I really loved all the movies, Return of the King is great because you get to see the culmination of Frodo getting to Mt. Doom, and the defeat of Saurn's forces. I love seeing how all the characters have gown and changed. Sean Astin was amazing as Samwise Gamgee, his performance was so moving. But I think that my favorite might actually be the first movie, "Fellowship of the Ring", I really like the call to adventure feel of the first movie. You get to see the shire, so you have a good idea of what is motivating Frodo and the other hobbits to fight (I love the Shire music), and the forming of the fellowship is the basis and metaphor for much of the story. Plus, the battle in Moria with Gandalf and the Balrog is amazing. Peter Jackson is a genius.

I looked at the trilogy as one whole movie, it's continuous anyway.. But when you mean to say a part of the movie, probably where Legolas keep on showing up.. lol But seriously, I like the whole movie itself because it's just one story divided into 3 parts but I loved the part where Legolas killed that huge elephant.. :) I forgot what part that is, it would be the 2nd or 3rd I guess..

It's so hard to decide! I love all three movies. In fact, I'm a big, no, HUGE fan of LOTR trilogy. The movies aren't as good as the books, but I still love them because they quite live up to Tolkien's works. Peter Jackson did a great job in directing the films. He made an effort to understand the plot, storyline, the characters and many minor details most other directors would take for granted. That's the attraction of LOTR trilogy movies - they pay attention to details. I like the Fellowship, partly for the nice, homely feelings I get during the Shire scenes. The battle in Moria is inspiring too. Two Towers is great, I love the elves' valour in helping Men defend against the hordes of Uruk Hai. But in the books, this didn't even happen. lol ah well, who cares anyway. I think Return of the King has a much more significant part in the trilogy, due to the fact that the last war is in the movie and the revealing of who Aragorn truly is. Two thumbs up for the trilogy! And long live the trilogy!
