Movie Series - Lord of the Rings, The

The Lord of the Rings film trilogy consists of three live action fantasy epic films: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003) (often abbreviated to LotR for the trilogy, and FotR, TTT, and RotK for the individual films). The trilogy is based on the three-volume book The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. While they follow the book's general storyline, the films also feature some additions to and deviations from the source material. Set in the fictional world of Middle-earth, the three films follow the young hobbit Frodo Baggins as he and a Fellowship embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring, and thus ensure the destruction of its maker, the Dark Lord Sauron. The Fellowship becomes divided and Frodo continues the quest together with his loyal companion Sam and the treacherous Gollum. Meanwhile, the wizard Gandalf and Aragorn, heir in exile to the throne of Gondor, unite and rally the Free Peoples of Middle-earth, who are ultimately victorious in the War of the Ring. The films were directed by Peter Jackson and distributed by New Line Cinema. With an overall budget of $280 million, the entire project took eight years, with the filming for all three films done simultaneously and entirely in Jackson's native New Zealand. Each film in the trilogy also had Special Extended Editions, released on DVD a year after the theatrical releases.

1 People think the movies that were already made were long. Imagine how longer the movies would've been if they truly had added every chapter and everything from the books. It'd be 12 hours or more. So, we took what we could get out of that at least. -- Submitted By: () on September 29, 2013, 4:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I've never seen any installment of Lord of The Rings. But to be fair its only because the movies are way too long. I have a pretty short attention span so I don't particularly care for movies exceeding a 2 hours. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on December 1, 2011, 3:48 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Love the books and feel that Peter Jackson, although he did change some things, did successfully get the feeling of Tolkien into the movies. Return of the King did come close to boning with the long ending, it's something that worked in print but was very hard to do on film. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on November 30, 2011, 4:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Dolfan, that's a very good reason why they should have NEVER eliminated the intermission from extremely long movies. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 6, 2010, 8:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 They would've been fine if it hadn't been for the longest "endings" in movie history!!! I had a Coke at the beginning of the first one and 30 minutes from when it actually ended my bladder was ready to burst. I learned my lesson for the next one, or so I thought. I deliberately abstained from drinking anything for hours beforehand, and STILL had the same thing happen to me because once again, the damn thing REFUSED to just END!!! Finally for the third one I just gave in and went to the restroom in mid-movie. And some people STILL had the unmitigated gall to complain about stuff that was left OUT?! Holy mother of God!!! The sad part is, I can watch TV/DVDs for half a day at home and not have to urinate once! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 5, 2010, 9:32 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 LOTR never boned. The end of the 3rd film was too slow but there isn't much else to criticize. I'm so pleased they didn't F up these films like they did with some other book-to-movie series. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 5, 2010, 8:32 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I prefer re-reading the book to watching the movies, but they are still a wonderful realization of Tolkien's genius. -- Submitted By: (JohnDoehner) on December 16, 2009, 2:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I have to agree with gpshaw, the films themselves were great effect wise and the acting superb... but the film felt like there was no urgency nor did I feel that the civilizations where in any danger, the films themselves move at a snails place ESPECIALLY the last one where I nearly got a bladder infection from the ending. And I think Randall Graves from Clerks II summed it up nicelly. -- Submitted By: (CobraCommander1) on November 9, 2009, 6:51 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I respect LOtR for it's scope and it's brilliant cinematography, but the movies themselves just don't do it for me. Maybe it's too complex for me, or maybe I'm just not into fantasy movies like another poster (though I love Narnia so that points to the former rather than the latter reason) Either way great movie production wise, bad plot wise. -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 27, 2009, 2:07 am - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I don't get the love-fest the world has with these movies. Maybe it's because I don't like fantasy movies, but I just have no interest in these movies. -- Submitted By: (BAM) on April 15, 2009, 7:47 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The movies moved too slow. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 5, 2009, 6:45 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
