Welcome to Planet Tolkien :) 1000 times? Yikes. And how many times have you read the book?
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

Is this the first time we saw TTT...... same as the one about FotR?

I enjoyed Theoden et al tremendously...... even with the changes made...... Loved Helm's Deep and nearly burst when the elves arrived. It was a big WOW WOW WOW.... and then I remembered there were no elves at Helm's Deep (apart from Legolas). But it really worked for me, especially the sadness at the elves dying fighting for men. I know it wasn't in the book blah blah blah but it did portray the bond between elves and Men as seen in the Last Alliance with Isildur and whatsit and thingy and Sauron and the finger.

I was, however, bitterly disappointed at how Faramir was portrayed. For me those changes did not work.

Loved Gollum. Loved the chats he had with himself.

Overall there was more I enjoyed than disliked. I left the cinema feeling extremely awed and red eyed.

1000 times? Dude, you have serious issues. I think it's time you got out of the house.

I liked TTT, Helm's Deep was the best part of the movie. Didn't like how they messed up Faramir and turned him into a partial enemy to Frodo and Sam.
I will never raise the white flag.

A 1000 times! Jeez, that's getting on for twice a day, every day for the year and a half since it came out. You may have got excellant value from whatever you paid for the DVD/video, but maybe you should consider getting a life. :elfshocked:

1000 times? You are either an alien or someone who has lived to be 6,020,003!
i just happen to be doing a marathon as well. But a much longer and more different one. I'm going to read TLOTR on my birthday. That'll be 12 times, and I'll be turning 13. Then again at Christmas. And that'll be 13 times, and I'll be thirteen. And then I'll read TLOTR every year at my birthday! Then I won't have to remember how many times I've read it. It'll be my age! But it'll take discipline, cause I really WANT TO READ IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

:mad2: :evil: :boom: :veryevil: :disturbed:

Another thing that struck me when I first saw TTT was the sheer scale of everything! Man, it was phenomenal! I had to watch all the extras when the dvd came out just to see how they managed it with models and fight scenes. The detail is unbelievable and part of what makes it such a great film.
