what words can describe the brilliant mind of peter jackson; the world i imagined as i read these books became reality with these movies... fantastic, wonderful, heart-breaking, dangerous and wild these three movies are a must to see....
The best movie in the history of mankind (my life's history that is). Absolutely stunning in every way. Am always willing to watch it over and over again. Just loved it. I gotta say, that this is the... Read more one movie that makes Orlando Bloom the hottest guy on earth (MMMMMMMMM).
Wonderful movie, much preferred it to the one that went to the cinemas - it had some bits in it that I felt were important.
It is everything and more. The best movie made in a long long time. Peter Jackson and his team have outdone themselves.
Another great movie for Peter Jackson. Tthe man has borought to life the last installment of a classic story.
Better than the theatrical release. such an amazing film
The last part of the Lord of the Rings series and the only one to win an Academy Award, The Return of the King picks up where The Two Towers leaves off but this means that several scenes from The Two... Read more Towers are included here at the expense of some scenes from Return of the King - notably the Scouring of the Shire.
Although this was done to make the movie fit within a certain time limit it has the unfortunate affect of taking away one of the more important aspects of the book and, for this reason, I am less satisfied with Return of the King than with the other two movies. I believe the best movie in the series and the one most deserving of the Academy Award is The Two Towers.
Return of the King has spectacular battle scenes, great special effects and tells the story well while retaining the chronological order of events as outlined in the books. It retains the elements of loyalty, humour and friendship that were established in the Two Towers and ends with the confirmation that Aragorn is indeed the king and the legitimate ruler of Gondor.
The last scene of the movie is done for the audience and actually compresses two separate events into one. In the movie Bilbo and Frodo leave together but in the books these two events happen separately. However, this is done well and brings the movie to a close in a very satisfactory manner. Overall a very good movie but not the best in the series.
The conclusion in the Lord of the Rings series ... what can I say ... I know how about this ...
Everyone needs to watch this !!!
I really enjoyed the extended version. Flowed much better and the addition of scenes/moments really developed character relationships and enhanced the storyline. Wonderful.
Just brilliant. Fantastic viewing. For anyone who enjoys fantasy, magic, and beauty....these movies are tops. Even my teenagers sat sitll throughout the entire film.
