The Lord Of The Rings

Post by Antari on Sat Mar 27, 2010 4:16 pm



This thread is to discuss all three Lord Of The Rings movies; Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers and The Return of the King.

I saw the first Lord of the Rings movie last weekend and I must say, it was pretty good. The next day, I watched the sequel. It's been a week now, and I'm just about to watch the thrid movie. Just thought I'd make this thread to discuss the series Smile

Bleh I hated this series. I'm just saying, there are quite a few plot holes and it's way too long. Some of the scenes were unnecessary, or turn it into six movies. I just lost interest after a while.

I thought they were great (books = better though). Plot holes don't matter. It was written to have symbolism, not to tell a fantasy story. Its based very much off of WWII. Symbolisms what you should be looking for, not plot holes.

I saw Return of the King in theaters when it came out. That was epic. I have the DVD trilogy, but Return of the King broke in my DVD player, and the DVD player broke itself...So I haven't seen it in a long time.

I wish The Hobbit was made into an actual movie. Its a bit more childish, but its just as good as the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I get the whole symbolism, but I couldn't get through it. It just wasn't entertaining. Same with the books. The books were a little more bareable though. I did like the movies when something did actually happen, like the battles and when the hobbits get captured, but the long boring parts just killed my like for the movie/books.

I had to watch the Director's Cut for all of the movies because we had a movie marathon. That's hard work. Lol

I just finished watching the last movie.

Wow. Loved it. So much.

I didn't pick up on any symbolism or plot holes. Care to expalin any of that?

Also, what happened to Frodo's finger after it was bitten off?

I forget the plot-holes, but there are a few of them. If you didn't notice any, then theres no point worrying about it.

As for symbolism, its about WWII; Sauron = Hitler, Mordor = Nazi Germany. Theres some other stuff that I'm forgetting. I did a report on it for school.
