My fave movie & book is The Two Towers. My favorite scene is when they have the battle at Helm's Deep. And when Gollum and Sam make rabbit stew. "Now all we need are some taters." "What are taters?" "Oh, You know, po-ta-toes." ~Aiden Brooks~

Yah, that was funny.

My favorite move has got to be the 1st one. I'm not sure why, it just has a certain feel to it that I prefer to the others. I have read the first two and the Hobbit, but have yet to read RotK. Of the 3 I have read, though, I would have to say I like the Hobbit the best.

My favorite is the first one. I read the hobbit a long time ago. The director of the Hobbit is Guillermo Del Toro. (hellboy movies, Pans Labyrinth)

Has anyone here heard of the Silmarillion? It is a prequel to The Hobbit, and the first book by J.R.R. Tolkein. (Published by Christopher Tolkein, after his father's death because he never quite got around to organizing the book)
Anyways, it takes place in the first age of Middle Earth.

(I know, I'm a total nerd!)

Oh yeah, I've heard of it. I really want to read it, but I haven't seen any copies around. I've read the Children of Hurin, which takes place in the second age. (I think.) I am also a total LotR nerd. :)

I tried reading the Silmarillion, but I never finished it. I love LOTR! The books are better than the movies. It's funny, I get so mad when someone calls Orodruin 'Mount Doom'. It's Orodruin (at least in Elvish it is....)!!!!

My favorite book and movie was definately the TWo Towers. You cant beat helms deep. Especially when you have legolas sliding down a set of stairs on an urukhai shield

Sorry bud but the 2T was terrible!( Legolas was the reason) But the best is (in my eyes) ROTK.

as cool as legolas is, he has some pretty bad lines. like at the end of ROTK...
"We can draw Sauron's eye away, keep him blind to all else."
then legolas decides to play Captain Obvious...
"A diversion."

ROTK was the most boring. FRodo and sam in mordor was so boring. And the batle of minas tirith can in no way compare to the battle of helms deep. I mean really were their any ents? No, didnt think so.

Listen beb. I have nothin against Helms Deep( I actually sort of like it) But I just like Gondorian culture and society SO much more. And the ents really weren't in the battle. BTW does Helms Deep have trolls and Mumakil? Or maybe even a Soldier of the Dead? Nazgul? Grond? Heads being tossed over the wall? The Witch King? Siege towers? Sigh.... you could probably say the same thing about H D ( ladders, berserkers,etc.) but this is all opinion. You may like Ents more but I may just happen to adore Mumakil,(until they are charging towards you that is).

"The Fellowship of the Ring" is both my favorite movie and book of "The Lord of the Rings" series. Both that book and that film also happen to be my favorite movie and book to this day! The characters, scenes and dialogue were pure genius, and I love the overall storyline as well. The video may have differed from the book, but in rather small sections and in all it stayed rather true to J.R.R. Tolkien's writing rather well - Better then any of the other movies, from the series, and the books they were supposed to be based off.

ROTK boring? When did you fall on your head?
I found Two Towers to be the most boring, because it was in the middle. FOTR was cool because of the journey, and all of the different places. ROTK was just EPIC, with the Rohirrim riding down the hill.
I personally think that the plot of LOTR was more of a tool, one to let Tolkien express the world he had created. The plot is awesome, I do admit. The characters, dialogue, and rich lore all add to the magnitude. But I think that LOTR was more about the world, than the plot.

Have some patience with them, because it takes a while until things really start happening when you read it for the first time. In the books it takes 9 whopping years until Frodo goes on his trip, but it doesn't put all of that into days, which is lucky. Make sure your paying attension when you read it, or you will read things, but you wont know what youve just read!

A very good book. Go ahead an read it!

You are terribly wrong in that aspect, Friend. They may be one story, but they are made up of three movie releases, you have to watch three disks of media to get the whole story. The same goes for the books; Tolkien wrote three volumes of reading. They are known in libraries and book stores as three books, but we know they are one story. If you want to be REALLY specific, each volume is made up of two halves which are called "Books", because Tolkien originally wrote and published each book in two parts... How fun it would be to own a six-book collection!

Actually, it was one book, but it was too expensive in the days of its publishing to make a book of that size, so they made it into three parts: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Tolkien hated the last one because the name gave away the ending!

Yep...
And if you look at the page numbers in The 50th anniversary edition, then the Fellowship starts at 1, but the Return of the King ends at 1337 (Not counting Appendices).
I think that LOTR is one book, and there are three "parts".

Hes right about it being one book. But they printed it in three volumes for length. Think about it. If it were one movie it would be ike 8 hours.
