Me, either! Saw the making of it, last night... If the movie lives up to the previews it'll pry get Best Movie for the next three years running.

They filmed the entire trilogy over a two year period, and are apparently planning to release one a year.

I want them all, now!!!!!

They finished tham all already? The last one may look a little dated when released then not that it will be a problem.

They filmed all three books in a two year filming session in New Zealand. It might be a bit dated, but I think filming the entire series at once will add alot to the continuity of the movies...

I am sure it will fall short of the book, movies always do. However, it is the freakin' lord of the rings, and I will not, I repeat, WILL NOT, miss it.

My review will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.

You guys are like those psycho losers who come into BK and go crazy with the little Lord of the Rings toys and goblets, they also buy a medium drink, just so they can have the cup that has the guy on it. *rolls eyes* some guy yelled at my because i wasn't calling the goblets by their real named ..I was like "we have the wizard, the ranger and the elf" and he gave me the dirtiest look and told me o should start calling them buy whatever their characters names are.

OOO yeah OK psycho!

Although it is always the case that the film never equals the book it was based on, I have the feeling that this trilogy will come as close as any in history.

During the 'making of' special they aired, they showed a scene that hadn't been aired previously. It was in the Mines of Moria, just as they begin hearing the orc drums, up through when the orcs and the cave troll break through the doors they barricade. It played out just as the scene I pictured in my head while reading the book. It's amazing what they've done with it.

As far as the TV previews, every time they flash a scene I can name exactly where in the book it occurs. I'm getting a very, very good feeling about this film.

Hmm.....well as a matter of fact....

I have read the book and I have seen the old anime. I must say, the book is one of the best books I have ever read. The old movie, I thought could be much much better, However the new movie I am looking forward to. From the trailors and the specials on it, the movie looks very very good. So yes, I'm looking forward to it. And I do hope they show Sauron's background a bit more.

Saw the movie last night!!!! ! It was really very entertaining and well done I think...of course i read the trilogy years ago and as a result have very little memory of the books. I'll have to go back and read them again and give a new verdict on the movie so as to give a proper comparison.
