Bored of the Rings by Martin99 on 1 March 2004 11:15am
 

Am I the only person out there not to have seen the Lord of the Rings, and all the rest of them?
Peter Jackson picks up another bundle of Oscars (surely he's got so many now, he could spare one for me..I need a door stop)and I have not seen his movies.
Am I missing out or saving my sanity..?

Have a nice day yawl..

<:)))))<><

Personally, I think you are saving your money. I saw the first one and enjoyed it, but that was enough for me. I'm so glad that the Oscars are over for this year and that LOTR is finished so that we can move on to next year without them. We don't have to be bored with another year of LOTR talk. The Oscars were very boring as well, because the buzz was that LOTR would sweep them due to it being their last year and the Academy wanting to reward it for it's total work as a trilogy.

Don't like to offend those who are fans of LOTR, but it's definitely time to move on.

SHUT IT YOU FOOLS!
don't complain about the most successfull and best trilogy ever made! The Return of the king is now the 2nd most successfull film ever after Titanic and deserves to be!

Well, THANK YOU for being so offensive, Tominator. I didn't offend YOU! Real nice way to disagree.....

SHUT UP is something I was taught not to say to anyone, let alone an elder. Have you no respect for people?

Well, tominator should probably have used a less antagonistic phrase, but even non-LOTR fans can't fail to recognize the impact these 3 films have had on people around the world & on the process of film making. The sheer scale & success of the endeavor was what was rewarded last night at the Oscars. It's taken 5-6 years to bring these legendary books to life & I don't think discussion is going to suddenly stop just because the Oscars are over (the 3rd dvd is still yet to be wwwwwwweleased!).

Heck, *we're* still talking about MPs Around the World in 80 Days & that's been over with for *15* years!!

All i can say is Aragorn your a stud!! anyone out their who looks like him-reply :-) the LOTR is the best films i have ever seen and i didnt think there will be any films that will EVER exceed them. I'm gutted becus now ive seen them all ive got no films to look forward to-I think the only thing that i was disapointed with and i use that phrase loosely- was in the return of the king-when Aragorn goes into the cave-it was nothing like the game on the XBOX where you had to kill the ghost bloke- god that game was hard !! an also i thought there was gonna be alot more longer battle scenes-there was a big build up but it was a little bit of a let-down.

"I do" (holding up a carboard cut out mask of Viggo up in front of my face).

I cannot agree so much with the LOTR films hype. I did enjoy the "Return of the King" movie much more than the other two though. It had a different vibe about it,and was paced much better than the other two. I also think Shore's scores ("It's the man with the Scores...Shore's Scores") are way over praised. The only one that i enjoyed was his score to ROTK. I virtually fell asleep during the first movie (in the cinema too) and although the Helms Deep scenes in the "Two Towers" were very emotional and full of heroic excitement, i think the first 2 films as a whole were actually quite mediocre and badly paced throughout apart from the Return of the King. I really do think that we "will" have films that will exceed them. Maybe not in terms of size. But in terms of quality. Infact, we're getting them all the time. The first two LOTR movies were mediocre (imo) and only the ROTK saved me from dismissing them into forgetting them after watching them . Now playing "The White Tree" (just incase i've upset any hardcore fans)

Apologie accepted, Tom. And I agree ttally with you Sminobe, We DO recognize the trilogy as a great piece of work. And I did say it was rewarded for the totality of the work as a Trilogy, so we are in total agreement. it's just that it's boring if there's no chace for other works to be recognized simply becasue one dominated the entire show. All I've heard for 24-7 is LOTR, no matter where I turn---TV, Radio, Papers, News Magazies.... and so on. Yes, we are still takking about ATWED and other Michael projects, but it's never hadthe overwhelming presence of a fictional movie.
