adore the movie[I think everything about the creation and production is just genius], I adore the actors and actresses that brought those unforgettable characters to life. Personally, I think it is the movie of the century. But, I guess coming from someone who loves Harry Potter,Narnia, and Chronicles of Riddick, that isn't really the best possible endorsement. But I find that any movie that just for a little while actually transports me somewhere else, and actually makes me believe for a little while that the actors[he's or she's] are real, is a great movie. And let's not forget 'Batman Begins'. You know, I did get a little off track, so in closing let me just say, I think 'Lord of the Rings' is the 21st century's 'Gone with the Wind.' Nuf said. SS

I agree. They did an incredible job bringing the books to life in the movies. Batman begins was a great movie too.

No, it's not just you. the movies are great and the vistas are breathtaking, but the story just sucks you in every time. Even if the movie does not quite end as it does in the book.
